The pink balloon wasn't in the air Mick - found it on the ground. But I also did find this other one - same week-end trip but this time AT found it going up on the Blinch saddle ...



We also have a ribbon from Blinch #7 - only on the video cam though. Will try to retrieve it

Yes, but does it count for any points Mick? [:I][]

I need to consult with the rules committee,but seeing as I don't have one,what do you think about balloons that are imported rather than found,Dru?
What you did to get it,though,now THAT is worth points somewhere!

I dunno, if you can bring your own balloons rather than find balloons, then you can buy your way up the scoring ladder.

Now if they had let the balloon go flying away in the parking lot at Montana's, and then later managed to find it at Blinch Lake, that'd have to be worth 10000 points

But the balloon landed on my table ( by some mysterious gust of wind called the Hike in Van)! So technically it did come out of nowhere .

But alas, I am one to play by the rules so I will let it be

I want to let the balloon go in the hopes that you would catch it Mick .

Now that would be worth 15000 points!!! (But split between both of us of course [])

Interesting idea,SpunkyOver time,I'm curious as to how many will be found and where.I think the reason the North Shore has so many is that we might get all of Vancouver's balloons due to prevailing winds.Take the Coquihalla area,for example.If you find one there,where did it originate?There's a lot of science involved,I think[8D]

Hey that pic looks familiar! Surely many bonus points would be added if one found a horde of balloons with a backpack attached! (The things people do to make their packs lighter).
