More to come on this.
But Saturday morning in Hamilton was cold and grey and the balloons could not fly as unpredictable weather was moving in. However in the spirit of entertaining the people who braved the conditions some of the pilots inflated their balloons on the ground. This shot is the crew of the balloon "Sweet Pea" (Pilot Micah Andrews of Te Awamutu, at the back) disassemble the basket and burner while people look on. A really cool group of supporters AND there was a great coffee caravan.
