ARC 2014!

The Ladies they are Flying again! 

"Women’s air racing started in 1929 with the First Women’s Air Derby. Twenty pilots raced from Santa Monica, CA to Cleveland, OH, site of the National Air Races. Racing continued through the ‘30’s and was renewed again after WWII when the All Women’s Transcontinental Air Race. AWTAR.... better known as the Powder Puff Derby, came into being... read more... click HERE."

38th Annual Air Race Classic
June 16 - 19, 2014

I won't be flying this year, but one day I will! Until then I will continue to be ground support and do what I can to help the magnificent ladies of the ARC to fulfill their mission.

So last year I painted an oil painting for their silent auction. This year I will be sending a photo that I took of Mount Rainier, that is being converted to a canvas. The original Flight To Success photo.

In addition, I am sending a copy of Flight For Control, and Flight For Safety... With a book club offer that I will join whomever gets the books to an evening of fun! 

Oh... and it gets better. I'm a "Take-Off" contributor to their magazine. Check out the sponsor levels and shout about your works in their program. I will have a 1/4 page ad in their program featuring... Yes, none less than these famous novels: 

Now... for that extra nudge, Air Race Classic, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization. If you are interested in being a contributor or getting an ad in their program, click HERE. You can also do a little shopping in the ARC store. So many ways to support.

Do you have something to donate for the silent auction? 
They need silent auction items~ Books. Shirts. Etc.... They would love to see your contribution shipped by June 1, 2014 to: 


Harrisburg International Airport
Marshall B. Stevens, Deputy Ex. Dir.
One Terminal Drive
