Do we want to see RPC/BlueRoom again?
« on: April 06, 2021, 03:53:29 PM »

As many will be aware, and I'm sure many wont... I introduced Rob to the forum quite some years ago now, and for a while was very active highlighting Robs work, building offers and speaking with other members about equipment, processes and dealing with a lot of general enquiries etc.

It just so happens that I have recently relocated from the North and now reside around 25 minutes from Robs Workshop.

The question is as per the subject header.... Would users like to see a more active Rob Pack / Blue Room section again?

If so, are there any specific things you want to see?

Cheers

Sorry, I should elaborate - RPC will probably be the last stop I make before I start reducing the collection significantly. I've always wanted to own one, and I love checking out his Instagram etc.

For me, personally, I'd love to see Rob talk through his bat range. A lot of us are geeks here, so would like to know the ins and outs of the profiles, what he had in mind when designing them etc. Also maybe even a timelapse of him preparing a bat, as I know he does the preparation for them too.

Forum special offers, ask the Batmaker interviews, be it in write up or video format. (Assuming he has time)

The least i can do is put peoples requests and ideas to Rob and see what he says.
Time is always a massive factor, and now he is in there on his own most days (save for a hand from his old man every so often) it may be quite a challenge to get him on camera. I may be able to get some notes from him to regurgitate on the forum though and drop in more regular and get my own footage and images etc. Keep people posted on the development side of things as well.

We always ran offers before and I have no doubt he will do again, the hardest part was logistics for me to and from as was a near enough 5 hour round trip. but now I am closer I can arrange visits more regular so should be able to provide most of what people will request.

I'm sure an image of Rob's press would go down well with some people.  ;)

Yes certainly the more input from bat makers the better certainly one with the pedigree of Rob

Yes pls. One of the Kent players gave me a Kookaburra made by him back in the day, and it was the dictionary definition of epic.

When I've spoken to Rob he always comes across as a really nice bloke.

He seems to actually care about his customers so would love to see some more RPC/Blueroom content.

I'm in Bedfordshire and tempted to consider getting a bat made from Rob. Would be great to hear about his favourite bat profiles he's made.
