For the benefit of our friends out west who may have missed the Hobby Show ads and promotion on RCcanada.
The Thunder Tiger Canada International Indoor RC Shootout was an indoor competition held as one of the features at the Hobby Show in Toronto, November 4 to 6. The flyers had to perform a 2 minute aerobatic presentation to music. The sponsor... Thunder Tiger Canada put up over $4,000 in prizes and the Hobby Show kicked in $1,000 cash to the winner. We also had excellent prizes donated by FMA Direct and several motors from Icare. (Our winner, Devin was representing FMA)
We had expected at least 40 competitors but ended up with 11 taking part. It seems there was a JR Foamie contest in the States on the same weekend.
The flying was incredible and the visitors to the show loved it.
To Harry Ells, Shootout chairman...Thanks
To Rob Pike and Andre and the members of EMFSO... thanks.
To Greg Covey at FMA ... thanks for bringing Devin and his very proud dad. Devin and Matt are examples of the future of radio control... and they sure made the older flyers sit up and take notice.
To Darren Altbaum of Thunder Tiger Canada... a very special thanks.
By the way guys, Darren is the person to thank for all of this and he can be reached at Darren@hobbycraft.com.
See you next November.
The Hobby Show
