Now that the Cumberland Spring Soar For Fun is in it's final day, next event up in the east is the NE event in Salem, CT.

The field is looking great, the tugs are ready. We're looking forward to welcoming another big crowd in 2012.

Just a reminder that the New England Scale Sailplane Aerotow is set for this coming weekend, May 18-19-20 at the RC Propbusters field in Salem, CT.

We're getting a great turnout with folks from DE, PA, MD, WV, CT, NY, MA, RI and a few other locations! Should be a good crowd flying, a bunch of spectators, food for sale at the field, 50/50, raffle, etc. Any sailplane that can be aertowed and all electric-power sailplanes are welcome. No winches or hi-starts.

I hope you can join us or stop by for a visit!
