Aerotow on October 20, Grantsville, 9am

There will be an aerotow event at Grantsville this Saturday, October 20, 2012. (rescheduled because of last week's rain)
Plan on around 9am.
We have 2 tow pilots lined up--Tom Hoopes and Mike Gibson.
Come on out to fly aerotow, electric, gas, glow, whatever on a nice BIG flat area.

If you need directions let me know and I will add the map--same place/map as the Soar Utah aerotow.

The weather predictions look great!

I am planning leaving early AM and when I get out to Grantsville and it is NOT flyable I will send an e-mail and call the people that I have #s for.

Thanks, Mike.

I looked at the weather report this morning and our flying area got hit pretty hard according to the radar map.

The following people contacted me about attending:
Tow pilots: Mike Gibson and Tom Hoopes
Glider pilots: Scott Hinckley, Allan McKay, Wid Tolman, Lee Chaplin, Bob & Dale Arrington, Craig Anderson, Everett Smiley, Chris Hahn, Dick Bean, Dave Mumford

Aero-tow

Welcome to the Grantsville lake aero-tow could not get down to road because of the mud and standing water. it must have rained just as much as it did in SLC. so unless you want tog et stuck I would say don come out its too wet.
DO NOT COME OUT TOO WET.

Aerotow rescheduled to October 20

I talked to Tom last night and we would like to reschedule the aerotow for next Saturday. The projected weather looks good and we have no other events scheduled.

How many of you can be there?
