Currently looking at scheduling the next PAT event for April 28th-30th in Caddo Mills, TX. If anyone is interested in volunteering for a 1.4g or 1.3g display, feel free to hit up PAT or Jeremy Jandreau. Still sorting classes etc., but Black powder, rockets, and fuel mines are definitely on the table. If youre interested in giving a class or want to see something specific, feel free to reach out. More details to come as things get more nailed down. Will also start posting info on talk.fireants.org in the coming weeks. Thank to everyone in advance.

Pressing some stars for a member. Won't be there long that Friday. Dropping off the stars and say hi and have to hit the road. Got a lot going on at my land that weekend. If I get some free time Saturday might make a few strobes and nuclear rockets to send up here at the ranch.

Goodbye PGI 2022. It was an amazing event this year and PAT made the largest splash out here. From Grand Master Chris Roth to 75lb salute outlaw NY Matt. USG doing JPA to PAT and Mum Pyro teaming up for a 100% hand built on site main display Friday night. By the end of the week we not only had the crowd screaming TEXAS!!! Even the announcers were screaming it on the PA System. Thanks for everything PAT members we should all be proud of this, we all had a part even if you couldn’t make the convention. We did you proud.

For those not in the know, PAT members are well known at other events for screaming TEXAS!!! at the top of their lungs. In fact, there are numerous PGI, Sky Wars and other pyro videos you can hear the chant randomly in. So we are commemorating this with the Screaming Marmot Meme on a shirt.

Is the bug eater location within aqua velva stumbling distance from the stands? Asking for a friend.

Can't wait. 🀘🀘🀘

Wish we could, but we had to cancel the trip this year. We won’t be recouped by then from the season and taking time off work. Maybe next year!

Nemo Boss thanks for the post! You Rock! Jeremy Jandreau not sure about the Aqua Velva, but it is were Christopher Harrison saw a ghost last yearπŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Richard Holden Can't believe your skipping out. You should be flush in all that Pyro Money now that you got the first season under your belt. 😝 Never heard how that city shoot went for you? I still want to see pics.

Magnolia FD was onsite and didn’t even get to do anything. Here’s to that trend continuing! Cheers!

Did you expect them to not be responsible?

Hey, some of us should get a round of applause for practicing good judgment and self restraint!! At least that’s what I keep telling myself…

Does triggering PTSD in war veterans count?

This display was not shot by PAT Members, but there were plenty of fires caused by fireworks in Texas this Season, this was a big show that got canceled by grass fires: www.fortworthtexas.gov/news/2022/7/fort-worth-fourth-fireworks-cancellation
