10/25/2021 โ€“ On behalf of the MoPyro Board of Directors, we are happy to share with our membership and our fans that MoPyro and Cedar Lake Cellars have settled the lawsuit regarding the Pyromania trademark and several other issues and look forward to the future of our Sky Wars event. As a result of this mutually agreed-upon resolution, MoPyro will retain all legal rights in and to the Sky Wars trademark for our annual display and Cedar Lake Cellars will retain all legal rights in and to the Pyromania and Feel The Boom trademarks for their annual display. A protracted legal battle was not in either partyโ€™s best interest, and we are collectively satisfied with this settlement and feel it is fair and equitable for both parties.

As part of the settlement, both sides have agreed not to disparage each other. Thus, the MoPyro Board is requesting that MoPyro members and fans do not disparage Cedar Lake Cellars, the Pyromania event and any of their affiliates or their efforts going forward. We are aware that this lawsuit has caused some emotional responses from our fans in the past. To ensure that we remain in full compliance with the agreement of the parties, we urge everyone to refrain from making any negative comments on social media or any other platforms about Cedar Lake Cellars or the Pyromania event at Cedar Lake Cellars.
Sincerely,
Your MOpyro Board

My first event and excited to support PAT and hope to meet some of you !

Lets make both leading classes and building at PyroFest easier by putting together some common tools. Can you help us buy anvil cutters, pyro pokes, tape dispensers, ect.? Do you have any contacts to get these in bulk or at a good discount?

Brent Black makes brass pokes in quantity.

Any other common tools we should add??? Many of these tools will also be of help in setting up the displays.

These are the cheapest anvil cutters I have been able to find, 20 pairs would run us $195 including shipping. www.blasterstool.com/blastmastershears.aspx

I would like to help out with safety and fire prevention.

I would love to donate a 10 minute 1.4 show and could also host a class on simplifying 1.4 show construction with cobra slats.

I can donate product and would love to learn more.

I have great video as well but it is proving difficult to get off my camera and uploaded. But I am working on it.

Welcome! Recorded with my phone, still need to check how the gopro footage came out

That may be one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen! I can’t imagine what it must’ve felt or looked like in person.

Comment on Facebook

“And where is that band who so vauntingly swore, That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion A home and a Country should leave us no more? Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

Jajaira Panda Ruthie David Ted Jeremy

Saturday at Pyrofest: there was more shell/rocket/pinata/effect building, 4-Display setups including class built shells led by John(the FireGod), an incredible National Anthem Display honoring First Responders & Veterans on 9/11 by Michael & Matt(with real rocket's red glare), an ear shattering Mascaleta by Nick & co, and a magnificent Final Big Display by Marshall & Andrea. Just before all the displays were launched there was a lil-100 person group feast of smoked pulled pork & sausage courtesy of Nick & Harley(you know you're in Texas when the hardest workers at an event also smoke BBQ for you). More detail, videos, and thanks to follow. ... See MoreSee Less

I had some special made so that I wouldn't get them mixed up with my Welding flip-flops.

Thanks to Harley for Helping me build the Rocket Racks last night. Hopefully this design will stick as the racks are much lighter and stack together when folded up. Best Design yet, stolen from PGI Rocket Racks.

Saturday at PyroFest is full of excitement. The Displays get finished up as we fix all the last minute issues. Most of the classes go out to open shooting and shoot the thing we have been building. We all gather for some BBQ just before dark and talk about what all we have done. Then it gets Dark and we get to see what all the hard work was for, PYRO-MUSICALS!!!

Shell building tonight!

Wayyyy too close to each other! All in a confined space.

Are those the special static-free plastic tables they're using?

Brent Brod will be leading the Black Match Class. This is an essential skill for those learning how to make fireworks, as Black match is key to fuse, quick match, and propagating fire within many effects.
