NTSB Factual Report

The tailwheel airplane sustained substantial damage when it exited the runway and impacted a runway sign. The pilot stated, "Set up for a wheel landing left wing low to compensate for crosswind. Encountered a slight bounce. When wheels touched down again, aircraft swerved left [and] towards edge of [runway]. I did not feel attempting a go-around at that point was prudent due to proximity to wind sock pole. Left runway, rolled through grass [and] onto [runway] 18. I understand a [runway] sign was hit [with horizontal stabilizer]." The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions with the airplane in reference to the accident flight.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot not maintaining directional control of the tailwheel airplane during the landing roll. A factor was the runway sign that was impacted.
