    Default OFFICIAL TASL Meeting August 22, 2015 9am till 5pm <Details in Post #1>

    Announcing the FINAL meeting in 2015 for the Triangle Area Synchronized Lighting <TASL> group.

    Date and Time: Saturday August 22, 2015 9am - 5pm

    Place: Swift Creek Community Center
    6221 Yates Mill Pond Rd
    Raleigh NC, 27606

    This is our 3rd of three Saturday meetings for 2015. There could be additional training meetings or workshops, depending on TASL members willing to step forward and coordinate them.

    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.

    A live feed online will be available for the meeting. Look up TASL RDU in Google.

    Agenda items for August 22nd:

    8:00 - 9:00am Setup and socializing. Come early for meet and greet. PLEASE EVERYONE try to arrive by 9am !

    9:00 - 9:30am INTRODUCTIONS - 30 mins

    11:00 - Noon Overview of "Using Nutcracker with LOR" - Mike Purser ..

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

    1:00 - 2:00pm DIY RGB Spot Lights Build your own High power pixel or DMX RGB Spots and Save $$ - Rob Gasiorowski

    2:00 - 3pm Share your past projects. Bring something to display and/or demo.

    3:00 - 4:00pm OPEN <send your ideas>
    4:00 - 4:15pm TASL Business - Open TASL Discussion - Denny

    • Discuss how many meetings we want for 2016 (2 or 3)?
    • When do we want the 2016 meetings (what Months)?
    • Bank Balance Report
    • Are we ready to set one or more dates for a group workshop ?
    • Do we want any FAall training clasees this year, and for which software/hardware are you looking for training.

    4:15 - 5pm Pack Up, Fold the Chairs and Tables, Sweep the floor

    I will arrive to open the hall betwee 8:00am and 8:15am for unloading and setup. We'll use the first hour to mingle and get set up. Swing in early for coffee .. Introductions starting 9:00am and Presentations will begin by 9:30am. We need to end the formal presentations around 4:15pm to begin teardown, and cleanup the hall. By the rules of our rental agreement we need to leave by 5pm. Many times they have another renter coming in after 5pm.

    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 can supply a Keurig machine to make coffee. And I can bring some K-cups. We could use a volunteer to bring cups and creamer. Also breakfast snacks are nice to have.

    I will bring the nametags form the last meeting. A handful of you did not leave your nametags from the last meeting, so please remember to bring them with you.

    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 2016. But you do not have to be a TASL member to attend a TASL meeting. 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! If you are bringing friends or other family members, please make sure you post their names when you acknowledge your attendance.

    We always have tables available for an informal Christmas Garage sale throughout the day. Bring cash if you are looking for deals. Bring your items to sell or trade. There are always some real nice deals !

    Denny,

    I have the Person County Beekeepers Association coming out to the farm on August 22nd and to my disappointment, will not be able to make this meeting.

    Too many conflicts...

    Thanks for all you do...
    Tom

    I should be there.... Not sure the food yet.

    I will also likey be bringing some "swap meet" items. At this point, it looks like i will be replacing 75%+ of my incan lights from last year. SO, i may have a BUNCH of incan items to swap.
