Conference room reserved at my HQ just north of park meadows mall (I-25 & County Line) for aug 31 from 9am- 530pm.

South Metro Fire Rescue Authority Administration
9195 East Mineral Ave
Centennial, CO 80138

Basement level conference room 1 and 2.

Door prizes, projectors and screens, wifi, kitchen, soda and snack machines, bring extension cord and power strips, I think room holds over 100 so there will be plenty of room and it can be divided it we want.

How high is ceiling? I assume 8 ft

I will be bringing 20x120 flex lights that are attached to 14' emt. It will help when giving a nutcracker tutorial

Hi Sean,

The ceiling height in the basement conference rooms measures 8' 11". I was told our board room may have a taller ceiling, I will check next time I am there.

The board room is only 9', so I think we should stick to the basement rooms to have more space.

There will be room to lay it out on the floor or across some tables if you want or we need to find a way to prop up one end.

The floor is fine. I will bring my 20x120 flex strips that are attached to emt.
I will bring Dave Pitts 7' candle, he patterned it after fast eddy.

I will bring my pi player, Dave's 32k channel FPD board and two falcon-16's to run it all.

We have two more comin so we will be close to 20

Thanks
Sean

This is going to be a great show and tell! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has been working on!

I know this is going to be hardware and software intensive (all good topics for this crazy hobby), but as the one that does the sequencing for 2 (3 if you count my brother) separate houses, I'd be interested in hearing what other people's "philosophies and strategies" when it comes to sequencing. Song choices, what/how you decide to turn things on/change color, etc. I know this is more like asking Picaso about color and shapes, but if other people are interested in sharing I would love to listen. I know the itinerary is ambitious, but if attendees are interested it may be worth discussing.

We have people driving down from Fort Collins and up from Colorado springs.

Some suggestions for an agenda

Brian wrote:
- If enough people have the falcon16, perhaps David can talk about setup etc.
- Swap meet if people have stuff to sell or trade.
- Show and tell. I thought this was one of the best parts down in the COS as well as the recent academy in TX.
- setting up rgb / universes to work in LOR3
- how Sean ran show only using nutcracker
- Basics of using vixen 3. Someone in the metro used it exclusively, although I don't remember who.

A demo of the Falcon Pi Player may be neat.
I'd like to see a demo of Vixen 3 and/or HLS.
Maybe a show and tell new show elements.

- i will demonstrate how to share nutcracker sequences. ill bring 20 already done and share them
- will bring my 20x120 flex strips and set them up to demo xlights
Greg write:
- I have a lot of 5 meter WS2811 strips 12VDC still brand new in the bags not opened that I want to sell from Ray Wu. They are just a few weeks old.
- I also would like to set up a 'swap meet' of Christmas light items that we all could buy/sell/trade. Bring all your unused or un-needed christmas light stuff and let's see if we can trade.
-I'm currently needing 5V WS2811 strips as my requirements for my megatree changed in mid build.



What is everyone bringing?

I will bring my laptop and xlights
pi player => FPD => (2) Falcon-16 baords => 32 strings of lights
20x120 flex 1809 strips mounted to 1/2" metal emt. I will lay them out on the floor and make a grid display
Dave Pitts 7' Candle made out of coro
Coro Star, 60 nodes of rgb inside
Maybe, I will bring my 9' (really 8' 10") Nutcracker
My 12' spider for Halloween
