    Hi all,

    I have a confession, my name is John and I have had CLAP since I was 12. I was so excited when I came across a group of people who shared the same condition. I am now 30 and the condition has only become more intense.
    I have been a member of this website for a number of years but stayed in the shadows reading and learning.
    I first dabbled in controllable lights in 2014 with a 16 channel Light O Rama 240v controller. I now have 2 Light O Rama 16 channel controllers. I combine my animated lights with static lights as part of my show and this year I was judged as the Kingaroy Urban champion. I have attached a picture of my lights in the interlude between shows where all my lights are on.

    This year I have plans to get into pixels. I have a Falcon F16V2 from a previous bulk buy last year and a Raspberry Pi. All I need now is to decide on my layout and order the lights and power supplies.

    I have registered for the QLD mini this year and I hope to get a little more active on this site. It is a credit to this community that it is so welcoming to everybody and members are so willing to help each other out.

    I look forward to meeting other members at the Mini this year.

    Cheers, John

    Welcome Jon, although I'm not real active on this forum, I will say the people on here a real helpful and understanding of new members.
    I'm also in Kingaroy and planning on going to the mini. I would like to chat with you more about heading down there if that's ok?
