    !!!!! FINALLY !!!!!!!

    I can announce that the Sydney Mini is going ahead on the 3rd and 4th of June In the Newcastle CBD Starting at 9:30am.

    Address of the event will be PM'd to you once you've registered.

    It's in the heart of Newcastle so there is plenty of cafes and pubs to grab lunch on both days. Keith will be giving a Xlights tutorial on the latest release over the weekend and I'll have props on hand to show setups etc. If you'd like to learn anything new for your setup, by all means place it in this thread so we can help you with whatever it is.

    Right now Id like to see a few people presenting whatever they wish to show us. Could be anything from waterproofing to power injection, Falcon to LOR etc. If it's your first year out, come along and learn from the guys who have been doing this for years. Every question will be answered no matter how trivial.

    We have a few guys staying in Newcastle overnight, So if your looking for accommodation try https://secure.accorhotels.com/stor...=&hotelCode=3236&domainId=www.accorhotels.com

    I'm definitely interested in going for at least one day. I didn't make it to last year's mini, so was pretty disappointed to see that this year's was cancelled. This would be my first year at a controlled display, so I have plenty of questions. As this year is a micro micro mini, I don't want to take up too much of all your time with questions. Is this micro good for beginners or for the more advanced?

    Thanks Troy, I won't vote as I'm biased. I'm happy with either location, but one will obviously be easier for me. :)

    from the other thread, here's a few topics to get us started. I gather you want the topics here now?

    • How to get the most out of your Falcon controller
    • How to use distribution boards with the Falcon controller
    • Going the distance:
      • Power Injection
      • Data Injection (null pixel options)
      • WiFi Pixel controllers
    • Panel (P10,P6,P4) matrix yes or no?
      • Mine's bigger than yours - the right size for the job
      • Wiring
      • Hardware and putting it all together
    • All things xLights and xSchedule
    • How to overcome Pythagoras's theorem when building a flat pixel tree [​IMG]

    In previous years before the Sydney mini was at the Fish markets it used to be held at the Hawksbury motor boat club near Windsor that you organised a few times, is this a possible option?

    Just wandering if a decision has been made as to were the mini will be. If at Swansea I do have a small water urn I can bring up.

    Bit late to the party here, but I voted for CBD - only because it's closer to me. Happy with either venue.
