Saturday afternoon at the
Logan County Airport there were plenty of activities to participate
in before the launch and balloon glow. As evening approached, the
wind picked up a bit and pilots were told at their meeting that they
could use their own discretion in deciding whether or not to launch.
In the end only seven balloons went up, but at the glow everyone
participated, much to the delight of the huge crowd that had
gathered for the event.
