I just received an email from Ned Gorski that his new Fireworking.com website is now up and running.
And indeed I was able to go onto the site just now, and join. $40 buys a one year subscription. And Ned wrote back that I was member number 100.
Ned has been working on this site for many months now. I have absolutely no doubt that within a relatively short time, it will prove to be the most important information and community resource in the world for people who are serious about making fireworks.
Fireworks making, or “fireworking” as Ned’s new is called, has never had a website as well equipped as this one promises to be.
Early on, we had the PML, the Pyrotechnic Mailing List, and it served the fireworking community well during the early years of the internet.
Although other fireworks info sites have sprung up since that time, largely eclipsing the PML, I believe that this new “3rd generation” site of Ned’s will prove to be the richest resource so far for fireworks makers. Here’s why:
Currently there is no fireworks writer in the world that I know of who is doing better
work. That’s because Ned is actually an unusual combination of a very good writer, an excellent teacher who understands his readers, and an award-winning, highly accomplished fireworks maker himself. You simply don’t find all of those skills in very many people.
I’ve known Ned and worked closely with him for a long time. Ned’s projects on how to make fireworks are well known among Skylighter customers, and I personally think his creation of our Turbo Pyro course has resulted in more new fireworks makers becoming successful than anything else written in the past 25 years. I am biased, of course, but that opinion is based upon input from fireworkers who have bought nearly 2,000 Turbo Pyro courses and kits. This would never have happened without Ned Gorski.
I urge anyone who has even a passing interest in fireworks making to subscribe to Ned’s website right now. Ned has
committed himself completely to this new venture. And in my opinion he is giving away his membership, at a measly $40. Per YEAR! Not month!
Give yourself an early Christmas present.
