Tow Rope Take-Up Reels by Nyal Williams
Does anyone have knowledge of approved reels for retracting tow ropes to the towplane after glider release? I have only heard of this and never actually encountered their use. They would be useful for avoiding trees, wires, fences, ILS approach antennae, etc.

European Delivery by Steve B
Has anybody picked up their glider in Europe and flown it prior to shipping? I am curious if it can be done without any expensive registration or tax in the country that it was manufactured in. Hey... as long as it is there in the middle of the summer and ready to fly... why not?
