some of you will remember that about a year ago i did a segmented demo at my club. it was my first ever demo and was about 2 1/4 hrs long. well i have just been asked to do another one at a club in the wear valley it is the club that andy hall ( the hat man) runs. so i will have to start and get sorted with all my preparations. i will have to do 3 vases to do this demo as i am going to do a write up to go with the demo and need to do a photo session of all the stages along the way.

Did you enjoy yourself, and was it easier the second time around.

hi Simon and Derek thank you for the comments. Simon i am hoping to get some photos from a friend that was ther so if i get them i will post some on the site. Derek yes i did enjoy my self. i had a little hickup on one part of it, a chucking point come of as the hot glue come away but was able to remount it and carry on any way. it was easyer the second time around and i will be considering doing another one as our club profesional has said he can maybe get me a few in this area that happen on a night after work. dennis
