World Hot Air Balloon Championship

 

The World Hot Air Balloon Championship took place in Murska Sobota from 16 to 23 September. The organisers of the event in Murska Sobota were the Roto Balloon Club, the City Municipality of Murska Sobota, the Aeronautical Association of Slovenia and the Murska Sobota Aero Club. The task facing them was no easy one, with Murska Sobota playing host to 145 of the very best hot air balloon pilots from all over the word.

 

The Slovenian Philatelic Association persuaded Pošta Slovenije to commemorate the event by issuing a special stamp featuring hot air balloons in honour of the world championship. The stamp was issued on 11 July 2022. 

 

On behalf of the Roto Balloon Club, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Pošta Slovenije for this wonderful gesture, which has also encouraged us, at the prompting of philatelists in Maribor, to re-establish the (regional) Pomurje Philatelic Club, whose honorary president is Uroš Sobočan. An exhibition of stamps featuring balloons and balloon mail was on view at the Expano Pavilion in Murska Sobota for the duration of the world championship.
