Sue, Bob, Cindy and Butch volunteered to crew for a balloonist. The festival seeks volunteers and you are assigned a balloon. Well they signed up for 5 times. Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings and Saturday and Sunday evening. We could have signed up, but we wanted to be spectators. We got up in the wee hours on Saturday to watch our friends crew. We were on the field at 4:30 a.m. Things were slow starting on Saturday and by the time the balloon was in the air it was about 7:30. The balloonist had no crew of his own so our gang did it all, even took his van to chase.
