    so if your coming to the Sydney mini and looking at some www.extremelightingdisplays.com.au do not forget to place your order before the 14th of may so Troy can bring it down to save you freight.

    all orders must be placed on the www.extremelightingdisplays.com.au and then email troy advising you would like it for pickup at the Sydney mini.

    Not long now to the Sydney Mini

    Well the Donation from Ray Wu https://www.aliexpress.com/store/701799?spm=0.8937474.0.0.580f2e0ePWT7b0
    was delivered today and I would like to thank him for once again sponsoring this year's mini

    one thing I would like to see this year with the mini donations is that whatever you win. please message me a photo of it in your display or it getting set up. this way we can show those that have donated these items that they are being used in our displays and not just put aside.

    if you use any other supplier it would be great if you could ask them for sponsorship of the Sydney mini also.

    Hi Ben "Topics"
    I like the idea you suggested of having some people who have already "been there done that " guide those of us who have yet to venture into this hobby with a talk on some of the basics of design and benefits of choosing one setup over another either leaving behind or supplementing our existing standard shop bought lights. With changes in available equipment it could be "if I was starting again how would I do this differently"
    What can be achieved with the various types of pixel lights and configurations etc that will allow us to grow as needed/allowed viewing my house as a "blank canvas " where do I start, what do I need ? I acknowledge there is a lot of information in print or video however relating that to an actual application is sometimes a challenge.
    Bill
