Rich Pond aka “The Land Lord”. Rich and his wife opened their compound for close to 300 people from allover the US for 3 days of bands, mini bikes, swimming and a great Vert Ramp. Many thanks to Rich for his generosity and passion.

My all around over all favorite ripper at PATP Rodney Mead. Rodney never on the bench killed for 48hrs. Sick huge airs and crazy varial,flip invert combinations.

I would be remiss if I did not mention Peter Furnee’s efforts to make PATP a success. From organizing bands and pyrotechnics to rendering care for the injured, the most colorful man on the ramp help pull of another good time.
