CHGPA memberships run from January 1st through December 31st and cost $40 per year. New memberships submitted after October 1 will include the following calendar year, which means October through December are basically free.
Club dues are applied toward CHGPA's annual operating expenses, including: site insurance at High Rock, The Pulpit, Fisher Road, and Bill's Hill; the CHGPA website; training-hill and site maintenance; land-owner gifts; and promotional events such as the annual Smithsonian Kite Festival on the National Mall and Become-A-Pilot-Day at the Udvar-Hazy aviation museum near Dulles airport.
Joining CHGPA with a flying membership grants privileges for The Pulpit, Bill's Hill and Fisher Road. Also, members of CHGPA who have registered to participate in the CHGPA forums have additional forum capabilities, such as uploading photos. So please remember to provide your forum username on the CHGPA Membership Information form (see below).
Through your dues, you support and promote the sports of hang gliding and paragliding at the local level. We hope you agree that it is money very well-spent!
