F7/10 - [1/6]

This is how the first safe rave at the Drop Inn went. We had just over 80 young people attend. It was a crazy night! DJ Darrel brought his Laptop down to mix some tunes. It started a mix then ended with Dubstep, Drum and Base and Heavy house music.

Portland 6 - Wheelchair Rugby

This was the 6th time The Drop Inn has visited Portland college, which is always good fun. This time we were playing wheelchair rugby which is a lot harder than the wheelchair basket ball.

The second match was 7 - 3 to Portland, The Drop Inn side got completely flattened. The wheelchair rugby sport is so demanding, but so much fun!

The final score was 5 to Portland and 4 to The Drop Inn. It was a close game, both sides played so hard. Looking forward to the next visit.

Thank you to The Rotary Club and Portland college it was really amazing, Hope to arrange something soon so you can come to The Drop Inn for a second visit. We have some idea's involving beat boxing with our new Loop pedal.
Thank you again, D-i x

These are the new beams with the wave design in place. It looks a lot smarter now!

This is the start of the new wave design for the beams. This will replace the old plain wooden beams that were there in the original warehouse.

Filmcity session of Editing

Filmcity have been teaching us how to edit the footage of a program called Final Cut Pro. It's amazing watching our film take shape. We are looking for people to produce soundtracks for the film, we have some all ready but need more choice to make it more entertaining. We have a few more sessions unplanned so far to finish the editing off, then the film will be being screened.

Following all the filming sessions, this is the last session which involved editing some of the footage.

Another clothes order with mainly Hoodies for the Student Placements

Pool Tournaments to re-start

We are looking at starting the pool tournaments with the Police again, but also including a team from the Fire service, and a team from the Rotary Club. The old tournaments were won by the police the first time then The Drop Inn so it's been an even match through history. We've got a brand new pool table, which leaves no excuse for poor play. We will et you know when the dates are announced! D-i x

The new lighting system is half way there now. We have added a new blue and green strip light, which has created a new face to our interactive graffiti wall. The wall now has four different faces, U.V, Blu-light, Glow in the dark and the standard white light wall. The new spot lights should be up and ready by next week!
