I am in the planning stages of a get together for May 5 in the Denver metro area. I am looking for both ideas to topics to cover and peolpe to discusss a topic they have an interest in. Let me know if you have any ideas. So far we are thinking of the following:

sequencing with LOR3, LSP2, Vixen3
Nutcracker software
Hacking a Dougie Tree
Audio workshop

Bumping this up as I have heard from several attendees, but only a few with topics of interest. Be sure to let Scot or I know if you want to present or just see something presented.

Just another bump as the time is drawing near. I have heard from about 15 people so far, with the farthest being in Nebraska. We would love to have anyone and hope to have several things to offer. So far we will have a sequencing session with Vixen, a discussion on setting up a DMX and / or Pixelnet universe, a presentation on the Nutcraker software, a time for showing off if you want to bring an item to setup, and a trade show to get rid of all those lights and stuff you aren't using. We plan on starting about 0930 in Parker, CO.

PM or email for more details,

Greetings everyone. I hope everyone is still planning on coming to the CO Mini this Saturday. Here is a suggested schedule:

900 am - meet and greet
1000 am - Creating a sequence with Vixen by Tim Thompson
1130 am - lunch (order pizza?)
1200 pm - DMX & Pixelnet Universes with Gary
130 pm - Nutcracker with Sean Meighan
300 pm - show off (bring anything you want show off or demo for others)
400 pm - trade show (bring your unwanted items to sell or trade)

I will have a couple of laptops for us to use, at least one projector, some LOR controllers with usb dongle, some Lynx controllers with usb dongle, some smart strings with controllers, and lots of extension cords. If someone has an LCD projector, please bring it.

I have LOR2 software, downloaded Vixen 2.1 and 3.0 beta (I will try to install before Saturday), and XLights.

I will have some coffee and soda available, if you need something special better bring it along with something to snack on. My wife will be making some Christmas Holly. I thought we could order pizza for lunch to make it easy.

Things to bring include: a laptop if you want to follow along and build a sequence, a fold up chair as I only have seating for about 14 without using the floor, stuff to barter or sell, your top 2 decorating tips to share with the group.

Just some thoughts, nothing too concrete that way we can go where the day leads us.

PM or email if you need more info.
