Taking the weather with you
The last Sunday before August bank holiday Monday. Always my favourite date on the calendar as we get invited by Disco Dion & Emma Spencer to take the Sarum Stars cheerleaders along to do a demonstration at their free charity family funday.
I always take my camera along to capture the kids in action for the FB page, this year however I had a message asking if it would be possible for me to capture the event. For them? – Of course I said yes!
The weather forecast was iffy to say the least but as Dion said “It never rains on Sunday Funday!” (Which is actually true!) so as the music got cranked up & the fun began, 1st with Durrington Rangers FC, followed by Ignite Family Mixed Kickboxing. Then the rain began to fall...... just in time for the Cheerleaders display!! Sadly this meant a major re-think of what they could do safely. Whilst discussions were going on DJ Dion did what he does best & got the arena rocking with fun & games. Until the rain subsided enough for the cheerleaders to do some sort of Demo.
The rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits & even a cramped Casa De Samba drumming display played under a Gazebo managed to gather a crowd!
All in all it was another great event & game me the opportunity to shoot thinks I haven’t before in the way of Football & Kickboxing.
Why not visit the FB page & keep an eye out for next year’s event! – I can’t recommend it enough!
& a HUGE THANKS To Dion & Emma for having me join the team!!
