Being new to the hobby I'm not really sure what I want to see. I'm more of a sponge at this stage so anything would be great. It's been a while since I did anything with electronics/electrical but it is all coming back to me. Basic things like initial setup of props/designs, wiring and fixing of strings to xlights use and sequencing of displays. Anything would be great from my point of view.

Moving heads

Round table - legalitys - dealings with legal things and peoples expirences, eg issues with music and broadcasting, (if anyone has had issues), dealing with councils, police, neighbors etc, (i havent had any issues, but would be nice to hear others horror storys and how to be proactive and stay below the radar etc)

Yes, please - this would be great.

I know there has been beginner and advanced xLights sessions run in the past and for new people (like me) this would be great, however I also appreciate that it might be very repetitive for the people who have been through it multiple times, so perhaps a Q&A session where you bring some of your challenges and get some brainstorming on the best way to approach what is being attempted. This could even be submitted in advance of the event (possibly).

There was an xEssentials video from Boscoyo on coro prop building - I would be interested to see some more about the process. Bluey and Bingo might be good examples?

Just come along and ask lots of questions. Great opportunity to learn from very experienced people
