The High school in Casselman is having a breast Cancer awareness walk tonight, Thursday May 29th, 2014.
Here’s a message from Bill:
"Students are walking all night to raise money
for breast Cancer. I volunteered the NCBC
Mini Basket and my breast Cancer Mini Balloon.
We are meeting for approx 6:00PM with flying
starting (The Mini Balloon) around 7:00 PM.
If anyone wants to join us I will be on my cell
all afternoon. You can see the high school
from the road...
Thanks to anyone who comes out and
WANTS TO GET CURRENT//// LOL

After a year of collaboration between Transport Canada and the Canadian Balloon Association, a Hot Air Balloon Passenger Guide has been produced.
The document is hosted on the Transport Canada website:
Hot Air Balloons – A Passenger’s Guide [pdf]
Montgolfières – Guide du passager [pdf]
This Victoria day long weekend saw the completion of this winter’s 2 project balloons and the first hot inflation for one of the 2 balloons constructed over the winter.
The registration marks for these 2 balloons came in as C-GYTK and C-GYUU, so during construction, C-GYTK became known as Tiki, and C-GYUU became known as YuYu.
So here they are in all their glory.
