It's definitely on!!!! TuppetsDad has 'retired' from organising this year after great years of service. I'm running with some of it (primarily keeping momentum) until someone puts their hand up (if they ever do) to make sure I have one to go to Date: 17-18 May Venue: CNC Design, 1K Marine Parade, Abbotsford, 3167 Wiki link: click here (work in progress) Cost: To be determined. The weekend is ours. Now the question is what we want to do with it. Last years wiki entry shows the topics covered last year. From what I understand the mini's serve a number of purposes: To share knowledge, to both novices and experienced users, on Software, Hardware, Sequencing, Electronics etc. To showcase new toys and changes in the industry. To meet with others who share your blinky passion and network with like-minded souls. To show of your toys if you so desire. The next major step, as I see it, is to lock in topics. Best way to do that is for people to say what they want! So please share in this thread what you hope to get out of it. Andrew Frazer has offered a door prize (see this thread) and offered to do a slot on either Networking and/or Multicast. Other prizes and topics will come soon. I've also started approaching some vendors to try and get their presence at the event. If your able to come please use the event registration above this post, and use the comments if you are only attending 1 day. That will help everyone keep track. Let's make it a good one!
