Twas two nights before Reno.... by Karen Mross

Twas two nights before Reno
The car is not packed.
The plane is ready.
So at least there's that.
Not that we do much
We race as is
Thankfully our pilot's
One of the best in the biz.
This annual trek
To our high desert home
A whole 'nuther family
And memories roam.
The sound of the engines.
The crisp morning air.
When even a run up
Can make your day fair.
Old friends and new ones
Await a great week.
To Race at Reno
It's not for the meek.
A Carmelite Covent
Keeps us all in their prayers.
I am so thankful just
To be headed up there.
Here's to a week of glorious racing
And fun for the pilots and crews.
The 51st Air Race is about to begin.
The best of the best at what they do!
