Default Party Balloons-The Photo Essay

I think it's time there was a thread for just this purpose.Last Saturday,it happened again,like it always does.A swatch of colour,and the gleam of mylar fifty yards away,followed by me sprinting off through the brush[][8D]
A while back I think Dru proposed a scoring system,so here's how it'll work...

**** FULL MYLAR SPECIAL OCCASION.....10 points

*** FANCIER CELLOPHANE GLOSSY(see Bf's first submission).....7 points

** STANDARD BALLOON.......5 points (with at least some air)

* CORPSE ONLY( no ribbon, no air) ...............2 points

***************NO POINTS AWARDED FOR CONDOMS**************************************

Points added for the following properties, as overall bonuses...

***add 1 point with ribbon attached
***add 2 points if fully inflated

***add 10 more points if you get the balloon while it's still flying in the backcountry***
ALL BALLOONS MUST BE CAPTURED TO BE ELIGIBLE AND OF COURSE PIC PROVIDED[:P]
Feel free to post your entries,SCOREBOARD appears in this thread,posted further down


Some submissions-location should be given.......


Garfield Valentine's Day,near Semlin Creek,Seymour River Valley,partly inflated,w/ribbon........12 points


Happy Birthday
Will Koop Trail,Seymour Valley,deflated,w/ribbon.......11 points


Enchanted Forest Trail,Lynn Headwaters
Blue ribbon.....2 points

Oh,and ID 74,if you read this,made ya look
I'll agree with you on having to catch the balloons to be eligible,Dru.
