    Default KC Area Mini- It's a go! June 24th

    Edit 6/21/17: Only a couple days until the Mini! If you have any last minute needs or questions, please post here or PM me. I will be sending a group email later today with a map, parking suggestions, and a few last minute details.

    Okay, it’s official. Mark your calendars now for JUNE 24, 2017 for the KC Area Mini. The event will be held at my house. This is on the west side of the KC Metro.

    Tentative schedule is as follows:

    8-9am Arrive, meet and greet. Bagels and donuts will be provided. Fridge will be stocked with water, tea and soda

    9am-12pm Morning session, participant presentations, topics and presenters will be lined up prior to the event

    12-1pm Lunch, provided on site

    1-5pm Continue with any prepared presentations, move into ‘popcorn’ Q&A, Show and tell time, peruse sample controllers and such that are on hand

    5-6pm Wind down, pack up

    6pm Dinner at nearby restaurant in reserved room. This will depend on interest level, and will be just for fun

    We will have various equipment on hand for presenters- if you need/want something special, please let me know via PM and we will try and work something out.

    I have contacted a number of forum vendors about possible door prize donations. A couple have confirmed thus far, and I expect more to do likewise.

    If travelling from out of town, I am willing to help with hotel recommendations, etc. Same for any sightseeing you wish to do while in town.

    Since we are providing food, I would like to have a fairly solid head count, so please reply to this thread to help keep count. I will also send everyone who signs up a questionnaire via PM to help determine presentations.

    Please feel free to ask any questions on this thread or via PM.
    Bruce

    Hi, I'm UK so won't be able to join you but it sounds fun. Given that you will have a few faces in one place if you wanted to skype during the 5->6 pack up it would be nice to put some faces to the forum names and say hi from this side of the pond.

    Im a firm maybe at this point. I do understand the importance of headcount and will try to get a solid yes/no answer soon.

    Im also not quite sure what I would speak about regarding my display as its fairly entry level compared to most on this channel.
    2016 - 32 LOR Channels - Roughly 5,000 Lights
    2017 - 64 LOR Channels - Hoping for 10,000+ Lights

    I went ahead and added you to the list. I'd rather err to the higher count.

    No pressure to speak. Most of us have done something in our display that no one else has. Doesn't have to be rocket science
