    So our annual fun day is not far away, and as usual I'm sure its going to be fantastic.
    Many of you will know there is limited tickets available and it always tends to sell out so if you are wanting to come along then your able to purchase tickets online now HERE
    We have the usual games going off with some great prizes, the running game on the grass last year was so funny so this has to be one of them.
    You guys now know that the online sale day is the cheapest and easiest way to buy pyro in the U.K. so we try to keep this event more of a fun day, we will, however have a number of items on at silly clearance prices to tempt the pyro tastebuds.
    This year we have caterers coming out to provide a huge Hog Roast cooked right in-front of us with homemade apple sauces and crackling, there will be plenty to go around as we know you are a greedy bunch ;) There will be pasta and salad also available and an Ice Cream van will be attending afterwards to sort us all out with some lovely Mr Whippy.
    We will be firing plenty of new fireworks for this year along with some old favourites, all in all I'm sure anyone who has been before knows how great this event is, it allows us all a big get together where we have a right good laugh, eat some lovely food and watch some wicked pyro.
    As i have said, tickets are now available on a first come first serve basis, many thanks look forward to seeing you all there :)

    I remember the running game last year, I was absolutely spinning round on my feet like a top afterwards, felt as dizzy as a whirling dervish after too many beers........;)

    I wonder how many forum members are coming as booked up to now? Also next Saturday what's the plans for the day?

    I'am coming around 12 to the Ibis and will probably have a quick mccyd at the nearby McDonald's before I set foot in the place, book in and settle down before a quick pre event lager with the members of the forum and meet / greet the other forum arrivals as they come in. :grouphug:

    I'll also be able to video some of the whacky games as well as the fireworks I've got two extra high powered camcorder batteries coming (and which will be with me next week).

    S is bringing me down on the Friday, so I'm hoping there's at least one Oompah Band I can infiltrate at the Ibis this year.

    @Anthony, I was going to suggest you ring me for a lift on the Sat, but google tells me Maltby Train Station shut down in 1929, so you may be better asking someone with some local knowledge? Or any knowledge at all, really.

    You might be on your own Friday, there's very few, if any, turning up......also I get the bus up to near the Ibis Rotherham East hotel from Rotherham anyway.

    It's mostly because I'm not going to bed until around 6.30am nowadays, so setting off at a decent time on Sat would be a struggle.

    Hi there as Harry has said please buy fun day tickets on Tuesday evening latest so we know numbers etc for Wednesday morning.

    If you cannot buy online call the shop on Monday and pay over phone. Sorry I dont want people paying on the day.

    So you need to have got your ticket by Tuesday evening buying online or by calling the shop (If you haven't done this and come on Wednesday or after saying you want a ticket please do not be offended when we say no as you've had plenty of time)

    Sorry for confirming/buying this so late, but I didn't know if I'd be in the UK this weekend or not until a couple of days ago.

    I'll be heading off from Liverpool about 11, so should be at hotel before 1pm.

    I'll be arriving in a slightly loud Z4, if anyone else is there and wants to introduce themselves!

    What a brilliant day and night it has been!!!!!! You did it again, what can I say?

    From start to finish, it has been one outstanding fun day meet, everyone enjoyed the games and the bingo, to have ice cream on tap for the warm weather we had was ABSOLUTELY essential, and hog roast butties were the best by far INDEED.

    Shame we had to put up with pesky wasps and horrible flies dive-bombing and annoying everybody while we were eating and drinking creating a nuisance.

    Must also give a mention to the fantastic Swing Thing Duo who gave us some songtastic numbers and brilliant renditions of Michael Bublé covered songs - good duo of lads and hats off to them both. ;););)

    Couldn't be bettered in any way whatsoever (even if their tablet fell off the speaker and cut the performance part way through!) which was great for a laugh and added a touch of comedy to the proceedings :jump::jump:

    The piece de resistance however, was the fireworks themselves. Some nice pieces were fired and let off, and as for that brilliant jaw dropping finale, it was a VERY spectacular way to bring the house down at the end.

    These fun days make our year and are an essential event, before things turn cooler, days get shorter and attention starts turning towards shorter Autumn days, darker chillier nights followed by Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night October and November time. Long may it continue :sparks::sparks::sparks::sparks::sparks::sparks::sparks::sparks:

    I took a bit of 4K UHD video with my Panasonic 4K camcorder, and it is streets ahead of regular HD quality with clearer sharper images and cleaner looking detail.

    Thanks to Kronys suggestion (thanks for that it was a helpful tip), the sound was far better using an external stereo microphone over the internal one.

    NB I need to edit this down into parts (there is a good bit of footage that I took) so will upload to my Dailymotion account and share it all with you when it's done.

    They just keep getting better!
    Too tired to say anything other than a massive thank you!

    Ta @Anthony for mentioning the singer's tablet hiccup ^, I was at the far end so didn't realize what had happened; I thought they were doing an instant replay using the magic of television, which makes no more sense than thinking they were just singing the same song twice.
