Balloon Challenge needs you: Letter to the Editor

The future of the Canowindra International Balloon Challenge needs you.
The future of the Canowindra International Balloon Challenge needs you.

The Canowindra International Balloon Challenge is an event that we "Canowindra" should be proud of and should support.

The event needs you, Canowindra needs to get behind it to see it continue.

The event's benefits, not just for Canowindra and the surrounding region, include the generation of millions in tourist dollars at the time of the event and throughout the year.

I would like you to step up and offer your support, whether it is in volunteering, ideas, financially or even just positive support for the event.

We need to see all sporting organisations, schools, community groups and individuals to be a part of, not only for the future of the event, but to realise the benefits the town gets from this event and the increased visitation to the region.

The balloonists are fully supportive of the event and are looking forward to coming back to Canowindra in April.

Grab a membership form from Debbie at The Plague and I patchwork shop in Gaskill street and join the committee before the AGM at the Services Club, January 23 at 6pm to have your say on the future of this event.
