Issue 332
December 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.

November has proved surprisingly busy on the sales front, with 4 complete balloons, 4 envelopes and no less than 6 bottom ends finding homes, whilst one complete balloon and one envelope have been withdrawn from sale.

Some nice balloons have been added for December, several with under 100 hours. These are amongst a 56 envelope, 3 complete 90s, a complete 77 and 120 plus a 105/120 basket and 3hp hopper fan. Also added this month is a nice, clean Cameron double Shadow burner with liquid pilot lights - see Zebedee’s Burners for details.

Following a minor sort out of Zebedee’s barn, we find that we almost have the country covered for OS maps! A ‘stocking filler’ for your retrieve crew perhaps? See the ‘Other’ section.

Krzysztof Zapart in Poland has announced dates for the 2015 Swidnica Balloon Festival as 6th - 10th May. See balloonfestival-swidnica.pl for details.

But before that, time to get your entries in for Icicle 2015 on 3rd & 4th January. See the website at www.icicle.org.uk for details and entry forms.

Finally we thank our many worldwide readers for their ads, custom and support as we approach our 28th year of unbroken monthly publication of the Zebedee List.

Merry Christmas and a happy and safe 2015 to you all ....

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...

Read here for more details and advice.
