    Randy, I heard that they might have shuttles at Oshk --oh, I mean Airventure. Maybe one of those passes close by.

    What's this you say? Shuttles? Trams? Now THAT is something I'll have to investigate!

    Yea, along the same lines as far as I am concerned that big white building in Champaign where they play basketball is the Assembly Hall, I don't care what some insurance company paid them to call it something else.

    Anyone know an address for the Sosnoski family? I'd like to send them a few bucks to help with their legal expenses. Better yet, do you think there's enough interest to support a Go Fund Me page?

    Logical, conciliatory idea.

    Better idea: body paint it on their bellies.

    Don't know about an address but they do have a Facebook page. Also, you could check tax records and that will give you the address of the property owner.

    Why???
    Companies are involved in trademark infringement lawsuits all the time. Trademarks are what make them commercially recognizable and viable. SOS obviously ripped off the EAA symbol logo and EAA has AIRVENTURE as a legally registered trademark with the USPTO. Look at the pics posted earlier in this thread. Just because it’s the Sosnoski family you think that EAA doesn’t have the right to protect its image? If there is still bad blood as some contend then the Sosnoski brothers are either arrogant or stupid or maybe a little bit of both to have set themselves up for this.
    There are over 100 bars and taverns registered in the Oshkosh area. Some of them are real dives. SOS may not be the classiest operation but I do think EAA’s claim that they are damaging the family environment is a stretch.
    Bottom line......
    If you find EAA’s actions that onerous then vote with your feet and money.
