Volunteer Ground Crew
(the "we need your help" page)

Did you ever give any thought to how all those beautiful balloons you see floating around in the sky over Boise each September actually get in to the air?

 

I’ll tell you, balloons fly through the skies of Boise during the Balloon Classic, due in large part to the hard work of special individuals like the one in the picture you see above.

They are the “Volunteer Ground Crew” of Balloon Classic and without these highly trained, excited, happy-go-lucky, time giving individuals, you’d never see a balloon in the sky !

 

We just can’t fly balloons without our volunteers …
and boy, oh boy, if you don’t think we have a job for everyone
you’d be mistaken, because we sure do.

You might get a little tired, but if you can work through it …

You’re certain to have a great time.

So if you want to hang out with Boise’s favorite visitors
here’s how to do it …

If you’ve “Crewed” a hot air balloon before …

Simply fill out the form below and when complete, press the send button to get your information to our Volunteer Coordinator, Cheryl Blauer.

Remember, if you want “Your” special pilot again, be sure and fill out that line of the “Crew” form.

It takes a small army to make sure the Balloon Classic is the great family tradition you see at each morning’s launch and its our volunteers (in every capacity) that make it happen. So, we are always beyond grateful for any help you’d like to offer …

 

Before you fill out the crew form and e-mail it to us, here are some questions and answers that will help you become a little more familiar with the process :

 

Balloon Classic Volunteer / Q & A


Who can “Crew” a balloon ?

Pretty much anyone. We love families. It’s a great way for Mom, Dad and the kids to spend some quality time together. Smaller kids are welcome, but need to be managed by their parents.

Unless they are with one of the several local clubs and organizations that come out and crew, young people below the age of 18, won’t be able to crew without Dad and/or Mom.

What will we be doing ?

You’ll actually help ready the balloon for flight, help inflate it, launch it, chase it while its up in the sky, help it land, pack it up and return it to the launch site.

How do we learn to do that ?

No experience needed … we’ll teach you what you need to know.

Is it hard work ?

It can be, there is some lifting and packing the balloon around, so you should be in good physical condition. It’s an adventure !

If you have a bad back, you should pass on crewing.

What should I bring with me ?

Just yourself. Dressed in long pants (usually Levi’s), a good hiking boot or tennis shoe and leather gloves. You’ll want a jacket in the morning, but that time of year, it usually warms up fast, so dress in layers so you can shed down as the heat comes up.

What other Volunteer Help is Needed ?

We need help with parking cars, security, clean up, putting up and taking down banners, assisting the ‘sound team’ and a host of other things. You’re help is always appreciated.

 

Enjoy Your Balloon Classic Experience !

Please take a moment now to fill out our “Volunteer Crew” registration.
Once completed just press “Submit”.
