Plan your Memorial Day weekend to include the Mark Hardin Memorial Air Race. For the seventh year Sport League cross country air racing is coming to Terrell Municipal Airport, Terrell, Texas. In 2015 the event was renamed to honor Mark Hardin.
The 2017 Mark Hardin Memorial Air Race will be supporting and benefitting the PRIDE ROCK WILDLIFE REFUGE. The event is produced by Aviamation, Inc. a Texas all volunteer, non profit corporation. PRIDE ROCK is a worthy recipient of our support. This refuge is a gem, a place of tranquility and safety for discarded and mistreated wildlife. The residents are not put on public display or taken for exhibition. They are cared for and given wonderful lives not known to them before. The residents include lions, tigers, bears and cougars. Your participation in the Mark Hardin Memorial Air Race will help insure the continuation of this amazing refuge.
Friday, May 26, 2017 welcomes arrivals for early registration and a social gathering.
Saturday May 27, 2017 is RACE DAY. Registration opens at 9:00am. Late entries will be accepted until 11:00am. Pilots are asked to enter as soon as they are able to facilitate the event planning. Lunch is available from 11 am-2pm. The mandatory pilot’s briefing will be at Noon with the green flag dropping at 1:00pm. There will be snacks and dessert for the racers on their return. Awards follow as soon as possible.
Racing is VFR only. If the event cannot be launched in time for all racers to finish in a reasonable time before sunset the rain date of May 28, 2017 will be implemented.
The 2017 Mark Hardin Memorial Race is not to be missed. The “Memorial” race is in its 7th year and we honor one of our own taken from us much too soon. Sport Racing is supporting a local charity for the first time. A gala event awaits.
