Red Flag conditions at Tam
Our park will be closed to traffic beginning this afternoon, September 9 at 5:00 pm, because of high fire danger. The park is expected to re-open tomorrow, September 10 at 11:00 am. 09/09/21
Our weather station has been replaced
Our weather station has been replaced with a new unit of the same type. Everything is working properly, again. 03/24/21
Commercial instructors restricted
Due to insurance requirements, commercial flight instructors may no longer bring students to fly at Mt Tam, unless the instructor first satisfies three conditions: 1) they must provide site insurance for Tam, 2) they must not accept any compensation for their activities at Tam, and 3) they must be approved by the club. In the mean time, the club's novice hang glider program and the club's intermediate paraglider sponsorship program will resume using qualified non-commercial instructors and pilots. 01/08/21
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. 05/06/16
- There is currently no windsock at launch. Bring your own, and be sure to take it with you after flying. 09/21/16
- The sand level on our beach has stabilized at a medium-low level. Only the highest high tides encrouch on our LZ, but the sandbag steps are still in use between our alleyway and the beach. 03/01/21
- We now have a windsock posted at the end of the alleyway, for landings. 09/21/16
- The Seadrift sign has washed away, again! Please continue to observe the boundary that begins with the north side of our alleyway, and land south of it. 12/18/20
At a previous meeting, it was decided that we will try separating our Zoom meeting from our in-person meeting. Therefore, we will now be holding our in person meetings on the first Thursday of each month, and our Zoom meetings on the last Thursday of each month. This month, the Zoom meeting will be on Thursday, September 30th. The next in-person meeting will be at Pacific Catch in Corte Madera, on Thursday, October 7. Map and directions. If you would like to attend a meeting, either online or in person, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by the day before the meeting.
