Was in a club for a while (might join again, spendy) and was bitten by the bug when I saw other members with their lovely creations that had incredible results. I've always had an interest, but after that I was taken. It's fascinating, being able to create such noise and color from what is mostly just cardboard packaging and industrial byproducts.
Why do you make fireworks?

Making fireworks gives me something creative to do. the payoff is when my friends and neighbors yell and clap when you launch a good shell. or even better when you launch a big shell and everyone goes nuts. that gives me a special feeling..

When folks OOH and AHH over the things I build I love it!

I cannot (or are not allowed) to do the things I truly feel, but pyrotechnics has a lot of avenues to explore.
One day, you can be exploring various glue compositions, and the next, thinking about electronics for your newly devised test stand to measure a rocket motor performance, then wondering if NC lacquer made from ping pong balls is good enough for Dragon's Eggs.. etc... etc...
It doesn't matter, because this forum has many people with lots of knowledge, in many areas - that's what keeps me interested.
I do hope to get over to the US in the next few years and participate in a PGI event. Now, THAT would be a culmination of my, um... excitement?... can't even think of the word right now.

I just start the conversation - someone else has to question them.

stix, you and me both. I live in the us and haven't yet been able to make it to a pgi event. And like you said, just going to one is one thing, but to participate with our own creations is the icing on the cake.
I do pyro for the challenge and knowledge, and the fun / satisfaction of having it all work out.
Finding solace and comfort on my path of pyrotechnic illumination and enlightenment. Painting the sky with strokes of vibrant anticipation and freedom. From spark to spark, the chain reaction of beauty and power that ignite the imaginations and inspirations of young and old alike. -my pyro sparxs-

Funny thing is, although my beautiful wife is supportive, she doesn't give a shit about fireworks. as long as everyone keeps all appendages in tact. And i don't blow up the garage.

I like the smell and the looks. Gives me self-pride when I accomplish a goal. I love the looks on my grandkids when one is a success and they laugh and yell with delight.

It's kind of like fly fishing and fly tying. Caught my first trout on a fly I tied and was greatly satisfied. When I make a piece of firework and it works I feel a sense of pride/accomplishment.
