    Sorry I didn't get to see any of you. My boy and I had a great time and got some really good shots. I will post some as soon as I'm caught up on editing. What a fantastic day it was!

    I was just reading the FAQs on the page for the event and it said that you need to have blankets and chairs in place by 4:30 on Saturday in order to not miss the launch. It might be a good idea to get there early.

    For those who may show up at varying times, I plan to "establish a territory" on a grassy bank that looks out on the grounds. I will pick up a balloon or 2 and tie them to the chair for an easy meeting and stop off point during the evening. If I remember a marker, I'll also write fairhill on the balloons

    Maybe we could meet near the Victory Brewing Tent.

      ps I will have been volunteering at a building project for Good Neighbors all day, no time to shower in \between. So I may be the fool covered in paint or some other such mess.

      No better place to meet than the Beer Tent. See you there.

    Planning on attending this Saturday. This will be my first meetup; very excited. Will we be meeting at a specific loacation? How will I know when I've found the group?

    June 10, 2013

    • gail m.

      It will be my first event with the group too. I have been to this place for various horse events but I am not even sure which parking area we will be directed to (there are 2, about one mile from each other walking, further by road). I could suggest meeting at the riding arena on the top of the hill but that may be where the balloonist will be? My phone number is[masked]-4307. If no comes up w a meeting spot, text me when we get there and I will find you.

    Another photography group will be attending so can we decide on a meeting place? I'd make a suggestion, but this will be my first visit to the balloon festival.
    Thanks!
