Heart of England Co-op OSCAS Awards 2010


Friday the 8th October was another long day, 8am in the office to load up and finally got home at 3am this morning. The event was at the National Motor Cycle Museum and its the 8th OSCAS  I’ve done and its hosted by the lovely Emma Jesson from Central TV (The Weather Girl). The tables are lavishly decorated with illuminated centrepiece, 40″ gold Megaloon letters make a stunning back drop to the room. There are 15 awards and the final award is the Society Employee of the Years, Once announces its my cue to detonate 24 Airbursts over the entire Imperial Suite, all on one hit, the sound is deafening and the mess is unbelievable. 10 Seconds after these had been detonated all hell let lose as the fire alarms went off  due to the amount of smoke from these effects. The museum had been told about these and the technical crew were on stand by to deactivate but they still went off ( At least they work). All calm was restored with a few seconds

The Megaloon Arch and before you all think I've spelt it wrong it's OSCAS,"Ongoing Service to Customers and Staff", Not OSCARS

Illuminated Table centrepiece. 30 tables in total

The room looked stunning

Well done to Gerry, Mark and all the crew from Istead, the stage set, lighting and music all went to make this event memorable.

See you all for OSCAS 2011

Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.
