2017 PacNW CLAP Meeting
« on: January 04, 2017, 08:19:50 PM »
The Season is barely a memory at this point, but we wanted to get notice out as early as possible. This event is open to all who are interested, and is still one of the last free "minis" out there
CLAP will be Saturday April 29th. Put it on your calendars. Our usual first Sat of May did not work for our gracious host, Nancy.
Yes its still 3+ months away, but if you know you want to attend, let us know. We understand if plans change down the road, we are just trying to get an rough idea of how many we may have
If there is a aubject you want to tackle and teach, let us know. Its great that the last few years, we have been getting different individuals who wanted to present
If there is a subject you want to know more about, let us know so we can attempt to cover it in the agenda.
One subject we talked about is using a 3D printer. Several of our members have had them now and using them during set up.
More updates to follow.

I would like to attend.
First timer for this group, I think.
I went to a meetup 2 or 3 years ago and presented on corollary elements but I don't think it was this group.


I have it on calendar.

Hey Guys, for some reason I did not get email notices of responses.


I have you all down as attending


TractorMike, what is Corollary Elements? We are looking for subject matter for this meeting.


Any of you have any pressing areas of interest?

TM21, Coro, we can do easily. Let me check with Wirekat. He has been presenting that subject at Christmas Expo the past 2 years and may turn it over to one of our other PNW crazies to teach at CE this summer. Let me check.

NW CLAPPERS:[/size][/color]Some of you may or may not be aware that on Oct 6th 2016, we lost one of our own, Rex Gaus. Besides Jim Winder, Rex was the member who usually drove up on a motorcycle, many times with his daughter or his wife Vanesa in tow. Rex and Vanesa were in attendance last year. There is a GoFundMe set up for his family, as his wife is disabled and not able to work. They are having a Memorial for Rex on Sat April 1stfrom 5-9pm. That would have been his and Vanesas 25thwedding anniversary.The family wanted to keep it light, and it will be held at Angelos Restaurant in Bellevue, WA. 1830 130th Ave NEWirekat and I are planning on attending. If you want to join us, a friend of Rex is taking RSVPs - erikstr@twodads.com-------------------------------------The agenda for CLAP 2017 is still being worked out, and we should have an update in a week or so. However, one of our members is working on a group buy. This info is time sensitive and volume dependent.

Jerry, (Jerry72, Bowhunter3125), has the opportunity to get the Really Big Lights for $24 bucks a box (5 bulbs) delivered. He can arrange to bring them to CLAP at the end of April, or can make other arrangements to get them to you should you not be able to attend CLAP.

These are really cool to convert to RGB. I had 32 of them in my Road Tree this year and they were a huge hit with the visitors. I have more to make, and plan 48 in that tree next year (so I already have mine in hand)

Jerry has put a drop dead date of April 2nd to get the order in so they will be here in time for CLAP. There is also a minimum of 36 boxes that needs to be ordered to make this happen. If you are interested or want more details, get with Jerry directly
bowhunter3125@gmail.com


The agenda has yet to be finalized, however, we are still looking to get an idea for head count. If you have NOT already RSVPd, please do so. We are working with Nancy on this, as we may move the venue this year. This has not been determined yet. Last year we grew about as big as we can go in Bills shop. Nancy was concerned that if we grow any more... But fear not, if we do change venues it will be just as scenic, it is not far from Nancys (if you have already made hotel arrangements), and it still has a connection to Bill. More as we get into April.

If you have not already signed up for our PacNW CLAP Facebook group go join:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/242224906166484/

This is a closed group to those whom have attended a CLAP meeting.

More info to come.[/b][/i]

I plan to come out again this year. I'm certainly interested learning more about 3D printing.

I'd like to attend. This is my first year building a display and I'm looking forward to meeting and learning from other Christmas light enthusiasts.
