    Welcome to ACL Wade.
    You can make your boss happy this year if you put in some effort. Have a read, come and have a chat and post any questions you have. Most of us don't bite.

    G'day Wade, welcome to ACL. You've come to the right place. I'm very new to the scene and I have found everybody here very friendly, super talented and very, very helpful. Strap in and enjoy your ride. The manual here is a great place to start

    Yeah found the manual a couple of days ago and have been reading it like a magazine since printing it last night.
    I'm trying to work out where I should start designing and building my display, Can't go off previous years displays as only brought the house in December last year, so last year was the first year I hadn't put out my normal lights and inflatables.
    Thinking this year just to add into existing stuff that I have is to make some leaping arches along my front fence, and maybe something on the roof.
    Cheers Wade

    Welcome to ACL. I agree that you can make it this year if you put a bit of time in. I made a must stop show last year with 48channels. It's definitely achievable.. And I started last year in September so you would have a head start on what I got last year. Feel free to ask all the questions you need to get a must see show this year.. All are friendly and willing to help out in anyway.

    To my knowledge, AAH is the only one that does bite. :D
    Although a rookie, living close to ɟɐsʇǝppʎ will have some advantages. :D :D
    Everyone here is very friendly, so ask away with posts or for instant assistance ask in chat.
    There are no dumb or silly questions here.

    FYI: Joining these forums and entering the chat room can give you CLAP!!! :D
