How did you rate the fireworks last night?
My winner was - Southover, extremely impressive and long.
Very close second - Commercial,
Third - Borough, surprised by them last night!
Fourth - Waterloo, very short
Fifth - Cliffe, Not a great variety and just seemed to pump the same fireworks up for about half an hour to last as long as CS and SBS
Didn't see South Streets unfortunately

Your good to go to all of them in one night how did you do it or are you just a troll ?

I saw all except Cliffe. I can only talk about the aerial stuff (nothing too close to the ground!) but agree that Southover was most impressive followed by Commercial. South Street was fine, Borough seemed a bit weak to me and Waterloo was fairly short.
Is there anywhere to stand and see them all?

Waterloo started first at 10pm on the dot, They went on for 20 minutes....thought they were ok
The fireworks up on the top of nevill (Borough ?) seemed to go on for ages and were superb.
Commercials started at 10.40 and finnished at 11pm and again, were ok. All i could see from my position.

Please set out your judging criteria, townie.

The judging criteria is rather important, as is the fact that nobody saw ALL of more than 1 display. You simply cannot suggest that 1 display is better than another if you haven't actually seen them both in their entirity!
ALL the firework displays will consist of low-level and high-level parts, set-pieces, tableau and effigies. Just seeing a few aerial shells cannot begin to show you the front-field, or effigiy displays.

Precisely. And you shouldn't forget about the creative use of the available budget either. People like townie come across as glib superficial knobs.

I was at CSBS this year, Usually go to waterloo but I think I made the right choice, We could see Waterloo's display from the CSBS Site, Seemed to only last for about 10 minutes.

I think you've made 'your position' very clear to all, townie. Bent right over with your head up your ar*e.
I asked for judging criteria, not evidence of scientific controls etc. For instance, it appears that just length is what matters to you, not what you do with it.

It is certainly within living memory that there were no real aerial fireworks in the Cliffe's display. I don't know but I guess it is a similar story with the other societies. They only really became a regular feature to fill in the gaps between the Guy, the Pope and the Tableau. These are what set the Bonfire Societies apart from being just any old run of the mill display. Therefore, to judge a societies display based on seeing the aerial stuff only really has no relevance. Apart from anything, how can you appreciate a firework display that you can only see in the distance? You need to be under it to see it properly, and close enough to feel the bangs as well as hear them!

I only care about the one I am watching and the one I was watching was superb - especially feeling the bangs going through the ground during the finale. FANTASTIC.
If someone had a bigger and better one than mine then good luck to them. Live for the moment! (BTW I do know where I was!)

No one here seems to know what they're on about when it comes to airial! Yes I agree you cannot either be able to be at every display nor can you judge the entirety of any display by airial from a distance alone! You do need to find a happy medium! Airial displays are best viewed 1/4 mile down wind (apparently).... but we all know that's not always possible! Also you need to be up and close to be able to appreciate the effects coming from the Effigies, Tableu etc! Especially the destruction!! BOOM! .... I would like to say that I agree it is nice to be able to look up and see the sky full of colour/effects! .... I guess it's what ever floats your boat really!

Eh? You say "No-one knows what they're on about..." but then proceed to agree left right and centre! You're not 'townie' back with more, are you?
