September 2012 finds Team Dominator in Joplin MO at the annual NFA convention for another display. The team put in many long days and faced several weather challenges but the experience of this crew really shined and due to diligence, prep and team work this massive 2,300 cue musical was set up in the field the day of the show in less than 6 hours start to finish! Team Members Ed Vasel, Scott Fleer, Michael Kroeger, Tony Grey and John Perella were all present. Special thanks to Dan Muzzey for his 4th assist! Also huge Kudo’s to Black Market Fireworks In Joplin for their amazing hospitality throughout the week they are truly a class act.
