Free Pizza

In an effort to improve attendance at club meetings, the club has decided to provide free pizza. RSVP required by 4/1/20 to See below for details.

Beach warning

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.

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.

Expanded membership

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.

Site update:

  • 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.
  • There is currently no windsock at launch. Bring your own, and be sure to take it with you after flying.
  • We now have a windsock posted at the end of the alleyway, for landings.
  • 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.


Next Meeting: Thursday, April 2 CANCELLED

Club meetings have been rescheduled for the first Thursday of each month. However, out of an abundance of caution, the April meeting will be cancelled because of the shelter-in-place order.
