Kountry Quilters host annual guest night The Kountry Quilters of Nuckolls County held their June meeting at the Church of Christ in Superior on June 12. This was also their annual guest night andthe public was invited. Ten members hosted 14 guests with a show- ing of quilts and refreshments. Dorothy Alexander g ave a brief wel- come speech, then everybody had a chance to examine the quilts. The quilts being shown were the results of five challenges issued by Karen Cliristiancy, president, at the July 2013 meeting. The five challenges were: small project, anything larger than 12 x 12 but smaller than 20 x 48; medium project, larger an 18 inches wide but smaller than 72 inches long; Crayola challenge, make a quilt with predomi- nately three colors drawn from a box of crayons; recycled project, anything made with previously used fabric; mystery quilt, made from clues issued monthly. Guests were invited 'to vote for their favorite quilt in each of the five catego- ties, with winners to receive gift cer- tificates to a local quilt shop. There was also a showing of nine different "Quilts of Valor" made by guild mem- bers for presentation to "wounded warriors" receiving treatment at the V.A. Hospital in Grand Island. Sandy Larkey discussed the Quilts of Valor project, and gave a brief description of each of the nine quilts. Refreshments were served, a veg- etable and dip tray and fmger food desserts made by the members of the guild. The next meeting will be July.l 0 at the Church of Christ. Anyone inter- ested in quilting, or other needlework is invited to attend. Racing Rosies team takes 4th place in Air Race Classic .The Racing Rosies, a women' s team with ties to Nukolls County, took fourth place in Air Race Classic. More than !00 pilots in 52 teams registered for the 2014 Air Race from Concord, Calif., to New Cumberland, Pa. Contestants flew (VFR) in daylight hours, to reach the terminus. Each plane was assigned a handicap speed- and the goal was to have the actual ground speed be as far over the handicap speed as pgssible, The pilots were thus given the leeway to play the elements, hold- ing out for better weather, winds, etc. The objective was to fly the "perfect" cross-country race. In this type of race, the official standings cannot be re- leased until the final entrgnt has crossed the f'mjsh line. Actually, the last arrival can be the winner. The route spans more than 2,338 nautical miles, with 10 scheduled route stops during the race. It was a 4 day race that began on June 16 and ended with a deadline of June 19 at the Capital City Airport in New Cumberland, Pa. This Year's 38th annual Air Race Classic proved to be a challenge for all of the racers. Not just navigating over the Grand Tetons, and the Sierra Nevadas, but contending with difficult weather. Various conditions included rain, sleet, snow and icing in the air and on the ground, severe thunderstorms and microbursts. The twin tornados that hit the town of Pilger were just one day ahead of the check point in Nor- folk. Several veteran racers said this year was the hardest race in the past 10 years. Of the original 52 teams that started the race, only 31 airplanes fin- ished the race! Former Oak resident, Emily (Rty) Applege, and co-pilot, Zia Safko, were Race 3Andais year's air.: race. They were known as The Racing  Rosies. The fii'st di,0T'tli rfiC,the); " had great tailwinds and made it to their fourth check point destination at Scottsbluff where they stayed their first night. They had wanted to fly beyond the first two checkpoints, as winter weather had been forecasted for that region. While flying to Scottsbluff, the Racing Rosies watched as the radar screen gave various levels of intensity of a storm over the airport which began to move out of the way with the Rosies less than 70 miles from their destina- tion, As the Rosies reached the airport, rainbows formed on each side of the timing line, to make a magical en- trance into Nebraska. However, as soon as the timing line was flown, rain poured down for the landing! On Tuesday the 17th they departed Scottsbluff and completed three more legs of the route, spending the night in Danville, I11. Flying into Danville, the Rosies thought they had made a mis- take. They did a flyby (to complete the timing of another leg), but didn't see the timers at the airport! They were nervous (and a bit frantic) as they checked the correct radio frequencies, airport identifier, and runways to make sure they were in fact at the correct airport! After landing and taxiing to park for the night, they could rest as- sured as the timers could be seen in their shady place next to one of the terminal buildings. On June 18, with only two more legs to go, they took a chance on a window of opportunity to beat the weather and an approaching storm, and made it to the fmish line in one day ahead of the deadline. The girls fly with a National Oce- anic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) patch on the back of their flight suits, to "keep the weather be- hind them." This year the placement of those patches paid off! They left the weather behind them in Elko (snow), Pinnedale (ice), the midwest (clouds and storms), and New Cumberland (low level clouds). When the results were announced at the awards banquet on June 21, the Rosies were thrilled to find out they were the fourth place winners in the 2014 Air Race Classic! They also won the Most Congenial Team award for the 'third year in a row and won the fastest time for the ninth leg of the race as members of the Ninety-Nin e' s! The Express has posted two video updates on this newspaper's Facebook page. This year at the races, there was a film crew from Hemlock Films mak- ing a documentary film about the his- tory of the race. The film director, Kara Martinelli rode with the pilots in plane 12 during the race. The documentary film, "Beyond the Powder: The Legacy of the First Women's Cross-Country Air Race" is expected to air on PBS. The Rosies had the honor of having their picture taken with a blood rela- tive of Amelia Earhart at the Capital City Airport in New Cumberland, Pa.
