Scope and content

The series consists of files for each event: the 1979, 1980, 1981, 1983, 1989 and the 1992 Canadian Nationals; the 1984 North American Championships, the 1986, 1993 and 1998 Alberta Championships; as well as smaller events such as the Sunrise Festival. The 1979, 1980, 1984, 1989 and 1992 files contain photographs of the balloons and their pilots, and there are over-sized posters advertising the 1981, 1984, 1986, 1989, 1990, 1992, 1993, 1998 and 2001 events. There are two files regarding bids for the 1983 and the 1985 World Championships which were not successful and a map used to plot the flights. Files contain correspondence, event reports, and information on the balloons, pilots and their standings in the event. Also included is a map in six pieces showing landing sites from Smoky Heights to Wembley. There are also 16 Hot Air Balloon Championship posters and one felt flag.
