40th anniversary launch field Marl

40 years Marl

Dear balloonists,

We are glad to invite you for our friendship competition from June,15th to June17th 2007 in Marl.
We will celebrate the 40th anniversary of our launch field there.
In case of bad weather the event will be held one weekend later- from June 22nd to June 24th.
We have space for many balloons, so the number of competitors is not limited.
Our idea is to start in the night to Saturday at 01:00 AM which allows us to be in the air for about 10 hours.

If the weather conditions do not allow a flight on Saturday, we will try it on Sunday.
The entrance fee is € 195, which includes 1 filling with hydrogen, a late-night-(or early-morning-)snack before the flight and the dinner at the price-giving-ceremony.
Lodging is at your disposition.

If you are interested in coming, please let us know as soon as possible. We will then send you our official invitation with more detailed information.

I am looking forward to see you flying in our event and hope we will have a great time together !

Best regards

Mirjam Bölle

Marl - 40 years !!!
