2017 Membership Reminder

Postby Benzie » Mon Jan 16, 2017 10:53 am

Dear Pilots,

If you haven't already done so, please join the club and pay your membership dues as soon as possible. This year you can join the club and pay your dues online. It is very easy and takes less than 5 minutes. Please go to http://www.rmhpa.org/join to sign up. With this new system, visiting pilots or pilots who have not yet joined the club can sign up and complete their waivers on their smartphones. This year, we are waiving the $50 dues for student pilots, however everyone still needs to sign up for the club and complete the waiver (waiver for lookout pilots only).

Please remember that RMHPA's agreements with Boulder Open Space, Jeffco Open Space, and the School of Mines require pilots using these sites to be current RMHPA members. Please also remember that memberships are only valid for the calendar year. All 2016 memberships expired on December 31st.

Thank you for your support and for promptly joining or renewing your membership.



Sincerely,

Benzie
RMHPA Vice President


Where does your RMHPA Membership Fee Go?
Your annual membership fee contributes to maintaining RMHPA-managed actions, which can include: securing site insurance for RMHPA’s six sites, maintaining the physical assets of RMHPA’s six sites such as road maintenance, installing and maintaining windsocks, and maintaining launch and landing zones, maintenance of the website and Twitter account, holding monthly member meetings, an annual awards banquet, and general management activities associated with the RMHPA. RMHPA is a non-profit organization and all membership fees are directly used for club activities.

Pilots,

Some have been asking me if they need to be a RMHPA member to fly in Boulder? Here's what I pulled off the RMHPA website, as you will see this goes for all sites that RMHPA insures, if you fly Boulder you are required to be a RMHPA member.

2. RMHPA requires all pilots to join the club before flying at OSMP sites. This is necessary for two reasons. First, OSMP requires RMHPA to insure the sites on their property. This insurance provides different coverage than your USHPA membership insurance. Your membership supports this expense.

Second, USHPA site insurance requirements specify that all pilots that fly an insured site be members of the organization insuring the site.

In addition, your membership is a way for you to ensure you are informed of current site issues, concerns, and events. Membership information can be found at www.rmhpa.org under "Join the RMHPA."

This year, we are waiving the $50 dues for student pilots, however everyone still needs to sign up for the club and complete the waiver (waiver for lookout pilots only).


Sites insured by RMHPA

Lookout Mountain (launch and landing)
Boulder (launch and main LZ)
Copper
Kenosha (LZ)
Villa Grove (Larry Smith property)
Bellyache
Wilcott
