We ask for your understanding if a flight must be cancelled due to weather. Prevailing weather and winds may postpone or delay ballooning. It's the Festival balloonmeister 's decision to determine if the larger parameters meet FAA requirements for safe balloon flight operations, but it's each Pilot's responsibility to determine whether it is safe to fly their own unique aircraft, equipment, given passengers and crew. The pilot’s decision is final. The pilots and committee will be just as disappointed as you and maybe even more because they know what you are missing!
