This year we will have the mini again at CNC Design in Abbotsford. We want to cater for members of all ages and experiences so no matter if you are a newbie or a veteran please come along and enjoy two days of information and discussion sessions on what is new in Christmas Lighting. More importantly get to know other ACL members a passion for this hobby.

We will have this in May so you have lots of time think about and organise new lighting goodies for this Christmas. The Melbourne Mini is one of the feature events for the ACL year. This year we will have a range of presentations on topics such as lighting software, new types of lights and how to put this all together for your display. In the past few years we have had 20-30 people attend.

PRIZES WILL INCLUDE GOODIES FROM Minleon, RAY WU, AAH, STELLASCAPES AND MORE!

NOTE Door prize will include LSP Advanced Version. ACL members who attend are also eligible for a special deal from Minleon - Buy LSP advanced and get LSP PRO for the same price. (To be eligible you must attend the mini and place an order within 24 Hours of completion.)
