Re: Emergency Procedures

These suggested changes will be made on our website and the 2 posted areas within the LZ.

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...
