Join a balloon club

If you are interested in joining the club, please send an e-mail to e-mail.gif (1787 bytes).

Membership means that you get to help in the ground crew - hold a rope, carry things or drive the car & trailer two or three times - for each time you have the chance to fly. When you fly, you share the cost of the gas.
This is an equal opportunity club. The other pilot in the club (currently a trainee) is a woman.

We have some very pleasant dinner parties in winter, when we can't fly.
