Usually during the summer months a group of pilots from Ohio visit Cloud 9 Aerotow operation in Michigan for some great flying and are usually rewarded with great conditions. The week of 

August 7 - 11, 2002 was another fun filled adventure. When I arrived at the field on Saturday morning there were 12 gliders already set up and pilots had many stories of great flights during the week. On Saturday, August 10, 2002, Mark Bolt of Pontiac Michigan had a challenging flight of 58 miles. Wednesday and Thursday were epic days with altitude gains to 6000 feet and many hours of airtime achieved. Photos of some of the pilots attending follow. If I missed catching you on film, please send me a photo by e-mail and I will be happy to include it below.
