Title: Eric Weinstein 18/19th June
Post by: Graham Lee on January 27, 2019, 12:51:12 PM
We have Eric Weinstein coming over  from the USA to run two workshops in Birmingham
on the 18/19th June, both days are different and Eric is the current twister of the year.
You can either come to individual days or perhaps join the balloon artistes guild and
then all the days are included within the price. Any questions then please ask or to book,

There are only 10 more spaces available so the days could sell out.

We then had a smallest teddy bear competition.
It got very competitive.

Someone even drew a teddy onto a scrap of latex and entered.
Mind you there were some stunning prizes to win,
even a Rob Driscoll 2016 calendar.

The smallest teddy competition was so so funny.
People were getting very competitive and then when Paul was
checking the size of three that were pretty close he popped
one of them. It was so funny but you had to be there.

Then when it came to the actual judging Paul spent what seemed
like hours trying to decide. It was fun and the winner was...……
Dan.

Then it was onto the food related competition,
first up was Caroline and her cucumber...…..
I'm not sure everyone was taking this seriously  ;)
