    Jeff Point had his new Breezy at Airventure 2018 giving rides. It had a cute placard in the back seat.
    Maybe Jeff can snap a photo to share?

    Illness is why I did not hang out. Did not want to transmit the bug to the whole group. Still fighting with it. Ugh. Hope the rest of you guys did not get it.

    Okay, I’m not the only one. This fella still had his wristband on last week.

    That's not a wristband, it's a medal.

    If you could get ahold of a 2019 wrist band and wear it from now through the show, you might be officially ate up. As much as I like to go, I cant wait to get that thing off my wrist.

    I hate them too.

    They came about because people were buying the passes - paper tags on a string that you could hook on a shirt button - then passing them to a friend through the fence to a friend.

    My hands are small enough and flexible enough I can "fix" the wristband at its largest size and have the ability to slip it on and off. So I do.

    It seems to me that there were more young people at Oshkosh this year than in recent years.

    Anyone else sense that?
