Fort Funston Air Races and Dan Murphy Memorial BBQ

Mark your calendars!

The Fort Funston Air Races and Dan Murphy Memorial BBQ will be held on Saturday, August 17.

The schedule will somewhat depend on weather conditions, but we will try to start racing around noon and have food available sometime thereafter. The Fellow Feathers will provide most edibles and soft drinks, but pot luck contributions are always appreciated!

Flight overview: Hang gliders may free fly all day at the cliff, but please, during the two hour race window, only air race participants are allowed on course between launch and the Westlake turn point.

Note: We could use a few more volunteers to help with the set up and race timing. If you would like to lend a hand please email Patrick: vice[at]flyfunston(dot)org

The race rules and further info will come soon, please watch this topic for details!

      Hi Cecille - It's true we will have air races but there is always a chance to get a Tandem ride at Funston! It's basically dependent on weather and availability. My recommendation is to come and enjoy the races. There is a VERY good chance for you to get a Tandem ride if the weather is good enough for Air Races.

    I am an attorney in bay area and will be bringing other coworkers to show them the good life of flying instead of court life. Hope to see everyone there . Kam

      Hi Kam - It will be a great time... Maybe you and your coworkers can help with any 'appeals' there might be to the race finals. :) Look forward to seeing you there!
