Default Summer Fly-In at Moraine (HGs welcome)

I just met an enthusiastic group that is putting on quite an event at Moraine Air Park July 6 and 7. They are pushing any type of open-air flying and I pitched having some hang glider towing and they were excited about it. I ran this by Rick already, about having a tug there. John, if you wanted to take a break from training and bring the tandem glider, you would probably have people lined up for rides/lessons.

EAA Chapter 48 is providing the insurance for the event.

They're going to have camping, bon fires, good food, movies at night, ultralights, PPGs, light experimentals, hopefully a big hang glider turnout, balloons, balloon glows at night, etc...

Any thoughts? Any desire to attend???

Good opportunity to promote the club!

I can see if they can find a balloonist to pull you up, but I would like to see a tug there so people can witness how hang gliding is done in the flatlands.

I'll bring the Raven! However we will need at least 7 more pilots to break the record. Unless we go for highest double drop.

I'm going to try and get hold of the balloonists that expressed an interest in coming to the event to see if one or more are willing pull up some gliders. If any of you know a balloonist, don't hesitate to make your own arrangements.

Some scooter tows would be cool (hint, hint). The runway has grass next to it and is over 3000'. Even demonstrations on scooter training would be cool and would probably pull in some students.

Can you please help me understand where on the king post the attachment point is? Or is the attachment directly to the keel through the hole in the sail from which the king post protrudes?
