The tower controller at enid/woodring tower would not respond back to us, and would not clear us for the option. The controller said that by him telling us to make left closed pattern he did not need to clear us for landing or touch and go. Enid/woodring is a class D airport with an operating control tower. My understanding of 91.127 states that I must receive clearance from the tower controller before I/my aircraft touches the active use runway.
