    Default Falcon Pi Day - Join Us. Learn How Simple it can be **** Check Post 1 for Updates

    Time to set the date and other preferences. Please refer back to THIS POST for plans and decisions. Be sure to post your preferences so we know who is coming.

    Sean Meighan @smeighan will join us around 11am (E.S.T.) for an xLights talk.

    This meeting is for anyone and everyone who are curious about running your show with one or more Pi computers. The most recent Pi computer is $5 but those are in short supply right now (everybody wants them)! For hardware planning in advance of the meeting, refer to this post: Converting from LOR <or most anything> to Falcon Pi

    @Tripplett Joe Tripp will lead the group discussion. Joe recommends that everyone start with a Rasberry Pi 2. The 8GB CanaKit on Amazon is the simplest start.

    Amazon.com: CanaKit Raspberry Pi 2 Complete Starter Kit (9-Items): Computers & Accessories

    DATE: March 5th. Please post your preferences ****************

    LOCATION: Cary Park Club 5353 Cary Glen Blvd, Cary, NC 27519
    This is @scottmcl Scott McLellan's housing area Pool House. It's very comfortable, plenty of room, and it has a bar and kitchen.

    HOURS: 10am to 3pm would work .. we could go longer if needed.

    LUNCH: Scott has suggested that everyone bring $5 to pick in for Pizza. This will be more efficient with our time. We'll try to get a range of toppings for everyone. Bring your own beverages, snacks, etc. Sharing is OK.

    I cannot do the 20th or 27th. I hope we can either do it quicker or wait until March. (Though not 19 March.) Those weekends are owned by Scouts and I can't get out of those right now.

    Apologies for being the "stinker" on the date...

    We could try Feb 13th or March 5th. I'll update Post number 1 (below) .. What about your room availability ?

    I'm not sure if my other responsibilities have events scheduled for either date; off the top of my head, I don't think so. I'll try to make it.

    I probably can't do Feb 13th. Kids are out of school and we are considering going skiing that weekend. Plus it's Valentines weekend <3
    I would be open to hosting if it is warm enough to do most of it outside. I have a huge driveway. I could host about 12-15 inside in my sunroom area but much more than that would be difficult.

    I would much rather prefer March 5th. Valentines weekend is going to be a hard one to swing.

    I have requested the space for 05 Mar as that seems to be the consensus. I'll let you know in two business days what they say!!!

    I updated Post 1 showing the Pool House. If you get approval, please send me the address so I can list it on Post 1. I am showing the hours to be 10 to 3 .. but we could go longer if we're not through it all.

    We need someone to contact Sean Meighan to see what we can set up for him to chat with us. He has a conference system but we will need Internet and would be nice if we can get onto a big screen. Can anyone provide Internet for Sean's segment ?
    Thanks,

    Ok, we got the room for that date. I requested 8-5 so that gets us some setup time, too. I have to open it to the neighborhood to make it free. I'll write a quick blurb for them and say that they have to read about falcon player before coming. And maybe even come to the 06 Feb session, too!!

    Also, the space should have Internet, but I'll validate that. I can also setup a google hangout if Sean can manage that way. I have cameras and stuff that we could use if needed. Though I want to learn more than play "video setup guy" during the session...

    No problem with that. Please post the address for me .

    Is everyone OK with a 10am start time ? I was giving some extra time for those traveling.
