ABQ Balloon Fiesta 2021

Thanks for the pics!

Per usual, my ski buddy Bill is at the Fiesta being crew chief for his good friend. They will be doing the balloon glow tonight. It's the yellow balloon on the end. Picture is the balloon glow at Steamboat for Pres. Day weekend in Feb 2020. That's when I and our ski buddy from Ohio got to help out as balloon crew.

Going to the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque is on the bucket list. :smile:

We noticed that one and liked it. Do you know his launch site grid number?
I think it's C9. The owner's name is Gerry Graff. He's been ballooning for a long time as I understand. Really nice family.

For the balloon glow, Bill thinks it's B7.

I absolutely love the ABQ Balloon Fiesta! Everyone should go at least once. Suck it up and be there before dawn for the mass ascension, it is SO worth the lost sleep. Bonus* You get to eat as many hatch green chile breakfast burritos as you want
