Balloon Competition, New Mexico

Day 490

The balloon competition continued   

Their were two main events, drop a weighted streamer on a target

or drop a ring over a spindle


     Rules are you must take off at least a mile from this target area and you cannot touch the ground.


     Usually the winning balloon is one designed for competition. It is more slender than the average round shaped balloon, has one person in the basket, and is designed lighter.

     The top prize was a pick-up truck

     Goodby, Zebras

  1. I enjoyed reading your post and looking at your pictures. The first balloon pictured, formerly piloted by my father, Ken Kennedy and known by many as Ytivarg. Now it’s loved and appreciated as The Reverse Gravity Machine piloted by Morghan Chando of Albuquerque, NM.
    Thanks again for warming my heart with loving memories.

    Gentle breezes,
