Didn't Raj win a logo 600 @ IRCHA? He really needs to play the lotto

He did but it was due to an auto contest and not a drawing. In other words, Raja worked for it by practicing autos. Nathan Spencer won the 600 and gave the the prize back. The second place winner (Raja) got the Logo.

Great Event!

Bert, Carey, Suzie, James and the rest of the TORCHS members...thank you for the best run event I've been to in a VERY long time.

You did everything in a first class manner, you kept the politics away, the manufacturers/distributors/vendors were treated fairly and evenly.

The event was relaxing and pretty much our entire big helicopter family was there!

Thanks!

Steve

Oh my God! I forgot to thank my friend Marcos, I knew I was forgetting people. Marcos came all the way from Argentina just to support the event and enjoy himself! Thanks Marcos!

Steve, I am very glad to know that you enjoyed yourself, thanks for all your support as well as for your kind words

complaint about James

i was the one that complained about James. i agreed that people can get overwhelmed by the workload in such event. May be he was not intended to do so or may be he was serious. Who knows

However, OHB was an awesome event and i was impressed by the amount of work that you Bert,James,Mike, TORCHS members have to overcome to make this even possible.I met Pinion in person and he even comment my video. THANK YOU ALL.

I was flying today at the TORCHS field and you can still feel the "pulse" of all the Pro's and pilots that O.H.B. was just there!

Should we start a countdown to 2012 Orlando Helicopter Blowout?

I won a Quantum 700 class motor at the OHB. I thought I might be able to use on something but it didn't work out. Big D said on the PA to not sell stuff you can't use so I will offer it up to anyone that attended OHB that might need a motor for a 700 class E heli.
PM me if you are interested.

Thumbs Up!! Hopefully it will go to someone that really can use it! Great to see people giving without wanting.

Next year add a balloon busting contest. Always fun for the spectators, and flyers. Fill balloons with air and helium so they climb very slow, no strings.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Good turnout, hard to get in a lot of flying on Saturday but better on Sunday.

Hey, if there was 1000 spectators how come only $2k raised for charity at $10 a car. Did that many refuse to give the donation or was there average 5 to a car?
