Bronco Fest Update & Special Offer
We are getting down to about three weeks to Bronco Fest and need to make some final arrangements for dinners, buses and things. So, if you are planning to attend, we need to have a head count for a few things, we don’t need payment right now but just a heads up that you are coming.
If you plan to attend either of the dinners on Friday or Saturday night, the lunch on Friday at the museum or the Lockheed tour on Thursday we need to know that.
We can also tell you the theme for the Friday night’s Flight Suit Diner as well. We tried to find a theme that would ties all the Vietnam Era people to our present day war fighters and discovered that even today and several conflicts since, US pilots refer to themselves as Yankee Air Pirates and wear patches similar to the ones some of you wore in SEA. So, given an old tradition of pirates “gathering” after the winter in the West Indies and Bahamas , our theme is “A Gathering of Yankee Air Pirates” so we will be conducting a pirate party for the Friday night Flight Suit Dinner, costumes and eye patches optional. Special “Yankee Air Pirate – Aviators Club” t-shirts will also be available along with other items.
Also, if you plan to attend Bronco Fest, we are having embroidered hats and shirts available.
The hats will be $15.00 with the attached logo embroidered on the crown and “Bronco Fest VII – 2009” on the side and will be black. The shirts will be a black polo type shirt in men’s and women’s sizes. The basic cost of the shirt with BF VIII logo will be $26.00. A pocket can be added for $5.00 and a callsign can be added for another $5.00, so a fully dressed out shirt will be $36.00. We will have some basic shorts available for sale, but we need a pre-event order for the customized shirt. Payment will be expected upon arrival at BF VII.
That is it for now, if you have already registered and are on the following list, your are set except for shirt or hat.
Otherwise, we need an email from you:
