10th Balloon Meeting at Tegernsee

For the ninth time already, we took part in the Balloon Meeting at Tegernsee this year, this time even accompanied by Matthias' mother Bärbel who, actually, doesn't like snow at all - but the supporting programme, such as the "Hüttenzauber" and the toboggan ride down the Wallberg mountain, was great fun to her - and not only to her!

For the balloons, this year was almost as bad as the year before, as weather permitted only one flight for the "big ones". Nevertheless, we had an atmospheric night glow on Friday evening (followed by a funny concert of the Jetzendorfer Hinterhofmusikanten), and on Sunday we were able to entertain the many spectators with our model balloons - their big brothers again had to stay on the ground, as the winds would have pushed them right into the alps.

So, we're hoping for better weather for the next Balloon Meeting at Tegernsee - the hardworking event organisers and their ballooning guests would well deserve it!
