Snowmass Balloon Festival 2009

September 18, 2009

Back in Snowmass Village for the Snowmass Balloon Festival, and staying at the Crewtwood Condominiums again, as are all of the Pilots and most of the Crew.  Friday was the Down Valley Long Distance Race and we came in third.  We flew a grand total of 71'!  Everyone flew further than we did, but they didn't turn in their score sheets and as a result had a no result.  We flew up the valley a little bit and circled the golf course and landed almost at the spot from where we launched!  We seem to either do that or land on the 16th fairway every year.  It's a great event to attend and if you want more information, go to www.snowmassballoon.com and check out what goes on in addition to this event.
