Description

Flying in Winnemucca is as good as it gets int he 'Great Basin' of Northern Nevada. Wide open spaces and few 'red zones' (2 to be exact) and easy to chase and retrieve the balloons.

Such an easy place even Stevie Wonder could fly here. . . .

School presentations on Friday AM, with some balloons flying for 'fun', Glow Show on Friday evening at the sport complex, 'Competition' flying on Saturday and Sunday mornings and 'bragging rights' to the winner of the competition, and of course some sort of 'Bird' trophy, that way you can tell all your friends that "You got the 'Bird' in Winnemucca'.
