    I would prefer a Monday or Thursday night. Weekends are ok, too, depending on what is going on...

    I am pretty flexible on dates. Maybe we wait about a week so people can get their plans on paper ? I recall last year a bunch were not ready in time, so it's good that we're driving this sooner. There's a lot of money to be saved ..

    Might know of a new place for meetings... Not sure what the rental rates are yet, but brand-new facility..

    Also.. As I'm just getting into the RasPi game as well (already built a Stratux for my flying stuff), I've been interested in using one for my light show stuff.. Got a Zero. Where can I find more information on controlling my shows?

    Here is a link to the Seasonal Entertainment Presale PDF file with prices. They have one in January with June delivery and another in Feb with Sept delivery. They offer a lot of stuff these days. But I don't think they offer free shipping with large orders.

    Default Re: 2016 Group Buy Information

    What happened to the plan to meet for a group buy before the end of January ? Who is leading this meeting ?

    I am not ordering much, since I am doing custom pixels with Ray Wu, but I do need 40 or 50 standard LED strings. I'll participate if anyone is stepping up to lead.

    I've got too much going on right now to plan a meeting, but I am ordering about 6 cases of lights from Holiday-Light-Express, and a few items from DIYLEDExpress by the end of January. That's about it for me.

    Default Re: 2016 Group Buy Information

    I guess if anyone has plans for lights from Holiday Light Express, then contact Sam. His 6 cases should easily be in the free shipping range. I have checked every other site that I know of .. and none of them can match HLE ..

    Sam, if it's ok .. I may call you to add in an order .. I need a case (24 pcs) of M6 100-bulb Warm White, plus 17pcs of 70-bulb C6 Warm White. Possibly something else but not sure yet.
    Thanks,

    I know it's late notice. Can anyone meet today at 10 am at the Panera at Crossroads? Same complex as BJs. Thoughts?

    Default 2016 Group Buy Information

    Im not sure I'll want anything but I could meet at 10 to see what is out there. I want some new icicles but I want pixels. I need some led rectifiers too. Maybe some (spt2?) wire and plugs would be nice.

    That's at least two people... I sent an email to the locals to see if they can make it as well. We'll see what happens today.
