The Pyrotechnics Guild International wants to end its annual convention with a bang so big it sets a world record when it meets in Gillette Aug. 10-16.

To do that, however, would require a temporary road closure. Cam-plex General Manager Jeff Esposito said PGI is asking for the state Department of Transportation to shut down Highway 51 from Garner Lake Road to American Road from 10 to 10:45 p.m. Aug. 16.
