    Was hoping to go to this again this year, but unfortunately it falls the same day as our show for the year. Oh well, maybe another year.

    I know....this is the 3rd straight BPG shoot I've had to miss because of prior commitments . But I've got friends coming in town from multiple states and after last year we are making it a yearly tradition

    Have fun at the shoot Joe, I've talked to a few guys and there is gonna be some awesome stuff going in the air and on the grund

    I hear ya. I hope to have fun, but I know usually I am a stressed mess lol. If you are bored early in the day, stop by and see the setup. Hope the competition turns out to be good for you guys.

    Decision, decisions.

    Joe, based on everything I've heard, I'd be stupid to miss the BPG / Yokum shoot on that day. If I went there, could you put me to work? And is the show for some sort of charity event? I forgot what the premise was...

    Based on everything my kids tell me, I'd be stupid not to let them have a day at Coney before a night of fireworks.

    What's a guy to do?

    Hmmm...maybe hope that the decision will be made for me and I'll indeed be somewhere overseas when this whole mess goes down.

    The problem could be easily fixed next year..... Imagine Sweden vs. Austraila vs. Yokum Firworks

    Jeff - PM sent

    Jimbo - Wouldn't that be something? We are not quite to the level of the big boys of the pyro world, but the thought is something cool to think about.... baby steps lol. Hopefully we get a good video out of this years show and you can still see a little something that way.

    All Portugal..... Killer frickin' show! Voting had France 2nd & Italy 3rd, but I put Italy 2nd. Rozzi finale very, very nice. As soon as I find video I'll post.... My camera is still covered in port-o-let slime from the Lynch demo a few months back.....

    This event is only gaining momentum.....

    How was the event compared to 2012? It was fun watching the fireworks last year, but other than that I found the event to be an absolute mess for a variety of reasons. So much that I didn't even bother heading down this year.
