Hi Pat,

Well, I messed that up. Printed them but at 5:45 AM forgot to pick up 
the stack of fliers off of the printer. Was a good fest. We sold out on 
tables, had a full tailgate areas, and more attendees than last several 
years. (Last year we were snowed out.)

The remains of the balloon, the parachute and the payloads were on 
display. Got quite a few questions.

Anyway, I will be there on the 15th.

73, Tom n4zpt
