Outdoor Action Show
What an amazingly weekend and a great start to a good summer!
The Cardiff Outdoor Action Show is a perfect dream for any adrenaline junky complete with climbing wall, high ropes assault course, cricket activities, rugby, football, white water rafting, biking, and who could forget…..the Welsh Bockers!!!
Yes that’s right, this weekend we spent an amazing 2 days in the location of Cardiff’s brand new International Sports Village where we managed to perform, attract potential bockers, meet new friends and have loads of fun in the sun!
The day started off with getting up quite early and working our way from all directions of South Wales to the sports village where we began to set up. Early in the day the site was quiet so this left us some spare time to check out the other activities that were available and get friendly with some of the other staff. The first team we met were Inertia Shows an extraordinary team of BMX stunt people who were just as crazy as us….so we got along perfectly.
As the day went on, the workshop got busier and we got tierder (is that a word? it is now!) but this didn’t stop us from helping each other out and improving our team work skills to get through the day. The day was perfect to help us get into the festival mood and get our workshop skills up to excellent standards once again.
Day 2 soon began 16 hours later and we were ready for action. We got very busy, very quickly but were enjoying every second of it. There was plenty of talent showing with some new faces showing off some moves in a successful demo and enough crowd to please the adrenaline thrill that the bockers were enjoying. There was some crazy stuff going on with flips, tricks, vaults and even Jake managing to straddle over Locky on his stilts….it was breath taking.
The workshop on Sunday was even busier than Saturday which give us a chance to please the eagerly waiting long queue of kids and adults including some pensioners who were not too scared to give the craze a try.
We also got to try out an added bonus to our bocking services and give the public a chance to get photographed on the stilts and have a sticker printed out on site; a perfect collection for the family photo album.
In all this weekend turned out to be spectacular, just as we remembered the festival to be in previous years. With plenty of festivals coming up this summer, it’s going to take a lot to beet this weekend and impress us even more……hopefully better than I hope my spelling and punctuation is!
