    Hi Everyone,
    I'm Anthony and going into my second year of lighting. By day I'm an IT analyst currently working for two different retail companies in their engineering and project management groups. The other waking hours are spent on this great hobby, as the wife allows of course. I actually started off in the hobby as a way to fulfill my wife's holiday spirit, and now I think I've become more spirited than her. I initially looked into a simple setup with LOR to just include some lights that could easily be changed for different holidays. Thats when I got sucked in, a simple house outline turned in to around 7000 channels last year using Xlights and Falcon controllers. This year I will be adding a few more props and diving into P10 panels but I really want to focus on the sequencing side to expand my knowledge there. You can check out my display @BoltonHoliday on Facebook.

    Looking forward to getting to know those in the area that share in the enjoyment from our displays.

    Welcome aboard. If you can't make the TASL meeting feel free to hit any of us Cary folks up with questions. Also we had a few monthly coffee meet ups last year and expect to do the same this year.

    Edit - sorry thought I read you were in Cary. Anyway you can probably hit ANY of us up and we would reply. We are a friendly group.

    We have a LOR migration day on March 4th and you may not need that one. But if you are planning to run a Falcon Pi Player with one or more Rasberry Pi computers, we have a Pi day planned for May 6th. I am double booked that day so I am not sure if I'll make it. We'll cross paths for the August 12th TASL (hopefully) ..
    Thanks,

    Hey Michael! Welcome! I checked out your facebook page and I love what you've done. I've been pretty quiet on here myself since the birth of all my kids these last few years. I'll catch up on FB to see if there's any time we can share ideas!

    Hi Anthony. It looks like we never heard back from you. You missed both 2017 TASL meetings. We also have a TASL tour during the week after Christmas. I hope you chime in one of these days.
