March 28, 2013 - Reaction to EAA Vintage Aircraft Association's Round-Engine Rodeo plans at AirVenture 2013 has been extremely positive, according to Steve Krog, one of its main organizers of activities both in Oshkosh and at the preconvention staging area, Hartford Municipal Airport.

"The excitement is really building," he said. "We've heard from several people with new or nearly complete restorations as well as other unique aircraft who plan to attend." Although he did not want to announce any airplanes before confirmed, Krog noted that "an airplane appearing on the cover of the March Sport Aviation" is expected to be here.

Also expected, Krog noted, "The Redmond Boys from Minnesota (Rare Aircraft Ltd., Faribault, Minnesota) are anticipating up to five new restorations flying into Oshkosh."

The Round-Engine Rodeo is being billed as a "special round-up of classic radial-powered planes in the Vintage area." Participants will receive special handling, parking, and a package of incentives for pilots. One full day during the convention will be dedicated to the round-engine airplanes in the Vintage area - complete with period costumes.

That day, while not confirmed, could be Tuesday, July 30, as a "chuck wagon round-up" is planned for that evening, featuring dinner at the Vintage area's Tall Pines Cafe. Attendees are asked to come in period dress for the occasion.
