From what I have heard Red Tow is ready except John Scott wants to do the
first test flight. Maybe that could change with Blue Tow down. At least if
we make a tow request they will know someone wants to fly. If Wednesday
will work for anyone else I will make the request.
Just let me know.

Well, it seems like there is always a fly in the ointment. I went out to
Air Sailing to fly today, had my glider on the ready line, the tow plane
came out and did a run-up then an aborted take off. Then the towplane took
off, flew around the pattern once and landed, did a mag check and the
engine sounded awful...misfiring and popping. The towpilot put it in the
towplane hangar and went home. I put my glider back in the box. No
telling when we might have a working towplane again.

may be the best day. Thursday it may get a little on the Windy side.
What do you see on XC skies Omri ?
If any one wants to fly Wednesday let me know so we can get the tow pilot
request put in.
Tuesday looks to be the second best day to me if we can just get to the
