Back in Easter I was flying the Zolvix balloon (VH-ZOV – aka “Sheep Dip”) over Leeton as part of the Sunrice Festival. Held every two years, the event draws people from far & wide for many attractions to see & experience, not least of which is a bunch of crazy balloonists who show up for a relaxed, fun long weekend of social flying.Yet again I wrote about my experiences at the event for the Australian Ballooning Federation’s “Aeronotes” magazine and it was published in Volume 36, Number 2 (June 2014). I’ve posted a copy of the article (“Sharing the Fun in Leeton“) here on the site along with a few photos Kitt & I took during the event.
The Leeton event is a laid back, relaxed, fun social flying event. I highly recommend going there as it’s a beautiful place to fly with friendly locals and lots of non-flying activities to enjoy.
