Zebedee Logo Zebedee List 

Issue 329
September 2014



The Zebedee List is a comprehensive list of secondhand balloons and other items for sale for balloonists. It is published monthly and can be obtained either in paper format or here on its web site.

Zebedee has had a busy month with our prize Colt 77A G-BUVB finding a new home, as have 2 Westfalias, a complete Cameron 77 bottom end and various tanks. Although other advertisers have only told us about a few sales, we suspect other items have moved too .....

September sees a number of price reductions, particularly in complete kits and envelopes, probably a reflection of how many there are on the market at present - especially in ‘rides’ sizes ....

Added to the List this time are 4 envelopes and a complete Cameron Z-31 from Miro Kolenc in Slovenia, a V-90 envelope from Wales, Kim’s 425 back in, his 250 now split envelope / bottom end and a huge Cameron bottom end from Jerome in France. Also a couple of log book-less 105 envelopes which need work.

Rob McCulloch reports that his V-77, G-LOLL reported as stolen last month has been returned, albeit with some damage - from an auction house in somewhat dubious circumstances .....!

September also sees the Irish National Balloon Championships - 21st to 26th - in beautiful Waterford. There will be a Zebedee presence there at the beginning of the meet so if anyone wants any small items brought over from the Zebedee Emporium, please ask us.

By now some of you may be wondering if there will be an Icicle Balloon Meet in 2015 .... So we can confirm that the event will go ahead over the first weekend of the New Year - 3rd & 4th January with our usual base hotel, the Elcot Park - however there will be a change of flying site so keep your eye on the Icicle website for details .....

Another Round of Scams!

You have been warned...

An increasing number of our advertisers are again being targeted by the "Classified Ad Scam". One individual from overseas - 'she' apparently lives in several countries (!) - has contacted a number of our advertisers with offers to purchase equipment unseen. The fraud is revealed when it becomes apparent that they will send a cheque for more than the agreed price with the instruction to refund the excess by Western Union.

Our advice is to treat with suspicion any interest from a buyer who doesn't even want to look at the item for sale...
