Mass weather balloon launch in August 2013

Balloon News has put an application into the CAA for a mass balloon launch in August 2013. The launch is currently planned for The Green Dragon pub, Buttington, Weshpool, Wales. Weather Balloon Fiesta 2013 is a ‘ not for profit event’ focused on getting balloonists together for a mass launch in a nice place. The event is planned for balloonists with the experience of at least one launch, though people interested in the hobby and event will be welcome to come and watch. I also anticipate it will be only open to helium launches as well for crowd safety. No Hydrogen.

Any comments or suggestions on planning the event are welcome.

The Green Dragon, Buttington
