    Default New to the forums, but this is my 5th year. (Denver, NC near CLT)

    Hello everyone,

    I can't believe I have never seen this place before. I lurk/post on planetchristmas and occasionally on the LOR forums, but I'm VERY excited to meet more people here in NC. This year we're swapping some incandescents to LED's, and added a spiral tree. I build a lot of my large structures out of PVC. I really want to get into RGB pixel control and see someone use Light Show Pro so I can start on next years plans. I am so mad at myself for not seeing this place sooner and missing those meetings that some of you hold that covers these topics.

    I hope to make some friends here.

    ~Adam

    No, I sure haven't. I don't even know of another light show here in Denver. I've been in the paper a few years running, so maybe it's something he and I can share the glory. I'll look him up. Thanks!

    Adam -

    Welcome here! Watch out for @Al in Raleigh - he'll tell you Real Men Use Steel, not PVC.

    How the heck did you get into the papers and not know about this place?

    Thanks for the warm welcomes. I haven't found the signature box yet, but I'm already finding all kinds of good info here. I may even go check out my Denver, neighbors setup in the next few days.

    Obligatory: ColemanLights.com

    Thanks again!

    I'll get some pictures soon. Mostly I followed a design like Loopy: http://www.loopychristmas.com/attach...e-20100814.pdf
    I modified it some to be slightly taller, allowed to follow a NOT level yard, and different topper. I also added a "mid-tree" hookup point so I have a mega tree inside a mega tree. I'll show you . You can actually see what I'm talking about sorta from my videos on my website.

    There are several folks in that area. Also check out polarchristmas here. They are on the east side of the lake, but not far.

    Welcome aboard!!!
