Spiediefest 2004- Friday night


Binghamton, New York- Saturday morning


Binghamton, Saturday Night flights and glows....


Spiediefest 2004 Sunday

Sunday morning at Spiediefest. I slept in. Margaret Foster and Harley Brown took the photos.

Margaret and Rupert from Survivor. The balloon team got a private visit from him on this beautiful morning. Later in the afternoon, the Survivor was mobbed by massive adoring crowds at Spiediefest.


Benton and his new hat.

Radowski, aka:  Goofiest, inflates 'Pointless' for another beautiful flight.

Larry the Phoenix (our standard round balloon coated with Koala-Coat #25), Pokey and Pointless.

This is what it is all about.

If anyone knows who is in this balloon, please drop me a line.

Sunday afternoon and the night flight at Spiediefest.

And now, a word from our sponsor...

Thanks again to the Saturn guys. Right on cue with the music as usual!
