Bumperball @OSCAR

  This week we had the great privilege to provide Bumperballs to Elmwood Oscar. We have balls of different sizes to cater to the small ones and the intermediates. The young ones especially like being barrel-rolled around and doing flips. Sam took the drone and got some great footage. He’s getting a dab-hand at post production and this video is the fruit of his labours. […]

Raindrops keep falling on my head…

  A question we are often asked: “What is your wet weather policy?” Our ‘inclement weather’ policy (high winds/rain) is as follows: 1… If the event is cancelled in good time such that staff haven’t been called out then the full amount for your event is repayable. The weather is no one’s fault and so we don’t think you should be penalised for it. This […]

When was the last time…?

People often ask what I do in Winter. My usual reply is “Watch dollar signs run down the window panes”. This last weekend I pegged in a castle at Rawhiti Domain. As I hammered in the last peg, I did wonder when the last time I had pegged in a bouncy castle! As it turns out it was quite a few weeks ago (about 6!). […]

Left to themselves these units, mats etc would be quite smelly by the time they are next used! Thyese were at a large corporate job so it was worth it for us…as long as I keep telling […]

Test & Tag

A couple of days ago it was “Test and Tag” time here at Bubbling with Energy! All leads, blowers, pumps etc are tested and tagged twice a year. There are some that see this as a pointless exercise and perhaps it would be, except we regularly have leads and some (old) metal blowers fail. The leads are usually due to poor connections in the sockets […]

Children’s Day

OK, we almost melted at Children’s Day, but for the thousands of children and parent’s who made the journey into the red zone for the event it was a great day. The climbing wall, above, proved a great hit despite having to close the North facing sides due to the heat I drove the little blue train for most of the event. Mike Coutts the […]

The All New Climbing Wall

The all new Climbing Wall made its debut at Lincoln University on the Ivy Lawn. Lots of students managed the climb. Lots didn’t! Me? Yeah…nah. Happy to be firmly on terra firma.
