No  :D  We'll talk about that next week end  :D

Oh, and received a phone call this morning, from someone who shall remain nameless (for now anyway  :lol:  :P ), asking where everybody where?  :P  :P

Serious cabin fever, went a week ahead of the meeting!  :lol:  :lol:

Er,…what’s happening regarding the aerotow in July? :?:

 Any ideas anyone??? Is there going to be an aerotow?  will it be on the advertised date?

Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

hi all,

re aerotow in july......

i was speaking to andreas balsiger recently and he has offered the use of his site for aerotowing on the week end of 12/13 july.

this is a huge site and is well suited for a/t.  lots of jet meets have taken place there and it's very well looked after.

camping is also available on site but i don't know what facilities are there and i'm sure there must be lots of b&b's in the area.

if anyone is interested, give me a call before next weekend so i can let andreas know if we're taking up his offer or not.

regards,

gb

Hi Gerry,

You can of course count me in.
Now, we have to sort out one crucial element! The tow planes!

Who have any available that will be available to come over that week end?
With towing experience will be a plus :) but we can also change it to a tow training session too, happy to give a few tips and tricks and put my gliders on tows for that.

We will most certainly have a chat this week end with everybody present at Mt Leinster, so hopefully, that will keep the ball rolling!

If nobody interested, but if a few of Andreas club members want to give aerotow a try, happy to come over for that too.

Also, if something is organised, experience, and also recent one, shows that we need more than one tow plane on duty for the day/week end.
Unfortunately, I will have mine ready only in September/October, not before that :(

Anyone?

Guys,

Still no proper reply if we go ahead or not with the aerotowing in July!

Anyone??

I need to update the MACI calendar this week. Event date is approaching fast!

Or you want the date changed?
