Wellington (WPB) Balloon Races

It looks like Saturday would be the day of choice for shooting ops..
04/18/2012 12:33:06 AM · #2
I'll keep an eye on this one! I'd love to get a shot of one of those things!

Waddy, I'd love to!

Except, of course, for the small problem of me flying over your head at something like 500 MPH a dozen or so hours before this starts.

:-|

Next time maybe?

Bump for the morning gang.
There will also be the Lamborghini Polo Classic, and a Lamborghini tailgating party.
All events are free with a donation to the Wounded Warriors Project.

There's a good chance I'll be available that weekend, so consider me a solid maybe :)

Sounds like great fun. Count me in.

That looks like so much fun! Sadly, I'll be out of town that weekend.

I'd love to make this GTG but I'm booked everyday that week with photo shoots. Sunday the 13th is scheduled as an 'add-on' day if needed. So if I get it all done on Saturday I might be able to make it on Sunday, but I won't know until the evening before.

Oh... I thought the same.

Turns out that I'll be flying over your head shortly after this starts, rather than before. :-\

Does this mean we may actually meet?!?! Lol.

I am still trying to figure out if I will be able to go or not. Soon enough I will put my name in for sure whether I will be able to or not.

Not in the least.

One would think they would be a vegetarian's delight considering the number of herbs they contain. :O)

I'm still planning to go on Saturday early morning. Should we plan a meeting place and time. I imagine it will be very hard to find each other.

We just need 21.gif MelonMusketeer to put his monopod up as the location marker :)

I have been asked to play drums at a benefit for one of my friends that has neck cancer Saturday from 11-3, I will try to make it over for the evening "glow" thing Sat. If I can't be there Sat PM, then I will try to make the whole day Sunday, or maybe do both. One of my friends lives at Wellington and has a spare bedroom so I may be able to spend the night there Sat.
Yes, I will be bringing the picture stick/ monopod. I want to get a shot of the burner firing from inside one of the balloons with it.
