2007 South Plains Balloon Roundup This Weekend

The Southwest Regional Balloon Club announces the 2007 South Plains Balloon Roundup Sponsored by Propane Exceptional Energy in Wolfforth, TX at sunrise on September 8 and 9. 

This free event features an anticipated twenty hot air balloons of many colors and sizes launching with morning sunrise. 

Sponsored by Propane Exceptional Energy, the event balloons are launched from the field immediately east of the Frenship ISD Tiger Stadium complex with parking adjacent to the launch field. 

This year balloons form Texas and New Mexico are featured. 

South Plains and area residents are encouraged to attend and stay for the Wolfforth Harvest Festival immediately following the launch and for the return of the balloonists to the field to answer questions and visit with the pilots and crew.

The event promotes the gentle sport of hot air ballooning and strives to educate and inform people about sport ballooning.  The club will spend entire week prior to the event speaking to groups and schools about ballooning.  Ballooning is a sport which encourages crowd participation and questions.  Often, spectators will help the crew launch and "lay out" the balloons and even help with the inflation.
