    Place: Swift Creek Community Center

    Raleigh NC, 27606

    This is our 2nd of three Saturday meetings for 2014. Also be sure to keep your calendar open for August 23rd. We may also set a date for a group workshop project depending on interest.

    During our previous TASL meeting we discussed that we would like to continue with learning topics in the morning, with custom lighting effects and live demos in the afternoon. Please let us know what you will bring or what you would like to teach. The agenda will be growing and changing so check back often. Also feel free to send your suggestions. We want to plan a mix of topics covering the basics for our newer members, as well as pixel related topics and other common interest topics.

    AGENDA Candidates (not in presentation order). We'll organize the times later:

    Agenda items for May 3rd:

    8:30 - 10am Setup and Socializing. Come early for meet and greet.

    10 - 11am First Year OverView and Best Practices - Scott McLellan

    12am - 1pm Pot Luck LUNCH (everyone bring something to share). Check the list, the post what you will bring.

    1 - 2pm Share your latest effects from this past year. Bring something to display and/or demo.
    • Scott McLellan - LOR CCBs

    4 - 5pm Pack Up, Fold the Chairs and Tables, Sweep the floor

    I will arrive to open the hall between 8:00am and 8:30am for unloading/setup. We'll have about 90 minutes to mingle and get set up. Swing in early for coffee .. Presentations will begin by 10am. We need to end the meeting by around 4pm to begin teardown, and cleanup the hall. By the rules of our rental agreement we need to leave by 5pm in case there is a 5pm renter for the evening.

    @scottmcl is bringing Dunkin Donuts coffee and 2 dozen donuts <yum> !

    This is a POT LUCK LUNCH meeting. Please let us know what you will bring to share. Be sure to check what others are bringing so we can get a range of main dishes, side dishes and deserts.

    I am working on Nametags and should have them for this meeting. I bought some blank tags with TASL funds .. $16 including supplies from the Feb 22nd meeting.

    Be sure to bring your own drinks for the day. There is plenty of room for coolers and a full refrigerator in the kitchen. The kitchen also has a full size stove with oven and a large microwave. There's lots time for baking or reheating before lunch !

    This meeting is open to anyone who would like to participate, or just listen in for their first time. It is a good time for new members to sign up to be a TASL member for 2014. You do not have to be a TASL member to attend a TASL meeting. Feel free to drive in from another area to join us. If you are thinking about creating your first holiday show with synchronized lights and music, you can join a TASL meeting to learn more about how its done. Come on out and join us!

    We have been trying to keep a tradition going of members selling or trading lights and accessories at the TASL meetings. Please post what you will bring and we will list it here. We'll hold an informal Christmas Garage sale on designated tables throughout the day. Bring some cash if you are looking to expand .. there could be some real nice deals !

    Contact anyone from the TASL Steering Committee for more information:

    Great Joe. I look forward to meeting you, unless we can meet up sooner for coffee or something ..

    Glad you can make it again. Let me know what progress you have made on the controllers we worked on last time.

    No topics yet. I asked Mark to think about what he might want to present. Since we have a lot of new people, Mark's demo overview of pixels is always nice. I think a Nutcracker demo night be neat if we could make it work live with multiple strips or strings. Perhaps Mike @mpurser could give the demo? Mike/Sam/Anyone, any ideas what pixels we could use for this ? I thought about my small pixel strip tree with the RGB ornaments at the end of the strips, but I would need someone to help me lift it off the wall. It's currently hanging on pegboard and too heavy for me alone. Or we could just take 8 strings and lay them out in a tree fashion. The trick is getting the channels to match the Nutcracker assignments. I believe Xlights will run in real time if you have a controller hooked up and defined in Xlights....
    Thanks,

    BUMP !

    I updated the agenda to include an RGB Flood demo. In case some of you have been thinking about them and want to contrast your choices. If any of you have the new LOR RGB Flood, or any other not listed, please reply (and bring one).

    We're also looking for various custom designed lighting effects for this meeting. Let us know what you can bring. Being able to demonstrate it LIVE would be even better.
