Trivia: Meredith has been involved in the ballooning community for over 11 years, flying her balloon, Sunshine, for 9 of those years. She has been lucky enough to have lots of fun flights throughout the years, but the funniest flight Meredith had occurred on her first solo flight, where she was almost arrested by a park ranger for a touch and go in a metro park! Thankfully that did not happen, so Meredith is able to be here with us at this event! Thank you everyone for your support of the balloon community.
