Monday 17th October was the eCigs2go Castle Bromwich grand opening event in Birmingham.
The day started slowly with only 5 or so people turning up, hanging around and enjoying the snacks the owners put out for the party. However, as time went on the numbers grew and before we knew it the whole shop was full with vapers and the clouds were in full effect.
There were multiple competitions and raffles planned for the evening and lots of chance for the visitors to head home with some free goodies. First up was the Raffle with first, second and third place prize winners. The first prize was a Dot Mod Mech mod and a combo of E-Liquids, shirts and hats from the event sponsors @councilofvapor @lord_vapers and @thevapesuk with a smaller goodie bag of juice and merch for second and third place winners – Some fantastic prizes to be sent home with!
Soon after, the sign up for the regulated and mechanical cloud competition began, which we also couldn’t resist giving a go. The first two contestants were called to compete in the regulated cloud competition which whittled down to the final two, with Taz @vapebeardauthentic taking first and Dom @metaldom second!
After prizes were handed out and selfies taken we had chance to catch up with a more local vapers at the event discussing, devices, new juices and the recently attended VaperExpoUK event the previous weekend. Being fans of a Vape and a nice beer ourselves we then had our arm twisted into trying the Cafe Racer beer pairing which went down a treat! We would recommend the lucky 13 (a creamy toasted almond with caramel and tobacco).
The Mechanical Mod Cloud Competition was next up – which our own Ryan @ohm_my_gosh decided to enter, eventually taking first place just ahead of Alex @ohmboyzdripcity congratulations to them both on their wins with some excellent runs from the other contestants.
All in all the evening was a memorable occasion and a great show. The owners Norma & Greg were amazing hosts to the local vapers who came down. A big pat on the back for lining up the very ‘supportive sponsors’ of the evening who were very welcoming and great to meet.
