Following our 2016 enormously successful Sagrantino Cup event we return to extend our invitation for all balloonists near or far to join us here to enjoy a wonderful 10 day “Ballooning Vacation” for all the team and family whilst participating in probably the most “relaxed” event in the international ballooning calendar.
Our event having a superb flying area and flights scheduled every morning over our beautiful Sagrantino wine-valley area combined with a rich social programme has gained the reputation of being one of Europe’s, if not the world’s, most enjoyable event!!
Just a line from the organiser
During the past 29 years annual organisation of our Todi/Sagrantino event we can proudly boast of our 95% flight record of scheduled flights actually being flown whilst continually benefitting from our local favourable weather conditions. Actually, 2016 allowed us to reach 100% with all scheduled flights flown, and so, taking into consideration this very important aspect the necessity of having to travel a long distance to reach us only to find that numerous flights have been cancelled is very remote indeed!! In addition the events included in our social programme (all providing food and wine) are offered free to all balloonists to express our gratitude for having honoured us with their presence help to counteract considerably the teams travelling expenses.
So basically what I would like to say to all is to get your bums and balloons over here and join us this year in as many as possible and that I am well aware that our event enjoys a favourable reputation not only for the ballooning and social aspects but primarily because of the truly great balloonists we have met during all these years and that THIS is the main reason the event is a such a success and for this I warmly thank you all!!
