Default Oshkosh Canard Events

I understand there are a number of formal and informal canard events at Oshkosh this year. I don't know where any of them are but I will be at Oshkosh this year. I figured I would start a thread so folks can list the ones they know about all in one place.

Would the knowledgeable please chime in about what is happening on Burts big Thursday next week at Osh. Is it just a possible flyover and an awards ceremony in the afternoon? Is "the day" thing more or less than what I have described?

Others have asked privately, so as to arrive for Thursday, or wait for Friday and would really like to know. I would like to know also.

OK, I been looking at the schedule and the only canard-specific thing I've found in the Cozy forum that Marc does. However, if you search the schedule for "Rutan" you'll find that Burt & Dick Rutan and Mike Melville are giving alot of talks. Lots. These guys are going to be busy. Melville is giving a talk "Flying Rutan Designs" that should be good. Dick is doing "Cowboy flying over Mohave" (??) Burt is doing all kinds of different things. John Roncz is giving a talk as well. There will be alot to learn here.

Thanks but the question is specifically for Burts Thursday goings on. I guess I will just refer them to that schedule.

Yeah, there was a post on the Yahoo group by one of the event organizers about canard-related events and what he had done was post the schedule search results using "Rutan" as the search term. Maybe I can find it and post a link. I'll try.

I'd like to know more about what to expect too. I applied to fly in the Rutan Tribute showcase on Thursday. This is what I received from EAA -

<snip>
You are receiving this email because you expressed interest in flying in the Rutan Tribute on Thursday, July 28. It’s great that so many want to participate. Following is information from Joe Schumacher, our Air Boss, on requirements for flying.

1 - You must participate in a briefing at 11:00 am on Thursday morning, July 28, in the Hillard Flight Operations Building. You cannot fly if you do not participate in this briefing.

2 - Sometime prior to the briefing, you need to stop by the Hillard Flight Operations Building and show your pilot’s certificate and current medical. You do not need to show any insurance paperwork.
<snip>

The email didn't provide much detail and it seems like I won't find out until Thursday. I'm guessing it will be like the old days where different experimentals would fly in a circuit up 36R, turn abeam the tower or so to the East and then circle back around to come up 36R again.

Rumor has it that the Girrrls will have a listing of all canard related events at their location (which I believe is the Aircraft Spruce setup.)

I think someone is recording these and making them available on DVD. I'll let you know what I find out.
