we received a lot of media interest this year, which makes us a little bit proud and is good to promote our wonderful sport gasballooning and the coupe itself.
we were one of the ‚early birds‘ to get gas. in our eyes a good thing not to have to rigg the balloon in thermal conditions later the day.
the opening ceremony – speeches, introduction of the pilots, drawing of the launch and afterwards a terrific buffet with lokal delicacy at the old chateau de gryères. we will launch from 5th position. 🙂
procession of the teams in the historic centre of gruyères, uphill to the castle – wow!
… meeting with the press and taking pictures with the pilots.
