Cool- I should be there. I have quite a few bits and bobs- a few bigger cakes, and lots of little category 2 bits.
OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

Sounds like this one will be popular!

I think it would be a good idea if people suggest, roughly, how much pyro they are bringing. If we have too much stuff between us, it might be the case that we find we are running short on time, obviously out of respect for sleeping villagers we don't want to be firing right up until 11pm!

I have 2 big cat 3 fountains, 2 big cat 3 cakes, and bits galore!

Probably a few shells again and anything Im working on at the time too.

I will hapilly make a number of ematches and have them available at the shoot for others to use. Ill be bringing my 40 cue remote boxes again so if we arrive early enough to set up prior to starting firing then we could set up everything and fire without too any large gaps.

No problems you can set it up as auto fire (with delay) or sequential (on command) or all fire.

Its up to you.

Well the delay setup is adjustable from 0.01 seconds to 9.99 seconds between consecutive cues so a sweep is easy to do though Ive never see nt "ALL FIRE" buttin used in anger yet lol.

Ill be bringing a load of ready made matches down so we just need a few lengths of bell wire if anyone has any.

What time is everyone wanting to get there? Or more importaintly when does Steve mind us turning up?

Several "all fire" buttons have had the PCB tracks cut to disable them!

See if they have Setanta sports! ;) There is a big boxing match on that night, at 2 am, David Haye v Enzo Maccarrinelli ( know -spelling).
