Fright Flight 2013!

This is the revival of a long-time fall flying, local, (but famous), Halloween celebration flying event (with prizes!).  

It is a 2 day event (flying on Saturday AND Sunday).  Come for both or come for just one or the other. (Flyer is the new MeetUp photo.)

Fall flying is the best!

RSVP.  Ask questions.  Come out and play!

    Hello crew. Back from a 3 day, out of town, high school reunion. Now it's time for FLYING!

    To answer questions: There is no fee, just your labor to get the balloon into and out of the air. Bring as many people as you want....it's a Party! It's cold in the morning and warms up so wear layers. We will be tromping through fields so wear sturdy shoes. Bring work gloves, there are ropes and cables.

    There's a tailgate party at the balloon repair shop in Dixon (will post directions) both days after flying. Listen to pilots debrief. Get to know other crew. Balloonists love a good time. Bring a dish to share if you want.

    Sunrise is later so am changing the start time.
    Looking forward to seeing you all!

    I have always wanted to get involved with Hot Air Ballooning, so I joined this group to do just that. Unfortunately, I've been working in New Mexico this summer, so I haven't been able to participate in any of the Meet-Ups. I hope to make this one.

      Yes. I will be taking advantage of being in NM and check out the Balloon Fiesta. Are you (or anybody else that you know of from the group) planning on going?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
