Anyone interested in static towing in Tipton Friday or Saturday? South wind 8 mph both days, but chance of storm on Saturday (there will be lift, just avoid the cloud suck)

I'd love to, but have obligations all three days this weekend. Plus my mom-in-law is visiting, that'd be a very bad form to just disappear to go flying! :-) :grrrrrr:

If you go to the 500 E. road I will need to call the land owner to let him know you will be setting up gliders. He said we could set up in his yard. I don't know who owns the fields surrounding the road. So be careful about landing in crops. Also, I saw yesterday, that the hay has been cut at the fairgrounds, so should be good for scooter towing there for a while now.

If needed, I could come out and drive tows after 10am Friday or anytime Saturday. However I am having severe pain in my right upper abdomen that would keep me from flying. Just hoping it isn't anything serious and will go away on its own. I'll keep watching this post, but keep me updated if not posting on here.

I stopped at the house at the south end of the road and the young man at the house said he thought it would be fine to set up gliders in the yard.

Today was a nice way to kick off a new year of local flying, even if it is a little late in the season. Myself, Patrick and James met at the new road northeast of Tipton around 1:30 p.m. We met the owner of the home on the north end and he was very welcoming and is nice as he could be. After getting Patrick's glider set up, James was the first one up. Patrick's static tow system worked great as expected. The road is excellent with my only complaint being that when that tar gets hot it sticks to everything! Kent showed up around 3:00, and he and Patrick both got to do a ride along during a tow. Next time out hopefully they'll both get to drive one. Kent and I both decided not to fly today, but I'll definitely be ready by this next weekend. I think both James and Patrick each had four or five flights each. With James taking flight of the day, with the highest climb after tow.
Kent is talking about getting his scooter tow out at the Tipton fairgrounds next Sunday if the weather cooperates. I believe Patrick has said he is in, and I'm definitely in as long as no more unforeseen pain sneaks up on my poor aging body! Like I said, a great day to be out with friends and fellow flyers. Let's try to get a good group out next Sunday. Clear clear clear!
