    I hadnt posted here on ACL thinking you are all in Australia/New Zealand. I know that is false, so if any are in Denver area.


    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.

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

    I'd like to see a demo of Vixen 3 and/or HLS.
    Maybe a show and tell new show elements.

    - 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
