Looks like fun but site doesn't say where its going to be held.  Of course the balloons will be cool but the kite team is the reason to go :P

Yea and the winds were good too :(  Oh well I'm going to talk my other half into going to this event. Looks like a good set up from what they have listed.

I saw some of your team videos Mark and I look forward to seeing it in person.  You guys are good and the only pairs team I have seen do synchonized axels.

Wish we could make it George but it's been a few hectic weeks with Washington for WSIKF then New Mexico for Rhonda's daughters wedding. We'll miss hanging out with everybody for sure. Hope you all have a great time and gentle breezes.

I just wanted to thank everyone for coming out and making this a a successful event. All of you put in a lot of effort and the result showed in the faces in the crowd as well as the funds and  awareness generated for the Children's Hospital. A special thanks to Ozonejim and Tony for helping with the set up.
I didn't have a chance to take many pictures, so I hope one of the others will post what they have.

To Team Too Much Fun... Having you guys out was a pleasure in spite of our audio difficulties. "Things to work on for next year".

Thanks again, Geo.

I caught a bit of it before family stuff on sat and it was a sight to see.  First big scale balloon launch I have seen(always working the last few years this has been done)  Didn't see all of your team performance Mark but what I saw was really good.  I'll be watching your site to see if I can catch any more performances or competitions your team will be at so I can see a full show.

Good work on the event Geo and thanks for posting it.

Geo did a great job organizing and setting up the kite field which is the size of 8 soccer fields. Too much fun was great as usual. Winds on sat were light which was great for balloons but not kites, glad I brought my no/low wind stuff. Sunday had much better winds, good for kites not balloons, yeah! I had a great time and can't wait until next year.

Tony, you did an awesome job filling in between demos. I don't think that vid did you justice.

Bill and Markee's Killer Bees in the background...very nice.

I'll have to find some pics of Jerry and Jane's stuff flying.

Geo.
