Once again I wish to ask for your forgiveness.  I do not wish to annoy or pester you about this issue, but I feel it is important.  It has been brought to my attention that some members do not have email that allows for HTML mail.  This means that embedded hyperlinks in words or images will not work.  Many of the reference links that we have provided (that were embedded) in past newsletters were unable to be used.

I wish to give every HAB member the chance to make their voice heard before the FAA potentially causes (What I believe will be) damaging harm to our beloved hobby, sport, lively hood and industry.

Here is a list of reference links for your review.  If you are unable to click on the link you may copy and paste them into a browser for review.

Time is running out.  If you hold a commercial rating for LTA Ballooning this affects YOU.  It will cost you more money to continue to enjoy your sport.  It could potentially cost you hundreds if not thousands a year more.  Please get involved before it is too late.

Thank you for all you do for the Balloon World.
