Parks are closed
All parking areas and access roads are closed at Mt. Tamalpais State Park, Stinson Beach and our beach landing zone. Trails are open only to those who can reach them on foot or by bicycle. This means our flying site is essentially unavailable. MCHGA supports the shelter-in-place order, and hopes you will stay safe and healthy during this pandemic. 04/08/20
Last winter, storms caused serious erosion to our beach LZ. Although much of the sand returned over the summer, the sandbag steps are still in use, between our alleyway and the beach. 11/16/19
Our weather station has been repaired!
Once again, the anemometer on our weather station wore out and had to be replaced. That one lasted two years. Let's hope this one does better. 04/08/19
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
- Winter storms have removed a significant amount of sand from our beach, this year. As a result, high tides are restricting our LZ. Be sure to check tides before coming up to Tam. 01/19/19
- There is currently no windsock at launch. Bring your own, and be sure to take it with you after flying. 09/21/16
- 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. 03/03/20
Club meetings have been rescheduled for the first Thursday of each month. However, out of an abundance of caution, future club meetings will be held online during the shelter-in-place order. If you would like to attend our next virtual meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 5/6/20, and you will be provided with a link to join.
