2016 - Spirit Award
Scott Pyle was the man behind the entertainment at Arnolds Park Amusement Park for more than 13 seasons. As General Manager, Scott has been involved in booking acts, securing sound contracts, advertising of bands and shows, and more.
Not only has Scott been the driving force behind the Park’s Saturday entertainment, he has also been an integral part of the Rock the Roof series from the beginning. While Scott has been with Arnolds Park, Rock the Roof has gone from a small Thursday night event to the place to be for live music. Scott’s music knowledge, teamwork and willingness to help IRRMA make a vision come to life are a huge part of the reason Rock the Roof continues to rock today!
Today, Scott continues to work in behind the scenes of many of the events put on throughout the Okoboji area. He is now the general manager for The Inn, one of the most historic vacation venues in the area, and also one known for its live music history. From his participation in Okoboji Tourism, to his support of live music throughout the area, Scott is a champion of preserving the history of great music in the Lakes Area and beyond.
