I've been talking with Charlie Becker this past week. We're in the early stages of planning our 60th Anniversary Celebration this year at Oshkosh. Here's what we have so far ...

Oshkosh 2023

◦ “Real Estate” sign “Thorp T-18 60th” (EAA to provide)

◦ Thorp featured on the 2023 custom built patch (Lee to provide photo with a better planform)

◦ Homebuilts in Review (just west of homebuilt Flightline … 2 Thorps needed)

◦ Group Photo - perhaps after homebuilt donut breakfast

◦ Forum as usual in the home builders hangar (Lee to coordinate with Mark Forss)

◦ T-shirt (Marty Ashley has already made up one option) ... We may need to provide another

◦ Volunteer needed to fly in the homebuilt flyby

◦ Editorial story on the Thorp and perhaps a unique story about one Thorps journey (David Read) … thinking this is for the AirVenture daily paper

◦ Charlie to look into interest in a 60th Anniversary story in Sport Aviation , impact of the Thorp on EAA, Don Taylor etc …

◦ For those who want to camp in homebuilt camping there is space available to camp and still place airplanes on the Flightline (homebuilt camping … by pavilion)

Group dinner/lunch options

◦ Reserved tables during the homebuilders dinner

◦ Cookout at the homebuilt pavilion (Lunch)

◦ Dinner at the tailwind cafe (aces) … up to us to hold tables
