Good afternoon
Not sure if this is the right place for this but Im interested in tug towing and thought a good place to start would be to attend an event and see what's involved.I live in redditch so does anyone know of any events/meeting locally ish for me to attend?
Thanks in advance

  Hi Andy
  Like Steve say's it's one of the best venues for Tug Towing On Sat June 21st/Sun 22nd  there
  will be people to help & give good advice on what tug, how to set it up for towing & advice on
  towing it's self, you will be able to have a go with a towing team & a person will give you some
  instructions of how to go about it, not saying you don't know, some people do towing full size
  but have problems in model form. Bring your partner or a partner with you there will be food on
  both days, there is places to stay local if you come for the week end.

              Pro/AM towing  22nd/23rd  June  10.30 ish start :-))

Thanks for the reply.travelling up isn't the end of the world.only couple of hrs in the car, and as you say if you get the answers advise it's worth it.unfortunately I work Saturdays so won't b able to make kinsbury open day.

Hi Andy
You can not get away with it that easy you could come to Balne Moor on the Sunday June 23rd
it would be worth the extra miles.
 
Cheers
