  1. Cranbury. Just off Exit 8A NJTPK https://www.facebook.com/groups/157080087781386/
  2. Less than 2 weeks away from the event day!! Still time to sign up. We are having a great presentation on wifi and Falcon Player along with running your show with a PI, some beginner and on up discussions on XLights, possibly some talk on animatronics in your display (if the this poster can find some time), video mapping and more I can't recall right now. Swap Meet - bring along your unwanted items or cash to buy someone else's unwanted items!!! If you're local, what else do you have to do on a Saturday - grass isn't even growing yet. If you're out of town, I believe there are still some rooms available at the discount rate. I can guarantee you will have a great time and heck, may even learn something.
  3. I'd like to that our very own Dan and Mary @ LOR for their support of the event with a door prize. Along with them are: Dirk @ DIGWDF store, Val over at Christmas LEDs, Todd @ DIYLED Express , Paul @ Creative Displays, Demented Elf James @ Boscoyo Studios

  5. A little late in posting, but the Jersey Mini - Tri-State event will be held on April 22nd in Cranbury, NJ this year. More info can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/157080087781386/ I have also attached the proposed agenda. Tri State Christmas proposed agenda 2017.pdf
  6. All of a sudden, when I open a new or existing sequence, the cursor automatically goes to the color fade option. Prior it would be the pointer, which is preferred. I checked around looking for a settings option, but could not find any. Any suggestions as to get the program back to the original state?
  7. Less than 30 days till the Jersey mini!! Info can be found here: http://twinklinghouse.com/3Xmas.html
  8. Registration is now open!! Payment is via Paypal. http://twinklinghouse.com/3Xmas.html Please check out the vendors that have contributed to the event, located at the bottom of the web site.
  9. Formally known as EPIC, Jersey Mini, now going by Tri-State. No matter what the name, same event. This year we are hosting the event on April 23rd at the VFW Post 133 in East Brunswick, NJ. Event will go from about 9am till 5:30 (we have to be out then). Agenda and particulars will follow soon. Typical swap / sell meet. Red Cup Social on Friday night. Area hotel is the Marriot Courtyard in Cranbury / Monroe just off Exit 8A on the NJTPK. The event is a short drive away – on the same road even – about 10 minutes. Stay tuned for information as it comes. Link to FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/157080087781386/
  10. I have used the Winfield motors few years back and had terrible results with them. Each one had the internal gears stip out. Once a prop gets hung up a bit, the motor will fail. I use wiper motors for most all of my display work and have great success. I use computer PS for them and run them at various voltages to get the speed desired. +1 for the Windfield plans though. Printed on heavy paper and they have great detail. I built the carousel 2 seasons ago and has been running strong! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ed0nvu4U2IY
  11. Paul's baking was great!!!!
  12. Saturday, June 21st Street address is 12 Cohee Circle, Wilmington, DE 19803. Start time will be around 10AM. We will be outside, so dress comfortably. The event will go until, well, whenever everyone gets tired of talking lights and controllers. Lunch will be served mid afternoon and later we'll have something for those sticking around diner time. As I have noted prior, the agenda is really an open forum. If there is something you really need help on, or a certain controller / software you would like to see, post it up! We have some very knowledgeable people attending in various different subjects. Looking to clean out that garage or basement with no longer needed things? Bring them along there may be someone looking for what you have. Bring your wallet too!! Just in case you see something you must have!! Long term forecast looks very favorable!!
  13. Hope I'm ready!
