Posted Today, 12:51 AM (by Bill Hoffman @ PC)

We are getting ready to announce our 2012 Agenda on our site at www.lightupohio.com . We still have a few more "Elf-Ormation" stations available. You may ask "What is an Elf-Ormation station"? Well, it's a way for you to show others your display projects, and to share with them your ideas. We will supply you with a venue to meet, one on one, so you can give back to the community. We are setting aside a couple of hours in the afternoon for attendees to browse "Elf-Ormation" stations, and learn from others. Let me know if you are interested, as we need to wrap this up by the weekend.
Hope to see everyone at LIGHT UP OHIO 2012!! MAY 18th and 19th.

If you think Light Up Ohio 2012 is just going to be about Christmas, THINK AGAIN!
Come to Light Up Ohio 2012 and let a Premier HALLOWEEN Prop builder show you how the pro's do HALLOWEEN. Valerie, from ChristmasLEDS, will be there to demonstrate the art of Prop building. She will start out with a discussion on HALLOWEEN Props in general, and finish up the day with showing you 1-on-1, how you can make your very own Pumpkin, Tombstone, Prop Ghost, etc. Also, she will give you loads of secrets and point you in the right direction to buy some of those hard to find parts. Valerie will also have on hand some of those great Lighting products from ChristmasLEDS, and offer some suggestions to use them in your own display.
TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!! You DO NOT want to miss this event. LIGHT UP OHIO 2012 MAY 18th and 19th.

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!!!

Some people get a little confused when they see our name "Light Up Ohio". They think that since it's called that, we only invite people from Ohio to our Annual Event. Nothing is further from the truth. Lighting Enthusiasts from Ohio are very serious about their displays, and we love to share ideas with everybody. There is nothing better than getting a group of Lighting Enthusiasts together to discuss new ideas, and to give them a venue for sharing and teaching what they have learned.
That's what this whole thing is about. Helping others and "Making Memories".
EVERYBODY is invited to Light Up Ohio 2012. We have had over half the States represented at Light Up Ohio, plus Canada, and even one time Australia. So if you are on the fence about attending an event, and you are a little reluctant to attend, come to Light Up Ohio 2012. I guarantee you will feel at home, learn something to take home to your own display, and most importantly have lots of FUN with a great group of people.
HOPE TO SEE YOU AT LIGHT UP OHIO 2012 MAY 18th and 19th. You can Register at www.lightupohio.com

Where can you spend a day enjoying the friendship and companionship of the nicest people?





Where can you gain a ton of knowledge in a few short hours?





Where can you see, touch, and/or buy the latest products?





Where can you meet one on one with experts willing to share their experiences?





Where can you meet Santa and invite him to your display?





Where can you go to win amazing door prizes?





The one answer to all of these questions is Light Up Ohio 2012. Yes, Light Up Ohio will provide this and a whole lot more. The agenda is filled with great topics and some of the most knowledgeable leaders in the industry. And of course, there is the opportunity to renew friendships and make new friends.





Wow, do you realize it’s only three weeks until Light Up Ohio 2012? Have you registered yet? If not, there is a convenient link a few lines down.





Light Up Ohio is at a new location this year. It’ll be at the Hoover Y Park, a beautiful 65 acre park, just minutes south of downtown Columbus. We have the use of the Ingram Building, an air conditioned (yea), and fully equipped conference facility.





Borrowing a phase from the old TV show “Dragnet”, here are “….just the facts, ma’am.”

MEET & GREET, hosted by Jon Gillie & his wife


Clubhouse at 2400 Holt Park Blvd., Grove City, OH 43213

8:00 – 9:00 Registration and Continental Breakfast


9:00 – 9:30 Buckeye Santas-Santa Eddie will show you how to be the best Santa you can be, and also tell you more about their very interesting organization. Maybe you can become a Buckeye Santa.

2:30 – 4:00 ELF-ORMATION STATIONS WILL BE OPEN! You might ask “what are Elf-Ormation Stations”? This is a term LUO started so people can show their how-tos, or their projects, one on one. It provides a very relaxed atmosphere so people can mingle, and basically check out just things they may be interested in. We’ve had this in the past, but this year it will be expanded upon, and we hope you enjoy it.


4:00 - ? Prize Drawings





Light Up Ohio 2012 is shaping up to the best one ever; but that’ll only be possible with your attendance.





Here is a quote, it’s from David Ogilvy, regarded as the “Father of Advertising”. It’s a baseball analogy and goes like this:


“Don’t bunt. Aim out of the ballpark.”


Light Up Ohio isn’t bunting. They’ve hit it out of the ballpark.





Hope to see you there!!!!

JP...
My goal is to see the CMB16D DC Controller and Servodog in operation or at least talk to someone knowledgeable in the operation of the two boards. I have many questions, and would like to see "hands on" the boards functioning. Do you know if I will have that opportunity at LUO? IF so, I am in...thanks for any assistance.

JP,
I will bring the cmb16d dc controller with me, and have it set up with a Rainbow Flood to show you the operation. We can discuss it, and there will be plenty of people there that are knowledgeable about it and probably the Servodog, also. I don't have the Servodog, but am somewhat familiar with it's operation. Hope to see you at Light Up Ohio 2012.

There are many, many reasons to attend minis, like Light Up Ohio 2012. Some that come to mind would be , great people sharing ideas, lots of fun, vendor discounts, great food, and world class presentations. You will learn from the very best instructors, and also be able to talk one-on-one to people who understand about our passion. You will be in a relaxed atmosphere, which encourgages you to freely ask questions about almost any Holiday Lighting subject you can imagine. PLUS mini's are a great way for people to get together, away from the hustle and bustle of the large events. It's a thing of the future, so be sure to take advantage of a PLUS mini near you. Also, always remember, everybody is welcome at Light Up Ohio 2012. Hope to see you in Columbus, Ohio on May 18th and 19th.

Bill
