In 1990, our first event was held in Provincetown, Mass., and it included a handful of gay pilots. Communication was by telephone, and members were identified by having an airplane on their shirt. During that time, members risked losing their job or being discharged from the military if they were outed as gay.

This eventually evolved into a national organization, and we're excited to continue to celebrate that legacy at the next Cape Cod Classic.

The 2020 Cape Cod Classic has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please see the note below from President Brian Gambino Regarding the cancellation. 

We look forward to seeing you all at the 2021 Cape Cod Classic which will be held on
September 17th-19th 2021. Save the date!
