I know it's early, but anymore takers on pyro talk/demo.

I know a demo on tube rolling will be boring to some, but with a few tricks i use, you can roll pro tubes that don't need cutting.

Yeah, I'm looking to come to the display.

Here is a suggestion- Given the date, maybe we could look to do a daylight display? Smokes effects and suchlike.
OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

Although some daylight items wold be interesting, I don't think we could come up with enough ideas for a complete display - maybe half and half?

Yeah, that sounds good. The issue is just time- it will only be dark after about 10.30pm, giving us half an hour to fire "night" pyro.

Nobody thought it was quite dark last time but the fireworks looked great!

We must respect the 2300 curfew.
