In 1995 The School of Mines, City of Golden, and the Dept of Parks and Recreation granted permission for HG and PG to land in a designated area just East of the water tank in the Minors Field area, in addition to the main LZ. (See Meg’s orientation video for a pictorial view, or contact me on the hill for a view of a map identifying the size and location of the approved LZ and the surveying fields used by School of Mines.
Landing in Minors field area outside of the authorized LZ results in potential conflict with the School of Mines surveying fields, particularly during the three weeks in the Spring (May/June) and one week in the Fall when surveying classes are in session.
If an emergency bailout option near Minors field is required then landing as far South as possible from the surveying fields would not concern the current instructor of the surveying classes. However, it is not a currently approved Landing Zone, as is the main LZ and the designated water tank LZ.
