Anyone interested in forming a group in the Bay Area (California)?

Recommended Posts

Could you make July 27th then too or was quoting your way of emphasizing you prefer the latter (August 3)? :)

Either date is OK with me.

Darn, July 27 and Aug 3rd do not work for me. The day after (Sunday) for both of those dates does work.

August 5th works ( sunday) for me, as does the 18th.

Getting it to work for everyone is going to be difficult.

Perhaps, the people that are hosting should pick a date for there location that works best for them, and the rest of us make it work (or not).

I tend to agree with you. No date will work for everyone. August 5th is a Monday BTW.

Somehow I got elected to propose a date and agenda - so here it is. Chime in if you want a different date/time - or if you would like to teach one of the sessions -

 

 

Ok - What about Saturday, July 20, 2013? in Fremont, Near Mission San Jose off of Hwy 680.


Agenda could be;


 


10am - meet and greet , share experiences with LOR 


11am - Seminar session 1 - (need a subject/leader)


12Noon - Lunch break -


1pm - Seminar session 2 - (need a subject/leader )


3pm - wrap up


3:30 end


 


 I have a dedicated computer for LOR - and can share access to the wireless here for others computers during the event.


I could share either last year's setup (48 channels /mini/led) with power planning, controller balancing and setup/tear down.  - I could also share this year's planning for the 12 CCR tree under construction using 3/4" alum tubing that will run in addition to my initial 48 channels from last year.

 

The agenda should serve the interests of those who can attend - so I am open to that.

Starting at 10 and ending by 3:30 should give our out of town crowd an easier way to join in.

I'd have to say i'm a "maybe" for the 20th. Was supposed to head up to Boy Scout camp (Wolfeboro) with my son that day (a day early) but maybe we could skip the extra day and just go up for the normal amount of time.

I'll be there.

 

May I make a suggestion? Once the date is set, charge a nominal "registration fee" so you can buy refreshments. Then you'll know who is serious so you can get a more reliable head count.

I think I count 5 of us that could make a July 20th - That is ok for a start I think.  Steve's comment about charging a fee for refresments is ok - think a few dollars for the kitty.

The list of attenders now is

Steve, Sunnyvale

TheBarron,

Ken Benedict, Orangevale

TBetGeorge, Newark

Hugh Tebault, Fremont

 

Still looking for agenda leaders - what do we want to talk about - learn about - discuss - ?

I'll be out of town that weekend, but one thing you may want to talk about is a group buy to save on shipping.

I can bring a meat and cheese tray with sodas I like.

If there's room, I can bring some of the hardware I'm using.

Hey guys,

 

I've been able to change my schedule and would love to attend!

 

I am a complete newbie - never created a show of any kind (well except for the contest earlier this year). I don't have much to offer at this point but would love to take in as much of your experience as possible.

 

I have 64 AC (2 controllers are still kits I have yet to build) and 16 DC channels. I think what I would like the most is some help on the general placement of props given my landscape, i.e., arches should go here behind the mini-trees or maybe in front, etc.

 

As far as refreshments I am partial to Lagunatis (beer) but alas it is not on the list so water is fine for me. I have no dietary restrictions. I'm more than willing to pony up some $$ to for whatever expenses are incurred.  

 

Thanks to htebault for hosting!
