Hi Guys,

Dont get on here as much as I would like to, but just wanted to say that I will be attending and really looking forward to it. I have seen the reports from the previous UKRA events and it looks like it promises to be a great day out.

See you there. :D

Tour on site will take place tomorrow at 2pm. everyone who would like the site tour please make your way toward our cars. They are easily identified as they are not in the regular car park but somewhere in the field. We should be in view from the Rockets lunching area.

C U all tommorow

Just a quick thanks to Richard and the rest of the crew for a great day on Saturday. Fully enjoyed seeing the flights and the pyro finale at the end of the day.

Well done and muchly appreciated. :)

Phew! What a great weekend and a great show to boot.

For the first time ever I saw...
  • The setup finished with time to spare
  • The largest flash pots I've EVER seen (adam take a bow)
  • A mascelata style [spelling?] final salute (aka the washing line of doom. - Richards baby)
  • 3 Girandolas taking off at once (!)
BigG doing an impersonation of what a sunflower should look like was just a bonus. :)

For information the show was mostly handfired by Richard, AdamW and BigG, with only a few [6?] electrical cues. Some beautiful cakes - The following all stand out in my mind
  • Z fanned rainbow
  • Fast Z fanned gold tracer brocade,
  • ring cake
  • a nice noisemaker in the form of a 36 x 2.5inch airbomb cake.
Shells were mostly 3's and fours and fives and a couple of eights. [HUGE!] BigG was responsible for the awesome colour combinations. The horsestails [aka waterfall shells] went down particulary well

Adam did a nice piece with fanned mines leading to a couple of big shell breaks.

Audience who have seen a fair few shows in the past went away with dropped jaws. One guy sought us out saying that this was the best yet - high praise indeed.

My personal thanks go to all who turned out and lent support [moral or otherwise]. It's good to put faces to names and shake the hands of fellow pyros [Stillsy and Karl]. Chemicalwazi and Creepin' were invaluable as were all the others who helped out with the setup and teardown.

I've now got to lie down in a darkened room and recover.

Glad you all had a great time! Shame I couldn't make it, my wifes work commitments and my little lad had to come first unfortunatley.

Anyway, glad it all went to plan. Look forward to seeing a few pictures.

Cheers,

Wayne.

Yar! EXCELLENT display, congrats to all the guys involved.

I second that, it is great to match faces to names and shake the hands of the guys who set up such a amazing show. :D
So whats the next rocketry related display?

BTW: I have some pictures of your display, not too good (only 3Mega Pixels) but you can have them if you want. Ill open up my photobucket account.

I knew I'd feel left out when the write ups started coming in... Glad you all had a great time, though. I'll definately try to be there next year. I look forward to seeing the photos!

little tip for the future.. the more you stir him up the better the babbling becomes :P

Top show lads was nice to sit back and watch for a change.. Thanks for adding in a few of my favourites and it appears most other people enjoyed them as well.
