St. Louis - Great Forest Park Balloon Race!
posted September 13, 2015 2:57 PM   RSS

Hey St. Louis MeFites, anyone interested in meeting up at Forest Park this Saturday for the Great Forest Park Balloon Race? (I'd much rather go to the glow Friday evening, but unfortunately I'll be at a wedding in St. Charles).
Saturday lineup is:
Skydivers at 3:00
Opening ceremony at 3:30
Hare Balloon launch at 4:30
Hounds Balloon launch at 4:45
Event ends around 6:30, so there'd be plenty of opportunity for dinner/drinks after if people are interested (I generally am). Suggestions for that are open to the field as far as I'm concerned.

The forecast is set for awesome. We should do this.

I know it's likely to be pretty crowded, but I'm also kind of hoping someone that has been before will chime in and maybe suggest a somewhat easily findable spot that we could meet up at.

Let's do this!

AW MAN, we have a cowboy-themed grownup birthday party Saturday afternoon or we'd be all over this.

Well damn it, now I want to go to a cowboy-themed grownup birthday party. I'm from Oklahoma. I can pull off a passable drawl.

I keep managing to not feel well, be otherwise occupied, forget about meetups lately, but I'd be down for this, or if not this, something sometime.

This may fall flat due to short notice and people already having plans, but my S/O and I are still planning on going, so if anyone (hey Kid Charlemange!) wants to join, feel free to MeMail me and I can shoot you my cell number so we can co-ordinate.

I'm looking forward to it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Otherwise, I'm still up for a meetup soonish. I'm usually available any evening but Wednesdays.
