You may have noticed the Crown of Maine Website has changed. In an effort to improve the website and its use, we are renovating the website. Please be patient with us as these changes are being made over the next two months.
Mean while the COMBF Organizing Committee is working hard to plan and prepare for the 2015 COMBF. New events and activities are being planned. The committee is preparing to send pilot invitations. We are planning for full day activities on Saturday August 29th.
Stay tuned for the news.
This year’s Crown of Maine Balloon Fest was a success! 6 for 6 Flights – 12 Fantastic Balloons – Excellent Pilots and Hard Working Volunteer Crews. Thanks to our sponsors who made this COMBF possible and Thanks to all the spectators who came out to enjoy the balloons. While we wanted to launch all the balloons from the fairgrounds, Mother Nature will not let us control the winds. The pilots rides those winds in ways to allow the passengers and spectators to safely enjoy what is many a life changing event. The COMBF committee is equally disappointed over the number launches that occurred off-site, however the balloons in the air over central Aroostook County were enjoyed by all.
Planning for the 12th Annual COMBF for 2015 has already begun and it to be another funfilled event for all. Any suggestions or ideas for the 2015 COMBF are welcome. Mark it on your calendar and if you need a COMBF calendar, there are a few left. We look forward to seeing you and your family next August. Consider taking a flight next year.
