                  Christian, will see y’all in South Carolina! I tried to register but it is ‘jacked up’ and won’t work. The AMA number field gives an error stating ‘email expected’??? Then when filled in as requested there is no ‘send’ button???

                    Think it is okay now...setting up forms is tricky and glitches seem to happen no matter how much care is taken. :-( sorry for the inconvenience.

                  We now have a good date for the second Apache Pass Aero Tow, October 14-17 2021. At this time we are finalizing the details and will provide them in the near future at this location. Apache Pass is an excellent multiuse RC flying facility located about 90 miles northeast of Austin, TX.

                  http://www.apachepass.com/rc-airplane-page.html

                  Pilots entry fee $50.00 for the event or $20.00 for each day. AMA membership required. We had a great time at our first event and we plan to do the same again this year. So come join us when we have some of the best thermaling conditions of the year.
