At the pilots meeting today, the CD pushed back grid time to 12:30 and the pilots meeting in the front of the grid to 12:45.

Release from Tow by Hal
Doing a electronic declaration for a 300/500k cross country flight is it possible to have the starting point be "Release from Tow" or does that require a written declaration. I use the 302.
