Famous Running Track to Become
Arena For Aerial Competitions Next
Season' Prominent Aeronauts In
dorse the Project.
"We intend to move with the times,"
said George A. Farnham at a meeting
recently held in Saratoga, N. Y for
the organization of the Saratoga Aero
plane and Dirigible Balloon Racing as
sociation, in moving the temporary or
ganization of the body. An associa
tion "to promote races and competi
tions In aviation and ballooning was
formed, "and a committee of forty, rep
resenting business and professional
men of Saratoga, with Mr. Farnham as
chairman and C. A. Marshall as secre
tary, was appointed to complete plans,
which contemplate exhibitions in aerial
navigation covering two months of
next summer. "
The place of the exhibition is to be
the Saratoga race track, with the con
sent and promised aid of the officers
of the racing association, the track
to be turned over to the aeroplanists
and balloonists in July and September
and used for horse racing in August.
As outlined in the discussion of plans
by the organizers of the Aerial Racing
club there will be contests of speed
for aeroplanes and long, distance
flights for dirigible balloons.
Cash Prizes Planned.
The feasibility of conducting such an
exhibition has been under considera
tion for some time and in preparation
for the organization of an association
to carry out the plans. Mr. Farnham
and others have been in correspond
ence with noted aeronauts and have
received such assurances of support as
to induce them to go on with their
plan of organization. . They propose to
raise funds by subscription for the
1 prizes, which, it was suggested, should
range from 5,000 down to $2,000.
Mr. Farnham, who is proprietor of
the American Adelphi . hotel, said of
the general plans of the organization:
"The growth of public interest in
aeronautics and the swift development
of the aeroplane convince us that
aeroplane racing and balloon flights
Very speedily will become a popular
form of sport. " We have had much
correspondence with well known aero
nauts and have been persuaded that a
suitable place for aerial trials and ex
hibitions easily , accessible to large
numbers of people , will be needed very
soon. : " . ' "... . '; -
"We believe the race track here will
be the;: best place' available, and for
all Inovelty , of the idea we hink our
plans, are perfectly feasible and will'
meet with popular -success.. The place
we have selected is admirably fitted
to the purpose. About Saratoga we
have a great expanse of open country,
free of tall buildings and trees, already
equippedwith commodious stands for
spectators, and In a Country that pre
sents .few dangers for aerial naviga
tors. There will be no danger of aero
nauts being blown out to sea in a
country so far inland as this.
Noted Aeronauts Expected to Compete.
"We shall delay making conditions
for the trials until matters are more
settled, and when announced the con
ditions will be governed by the state
of - approaching perfection which the
aeroplane has reached. No actual
race, as ontest of speed, between two
or more aeroplanes has eyer been held,
but the prospect for such a race is
good, and we hope to have such a
novelty he"re next summer. We have
already had correspondence with a
number of noted American and foreign
aeronauts and aviators, and we expect
to have some of them among our com
petitors as well, as the foremost ama
teurs and experimenters."
