Passengers: Ellen Nona Hoyven & Bob Berdan, Olav & Inger Hoyven

Today is a WEDDING DAY for Ellen Nona and Bob. This is the second try as we had to reschedule a couple of weeks ago. I call for our north site again as it worked well yesterday and the winds are about the same. We do have more ground fog but it is thin and when the sun gets up it will go away fast. The gang gets the balloon spread out as the passengers check out there camera gear. We get the balloon up and I call for the passengers to get on board. We are off the field and I was correct the fog is scattered and going away fast. The track carries us over the farm country and the move toward Keizer at an easy pace down low. I go high to check the winds and we jump up to 12 MPH quickly. I drop back down and will do the ceremony in short sections and keep the pace workable. As we get closer to town I start the ceremony over Zielinski’s farm and we get the I do’s done in fine fashion finishing up over Mc Nary golf course. I start looking for a landing spot and have the gang move to some open lots next to Loren’s Sanitation office. I set up for the shot and get pushed off to the west so the gang comes to the rescue when I drop a line and they tow us to the street. We get the balloon down and ready to pack as the street fills with lots of “lookie-loos” . We get the balloon in the bag and head out to Brooks.

A great morning and we got the “kids” married in HIGH style.

A BIG thank you to today’s Crew (I can’t get in the air or back on the ground without’um)
