 Most pancakes served-world record set by The Lubbock Lions Club
 LUBBOCK, TX, USA-- Members of the Lubbock Lions Club cooked 66,549 pancakes in eight hours (about 7,500 pancakes per hour)-setting the world record for the Most pancakes served in eight hours.

 What started as a "pancake supper," has now grown to a "pancake festival," and a lot more than the name has changed in 57 years. About 17,000 people showed up at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

   The previous world record for the Most pancakes served in eight hours was 34,818 set by the Fargo Kiwanis Club last year. An effort earlier this month by the Fargo Kiwanis to hold onto the title failed. The club ended up serving 32,667.

   Lions Club President Peggy White said, "We've never had people that the lines went down the side of the Civic Center and around by the library. We've never had that before."

   This year, the Lubbock Lions Club trained 60 people to help count the pancakes as they came off the griddle. "I have 15 griddles here. I have to have a counter per griddle. One person per griddle," Dave Freriks, the World Record Coordinator said.

   “We broke their record at 1 o’clock,” said Freriks, adding that Saturday’s effort began at 8 a.m. “We had people coming in at 7:20 (a.m.) who sat there until 8 o’clock to get pancakes,” he said.

   This year’s Kiwanis event was held for the first time in the Fargodome, where electric griddles were used. In past years the event was held at the Fargo Civic Center, where gas grills, which cook pancakes faster, were used.

   The club donates to charities such as Meels on Wheels, the Salvation Army, and the Texas Children's Lions Camp in Kerrville, but at the end of the day, everyone comes for the same reason.

   Former Lions Club President Art Cook said, "One of our members is 97-years-old, and they ask him what he attributes to his long life and he said, ‘eating pancakes'."
