Three Brothers…..

Three choices …. one destiny! So goes the title of Cockermouth school’s performance in this year’s Rock Challenge event at the Sands Centre in Carlisle tonight.

The school have always presented our company with interesting projects, be it Polka dot jerseys for their ‘King of the Mountain’, Gingerbread Men T-Shirts or, in this case ‘The face of Death’. The most pleasing thing about this year’s design was that it allowed us to try out a new product – the ‘Glow in the Dark’ garment film – on the front of their Rock Challenge T-Shirts. We hope that it has had the necessary effect for them at tonight’s performance.

The dancers and crew of the Cockermouth School's Rock Challenge team. Just 'Wow' at the 'Death Puppet' .... and the glow-in-the-dark T-Shirts, of course!!

Although the school have been involved in the show tonight, they were not competing against the other schools in this event, as they are one of the premier ‘Showcase’ schools in the competition. The ‘real’ event for them is to be staged at Grimsby Auditorium on Saturday 23rd June against one of our ‘local’ teams, Peterhead Academy, who are another of the ‘elite’ premier schools. They are, however, eligible for other awards that are given at the Carlisle event for various aspects of their performance.

The photo above has been with us for a couple of days as it was taken during rehearsals, but we have been sworn to secrecy until after tonight’s performance about the ‘Death Puppet’, so have been unable to post it until now.

We hope to get a full report from our two spies (Amanda and Natalie) about the Cockermouth performance in the near future, along with details of how you can help support them in the ‘Race for Life’ event in June!

News has just come through that West Lakes Academy has just won tonight’s event, so many congratulations to them! We hope that they might like to use us for their T-Shirts next year….just a thought!!

More News just in (7/5/12) …. Cockermouth also picked up awards for best backstage crew & spirit of rock challenge!

It’s Friday again! Time for “Where’s Waves?”

Ping Polo Shirt
Three of these top quality Ping Polo Shirts are up for winning this week in our competition.

Another warm welcome is extended this week to the listeners of Waves Radio, especially those of you who are listening to the “Into the Weekend” show which our company is proud to sponsor. We hope that, as well as trying to answer our “Where’s Waves?” question, you will spend a little time looking around this blog as I’m certain that you will find many items of interest here. I have posted a guide for new visitors from Waves, which can be found by clicking here.

This week we have Ping polo shirts up for grabs to three randomly chosen visitors who correctly identify the location of this local photograph.

Where's Waves?
Correctly identify the town where this shot has been taken to win a Ping polo shirt.

To enter the competition, just comment¹ this post in the ‘Leave a Reply’ box below with the words “Waves have been to” ..and then the name of the town (or village) in which the photo was taken.

e.g. “Waves have been to Strichen” is a valid entry but “Waves have been to White Cow Woods” is invalid.

As before, we will close the competition at noon on Wednesday and randomly draw 3 winners from all correct entries.

We will declare the 3 winning entries just after 12 noon on Wednesday (9th May) by posting their comments under this article. The three winners will then be contacted by email for delivery instructions and their choice of size.

We wish you all the best of luck, and hope that you enjoy tonight’s show on 101.2 FM!!
