Las Vegas Search & Rescue holds a fund-raising balloon rally during mid-October at the Southern Hills Hospital. Reach for the Stars was invited this year to perform tether rides for any physically challenged people who wanted to experience lighter-than-air flight. This was a small rally from an even smaller launch site but with great weather and lots of patience all the balloons flew and we tethered for ~2.5 hours each day. We also had time to take in some of the sites of the Vegas Strip.
