Welcome to MsBalloonChamps.org

Home of the Mid-Mississippi Balloon Club!

 

Here it is, the middle of winter and the end of deer hunting season in our regular flying area.  Soon (weather permitting) we can start getting airborne again and getting current for the pilots and getting together with crew and friends in the great outdoors.  I for one am looking forward to that.

 

Meanwhile, we are planning our annual Balloon Inspection and Safety Seminar Extravaganza.  As in the past, the seminar will be in Canton, MS in the Trolio Hotel at 147 North Union Street, Canton, MS 39046.  This is in the same building where the Canton Tourism Office is located and is on the West side of the Square.  Here is a list of the topics and speakers scheduled for this seminar as well as other details about cost.  As for the Balloon Inspection part of this event, Joe McKay's house is the host of the Inspections.  Please contact Joe (601-750-9202) about details of when to bring your system out there. 

 

Our next Balloon Club meeting will be on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014 at 6:30pm.  The meeting will be held at The Trace Grill on Hwy 51 in Ridgeland.  Our topic of discussion will be details of the Safety Seminar.

 

If you are interested in joining our club or want to just come visit at one of our meetings, please send a message to the club email so we can add you to our email listing for notices.  We look forward to seeing you all soon at one of our meetings or get-togethers.

If you have a write-up for any of your ballooning events, please submit it to the webmaster so it can be added to our site.
