The Los Angeles Palms Chapter of the Ninety Nines has retired the Palms to Pines Air Race, at least for this year. In order for the race to continue from SMO we would need the race to stay intact as Claire Walters created it.
In Claire's honor we are not willing to change the format of the race. We are keeping the option open to perhaps continue the race in the future.
Other chapters are welcome to start up a similar race but may not call it The Palms To Pines Women's Air Race, that right is reserved for The Los Angeles Chapter.
We will miss seeing all who participated for so many years, and hope to see you again. Your participation has always been so appreciated. Perhaps a racers reunion in the future.
The Los Angeles Palms Chapter.
