June 19, 2013 - EAA's Return of Champions celebration at AirVenture Oshkosh 2013 continues to draw registrations - currently approaching 35 - and organizers are encouraging former champions wishing to participate to sign up by Friday, July 12.

Owners who register by July 12 and bring their award-winners to Oshkosh will receive a complimentary weekly wristband, special display signage, and a commemorative plaque. If you miss the registration deadline but bring your Lindy winner, we certainly welcome all comers but will not be able to provide the plaque or signage mentioned above.

Latest figures indicate 18 homebuilts, three rotorcraft, nine vintage, two ultralights, two seaplanes, and three warbirds are registered thus far.

Return of Champions is a weeklong celebration recognizing the best of the best - recipients of coveted EAA Gold and Silver Lindy Awards, designating aircraft that were judged as Grand and Reserve Grand Champions.

Honored aircraft will be spotlighted through daily aerial performances and special parking displays on Phillips 66 Plaza as well as in their respective areas. Phillips 66 Plaza will also host special "Champions in Review" sessions daily through Saturday, featuring select champions from the various judging categories, which include homebuilts, rotorcraft, seaplanes, ultralights, vintage, and warbirds.


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