Whats New?

[posted: Sep 19, 2014]

Registration for 2014 Paper Takes Flight is complete. The drawing for participation has been made. Registrants have been notified if they were selected or not.

If you ARE selected - You MUST stop by the Balloon Museum Saturday October 18. We will have training on how to build the tissue paper balloons starting 9:00 am. It will take about an hour so don't be late. Training is optional, but picking up your kit/supplies is not. If for some reason you cannot have someone pick up your kits on October 18, they will be available at the front desk of the Balloon Museum until it closes at 5:00 pm on Sunday October 19th.

If you were NOT selected and someone drops out you will be notified no later than Tuesday October 21 that you can participate.

Thanks to all that registered. Hope you all come back next year.

We will be at the Balloon Museum Saturday October 18th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm for those schools selected to participate to pick up their kits.

If you can't make this time, you MUST pick up your kit at the Museum front desk by 5:00 pm Sunday October 19th.


It is CRITICAL someone from your school pick up your materials during this time. If they are not picked up by this time your spot will be given to the next school on the waiting list.
