Mark...It was great meeting you this past weekend at the event! A great deal of appreciation goes out to you for your coverage of the event. I was also glad to get on camera documentation of Bo and Curtis discussing the event's history. I was just a Pivot Point back in '99 getting the event restarted as MayDay. This year's success was amazing and I left my old field with a lot of pride of what all the members have contributed over my time there(30years). Especially since just 8 months ago the club was almost wiped off the map by RITA. They really worked hard getting the club back in shape for this event. I know that a pilot record was broken this year...Old record 126pilots(?)...I'm not sure what the ending count was, but WOW! We had people parked all the way down the main road! There are a lot of passed club members that would be very proud to see this kind of turnout.
I always told the club that the Heli Crowd was a Special group and they certainly proved it this weekend!
I greatly appreciate all the pilots, families and spectators that turned out and can guarrantee that it will only get better for everyone in the many years to come in the special way that LARKS has always done.
