The VWCP is going to the 09 Hot Air Balloon Festival

The VWCP is going to the 09 Hot Air Balloon Festival. The Club will have a bug-run to Clark Field, Angeles, Pampanga on Sunday, February 15, 2009. We invite all our VW friends to join us for a fun-filled day enjoying the sight of those huge balloons and tons of aircraft inspired activities.

For 2009, well over 100,000 spectators are expected to attend five days of fun in the skies To be held at the Clark Civil Aviation Complex, right alongside the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport. It looks as if 25 countries will be joining this event, which seems to be growing by leaps and bounds each year and becoming more like a major air show than a hot air balloon event. This years balloon festival is lining-up to be the greatest ever, and it will be easier to attend then ever before. So, if you have never been to this mega event, or if you wait anxiously each year to see the myriad of balloons and other demonstration aircraft and exhibits, then join us for this fun event for the whole family.

As usual practice, we meet at Burger King Timog and will stop at the last TOTAL gasoline station at EDSA before turning right to NLEX Balintawak. We intend to leave at 5:00 am or even earlier to catch the early lift off schedules of the balloons.

Bring cold weather clothes. . . your jackets, sweaters, caps, etc to keep warm in the early morning and don’t forget to bring your cameras and videocams.

The VWCP Pampanga boys will again be the most generous hosts. If time permits, we can all have lunch at the local BBQ joint as in the recent past.
