On Saturday, December 5th at 7pm we'll be having the annual BAPA Winter Holiday party. It is a great way for you to meet up with all your paragliding friends during the non-flying winter.
BAPA will provide a main course while members are asked to contribute side dishes and beverages (beer, wine, soda, etc). So please bring the snack, meal, sweet or fluid that strikes your fancy. Also, please send me an email to tell me you are coming, so we have a rough idea of the number of people attending.
For the second time, we are having the party at Brightworks (Gever Tulley's School) in San Francisco - so it should be reasonably centered in the Bay Area. Additional information on Brightworks, parking, food prep, etc is listed at the end of this email.......
Date: Saturday, December 5th, 2015
Location: Brightworks, 1960 Bryant St., San Francisco, CA 94110
See you all there, and don't forget to email me to tell me you are coming!Dave McMillanBAPA President
The next BAPA Meeting and Social Event will be held on Saturday, October 10th at Mussel Rock at 6:00pm. We will meet in the parking lot at Mussel Rock in the center area. The intent of the meeting is to discuss business that pertains to all of us at the coast (and in the Bay Area) and also to mix and socialize with fellow pilots.
Our upcoming meeting will be very important as we will be discussing changes to the Funston and Stables permits that could potentially affect flying from Mussel Rock. I would like as many members to attend as possible as we will be discussing and voting on some critical issues pertaining to this. USHPA has also been involved with this on the national level, so it is a very big deal. This will be the time to make your opinions known to the community.
We will also be discussing safety at the coast in the wake of two recent fatalities (PG & HG) and one near fatality (blow back into power lines in August). I'll have a more specific agenda in the few days prior to the meeting.
BAPA will be providing food for this Meeting/Social event. Please bring your own beverage (wine, beer, etc) or better yet bring some extra beverages to share.
See you all on Saturday, October 10 at Mussel Rock!
