I want to thank first and foremost NorthEast Stihl for their participation in helping to get this years event setup, and for bringing their show trailer up to our place. Secondly Mark Chisholm did an UNBELIEVABLE job with helping get the footlock event set-up, running the rules and regs, checking gear, talking to people about climbing, and sending kids up and down up and down up and down! lol mark you did a great job! Brian was awesome as well, thanks man!
