    OK so this is now what happenig as best as I can describe it.

    You can get to my house anytime on the Saturday from lets say 2pm onwards.
    Cliff Hill Farm, Dunstan Road, Maltby, S66 8BS (top of steep hill behind electric gates) If you are stopping at one of the hotels and intend to be drinking just give me a call on 07966 110969 and I will get Jake to come pick you up as the hotels are only just up the road, plus it stops cars being at my house.

    We will be setting off bits and bobs of fireworks that I have got or been given at around 5:30pm for about 1 hour.

    Then its off to the Chinese, once again dont worry about driving. One way or another we will get you there and back.
    The Chinese is amazingly good and is of highest quality. I have arranged for an assortment of food to be laid on Mixed starters, then Crisy Duck then main course of Prawns Chicken Beef etc plus rice noodles and chips) so there is no messing about picking and choosing your own.
    I do over order so there should be plenty to go round, I have sorted the food bill out but so all you will have to pay for is your own drinks as you have them.

    Then I reckon we stay there till about 10:30 ish. Those going home we will say good night too and those staying we will get back to Hellaby Hotel for maybe a couple more hours of chatting.

    The next day I thought Barbecue lunch but think it would be better for everyone if we made it a barbecue breakfast lunch. I say this as we might as well meet up again at my house anytime after 10:30am but before 12 noon if you want food. Those staying at the hotel can drive down or if you are on the train like Anthony I can get you picked up or come down with someone else. I will do the barbecue for 12 - 12:30 ish so a late breakfast early lunch. You can go home whenever you want but if theres enough of us wanting to play we could have a game of poker at around 4pm ish.

    Now can I add I havent done anything as yet for prizes or comps so I hope I do think of something by Saturday. I'm sure I will.

    See you all Saturday anytime after 2pm.

    I will count atendees before we go to the Chinese so how dangerous will depend on how many turn up as I have only 24 seats booked. :bungee:

    I'm bringing the wife, now shes a right firework!!!
    Only joking bringing 2 x Heavy Duties but will be needing someone to light them as I want to video them on my new camcorder, no idea how to set the thing up but I'll have a go.
    Think I'm going:

    Focus = infinity
    Gain = 24
    Aperture =f5.6
    Leaving exposure and AE shift in auto.

    If anyone has used a video camera in full manual please let me know.

    When I video fireworks I use the camcorders natural ability to get a reasonable low light picture and manualfocus without resorting to any special setting. I find that low light modes increase picture noise and or grain, or they will use very low shutter speeds that produce a horrid slowmotion effect or afterimage strobing/smearing.:bunker:
