I'm interested.  Aug 24 is bad for me, I have a wedding to attend out of state.  But otherwise I'm in.

It Looks like Aug 31 will work for the most folks.
 
grep.ca says he can host. Greg can you confirm?
Backup, Steve (mms) thinks he can reserve a conference room at the radio station he works at. 
 
I was thinking 10am to 5pm on Aug 31? We have people driving down from Fort Collins and up from Colorado springs.
 
What would you like to see discussed? I will give a talk on the latest Nutcracker and explain the new library of marked up songs from audacity.
 
Other subjects?
 
thanks

July 22 Update:

 

What: Denver Area Christmas Get Together

When: 10am-5pm Aug 31 , 2013

Where: This is changing as the list of people has gotten larger than Greg thinks he can host. Brian is looking at a conference room at the Admin office of the Fire Department where he works. Steve (mms) might be able to get a conference room at his radio station. He is a DJ on radio station KEZW in Denver (http://tunein.com/program/?ProgramId=432614&StationId=32570)

3rd backup is Sean to get conference room at St Andrew church, Highlands Ranch.

Some suggestions for an agenda

 

Brian wrote:

- If enough people have the falcon16, perhaps David can talk about setup etc.

- Swap meet if people have stuff to sell or trade.

- Show and tell. I thought this was one of the best parts down in the COS as well as the recent academy in TX.

- setting up rgb / universes to work in LOR3

- how Sean ran show only using nutcracker

- Basics of using vixen 3. Someone in the metro used it exclusively, although I don't remember who.

mms wrote:

A demo of the Falcon Pi Player may be neat.

I'd like to see a demo of Vixen 3 and/or HLS.

Maybe a show and tell new show elements.

sean wrote:

- i will demonstrate how to share nutcracker sequences. ill bring 20 already done and share them

- will bring my 20x120 flex strips and set them up to demo xlights

Greg write:

- I have a lot of 5 meter WS2811 strips 12VDC still brand new in the bags not opened that I want to sell from Ray Wu.  They are just a few     weeks old. 

- I also would like to set up a 'swap meet' of Christmas light items that we all could buy/sell/trade. Bring all your unused or un-needed christmas light stuff and let's see if we can trade. 

-I'm currently needing 5V WS2811 strips as my requirements for my megatree changed in mid build.

 

 

Thanks all

I know that I would like to look at some of the WS-2811 Strip lights and any DMX Controllers. Definitely trying to learn more about the smart Pixels. Whomever has some WS2811 12V Strips for sale, I would be interested in possible swap or purchase. :)

Sean,  Did you hear from Eddi, AKA 'TheJackal'?  He's in Denver, I haven't seen him post lately.  I'm sure he'd be interested in attending.

I would like to know who in the group here may have the ws2811's for sale?  I'd like to find out price to make sure there are enough funds available in the budget by meeting time.

 

thanks
