Visalia Aerotow March 17th (and maybe 16th)


The normal every 3rd Saturday for aerotowing should be taking place March 17th, if towplanes can be arranged for Friday the 16th, is anyone interested in 2 days of towing? With the price of gas, it makes it more worthwhile to get an extra day of towing in. I and many missed out last month and want to make up for it by getting in 2 days. The weather should be perfect. (Edit, fixed the dates)

Cannot make March but planning for April and May. Two days for April would sure be better for me.

I need to check with Chris Pratt to OK Friday but previous experience has proven Friday should not be a problem. The biggest issue will be where we have dinner Friday night. Bring anything that will fly. I have a Spitfire, a Denight Special, a Foam Eagle. a Windex 1200c, and a 40% Pirat that need all need a so-called re-maiden flight, and maybe something else that I have not bought yet!

Since this is such a great idea and Scott Marnochs says he could "tow" in April (right Scott?), maybe we can do the same in April, I need to check but hopefully there are no conflicting dates April 20th and 21st. I may be wrong but I think Los Banos is the next weekend?

I just checked the weather and they are calling for rain next Friday and Saturday, so lets keep a watch on the weather, we should have a better idea by next Wednesday. Rain, Rain go away!

Designing something...
I believe Los Banos is on April 21-22 this year. Here is where I got this information: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...8&postcount=22.

I will plan to be there for some towing on Friday Morning. I like the two day special . It's a 7 hr drive for me and it would nice to spend the extra day.

You guys are killing me. I've already asked for 5 more days off this year than I will earn. And I haven't even asked off for the Fall aerotow yet. I gotta start buying lottery tickets.

And yes, every single day off is for an RC event of some kind; thanks for asking.

Rick
