    Hello everyone!
    I reserved the room on Friday, I pay for it on Monday.
    The name of the Church is Christ Church in Ridley Park PA. It is tight off the exit of I-95 just south of the Philadelphia International Airport. (5 minutes tops)
    The room cost $300 and we have it from 11:30 am. until 5:30 pm. I will pay for the room and ask if anyone would like to make a donation to help cover that cost, it would be greatly appriciated, BUT NOT REQUIRED to attend. If you would like to make a donation, send me a PM and I will give you my paypal account. THANK YOU TO THOSE THAT HAVE GENEROUSLY DONATED!!!

    There are a few good hoagie/pizza shops nearby that we can order food for a late lunch (so bring some spending money!). I will do my best to make some cookies. (that is to make Ron drive from MA, cookies motivate him :-))

    Our fearless leader Brian has secured some door prizes for a free raffle, some of the venders here have graciously offered items to us!! We must thank our supporters that support us!!!

    Now what can't we do there?

    Well, no adult beverages, it is a Church!
    No Smoking in or around the buildings.
    No welding or soldering lessons.


    What can we do?

    I think a for sale/swap area is a great idea. (I know I have alot of new mini lights I won't need as I am going LED this year)

    Can someone that is familiar with Vixen 3.0 could do a demo?

    How about someone explaining how all the magic smoke works on our boards? (what really happens in the opto?)

    Brian will have a little discussion on the start of DIYC, for those that don't know how it all got started at this great website.

    Ken (Kenl) will talk/demo how to incorporate video into your display, dmx, lor, dumb pixels, xLights, and help with electrical questions.
    Ken has also vonlumteered to bring a projector and an internet connected Laptop! THANKS KEN!!!

    We now have a demo of Nutcracker planned!!!

    We are limited to the room for our gathering, but it has high ceilings (maybe 15' in the center) so if someone wants to show display items they made?

    Anyone want to talk about RGB and F.A.S.T.? Maybe someone can do a small demo?

    As for pixels, I would love to see a demo


    If anyone has any ideas of what they would like to do, send me a PM and I will add it to this list!

    Let's make this a great mini!!!

    I am going to list the Vendors that have graciously agreed to donate a prize for the Philly Mini raffle.

    I would be more than happy to talk about the birth of DIYC, that is if anyone is interested. I will just leave out the boring parts about Lou.

    Optos are easy. I know what they do. They turn on the lights, LOL

    I should be able to bring a projector from work, provided they do not need it there, it may be hit or miss. If someone can secure one that would be better.

    Laptop, no problem. Internet connection, that depends on the cellular coverage in the area. How is Verizon down there?

    Oh yeah, count me in being there. You can confirm my attendance.
    Thanks,
    Brian, your friendly site Admin.

    2013 stats, if all goes as planned:
    2688 pixels, 4 E68x, 1450 RGB leds, 90 DMX channels

    edit: Things are not going as planned

    If it's raining, could you stop by and pick me up on the way Dano? The last time you were here my car became useless in a rainstorm...

    I am going to try and attend this (since it is close to NJ) but will not promise anything just yet. Of course I will have all the new fun Seasonal Entertainment products with me. We also should have all the LED light strings in stock by than and can sell a few at a discounted price . I already talked to Brian and will gladly help out with some door prizes and if I attend can bring all our fancy give-aways.

    Are there any rules about selling products there? I can of course give a noticeable discount on come products there ;)

    No problem. If we can't...we can't. I can just hand out coupons for discounts on the site.

    This should be informational and fun, not about causing any more headaches.
