    Thank you to Brocade Knight (bk) for filming. Early next year there will be a full Brocade Knight (bk) edited production of the event.

    Fantastic! When a display starts like that, you know it's going to be something special :)

    I am really pleased that the start 36 x gold brocade stage mines (6 boards of 6 mines) using 3 x RhinoFire in clock mode worked to create a continuous sweep, as a child won the opportunity to press a wired button from the centre circle and so couldn't use the actual sweep function.

    You say that Jinn Kyja (jk), but it was a year in the planning ... 20 days of wrapping, making the fuse extensions and building boards and on the day getting the van stuck a full field away from the site it was a wing it and pray before the event opened.
    Best learn was taking a gazebo to protect from wind and rain and buy longer ematch than waste a mile of bell wire.
    Still, it is my best work and I have already started on improving the opening sweep, ending with the wall of large mines before the cakes start and not wait until after the shells when the crowd was looking up and missed them!
    Proud most of Lesley, who worked so hard ferrying 20 cakes from the stranded van to me all day, not sure how she lifted them. Also Brocade Knight (bk) can confirm she exists ... and is a lady not a bloke!

    Nigel, I can say with absolute certainty, without your support and stock, I could not have put on this show; thank you.
    Thank you also for raising the bar each year with your shows as I then try to emulate them.
    I just need to learn to break even, God forbid make a profit, but hey I love making so many people happy.
    Love to the whole Galactic family for another fantastic season, the best yet for firework stock, and who said CE and 1.4G will be a bad thing. x x x.
