People say the nicest things...
What a wonderful night! Hopefully the dragon, lions and firecrackers will help Christchurch flourish and its people live in peace. Our traditional Chinese performances and fireworks last Saturday night in Re:START was reported on the front page of The PRESS today. The local Chinese Newspaper will report it too. The event is getting rave reviews.
On behalf of the Christchurch Chinese Community and the trustees of Re:START, I want to extend a heart-felt thank you for supporting this event to making it so successful.
Your fireworks [for Chinese New Year] were outstanding
We have receive great feedback on the whole event [Chinese New Year] and the fireworks display featured well in the positive comments.
Thank you for your support of our fireworks event by supplying us with the main ingredients to a fun evening. We are very happy with the product that you send and find you easy to deal with.
Rae S Principal on behalf of the PTA
Just a quick (but sincere) note of thanks for your work on the pyro display for us at last night's awards. You made everything very easy indeed and I really appreciate the time it would have taken liaising with Vbase to allow us to go ahead with it. I know the Duty Manager was very relaxed after talking it through with Tony on site.
The pyro, streamers and confetti added that extra touch of magic to the end of the show and the celebration of the winners - so thank you for your assistance and advice putting it together. Feedback has been very positive about it.
Tony - thanks for sitting through the event, I hope you enjoyed everything pre-pyro.

Brilliant blazing blessing over Port Nelson.

We trust you implicitly to deliver and you have succeeded all
expectations once again.
We salute you and your team!

Thank you to you and your team for putting on what truly was, the best fireworks Samoa has ever seen. People are still talking about it and we are very happy with how the event came out. There are definitely opportunities for us to work together again.
I was pleased with the display and our guests (and the neighbours!) really enjoyed it. The guys did a really great job from setting up to execution and clean up. Thank you.

The event [the Matakana NYE show] was a huge success. Fireworks were great. Thank you so much.
We would like to thank the team for the awesome fireworks display that was put on for us on 5th November 2011. We have had wonderful feedback about the display being the best they have seen for a very long time, a real tribute to Chris's professionalism.

THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS on a fantastic fireworks show last night. We have been travelling to Cromwell from Alexandra every year for the last 7 years and have to say that last night was possibly one of the best nights of fireworks we’ve seen. We really enjoyed the display and thank you for the time and effort you put into this event every year.
Cath, Nev, Amy & Matt (message to the Cromwell Promotion Group)
Thank you for an outstanding fireworks display. It was really fabulous and everyone really enjoyed it. Lots of little kids on their dads shoulders, lots of people crowding at the London/Canterbury intersection.
The LPC team watched from the 5th floor of the port building and said the display was magnificent.

The shows in Queenstown and Wanaka were both fantastic.
I was in Queenstown and it was an excellent display. It was a great variety
of fireworks, with some unique shells being launched, I have been in touch
with Diccon and said thank you very much

Thank you, thank you Findlays and everyone else concerned for a marvellous fireworks display.
We were thrilled and don't recall ever having seen such a good show. Magnificent.

Thank you for such a spectacular show on Saturday night! The guests
were thrilled and this will definitely be a wedding that is remembered
by everyone as "the romantic one with the amazing fireworks".
It was great to be able to hand over such a potentially huge undertaking
to the Fireworks Professionals. You were indeed a very professional,
punctual team and I appreciated your advice and responsive communication
all along the way. Thanks for the great cleanup job too.

I just wanted to say the fireworks show for my husband's 50th was awesome. It remained a great surprize for most of our guests and literally "blew" them away. Thank you for the professionalism with which your company organized this and thanks also to Lance for doing such a good job. We had a special night celebrating 50 years and our 25th wedding anniversary.
Best Regards, Janene
they were amazing - everyone's been raving about them - the guy was fantastic to deal with. thanks a million
We have had a great time with the events. The fireworks have always been the main attraction. Thank you for your assistance over the years and I am sure there will be opportunities for us to work together in the future.

Re the fireworks at my wedding early this month. I was delighted with everything, it was tremendous! John Schwarz did a terrific job; the effects were marvelled at, all over town. ...
Many thanks, V.H. (Wedding)
A BIG thanks to you and your team for a fabulous firework display on Saturday night. I think you had everyone wondering what was happening when the initial fountains were so sedate. They needn't have been concerned as the slow build up was perfect with just the most amazing effects that kept everyone enthralled. The piece de resistance had to be the finish with the Goughs CAT 75 sign which made such a perfect statement and end to our evening. The show was absolutely superb, Anthony and so thanks again to you all
Suz Baker, Director, Eventionz
What an amazing display. We must have got more than our moneys worth, it just seemed to keep going and going! The feedback we've had has been brilliant, it was a real thrill for everyone - the perfect way to cap off what was an incredible day. I'd like to thank you and compliment you on your professionalism and how easy you've made having the display - taking care of all the details, set up, admin etc etc. BRILLIANT.

Thank you so much for getting everything organised for our fireworks display in the Auckland Domain ... Everyone was absolutely blown away. It looked very impressive. The Museum staff have since told us that people in the surrounding area thought the display was in honour of Edmund Hillary.

Jacqueline Rose (Wedding)
Thank you for a wonderful fireworks show in NYE ... the show was excellent. A lot of variation, depth, levels, and a lovely array of ordinance. My guests were (not quite literally...) blown away by the show and loved our proximity to the barge ... very few of us had ever been so close to such a full-on show ... So a big thank you to Anthony and his team
Mark (private show on our barge)
Went really well - effect was fantastic - and Jim was absolute pleasure to deal with - really lovely guy, very patient - wouldn't hesitate in recommending your staff and services to others.
Best wishes, Fleur
WOW!! What a show! It was absolutely fantastic and exceeded all of our expectations. All of our guests had a wonderful time and every single one of them commented on the fireworks and how it helped to make our wedding even more memorable. We have been very impressed with your professionalism and the ease with which everything happened both before and on the day. We would have no hesitation in using your company again. Thank you once again for a wonderful job.
Best wishes, Helen and Alex Moore
"WOW! Everyone that I spoke to was very positive about the fireworks show. You guys did an amazing job and we are very grateful. Some said it was the best show they had seen. I haven't spoken to my managing director about it yet but I was very satisfied with every aspect of show and if we ever have a need for fireworks again we would definitely get you guys to do it for us. I did thank Mick and his team on the night but please convey my complete satisfaction to them. They went about their task in a very professional manner. Thank you for making our 30th anniversary celebration a special event."
