Maybe some are all of you may have noticed, this Charleston balloon festival we're going to, is also the site for the Victory Cup polo match... The date and address is the same for each event.

Received an E Mail today concerning a Victory Cup dinner. We will not attend this event. There are a few restaurants we like in the Charleston area and will decide which one we would like to go to Saturday night.

A favorite, Homey Grill, my favorite Shrimp and Grits

If your into the Hot Air Balloons there is a long running Festival in Statesville, NC think it's been going on for 30 some years it's also in October. It's not Charleston, but 50 or so Balloons, of every size and discription. On year they moved to UNION GROVE, NC near where I lived at the time. They launched 4 Balloons from our front yard ! Now that's something ya don't see every day !

For all those that are arriving on Thursday, Oct 11th for the Balloon Festival weekend:
Let's get the weekend started with a BBQ!
We will have a grill set up, so bring your hamburgers and hot dogs, and any side dishes you would like to contribute. See you all next week!

Our arrival date at the CG is Thursday. Guess we might postpone arrival to Friday. Must keep a sharp eye on the Weather Reports and E Mails coming from the sponsors. If winds are still elevated I would guess they will cancel.

We were looking forward to seeing everyone but we have decided to cancel our trip to the Oak Plantation CG. The weather is going to be a mess on Thursday and maybe some of Friday. The latest from the festival is that it's a rain or shine event with no refunds. The balloons will depend on the weather...
