Bishops Stortford Balloon Party 6th Jan
« on: December 07, 2014, 12:10:28 AM »
I have booked the very first care and share day for 2015 for Bishops Stortford for Tuesday 6th Jan, the day will sort of be free to attend.
Two reasons,
1, as many of you know I mis-calculated the days for this year and booked 11 so to have a free one will be OK as we still did have 10 for BAG members.
2, the day will cost £25 to attend but you will get a voucher to spend on the day for £25.

This will be the 10th year of the care and share days and a good friend David Grist passed away on the 15th Jan 2005. I'm flying off over to America on the 15th so have to have this the week before. I would like to have a little party with a few balloons and a few workshops and a few competitions, a little like the original days we used to have.

So if anyone would like to volunteer to run a 20/30 minute workshop then please get in touch and I will book you in, it is all very laid back and we are all a very friendly bunch.

The first hour I will run a basic class from 10 till 11pm All are welcome. I will add the booking details to the website tomorrow.

Someone should teach something from David's DVDs as a bit of a thank you for his brilliance :)

Yes I have taught the sheep on a couple of occasions Craig, it would be nice if a few perhaps would buy one of his DVD's as a thank you for his brilliance.
That way people would be supporting David's family as for every single DVD sold I send them £10 and for a full set £67.50.
Would you like to come down and teach something at the day?

Count me in... I haven't been able to come to any balloon meets over the last year. I am happy to teach something from David's DVDs... or come up with something of my own..

So the day will run with a basic class from 10 till 11am. Then we have Darren and myself running a workshop each. There will be two competitions to win some balloon products and also a FREE raffle. I will be donating a set of David Grist DVD's, not sure to raffle as one prize or nine.

Would anyone else like to run a workshop? Would like to have six altogether and possibly a quick 5/10 mins form one or two at the day sharing a variation on a theme or a favourite line work model etc etc. Any other suggestions to make this a fun day are always welcome.

I got the stanstead express today and it stopped at Biships Stortford, they do a return from £16 if you book 30 days in advance.
Not sure if there is 30 days till 6th Jan but it might be worth a look.

We have one more volunteer for a workshop, David Ellis, Macker Balloons. So we are up to four now, would anyone else like to do a small spot?
It could be something that works for you in the real world, a variation on a theme, artwork, photography, marketing, we are very flexible.

Everyone that books in with the £25 voucher will get a free raffle ticket. The day is free to attend but you have to buy a £25 voucher to spend on balloons at the day.
Plus you get the free raffle ticket, there will be 9 DVD's available to win, for every £25 spent you will also receive another free raffle ticket.
Hope that makes sense?

In case anyone is a little short and unable to register for the day with the £25 voucher then PLEASE just turn up and have a nice day twisting.
As it is a free day I would rather people came along and enjoyed the day,
this may get me in a little trouble as some have registered but those that booked do get the free raffle ticket to win up to 9 DVD's so hope everyone will be OK with this?
