The countdown to the fiesta has begone. The mass launch is looking unlikely for Friday 9th or Saturday 10th August due to south westerly winds. The back up days of August 16th – 17th are backup days are looking more likely. The venue will be the Green Dragon Pub, Buttington, Welshpool.

Participants should put in their own application to the CAA to launch from this location and at this time. They will have to take responsibility to manage their own safety.  Contact me (chrishillcox1@hotmail.com) for help in securing gas and balloons for the launch.

The pub has 5 pitches for tents or caravans. There is also plenty of accommodation locally in Welshpool. To contact the pub directly you can call 01938 553076. The pub has wifi for tracking and monitoring.
