A Must Do

Hello Ken and to all those that have NOT been to this event. In a previous life I was there without knowing a balloon festival was in town, my hotel room was almost twice what normal was. Only to discover all those balloons from around the WORLD were in town. Its a site to behold in person, pictures, tv can not describe or give the feeling of being there. To see 300 plus balloons lift off at the same time float towards the mountains and catch an up draft and return is an amazing site to see. And from I've read here you got the BEST area for viewing this event. Just thinking how awesome its was I gotta go back count me in.

Kip

Ummmm correction - 750 balloons taking off at one time

This is really great - I wasn't sure how it would work with short notice, but we have ourselves a rally !!! So I'll let y'all know the details within the next week ie the money stuff....

mr. ken j,

with a little extra time we could'a had us a airstream convention (over 26 units). on another note, please add to your now bulging and dog eared list, two equines, lightning 'n thunder.

richard & jan, please photoshop my special airstream optional balloon arrivial & departure harness only available on certain '05 FFA CCD's.

Up, up and away ....

Hi Ken:

Sign me up too, it sounds like a great event and a superb location from which to watch everyone get high. And with all that hot air, I'll fit right in. I look forward to meeting other FCU members there.

ms. scrape,

mr. ken j, is a cpa, i know, i know, a horrid afflection, but i think w/ a little "Performance Retail Therapy" (it's new i just invented it three weeks ago), we can pull him outa his personality funk. send your check directly to me...

no wait...

we better wait for mr. ken j, to (rustling papers furiously all about) to tell us what to do... money wise, where and when, let's not get into why...

mr. 2air,

i've been following your career for some time now. my personality has bonded w/ yours, just at great distance. channeling now...

anyways, this is a "FIESTA", not a "party".

kinda like the difference between a Airstream "rally" vs. a Airstream "convention". think scale, magnitude, or even multi magitudes of mind blowing proportions.

but i knew you knew that...
