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.

Wade,

Welcome to ACL, your located 5 minutes up the road from me as im in Albion Park so feel free to get in contact with me and you can pop around and I could show you a few things and help you get started. Great to see someone close getting into it and im sure you can be one of the goto houses in the Illawarra this year.

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
