Team Yahooo support video

Andrew and Fiona, from Illabo NSW, put this video together to promote sponsorship for their team Yahooo, with 100% of the funds raise going to the RFDS. Yahooo raised over $20,000 last event and we hope they can do the same again this time! Special thanks to Tony Mitchell (from The Three Amigos) for the soundtrack.
