Socials; Competitions; etc.
Competition:– launch at daylight Sunday Morning, usual rules, the Balloon which flies furthest and returns to the launch field complete with equipment and crew by 08:30 hrs, (same day), is the winner.
A 'thank you' bottle for farmers, labelled with your details. A label design has been formulated and a limited number will be available at the meet. But bottles won't! – so please bring some!
NB: Landing details will still be required for Admin and H&S reasons.
Please feel free to bring a chair and knock on a caravan/tent where you see or hear a social gathering. If all quiet and still early then many will be inside the pub "Edisford Bridge', located at the entrance to the campsite. The food here is excellent and it gets very busy at peak times, so booking a table is recommended.
Camping is available on site, price as on the entry form. Camping is at the top end of the rally field, NOT the Caravan site.
