    UNFORTUNATELY WE'VE HAD TO CANCEL THIS EVENT DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS SITUATION. IF THE SITUATION CHANGES DRAMATICALLY WE'LL LET YOU KNOW. X


    We will be aiming to put on a fireworks competition with a bit of a twist. The twist being the 3 teams that will be doing the displays will be limited to use purely F2 and F3 fireworks that can be bought by anyone from our web site.

    Its been a couple of years since we've done a competition and what I can tell you is that the teams do an amazing job, you won't believe how good the displays are.

    The criteria to have a team is

    A: 3-4 team members

    B: A maximum budget of £1,200

    C: Displays to last between 8 and 10 minutes

    D: All fireworks and rockets to be from Galactic Fireworks

    A couple of changes from previous displays are you can now have rockets, you can use an electric firing system if need be but hand firing does get an extra point when it comes to scoring.

    The date and venue for this event is pretty much certain being at Hooten Lodge Kilnhurst Rd, Hooton Roberts, Thrybergh, Rotherham S65 4TE. On Saturday the 1st August 2020 starting as soon as dark (roughly 9pm)

    Is it cheating to buy one of the kits? And then rework the firing order & fire different combos? As the kits are heavily discounted and get more cakes than buying individually.

    I presume this replaces the annual fun weekend? As I will, (hopefully), be better by this time, can spectators come and watch? I would love to see it from a spectators point of view with the rest of the galactic gang spectators, hopefully with a view to having a go next year...;) Edit - coming down to this event as spectator, just booked Fri 31st July and Sat 1st August at Ibis Rotherham East with breakfast, so see you there!!!! :) Can't miss out on this fun event and it would be great to see you all. If there are any coming down Friday perhaps we could hook up and eat out somewhere? Pub or fish'n'chips or pizza?

    Comps have always been separate to Fun/Sale days in the past but I'll be honest, I don't have a clue - I've been a bit out of touch myself.
    All I know is that it's been a good two and a half weeks since I fired and I'm already getting snakes under my skin.

    Do you not think you'll be up for firing by then, Sir Anthony :sparkler:?
    I guess most teams will go electric but I'm happy to hand fire, if you are?

    No I'm leaving the firing for now, I just want to watch for the moment. ;)

    Just heard from Mandy, thank you for letting me know, the event is CANCELLED due to Covid19 and a lack of guidance for when large social gatherings can happen!

    Anyway, I'm still coming but am treating the weekend as a weekend break which I badly need. Can't cancel my hotel room either because I'll lose my money and I've had no cancellation from the booking site I've booked it thru and no cancellation from the hotel either.

    Hotels and hospitality are supposed to reopen Saturday 4th July subject to Govt decision.

    Anyway event or no event i'am going to treat the weekend as a weekend break so I can rightly enjoy what I've paid for. If any of you are visiting Turver Towers casually Saturday 1st August (bear in mind that there's no event) then please feel free to say 'hello' to me and we'll catch up. I've gotta make something out of the disappointment!

    The govt are decreasing the social distancing to 1m+ soon. If govt add rules for outdoor events to make them happen will this be restarted?

    Looks like it's going to be a mini meet up at the office Sir Anthony :sparkler:, plenty of food but no fireworks :(

    That's ok :) it's a shame no fireworks are allowed but it's better than nothing.
