    Sounds good to me.

    I'll bring all three strobes.

    If you will bring your Rainbows (I haven't built mine yet) and I think Mark was bringing his Mighty Mini. (or Al, Walter and Denny have also finshed theirs I think)

    If Bill Buehler comes again this year, maybe he could bring the Aether he built as a beta build for RJ. I would love to see one of those in person.

    Just a note that I am still planning to come. Have not registered since I can't get my spouse to commit to return yet. May also have two other folks traveling with us.

    Yes, I second the motion for a session comparing Mighty Mini, Vflood and Rainbow. Mark had his MMs at the last TASL mini (or whatever that was called). I could bring my Mighty Minis if needed ..
    Thanks,

    I'll be bringing my mini's, as well as an assortment of DIY controllers, and my LED strip stars.

    Carl,
    I have a presentation on DIY controllers/protocols that I did at the TASL meeting that I've updated. It talks about the different protocols and compares and contrasts how they can work together/apart. Should take about 30-40 minutes....
    Mark

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    Is everyone staying at the host hotel? If I book now I can get a $20 Target giftcard. Not sure if I should just book Friday night or should book Sat night too.
