    Early in the morning is an option. I think it opens at 8 am.

    Per the NOTAM, the airfield opens for arrivals at 7AM CDT and closes at 8PM CDT.

    Yep, but be prepared for it not to be. Mornings aren't as much of a problem, but things can get dicey either because of weather, some incident on the runway, traffic saturation on the ground, the airshow, excessive amounts of departures (they usually won't turn on arrivals after the airshow until people get out). Also, there are things that can bollix up departures so don't cut it short before the airshow if you need to depart, sometimes we lose the ability to taxi guys out from vintage before the actual show starts.

    After you pick up your friend, when you are at your last stop before OSH, have a detailed briefing. Go through the NOTAM. Make sure you each understand your expectations (who is going to be flying, where each of you is going to look for traffic, changing frequencies, etc...). I put tabs on my copy of the NOTAM so that I can find each page quickly. Another suggestion is to not arrive at OSH low on fuel should you need to hold. I pick my last stop to be under an hour from OSH so that my tanks will be near full when I start the arrival.

    In 2018 I arrived on Saturday before the show started in late afternoon during a brief period of VFR. In 2019 I arrived on Friday evening before the massive storms arrived.
