    Exactly. I get the trademark and copyright thing. EAA need to walk away from 3 of their four gripes (Beer, girls, "Airventure"). The logo thing, I think they may have a leg to stand on. That said,...

    Thing is, you CANNOT let lawyers run your business. Lawyers are great for advice, but they have a desire to do lawyerly things, not resolve things or walk away when appropriate.

    Walk out the main gate, cut right until you hit W Waukau then walk West. SOS will be on your right, 1/8 mile outside the fence.

    The complaint specifically mentions bikini wearing girls (women?) serving beer and the EAA's family oriented atmosphere. Given that several of the vendors inside the fence use provocatively dressed...

    A) You're right.
    B) EAA is being heavy-handed (again) and apparently the SOS brothers have chosen to act on principle, rather than based on taking the easy path. The SOS brothers have a history...

    Do they sell beer, brats, and other food at reasonable prices from 11 AM (or whatever) until midnight?

    The "inside the fence" prices stink, the food is average at best, and the EAA concessions...

    I just skimmed the complaint.

    Pitiful. Whether EAA wins in court or obtains a settlement, this is an over-reach by the EAA. I'm extremely disappointed that they are so <I don't like this word>...

    I've been at the SOS tent dozens of times and just looked at all of my pictures from that property. I couldn't find a single example of EAA logos being used. Now, if EAA takes exception to the Beer...

    I don't see why EAA can't play well with others on this. Airventure should be a financial win for everyone in and around Oshkosh. The SOS folks have found a niche EAA doesn't want to play in (i.e....

    Great movie. Love the segue into and out of WWII.

    The High and the Mighty is a personal favorite, given that John Wayne whistles "I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech" after a climatic moment.
