Thank You RACE FANS!
The Reno Air Racing Association (RARA) is currently offering refunds for tickets purchased for Saturday, Sept. 17 and Sunday, Sept. 18, 2011 due to the cancellation of the remainder of the 48th Annual National Championship Air Races. Since refund information was first posted in mid-October, Air Race customers from around the world have called, mailed and emailed their support that RARA apply their refund amounts towards sustaining the future of the air racing organization and the planning and production of future events. However, for those who are interested in receiving a refund, information can be found online at www.airrace.org. All refund requests must include original tickets and be postmarked by Dec. 1, 2011 to be eligible.
"While there are some ticket holders who have requested refunds for their 2011 tickets, we are amazed and humbled by the overwhelming number of fans who have requested to leave their money with the Reno Air Racing Association," said Mike Houghton, president and CEO of RARA. "We remain committed to preserving this unique aviation event and any funds left with this organization will go directly towards saving the future of the event."
Though it takes place for just one week each September, the National Championship Air Races are a year-round effort that requires significant work hours and financial resources. As a non-profit organization, the Reno Air Racing Association must rely heavily on ticket sales to generate the funding it takes to coordinate each year's Races. As such, all refund requests must be submitted no later than Dec. 1, 2011 in order to allow the Reno Air Racing Association and its board of directors to begin building a financial and logistical plan for future events.
"We've always said this event would not be possible without our fans and that has never been truer than right now," said Houghton. "As we keep the victims of this recent tragedy in our thoughts and prayers, the outpouring of encouragement we've received from many of those affected by this accident, from this community and from people all over the globe has inspired and motivated us to do whatever we can to bring the National Championship Air Races back to northern Nevada as soon as possible."
