This card was found in the club mailbox. I believe these are the people directly across from our driveway.

New Refridgerator/freezer in LZ for All Members

The old (dead) freezer and filthy min-fridge have been removed and a new (slightly used) refrigerator/freezer has replaced them. Also the microwave oven has been placed on top. The whole stack is located to the right side of the soda machine for easy access. Everything is very clean and ready for us...

Re: Gridley Street Neighbors

Although the BOD totally supported this, the idea was brought to our attention by Cathy Thompson. She and her partners, Kat Shaw and Nancy Robertson, did a fantastic job as our events coordinators, giving us great events without breaking the bank. What a great last gesture on her (and partners) part...

Joe, Firstly, I agree with MOST everything Jim has stated. We would NOT accept any other liability insurance other than the USHPA's because we can't trust it to pay. As far as a $1,000,000 personal bond, I suppose we could consider that if and when it is presented. Secondly, we don't support USHPA, ...

The reason that we are not inviting non-USHPA flyers to drop in on SHGA property comes down to one thing -liability insurance. Although it is not a common occurrence, houses have been struck by hang gliders in the past and there is always the potential to injure a spectator. Our club is at risk of b...

Today I test flew the Saturn 167 that will be auctioned during the Dahlsten Cup on Sept 29th. Here are my impressions: First of all, I am lowering my opinion of the overall condition of the glider from very good to "good". The reason for lowering the overall rating is because the leading edge materi...

I like Janyce's post, looking for alternatives to serve the same purpose. I understand that there are strong feelings on this topic. But please state your opinions and leave the emotions and personalities out of it. We will be voting to either proceed with Joe's plan or go a different direction duri...

I agree that Sergey's artistic pieces are a great addition to our property. They make it even more unique that it already was.

And, just for the record, I am not taking sides here. I have known Barton Davidson for many years and have nothing but respect for him. He is a stand-up guy who I am proud to know. We differ a bit here and there as we do on this subject. He is not the only person who feels as he does and I respect h...

Actually our friend is a current SHGA member. But that wouldn't really matter.

The fire trashed San Tiago Estates but left our LZ unscathed other than burning the backside of the overshoot hill. We did sustain a bit of wind damage but nothing too major. A tree is down on one of our fences.

Amazon Smile

Do you use Amazon to order products? Did you know that 0.5% of your purchases could go to SHGA and it costs you nothing more? If you order your products through Amazon Smile and designate our club (use full name) as the charity than that is exactly what happens. So far, the few people that have been...
