Anne Marie and Margaret  are taking on this year's Air Race Classic as Team #24, Team Flying Tigresses .

The Air Race Classic is a cross-country air race, and is the oldest women's air race - this tradition began in 1929.

Team #24 will race in Pilot-in-Command Anne Marie's Grumman Tiger, hence our team name.  Together Anne Marie and Co-Pilot Margaret will use this funding to cover the expenses of fuel and accommodation through the duration of the air race, and the commuting flights  to the race' starting point and from its ending point.  We will strive to keep these expenses minimal, so that we may donate the remaining proceeds to Galactic Unite  which supports women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) with Aerospace as an inspiration for those fields. 

Together, Anne Marie and Margaret stand for pioneering women by taking-on this intense race, in which skill and preparation are tested to the max.  And help them support the education of the next generation - and whatever form of aerospace-racing they might pioneer - through Galactic Unite !  

All donors (who wish to) will have their name and/or logo featured on our website, and on scarves which will be carried with us in our airplane!  All donors will also be named on the final donation to Galactic Unite.

Thank you for your support!

Hello from the Air Race Classic terminus in Fairhope, Alabama! We have been busy with post race events and took a minute for a shout out from the Mobile, AL Boys and Girls Club Graduation for their Girls in Aviation program. Please excuse the bad hair day!

We are en route to the race start and having a ball - through the challenge of navigating a series of complicated weather patterns in the midwest.
We're thinking that the original meaning of the word "Midwest" is actually, "Thunderstorm." =)
Luckily the outlook for tomorrow's weather is much better so we'll continue on to the race starting point in Fredericksburg, VA. Thanks all so very much for getting us on our way!
Setting down to avoid anymore hard IFR

Still not a FB guy so not sure if this will get there or lost in cyberspace. I'm on the boat in Houston surrounded by lightening and associated line of T-Storms - heading your way. So hope you still out enjoying an after banquet party - sharing war stories with other racers. No hurry tomorrow. Party away. Also glad you didn't get wrapped up in blogs, but enjoyed the moment. Congrats again - sound like a great adventure, with a few miles to go.
