Technically, the U.S. Hawks has been working on this since Aug 31, 2019 12:38 pm (see original post in this topic). At this point, the consensus has been to "organize" it to the same degree as the original meet. :)

Unfortunately - and unlike the original meet - not everyone will be able to participate this year. That's what USHPA and commercialization have brought to the sport of hang gliding.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE "OTTO 50th DAY" AT DOCKWEILER BEACH, CA

Although Joe Greblo no longer owns and operates Windsports Flight School, at Dockweiler Beach, they have asked him to run the bluff operations that day (May 23). The school will not have an instructor available for use by the Otto meet attendees, so Joe says that current and past HG pilots can fly but no instruction is available for beginners. The school will be operating for their own students.

I assume that, as in the past, those without current USHPA insurance, wanting to fly, will need to purchase a temporary 30 day membership which is not very expensive. Those temp memberships are available in the Windsports office. Also the county charges anyone flying a $5 day use fee, also payable in the office.
