2013 Southern Ontario Aerotow Schedule

The aerotow events shown here are for Southern Ontario, i.e., the area around Toronto and primarily westwards towards London. These events are hosted by the Canadian Model Aerotow Society (CMAS), and are sanctioned by MAAC, so you will need either MAAC or AMA to participate. If you are just interested in learning about aerotowing, by all means come on out and see it in action!

Please feel free to add news and updates to this thread on an ongoing basis. This is the place to ask for details, such as directions and accommodations, etc., from our veteran attenders. All dates are subject to change (although not anticipated ), so check back here often for updates (I will keep the list of events up-to-date by editing this Post Number One as required).

Thanks to Don Bailey, whose format I have shamelessly stolen

Possible Postponement

Possible postponement of this coming weekend's aerotow in Fergus Ontario due to wind in the forecast (both direction and speed could be problematic). Decision will be made tomorrow and posted here.

Postponed

As anticipated, the Fergus Aerotow scheduled for this weekend has been postponed to next weekend (June 1-2). The combination of cool weather coupled with winds in the mid-20's, gusting to 40k was enough

Hopefully see you next weekend!
