I have to put a big thank you out to Chris Hass and Team Futaba for loaning me a throttle servo at the last moment. Also to Dave Lee and Mike Roxberry. It's nice to know people got your back when things go wrong.

Mid-Michigan IMAC Contest

Mid-Michigan IMAC

A very special thanks to Jackson RC Club president Juan Rosa. Without his constant help and support, I could not complete all the tasks required to put on the contest. Also, a special thanks to my bride Pam Roxberry for cooking and preparing our concessions of sloppy joes, Joe dogs and other great foods. Sincere thanks to scorekeepers Tom Walker, Jay Stolz and Buzz Benson, and Wally-Roger Walbrook for bringing his trailer for our use. To all the club members that came out to help including Rich Howerton, Bill Z. , Jerry Scott, Bob Harkness, Vince Bodde, Dave Schupbach and Dave Curtis, thank you so much . Thanks to Jim Norton for posting pictures and scores. I'm sure there are more so even if I missed your name or you came out over the weekend just to enjoy the flying , know that I appreciate your help and support.
