    I think at this stage of the year, watching your displays or someone elses Im sure we all have new ideas poping up for next years display.

    Just wondering what people are thinking to do for next year , Wether its just adding some more arches or just going completely nuts with RGB.

    Im planning 3 more arches , a mega arch possibly with a fan and 2 more colours on the tree as well as a Matrix at this stage.

    Mike, where abounds are you? I've seen David and Tabor's displays but can't find yours.
    Next year will be my first synchronised display and plan on making a long multistage light bar, mega tree and some smaller trees.

    I need to fill up my lawn with mini trees or coro stars next year. I also need to plan better to have the street oneway as this is working great now that i have done it.

    I will be getting 4 100 count RGB strings for my mini trees and whatever it takes to run them and I will do this early in the year so I have plenty of time to play and learn.

    Once the Minister for Finance sees how wonderful they are I might be allowed to replace some of my 240V rope light with RGB as well.
