    Geez, not a bad idea even if we don't fly! Prolly even more so if not, Air Racing is going to need a LOT of help to continue.. actually, realistically,, even best case for us fans, we have them, attendance will surely be down, race entries may well be down..

    I guess we'll see what happens with today's *ahem* thing, if there's a huge spike from the rally, which it would seem almost a sure thing, pendulum swings as it does, maybe a national mask thing would be mandated.

    Personally, I wear a mask whenever I go inside anywhere, save the hangar and my close friend's homes... that said.. we've been limiting contact to be sure.

    My greatest fear this year for our sport and RARA as a governing entity is that the event is on, expenses expended... not enough people show and drink enough beer and buy enough "stuff" to make it a go into the next year.

    Unless previous administrators have lied to me, whether or not the weather was hot or cold could mean the difference between finishing in the black on any given year.

    I TOTALLY trust the top end at RARA, I know they have the vision to do exactly what's right!

    IF they decide that it's best to put this year on hold... It truly will be up to US to not only keep the current fans interested and engaged, but to do just what we (aafo.com) tried to do from day one..

    GET MORE FANS INTO THE SPORT!

    Man, I don't know if it will be something as simple as taking a nice framed picture of your favorite airplane to your local watering hole and get them to put it on display??

    Crap, I might have just hatched a good idea!

    I wonder if a merchant was presented with a really cool airplane picture ,would they put it on display??

    Naeaaaa.. prolly not



    Anyway.. guys like Jason who produces and shares his amazing works and the rest of you who populate the random shot thread that is amazing! ALL the photo threads...

    Really, no matter RACE ON or RACE off for RENO 2020

    It's going to be tough for our sport and it's going to be up to places like this forum and wherever else the afflicted gather.. We have to spread the disease... the need for speed!

    Wow, I just wish there was a way to generate interested like they did in the early days!

    Also quick thought, when I'm in Portland, I always go to the hardware store that is a Stihl dealer..

    I've always been amazed that I've never seen ANY advertising within those dealerships about the Reno National Championship Air Races (I think search engines like those full terms... anything helps)

    One way or the other, I think we can all help if we just figure an effective way to spread the word further than we've been able to do with the Internet...

    I recently bought a face mask in woodland camo pattern, now when I'm wearing my mask you can't see it.

    Ahh.. aaaH... ahhhh...

    As a very scent aware partial American Indian descent human... it looks to me that the filtration would be excellent!

    I'd use that mask any day of the week!
