The Big Top Balloon Crew had a great first filight in the Walla Walla Valley this morning. Our sponsor is the City of College Place. We flew off the football field of Walla Walla High School with a lot of the student looking on. Our passengers were Sue Reay and Jon Rickart from the City.
Jon had a beautiful flight in wonderful weather. Slow winds and not a cloud in the sky! Jon and his passengers landed in a sports complex right across the street from Walla Walla Community College! Green grass and lots of it to lay about. It was great!
More fun tomorrow when we fly from the Fairgrounds!
Sad news! Robin's brother was killed in a motorcycle accident today in Arizona. We will be cutting our trip short and returning to Denver to attend to details of the funeral.
