IMPRESSIONS OF THE SIXT EDITION OF AIRSOFT MEETUP 2017
All the speakers during the 6th Airsoft Meetup in 2017. A very impressive moment was the Award for Mark Rasmussen., you are able to review below. More video's online soon!
If you were not able to make out what Paul has read, here is the full text which he posted on his Facebook Page:
On behalf of my son Mark Rasmussen, who unfortunately is not here anymore, I thank you with all of my heart, for the fine gesture you have shown him here today.
Mark would have been so proud if he had been allowed to experience this moment.
I thank the airsoft community for your support and kind words in connection with the Marks death.
Mark was passionate about what he did and I was there all the way on the sidelines. There was not room for much else. However, Mark had a wonderful girlfriend, Andra, whom he loved more than anything else. Andra was Mark`s cookie and she had a unique patience and understanding for his work.
A special thanks to ASG in Denmark. They believed in Mark and his work. And a big thank you to Paul Wignell from the UK who took Mark around the sites in the UK. Mark really cared for Paul.
The last major cooperation Mark obtained before his death, was with Redwolf. They also deserve a big thank you for believing in his work. Thanks Marck.
Unfortunately, I have to say that Airsoft Denmark as a company is closing, but I will continue to pay for Mark`s site. I think it should be, as a memento of Mark`s outstanding work.
To conclude, I think that I will inform you all about the cause of Mark`s death. He died of a brain inflammation, possibly caused by a virus.
Once again, many thanks for the nice gesture you have shown my son. I am deeply honored.
Dear Mark, Congratulations on the title, I'm so proud of you. See you in Valhalla.
Sincerely Mark's mother,
The audience at the Airsoft Meetup gave a standing ovation honouring Marck for getting an achievement after his death; Lone for believing in her son’s airsoft passion; Paul, ASG and RedWolf Airsoft in supporting Mark and Airsoft Denmark. It was an emotional moment and it was a moment that we will never forget.
And we will never forget Mark Rasmussen.
