Our weather station has been repaired

Our anemometer had worn out, and had to be replaced. Our weather station is now back in service.

National insurance issues

Due to new insurance requirements, MCHGA has agreed to include paraglider pilots in the club. Effective immediately, paragliding at Mt. Tam will be administered and regulated by MCHGA instead of BAPA.

1st Aid Box has moved

The MCHGA first aid box has been moved to a new location, by the big tree where we land. Click here for map and info.

FCC Warning!

The FCC has warned hang gliding and paragliding pilots not to operate hand-held radio transceivers without a license. Failure to heed this warning could result in criminal penalties ranging from $7,500 to $10,000! For information about obtaining an Amateur Radio license, click here.

Site update:

  • Sand has accumulated on our beach, this year. High tides are not currently an issue.
  • The windsock at launch has been lost or stolen. Someone may have forgotten to take it down after flying.
  • We now have a windsock posted at the end of the alleyway, for landings. (No, it's not the windsock from launch.)
  • The Seadrift sign has been replaced! Beware of this obstacle at the north end of our LZ, and land south of it.


Next Meeting: Thursday, June 7, at 7:00 pm

Club meetings have been rescheduled for the first Thursday of each month. (All meetings include an informal no-host dinner.) For our next meeting, we will be returning to the Cheesecake Factory in Corte Madera. Map and directions.
