April 9, 2012 - For those of you that use the EAA Warbirds of America campground at AirVenture, there is a new pre-registration process and new rates for AirVenture 2012.
In order to manage the limited number of improved camper sites, EAA Warbirds of America appointed a Campground Committee in 2011 to further develop policies and procedures. In January 2012, the Campground Committee made the following recommendations. There is a new pre-registration process, designed to take away much of the uncertainty in obtaining an “improved” camping space. Tent campers are not affected.
Your EAA Warbirds of America membership must be current and valid through AirVenture 2012 to rent a site in the Warbirds Campground.
A pre-registration form will be developed and put into place for 2012.
Pre-registrations for improved sites (with electric & water) will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Tent camping does NOT require pre-registration.
Priority will be given in this order: (1) Warbird volunteers with a minimum of three years of service, (2) pilots who bring Warbird-type aircraft to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012, and (3) EAA Warbirds of America members-at-large.
Warbird volunteers will need to coordinate with their Area Chairperson in order to pre-register for a Warbirds Campground site. A special form will be emailed to qualified volunteers in March, 2012.
Pilots who bring a warbird-type aircraft to EAA AirVenture will need to call in advance, (920) 426-4826 and pre-register, starting April 2, 2012.
EAA Warbirds of America members-at-large will need to call in advance, (920) 426-4826 and pre-register, starting May 1, 2012.
Once the Warbirds Campground is filled, pre-registrations will no longer be accepted and campers will be directed to EAA’s Camp Scholler. Visit www.warbirds-eaa.org for updates.
For Camp Scholler information visit: www.airventure.org.
Arranging a rental with an outside agency does not exempt one from pre-registration. It is suggested that one obtain their pre-registration first.
Once on site with the motor home, trailer, or pop-up camper, Warbird Members must register with the EAA Warbirds Campground Staff.
Once you submit pre-registration, your information will be reviewed and approved before confirmation. Once confirmed, you will be advised and your credit card will be charged.
Notice: Warbird Area Improved Campsites are full at this time. Tent camping remains available on a first-come, first-served basis.
