« on: September 29, 2008, 09:12:37 PM »
Hi all!

this month's topic is inspired by Mandy (thanks Mandy  ;) )
 and is on things to watch out for, avoiding pitfalls and mistakes that could have been avoided with hindsight....

So - putting a positive spin on it

What are your top tips .....?

Always expect the unexpected.
The last two jobs I've done told me exactly what they wanted & when I get there they tell me something completely different.
Carry at least two extra pumps with you in case one breaks & always use the facilities when you can, you never know when there may be more facilities to use :D

My top tip is that I've done a couple of gigs recently where its been dark - outside or dimly lit inside. I put a book light on my busking bag so i could see the different colours.  

There are quite a range of them on the market, LED ones use little battery power and are ..um light.

Thanks for that idea Danny, I have done a couple of marquee jods lately with what they say is romantic lighting. What balloon colours I ended up using I gave no idea, it was like working in the dark. So that is definately a top tip :D
