    If that’s a back garden display then I am super impressed :)

    Fired a show on the llyn peninsula, beautiful night with no clouds and listening to the waves fall on to the beach before firing was a real calming moment for me after a not to great a year.
     
  8. 7 min wedding show
    Then made it home with 45 mins to spare to deploy my own, grab a shower, neck 6 beers and upset the locals but see the new year in with friends and family.

    Enjoying a glass of Madeira wine & slice of Bolo de Mel - both bought on holiday in Madeira during the year - while watching the London fireworks on TV, at home with Mrs RR.

    2019 was a nothing spent on Pyro, nothing lit - apart from 4 confetti streamer pods of Lemaitre stage effects for a church service - for me.
    I did see plenty of pyro though - in Valencia & Southport and some trade demos.

    The community display I went to over New Year was great, all shop-bought F2/F3, huge bonfire, no incidents, fire engine there on standby and fully marshalled, massive village turnout in the pub/hall with sales of food helping towards costs. Not very many anti-fireworks people in that part of Suffolk!
     
  13. I don't usually fire on NYE but this year I had one of the Klasek cakes leftover. We fired it in a local location. There was quite a bit going off, but probably fair to say it set the standard!

    A few clips taken from someone who filmed most of the show from my position. Was only 6 min 34 second script, but only managed to get about 5 mins of it in sections. Also cursed by the wind blowing the complete opposite direction to normal at this time of year and the VIV48Z-001 cake that was meant to fire as slices to match / acompany the handful of rockets throughout the show (as it did on the 1st 'slice'), s**t itself during the crossette Z cake, leaving the bottom half a bit blank every so often. Gave a nice peacock effect though ;)...


    Also got 3 short snippets from someone who filmed from their window just over 3/4 of a mile away. They loved the show too (as usual)...
