Purpose of the Guild
1. Promote the safe and sane display and use of pyrotechnics.
2. Encourage the display of public and private pyrotechnics in conjunction with local and national holidays and patriotic events.
3. Channel the creative energies of talented people into the design, production, and display of high quality pyrotechnics by example of the membership through the sharing of knowledge.
It's quite possible that the BPG is one of the, if not "THE" most active Pyrotechnics club in the country. There are usually 10-12 meets per year and 8-10 shoots. Current members of BPG bring a wide diversity of backgrounds, knowledge and interests. Many different secular careers are represented . . . From a university professor, to a retired rocket scientist, to bankers, builders, entrepreneurs . . even a guy who climbs towers to replace those blinking red lights on top! But unquestionably, it's the love of fireworks that is the binding tie. (oh, and the love of food). Yes, secondary only to pyro is the BPG's propensity for top shelf victuals! We've got a wide range of talent represented in the group, from a PGI Grand Master to folks who just put together their first "Dixie Cup" Mine this year, from folks who have shot hundreds of displays to folks who have never shot a shell and just like to watch.
More details on club events and schedules are contained within the pages of the BPG's newsletter, published quarterly. Not only are event locations and dates included, but also the "State of the Union" address from the club President, and interesting "how to" articles and safety tips. Why not print out a membership form from the link on the "Membership" page and join one of America's best pyrotechnic clubs . . .The Bluegrass Pyrotechnics Guild!
