  1. Just a quick reminder that the NJ mini (EPIC) will be held on April 6th. We have a great time, relaxed atmosphere, door prizes, wonderful venue, fantastic lunch, Red Cup Social on Friday night. There are reduced room rates for those traveling in also! Check us out! Any questions, feel free to message me. https://dancona4.wixsite.com/epicchristmas
  2. Since your brackets are busted and your teams are on their way home, might as well sign up for the Jersey mini today!!
  3. I received a nice note from someone who will be attending the mini this year, which they stated they are new and very much looking forward to the event. Got me thinking, if you are relatively new to the hobby, I don't want you to think this will be only for those that have been around for a while. Please sign up!! You will never again have the opportunity this year to talk in person to those that have the answers to all your questions!!! April 14th is right around the corner!!! Hope to see all of you there!!
  4. Registration is now open! Visit the web page below to sign up. This year’s event will be held on April 14th at Pierre's in the Dayton section of So Brunswick. The site is easily accessible from the NJ Turnpike and Route 130. Doors open at 9:30, presentations start at 10am, lunch around 12:30 and we wrap up at about 5 or so. Cost this year is $50 per person. I have made every effort to keep the cost down. Agenda is still in the works. I think we are going to have a very loose agenda this year with a few presentations early in the day and then possibly some smaller group discussions on topics of interest that were brought up via the survey. At least, I hope we can accomplish this. With that said, I encourage you all to bring along something you’re proud of or made or possibly an item that others have made mention of here. Check with me if you have any questions. . In years past, is seems like people enjoy the milling around between stations and being able to have more time to talk to one another. I’m open to anyone that would like to be a presenter. I’ll post some topics soon, or if you have one, let me know. For those coming in from a distance, hotel arrangements have been made with a slightly reduced rate at the Renaissance/ South Brunswick, same hotel as the past 2 years. You will find a link on the web page that will assist in making the reservations or simply call the hotel – number on the web page. The reduced rate covers room bookings for Thursday as well as Friday and Saturday, as I’m aware some may come in earlier. Red Cup Social will of course be held on Friday night. The restaurant will be announced soon. Everyone will well come to attend. There is still a lot of work to be done prior to the event, so please stay tuned. The web site will be updated accordingly throughout prior to the date of the event. https://dancona4.wixsite.com/tristatemini2018 You can also play along on FB https://www.facebook.com/groups/157080087781386/

  6. 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.
  7. 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

  9. 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
  10. 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?
  11. Less than 30 days till the Jersey mini!! Info can be found here: http://twinklinghouse.com/3Xmas.html
  12. 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.
  13. 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/
  14. 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
