I think I agree with Eagle. Seems coincidental that Dockweiler would be the first/only business to experience these new ins. demands.

Were/are there other business/flight parks that are being threatened?

Unless you consider the recent US Hawks event held there.

Hawk roast? Most likely. :roll: :(

This may cause some to say, it's a tongue in cheek post and others to say, this is exactly what is going on.

Dear County of Los Angeles,

It has come to our attention that, while hang glider pilots are charged to use Dockweiler Beach, enthusiasts of other sports are not. We are therefore submitting a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) for concessionaire for the following activities which are presently not covered under the current regulations:


All these activities have produced greater accident numbers than hang gliding at Dockweiler Beach. Therefore, to be equitable and fair, we propose requiring each participant to buy insurance from us to use Dockweiler Beach facilities, using the same model required for hang gliding. Because we are self-insured, it will be necessary for each participant to buy a term of membership in our corporation. We will, of course, ignore California Recreation Law, which holds your County harmless, and maintain the pretext that insurance is necessary for all activities taking place on Los Angeles County premises. The extra money will help us to provide a living wage for the people we hire to regulate these activities. Any who refuse to buy insurance will be turned away or arrested by Los Angeles County police on our complaint. We will, of course, be free to establish our own rates.

Predatory A. Hole

I was just saying to myself "It's too bad The Oz Report isn't more like The US Squawks". What a simple… solution -just copy-n-paste all the poisonous noise no healthy person would seek out there.
