    The Monday night dinner is open to Caravan participants ONLY. Each Caravan participant would register with their lead, I believe. I know that reservation spots are getting tight.

    I swear I'm cursed.

    So glad you are okay! That is the most important part.
  15. Can't believe that I am already organizing and packing for my annual trip to OSH. I put together a schedule and thought it might be helpful to post. A couple of requests: 1) If you are going to be at OSH on Saturday morning and you would be willing to announce as the Mooney Caravan arrives [approx noon] please let me know. I can get you up on the announcer's stand and you will have a bird's eye view of the over 60 Mooneys landing in formation. 2) If you or your plus one, or your totally awesome teenagers are able to help in the Mooney Ambassadors/Girls booth in Hangar D please let me know. OTJ training provided and you will get some cool swag for the help. We will be in hangar D, which is the big hangar across from Mooney International.
