Team Futaba in Miami Fl.

Ivan Kristensen, Don Mclellan, Stephen Hamilton, Don Hamilton, Steve Dionne and Jim Woodward.

The above picture was taken at the IMAC contest in Miami Fl. hosted by the AMPS club. Out of the almost 60 contestants we were 5 "Team Futaba" members present seen here with my QQ YAK-54.

This also was the first time we had a chance to show off our new "Team" shirts which is a great looking shirt and very comfortable one to wear in the hot temperatures of South Florida.

At this event I was joined by another 4 Canadians, we posed for photographs while practising at a superb flying field in Delray Beach Fl.

Rick Kroeze, Denis Plante, Steve Dionne, Don Mclellan and Ivan K. Click on picture for larger image.

I think we did quite well in the competition coming away with 2 second place trophy's, Rick getting a second place in Intermediate and my self a second in unlimited. Don, Steve and Denis placing 4th, 5th and 8th in Unlimited respectively.
