This announcement is intended to share with the soaring community the fact that aerotow is fast growing here in the Eastern USA.

If you have a scale sailplane tucked away, time to get it airworthy. If you've been interested in aerotow, I can guarantee that each event is VERY beginner friendly and would prove a great opportunity to learn more about this corner of our hobby. If you want to get started in building/flying scale, this crowd is certain to become your new best friends!
