Preparations for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2010 continue at a brisk pace, despite the rain the Oshkosh area has experienced in the past week. People and planes are still coming, and EAA is welcoming all, though some may find themselves temporarily displaced to alternate locations until convention grounds dry. Some of the EAA plane, camping, and auto parking areas are temporarily closed, but dry weather is forecast for the next three days, which should allow those areas to continuously open for parking.

Area airports that normally shoulder the aircraft overflow every year are available now and have good conditions for aircraft parking.

In Oshkosh, Camp Scholler continues to welcome tent campers, but camping trailers and motor homes are being escorted to local hard surface lots until ground conditions improve. EAA has coordinated with local businesses and schools to permit camping in nearby parking lots until more areas of Camp Scholler can be opened.

For those driving to AirVenture 2010, EAA's two main parking lots are in good condition, and more auto parking lots are expected to have good availability by the time the convention opens on Monday, July 26.

EAA is encouraging all AirVenture attendees to stay up to date with conditions on the ground by following EAA Facilities Manager Steve Taylor's Blog, which will be updated frequently with information on the condition of the grounds. Those flying to AirVenture should monitor the Aircraft Parking Status page for the latest information on what aircraft parking areas are open.

The EAA can-do spirit is alive and well as volunteers, exhibitors, and staff adapt and improvise to bring AirVenture 2010 to life.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
