There were 63 registered pilots which is great as this event was setup in a relatively short amount of time. The weather was nice with a little wind that increased throughout the day.
As mentioned in the preview post, there were many prizes courtesy of Ready Heli, Helidirect, V-Blades, and Byron Fuels given away during the pilot raffle.
There were many great pilots in attendance such as Bert Kammerer, Bobby Watts, Craig Martin, Mike Fortin, Bobby Smith, and Pete Campbell.
Be sure not to miss the next TORCHS Mini-Blowout if you are in the area. Rumor has it that there will be one more of these Mini Blowout teasers leading up to the 2009 Orlando Heli Blowout. I had a chance to take a few photographs so be sure to check them out.
