    Hi all,
    Thought it was about time I said hello to everyone after lurking in the background for a few months now. Even tho I have direct messaged a few member, all which have been very helpful with replies. This is my first proper forum post.

    I found the site just after BFN last year and was just browsing at first before becoming a member early this year. I’ve discovered brands like Celtic, vivid and many other top brands. Ohh and can’t forget about Prestigious Pyrotechnics . I’ve learned about stake, tape, waterproof and all about setting up for a display style show. I’ve really enjoyed reading all the guides, hundreds of old and new forum posts and checking the site out everyday( yes I’m hooked )

    I’ve found myself a local sponsor, only a hour away from me. Which is Saj at Chorlton fireworks, who is a great bloke, very helpful when I went up to meet him before all this corona started here.

    This year I’m planning on doing a full display for the first time just for friends and family. So as you can imagine it’s a big step for me in pyro this year. Now it’s time to decide whether to hand light it all with a friend, which was the plan. Or invest into a firing system

    Looking forward to reading and hopefully contributing to future forum posts.

    :welcome: & snap, Saj was my first friend made in consumer Pyro sales. Invited to a meet up in Manchester, handed a black bag of freebies, introduced to “George “ and his amazing lamb and met the “rev” and others who I’d class as mates from that point on. From there my pyro life took off, literally :D
    Get ready for the buzz of your life.....

  9. Welcome mate. Saj @Chorlton Fireworks is a real gentleman. First dealt with him last year and have a order with him this year. Also Prestigious Pyrotechnics are (in my opinion) Some of the best fireworks you can buy still got some of the dirty dozen barrage pack and a white spirit put away.
    And if I was you definitely hand light your display with your pal. ;)

    Yeah I do watch your stash videos on YouTube. Good job I’ve got quite a few from his range then. Also tornado and against all odds but that’s under fab fireworks.
