There are going to be over 900 pilots attending the event. These post are going to get very long don't you think?

Maybe. But consider the fact that only a small percentage of those attending are active members on this or any other forum. This thread will not get 900 replies.

Also, I don't anticipate there being 900 pilots in 2012. Preregistration numbers seem way down as well. I'd be surprised if there are 850 pilots there this year. Here are attendances from the past five years.

2011-- 912
2010-- 960
2009-- 954
2008-- 780
2007-- 575

What the heck happened in 2007..?
What do you mean? That was a new attendance record, right about the time this hobby started taking off, sparked by affordable electric helicopters like the Blade CP and plastic T-Rex 450's.
575 people was A LOT. When the attendance reached 780 in 2008, people about freaked! At the time, people wondered if 780 was ever going to be surpassed.

In 2007, the first Spektrum DSM2 DX7 radios were still a few months out. Those 575 people all had to fight for the same 50 72mhz frequency pins. That's less than 1 frequency pin for every 10 pilots.

Imagine: you're next in line at the flight station after waiting 2 hours for the pin, fueled up and ready to take off. Someone comes by in a golf cart and says they need to take your pin to do a demo. You lost your chance to fly. It happened.

Could you imagine an event where 950+ pilots have to share 50 frequency pins?

Wow, someone thought they were "better" than someone else and effectively STOLE their pin and chance to fly because they "needed it"?

I can "imagine" a TX (pre 2.4Ghz days) being "accidentally" turned on when that guy is flying. Maybe not during the demo, but later on so it's not as easy to finger "suspect #1"... Wouldn't be surprised at all if something like that happened if/when someone got royally screwed over like because some "demo pilot" thought he was royalty.

I absolutely HATED flying 72Mhz at IRCHA!!!

One time (at band camp...hahaha) some D-bag forgot to return his / my frequency pin and proceeded to go take a siesta for a couple hours and I couldn't fly my heli the entire afternoon! ....NOT HAPPY.

I didn't have any other crystals with me....so sucked for me.

So, yea - I love 2.4Ghz!!
