Thank you to everyone for an Amazing Rally
The 26th annual balloon rally turned out amazing with some cooperation from the weather we got two days of morning flights and an incredible night glow.
The attendance was phenomenal, I have never seen that many people at Night Glow, and the airport was packed on Saturday and Sunday.
First, I would like to thank all of the business sponsors through whose sponsorship we are able to pay for all of the things needed to put on this rally. Secondly, I would like to thank the pilots. They all travel long distances and spend their time, money and hard work to put on a great show for all of the people that attend the rally. Tim Gale, our balloonmeister this year, did a great job organizing the flights and really bringing in great pilots to Prosser.
Lastly, the volunteers who donate hours and hours to the rally. Whether it is making a phone call to get coffee for pilots, or running down paperwork for the event's insurance, or ordering memorabilia they are critical. We have so many tasks and items it really takes dedicated effort to make this happen.
I would like to specially thank our board members Kendall Murphey, Shirley Delaney, Jacob VanPelt and Nikki Wilson for all of their effort month in and month out to help organize this event. Additionally, our committee members who put in tons of effort during the weekend Danielle Morrow, Chad Yost, Steve Byam, Amanda Everett who were instrumentally to having a great rally. The several of high school students who helped sell memorabila, and the two sororities that helped sell memorabilia downtown all weekend were important in making this possible. Troy Berglund, our announcer, and our DJ, Steve Castilleja, the Port of Benton personnel, and City of Prosser! Thank you to all of the people I missed, but were critical in helping the rally be successful.
Please take the time to email me if you are interested in helping in any way with the rally, we would love to hear from you. My email is at email@example.com.
Thank you all of Prosser for an incredible weekend, let's continue to make this event wonderful into the future!
