    Saturday the 3rd of August 2019 we will be having a mini-meet at my house. The day at my house is £20 per person which will include lunch, drinks, Chinese takeaway, and Fireworks included (that's soft and hot drinks if wanting alcohol please bring your own)

    This is to replace the fun day that we have had in the past but rather than completely not have a meet up I thought we would simply have a mini meet.

    From 11 am: Come to my house at any time from 11 am to 10 pm. Teas, coffees soft drinks and biscuits will be available.

    Appx 1pm. At lunch time we will have an assortment of sandwiches and snacks available.

    At 6:30 pm we will now have a takeaway of an Pizzas at my house as the restaurant has closed down :(

    Appx 9:30 pm we will set off just half a dozen or so fireworks. At 10:30 pm its time to go home or go for a drink at the Ibis

    Throughout the day our 4 passenger VW van will be available to take you too or from the Ibis/MyHouse. Sadly not any other place or location. Tel 01709 769184 to be picked up etc.

    Can we bring an item (just one cake per person if they want to) to set off so Nigel you don't need to always put on a display out of your own pocket? Not wanting to extend the evening &/or upset your neighbour's but I thought it would add a bit of variety and we geeks treat the Galactic family.

    Yeah, I had fond memories of my primary school Christmas parties, where you forgot to tell your mum to make anything and ended up taking a packet of choccy biscuits to swap for another random retard's drool and plop contaminated "seasonal goodies".
    I'm kind of amazed we survived at all, all that snotty sugar in one room!

    Just reminded me that I never got round to buying tickets (but had the hotel booked 6 months ago!)

    EDIT: Now I'm trying and after clicking Pay with Paypal, I just go back to an empty basket. Tried twice now, but showing no activity in my Paypal summary.
    So either I'm not coming OR I have to somehow find two friends to tag along.

    Doesn't look like I will be with you much before 16:00... save some good stuff (food and other bits) for me. Lesley is having a Moroccan garden party starting at 13:00 and I need to be around to start the fire pit, then it is a 2.5 hour drive to Maltby.

    This meet yesterday was very good as the smaller number of forum members made it more reasonable with a nice level of visitors and the usual Galactic staff and friends who we all love and have good relations with.

    There were a good few firework bargains to had as some of us snapped up (I have got a TNT Silver Lynx 25 metres BS7114 selection box of display fireworks and the rockets that didn't come home with me from last year's meetup, a pack of 4xFI The Ultimate Collection Professional Quality CE-F3 2.5" and 3" Shellburst 25 metre Rockets) and I'm definitely gonna get some more fireworks online first day of Sale weekend in September for bonfire night.

    The lads tended to play poker with uncle nij, whole the rest of us talked over afternoon refreshments outside.

    It was a glorious warm and sunny day with hazy sun, a veil of high cloud and fair weather puffy cumulus cloud on top mixed with a lovely refreshing breeze and it didn't feel hot in the shade either, it was just right.

    There was plenty to eat and drink and the wasps weren't as much of a nuisance this year as they have been in previous years because uncle nij nobbled a nest under the roof of head office with wasp nest spray foam killer but those that didn't come back to the nest i.e. the odd strays who had been out and about which were mildly upset and slightly angry that they couldn't get back into the (killed) nest, still bothered people a little bit.

    The pizzas between 6.30 and 7 were a nice change and filled a gap (and us) nicely to make up for the Chinese food we never got.

    The fireworks were a little delayed and a bit later than usual but once the last minute arrangements had been finalised started as they should.

    The Evolution Fireworks Jupiter Selection Box was pretty good for a CE-F2 8 metre selection box with nice long lasting fountains, nice red / green star multishot roman candles (of which one didn't fire all its stars after lighting), good double effect starburst shot tubes (each produced a crackle followed by a golden brocade starburst with colour stars), reasonable (for 1.4g class anyway) rockets that were pretty but had no bangs, and rapid fire loudish starburst multishot cakes.

    The other multishot fireworks were extremely good too with lovely loud bangs and very pretty starburst effects.

    The Celtic F4 professional display cake was an absolute barnstormer with it's massive spread and skyfilling power and it provided a good finale to the proceedings!

    At 10.15 many of us started to either wend our way home or for those who'd booked into the ibis hotel (just a small number of us) got a lift back to there.

    I like these summer meets, as it allows those of us who can and want to, to meet up and have a right good chinwag.
