The Balloon Federation of America Hot Air Competition Division and the Great Texas Balloon Race in cooperation with LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas have announced the dates for the U.S. National Hot Air Balloon Championships beginning this summer and continuing through 2014. The event site is on the grounds of the East Texas Regional Airport that includes the LeTourneau University Air Traffic Control Training Center. Consequently the school's schedule has to be taken into account in setting dates for the balloon competition.

For this summer (2012) the dates are July 24-29, with a practice flight to be held on July 23rd. In 2013 the dates move to July 22-28 and in 2014 the event will be one week later on the calendar, July 28- August 3rd.

Watch this site for more information as it becomes available.
