This is what we woke to the morning of the race. It blew
through and became the perfect race day!
Deene Ogden, Rookie no more! Deene flys a nice fastback
RV-8 with an IO-390. RV Gold!
A surprise at the race briefing! World War II P-51 pilot
Calvin Sapp of the Tuskegee Airmen was present to answer questions and relate what it was like to fly
the finest aircraft as part of the greatest generation. We of course gave him a standing "O" on his introduction.
Deene Ogden, Race 888, "Kermit"
New to SARL, Stan Musick, Race 89 in his new-to-him SX 300.
No-Name. Stan's email is [email protected] if that tells you anything. He has owned a P-51 and Sea Fury,
and will now be keeping company with Dr. Sutherland, Race 74, out in front.
Dr. Duncan Sutherland, Race 74, will need to get a silk scarf
to avoid chaffing his neck, because he will be looking over his shoulder far more that he has had to in the past three years!
Another new SARL member, but definitely no race rookie,
Ernie Sutter, Race 66, "Jus Passn' Thru" is an experienced Reno closed course race pilot and long time competitor
of Dr. Sutherland. Ernie's Lancair Legacy is "fairly stock" but look for him to challenge Race 74 and
Race 89 once he masters the finer points of cross country air racing.
I just had to post this picture. I had not noticed that
Race 3 Bonanza led the Sport class to the starting line!
