    As a few of us thought we would have a pre xmas mini meet the date is going to be Saturday 9th of December. We have lots of stuff in the containers that will be available to buy at silly silly prices.

    So plan is to go for a Chinese at 7pm and then go home at 10pm. But if you do want to come and have a chatter or buy any fireworks then please come to my house anytime you like. You can buy firework anytime but not between 3pm and 5pm as we are going to have a game of Poker (limited to 10 players)

    I'd love too, but it's a bit expensive for a Chinese.

    I'm coming! Permission granted by the boss ... as I am away in London the Thursday night before for my work's Christmas party, we are going to a Lebanese Belly Dancing restaurant, followed by the Gin club.

    I am just off out to the Chinese but realise I need numbers of who is coming next week ?

    I think the best way to book you a seat is to text me so I know who's coming. If you could tell me before Wednesday that would be great :)

    07 900 300 700

    Plan is also to have a couple of games of poker at 2pm and 4pm (£30 per game buy in) limited to 10 players per game.

    Entirely up to you if you want to go straight to Chinese and meet there at around 7PM ?

    Sorry Nigel, I thought S had texted and she thought I had done it. Pair of bloody idiots!

    What a brilliant day and a super evening to conclude Galactic's social calendar of events and to bring to a close what has been a good year!

    The day went nicely for the poker players (and for those non poker players for those not playing just to have a natter drink and buy some pyro between the sessions), and the firing of Go Go Go by Celtic Fireworks and The Wizard Of Odds by Primed Pyro was a nice surprise to look forward to as well!

    Go Go Go was more pretty than excessive without the bangs with its combination of fanned crackling columns and colourful tips while Wizards Of Odds, although a little on the quick side, was absolutely stunning with its combination of beautiful coloured mines multiple fired and absolutely brilliant gold brocade willows and colourful tendrils topped with wickedly noisy titanium salute centres.

    I got a TNT Pyro Time Display Firework 25 metre Selection Pack (one of them is the old 25 metre Large Comet Bomb with aerial burst effect hence it being given a DISPLAY FIREWORKS category for the whole selection) , a TNT Scorching Sirocco Garden Fireworks 5 metre Selection Pack and a TNT Star Rider Garden Firework 5 metre Rocket Pack from Jinn for Christmas (which will be set off Christmas Day night after late afternoon Christmas dinner) and a surprise present too, (will open that Christmas Day), thank you Jinn, what a good egg you are fella!

    The Chinese meal went down a treat with plenty of great food, good company and banter for all and I lit up the event with three very bright Bright Star hand held indoor sparklers (from a tube of 10 that I didn't know I had until a clearout on Friday) and a brilliant Ultra Indoor Fountain (which is by far one of the best ice fountains I have ever seen : it's heat, it's light, it's duration (went on for a good bit too), it's height and the sheer consistency / quality of it's silver sparks emitted with a brilliant performance element that's all it's own too : even the top of the tube was still red hot afterwards, it was that good).

    Well why not? It's Christmas.

    As I wend my way home, and the promised snow doesn't seem as bad as the forecasters have dramatised that it would do, (for a start there's barely anything fallen from the skies and so looks like it's dumped its load further south leaving South Yorkshire and Northern England largely unscathed), may I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and an equally happy and prosperous new year, with a big hope that 2018 brings you wonderful people and great friends all the pyro, all the fun, and all the things that you rightfully long for and deserve. :) ;)

    ......and may I say it as I always have, "fireworks are not just for Nov 5th, they are for anytime of the year" (responsibly of course!)

    Was a brilliant night, thanks very much Mr T and Pyroprincess x.
    Special thanks to Pete for the lift back to the Ibis, I'm not sure I would have made it 100 yards in that cold, lol.

    Sir Anthony :sparkler:, hope you enjoy the selection boxes mate - don't worry about filming them, just enjoy.
    (I've already set off one of the cute little founts that should be safe at 25mm, never mind metres!)

    Have to say I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday.

    The poker was popular and I ended up £60 up as well so enjoyed that.

    Think the Chinese worked great spreading it out a little with us having our own drinks etc.

    But of course the best bit was us all having a get together :) Thanks everyone who came for coming :)

    Merry Xmas to everyone x x x
