Wings of Rogallo Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club of Northern California
Annual club meeting

Dear Wings of Rogallo member,

The Wings of Rogallo (WOR) club annual meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 16th at 7:30pm.  The meeting will be held online.  A link to the meeting and the agenda will be posted on the club website before the meeting date.

Officer elections

Officer elections are coming up soon. Most of the current club officers are considering running or seeking appointment for another term, however Pam Kinnaird would like to step down as Vice President, so that she can focus more of her time on her upcoming role as USHPA Regional Director (congrats!)  Please reach out to Pam if you are interested in running for Vice President.

The voting period is November 22 to December 6th, 2021.

If you’re interested in running for a board position (VP or otherwise), submit your nomination using this nomination form. All nominations must be received by 11:59pm on Saturday, November 13th, 2021.

Here are the guidelines for candidates:

  1. Candidates must have a paid 2022 WOR Membership and up-to-date contact information on file in the WOR member database.

  2. Members may only submit nominations for themselves. Please do not submit information on behalf of other members.

  3. Members may only run for one board position in a given election.

  4. Candidates for the Safety Coordinator position must hold at least an H4 and/or P4 rating, and must also be either a USHPA Instructor or USHPA Observer.

  5. The Communications Director position is an appointed, not elected position. Candidates who wish to apply for this position should submit their statements using the Nomination Form, where they will be reviewed by the incoming President and Board, however, this position will not appear on the ballot.

We will be using the ElectionBuddy platform for the election. Be aware that the information you enter into the nomination form will be copied and pasted verbatim into the election ballot: this is your opportunity to communicate with members about your candidacy.


If you wish to update information that you submit in the nomination form, you may do so up until the close of the nomination period.

First Responder Clinic

WOR will be offering a Free Flight First Responder Clinic in early December, that will be taught by local paraglider pilot and WOR member, Dr. Tonia Fox.  The details of the clinic are still being finalized.  Keep an eye out for another email in the coming weeks that has all of the details, including date, location, and cost.   This will be an in-person event. All attendees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend.

Ed Levin 1750 Road Closure

Due to significant erosion, the road to the 1750 (Monument Peak Road) will be closed to vehicle traffic indefinitely.  Status updates can be viewed on Santa Clara Parks' website:

Pilots may still hike up to the 1750 to fly.

Spencer Balona (Ed Levin site chair) is actively engaged with park staff to determine what the next steps are.


Safe flights,

The WOR Executive Board
