[[news clipping]] The Amateur Flyer AVIATION COUNTRY CLUBS REVIEW [[line]] Will Join Oceans In Association's 1932 Land Cruising Race [[line]] LAWRENCE TROPHY, WON THIS YEAR BY ALLAN EUSTIS, AGAIN IN COMPETITION. [[line]] Flying from the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to Cleveland, the 1932 Amateur Air Pilots Association Handicap Race will establish the annual landplane cruising race on a national basis comparable to that of the British King's Cup Race. Measured course handicaps and allowances will equalize conditions for contestants in either section of the race. Rendezvous of all planes will be at Akron, Ohio, and the flight to the Races will be made together. A number of this year's contestants have already signified their intention of entering next year's race. The Charles Lanier Lawrence Trophy, a 36-inch bronze figure of Victory, will again be offered in competition and there is some hope that other important trophies will be added.
