Well the weather wasn't the greatest, but the Americans For Prosperity Hot Air Tour balloon did make it and gave rides to lots of attendees. Guess the rain is okay, so long as there isn't any wind.
APF President Tim Phillips and Waterville Mayor Derick Merrin both spoke briefly. Tim gave out the phone numbers for Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown (419-259-3875, 202-224-3353 and 614-469-6697) and urged everyone to call him and ask him to promise not impose any taxes in order to address any 'global warming' issue.
I took videos of the speeches and of several home-schooled kids who came out to get a ride in the balloon. I'll download them tonight and post them tomorrow.
There were about 60 people total who showed up and enjoyed coffee, donuts, the commentary and the rides. There were plenty of t-shirts for those who wanted them, as well.
Considering the time of day and the weather, AFP judged this event a success.
