Kites and Flights: October 26th, 2013

Reserve the date! October 26th, 2013.

Wild Bill Whelan will be hosting our annual pot-luck and flying day/weekend. Bring your Balloons! Bring your Kites! Bring your family! Bring your crew! Bring a dish for the potluck too!

Come fly the Ontario farmland – where there are very few powerlines and at a time of year when the crops will be cut.

The location is close to St-Isidore, in Ontario. 45 minutes from Ottawa, or an hour from Montreal. Get in touch if you need directions.

If Mother Nature cooperates, we’ll fly Hot Air Balloons during the weekend, and if she doesn’t we’ll fly Kites!

This is not an organized festival, although we sometimes get quite a few balloons in the air! Should be fun!


Queen Bee: Completion

I just got back from attending both Festivent in Quebec city and L’international de Montgolfieres in Saint-Jean-sur Richelieu.

Both the Queen Bee and the Bunch of Bees balloons were in attendance.

Here are some pictures of the completed Queen Bee Hot Air Balloon on one of its first flights:

More to come!
