28th Feb

Apologies to all those that have been waiting for my update to the balloon blog, to be honest I’m not sure anyone reads it. I did not post last week as we were away attending
the Blackpool Magic Convention and were manning the dealer stand with Thelma Levett.
It was an enjoyable few days away with a few pictures from the event posted onto the balloon chat forum. Pictures.

We have finished the competition that was running weekly to win PDF instructions, a couple of reasons, one was the problem with Thelma’s website, around half the people are unable to log on to view prizes to win and then unfortunately it was the same 4/5 people posting. We were hoping that this would pull in a few more people to view and join in on the forum. Never mind, we did try.

We have the last two day Balloon Artistes Guild lecture workshop for the year 2015/16 with Simon Jong and Rob Driscoll lecturing in Birmingham on 8/9th March. Booking details.

We will be holding the BAG AGM after the lecture on the 8th to discuss club funds and a positive way forward for the Balloon Artistes Guild. I feel we all need to work together to push the club forward rather than smaller clubs and groups starting up.
Perhaps I’m a lone voice in this thought, I do hope not though.

The March model of the month is a nice two balloon shield and a sword,
there is still time to enter February’s competition with the Fox,
this closes on the 7th March. Fox Competition.

The random balloon picture for this week, I wonder what it will be, just off to look.
I made this at the magic convention last weekend, instructions are on my DVD 3
“A Romantic Twist” if anyone would like the details. DVD3.
