Our local community here in Nelson recently made an attempt at world record for the largest group spinning Poi.

Mappazzo was proud to be involved in the event, flying Clarka to capture aerial video footage of the group during the preparation and through the tense 2 minutes of the official count.

The organisers at Victory Community Centre aimed to get 250 people spinning their Poi for 2 minutes. At the end of the day we came in 3 people short of the target, with 247 people spinning continuously and 4 people accidentally dropping their Poi during the attempt.... Boooo!!!

Check out the great aerial footage we recorded below. If you want to know more about the event you can read local media stories. (Stuff.co.nz and Nelson Live)

It was wonderful to be involved in such a fun community event. We look forward to another attempt planned for later in the year.... go Victory Community!
