Folk,

The inaugural South West Wales Aerotow will be held on 27th and 28th of April.

Please watch this space for details.

Tug pilots planning to attend, I would be VERY grateful if you could let me know, I won't hold you to it, but it would be fantastic to gauge numbers.

Flying will be dawn to dusk on a very private airfield with camping on site.

TBC, Elliot (07738 017203)

Hallo Elliot,
B&B booked in St Clears, I can bring my Viper electric tug, I'm good for towing up to around 500 feet, then hopefully all those Welsh red kites and buzzards will mark the lift...!
I'm planning on also visiting Carreg Cennen castle, Laugharne and Pendine Sands on the way or back - something I've always wanted to do.
Looking forward, Chris G

Hi Elliot, regards the flyer, your facebook prescence is a closed group, so can't see any details there, and the second page of the flyer appears to be blank. Could you post up some directions to the site and access times please, thanks. :D

Hi Antonia,

please do join the group, all the location stuff is there, you won't be spammed to death, we're a tiny club so not too much traffic on the FB page.

Second page of the flyer being blank is a PDF error, I'll amend :)

Anyhoo, let's play toy planes, here's some more detailed info, the site is thankfully difficult to find (for miscreants) so the attached PDF's should be sufficient to get genuine visitors in ;)

If you have a very large vehicle, there is alternative access to the field, but this will need to be evaulated closer to the time as it is a field and can suffer from heavy rainfall at the entrance. My work van is a MWB Transit and gets through the gate just - the other entrance allows a combine in, so no issues there. Please do keep this thread in mind closer to the date, I'll report on weather and conditions.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Best regards, Ell.

Dear all,

currently, the forecast for this weekend is strong westerlies, way too strong sadly for aerotowing. If anyone has made arrangements to travel and stay then I'll happily lead an expedition to Rhossilli, somewhere I've been meaning to visit for years.

Please drop me a line ellothowells at btinternet.com if you are planning to come over, obviously if no-one is/does, I'll go kitesurfing instead, now that does need some blow...

Take care and hope to see you in May/June for the re-arranged aerotow.

Ell.
