To all WOR members
THANK YOU for your donations to the USHPA RRG fund.
As described previously, the future of free flight at the flying sites that we manage is at risk due to the loss of USHPA insurance. Our members have been generous in their donations to allow creation of the USHPA self-insurance pool (Risk Retention Group - RRG). We have met our match goal and, per the resolution that passed at our December meeting, I have sent a check to USHPA for $5000 from our reserve funds in the name of the WOR membership.
However, the RRG has not yet been fully funded and further contributions will be required if we are going to be able to keep our sites open. See the USHPA site here for details and to donate online.
The Wings of Rogallo hang gliding club was founded in the mid-1970's to serve the interests of hang gliding pilots in the San Francisco Bay area. Since that time, the club has grown to be one of the largest in the country, with a typical roster of 500-600 hang gliding and paragliding pilots.
Wings of Rogallo administers 3 local sites in addition to providing soaring forecasts, a monthly newsletter, scheduled observers, monthly meetings, flying safaris, and a number of other services to the pilot community.
