Our weather station has been repaired
Our anemometer had worn out, and had to be replaced. Our weather station is now back in service. 05/18/17
Winter storms have caused serious erosion to our beach, this year. As a result, medium to high tides are restricting our LZ. Be sure to check tides before coming up to Tam. 01/28/17
National insurance issues
Due to new insurance requirements, MCHGA has decided to include paraglider pilots in the club. Effective immediately, paragliding at Mt. Tam will be administered and regulated by MCHGA instead of BAPA. 05/06/16
1st Aid Box has moved

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.

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 Pacific Catch restaurant in Corte Madera. Map and directions.
