CFO Lunch Oshkosh

Thursday, July 25, 2024

To register your plans to attend this gathering, please fill out the form below.

It is always good to get back to Oshkosh again! We have enjoyed a great time with our CFO family across the years and look forward to returning. WE WILL HAVE SHIRTS THIS YEAR!

Pre-registration is always important to avoid standing in a line for on-site registration.

Our lunch will be as usual: on Thursday at the SOS Brothers tent. This location is sometimes referred to as the Beer Tent, the Big Yellow Tent, the Bikini Bar or even The Place Under the Big Beer Balloon. Although take note, often our tent is actually white.

You may have noticed this property as a private parking option on the main drive into the EAA grounds, the very last private property on the left side. We understand that the traffic pattern may change from year to year, although SOS Brothers say that they will be operating as usual, including parking cars.

To reach our tent on foot, just walk straight west from the north side of the main control tower (by the FAA building) down Waukau Road, which will take you past the north side of the Bus Center. Cross to the north side of that road along the way, continue west and cross the beltline road past the flaggers, then across a little wooden bridge and you're on the SOS Brother's grounds. Walk past the main tent to the next tent west and watch for our banner.

As in previous years, we will have a large tent for ourselves and the meal will be served directly out of the Sosnoski brothers kitchen. We usually eat here at least a couple of times during the show and have always found their food to be excellent. You will also be able to purchase an adult beverage with lunch if you'd like.

If you have never been to the CFO lunch at Oshkosh, please take a look at the report from 2022 or see the the report from 2010 for more info.

We don't usually do a substantial program at this event, but we do hear from some CFO sponsors with interesting Cardinal product news and discuss some of the things we've seen at Oshkosh which are of interest to those of us who own and operate Cardinals. Plan to stay and converse afterward if you choose.

If you're going to be in Oshkosh, please join us for this event! It will be a fun time!
