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!!!

UPDATE

Needed to change the times. The times as shown above are correct. They wanted us to wait until Mass was over, they mistakenly thought the 15th was a Saturday.

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.

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 ;)

I will discuss with Brian about selling stuff, personally I don't mind, but Brian is The Boss, and I do as he says!

Lou

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.

The only cash required is if you want to buy something or get something to eat.
Covering the room cost is stricty donation. And I can send you Paypal address if you want to do that.

Anyone working on the Arduino Stand Alone going to be there??? I can bring some snacks too if needed. Cookies, cakes or etc.

Thanks for this!!! I really appreciate the support and knowledge this site provides!!!

I am a beginner in this hobby. I have read the forums daily for over a year not knowing what I actually read in most cases. I have successfully built and operated last Christmas 1 Ren SS16, and 1 Ren SS24 (More controllers on order from James). I plan to take the next step into dumb RGB for window frames and F.A.S.T. for the gutters this year. Maybe someone can do a small demo. I know that I will have some questions to ask.

As for pixels, I would love to see a demo but I know that this is technically beyond my wildest dreams for now. I have to wait until the experts get it down pat and a step by step guide is in the Wiki "Pixels for Dummies."

I have heard alot about "CORO". I have seen DMoore video's on it but never actually seen it. Maybe someone has some at home and do a small demo?

Since this is my first mini, I really don't know what to expect.......But is sure sounds like fun!
What would you guys like to experience?

I received he generous prizes that Judy has donated. 2 autographed copies of her CD and 2 shirts. You guys have no idea how many great prizes that have been donated by our generous vendors. They vary in size from circuit boards to wireframes and lighted wreaths. Next year someone else has to get the prizes so I can get a chance to win some of them! LOL

I'll have 2 laptops. One with the public release of S3 3.4.0, and the other with a fresh install of LSP... and Beta 3.4.102 (E1.31) S3. Bring a flash drive and you're welcome to use either as you see fit.

If Ray gets my ribbon order out this week, I should have a few 3001 "North Poles" finished by then. I'll bring my version of your J channel node frames too.

I also have a large box of 12 pin Molex pairs someone offered up for grabs. Anyone that can use them is welcome to take a few and a handful of pins. I've got a few other things for Lou's sale table. (I like cookies too)

The lightning, the thunder, the hail and the wind

That was a fast moving storm. Flew by, started when I woke up at 5 and was gone by the time I left for work at 6:30. Scared the pooch half ta death!

DanO, If you need some now, say the word and I'll put them in an envelope. A member of the LOR forum bought them and then decided not to use them. He offered them to me. I told him I'd take them to the Epic or this meet and share them.

He will also have one of my arch stars on display and be giving it away. This picture is before having it powder coated. If you don't win be sure to look at my site for the Christmas in July sale prices.

When standing on Sellers Avenue looking at the building, to the right is the alley, walk up the alley and you will see a set of double doors. I will post a sign on them. Enter those doors and the stair is on your right. follow the stair to the second floor the hall is on the second floor.

Anyone wants my phone number send me a PM and I will give you my cell.

Hi All,

Yup, it's me! I've been swallowed up at work putting in 60 hour weeks all year long, and it has been hard to do anything else lately. I have a feeling I'm going to have difficulty trying to set up a display this year... but I'll make it happen somehow!

Lou, can I donate to you directly on Sunday or do you want me to go through PayPal?

Thanks!

I am all packed and ready to leave 1st thing Monday morning. See all of you on Monday!

I have secured enough donated raffles prizes that no one should leave empty handed, except me! :( The prizes range from blank circuit boards, wire frames, rgb ribbon, controllers to 1 4 foot lighted wreath, I think it is lighted, autographed cds from Judy Pancoast and lots of stuff in between.

I am sorry to say that I came down with a nasty Head/Sinus cold last night. Couldn't sleep at all last night(blink, blink, flash, blink). Sore throat, headache, stuffy noise, sinus, etc.
I was in bed all day into the evening. I don't know what brought this on. Chances are that I will not be attending the Mini.:angry:
