Passengers: Crew/training day, Cecil, Tim, Ed, Molly & “theBoss”

We had a last minute cancellation so I call for a “crew” day out of the Brooks site. The gang gets the balloon out and read for the cold air to be pumped in. We get balloon standing and ready to load up then the basket shot and we are off the field heading for the ponds. It’s over the water and a chance for Cecil to get our feet wet but he missed by inches. We hook to the west for a bit and are over the hops for a while then over the dairy. We slip up over Wheatland road and have a big grass seed field to do a swap out and a couple landings too. We hook back to the east and there is a shot at Gubser School but we slip off to the east so it will be Whittaker soccer fields today. We get a tow to the parking lot and use the lot for the lay down and pack up.

I get the story started, the toast is done and the certificates are presented.

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