I can't July 27, any of the August dates work for me.

(I assume I'm one of the people from Denver that are included in that count!  LOL.)

Anyone have any objections to August 31 as the date of the meeting. This day seems to be good for us in Co Springs.

It Looks like Aug 31 will work for the most folks.

grep.ca says he can host. Greg can you confirm?
Backup, Steve (mms) thinks he can reserve a conference room at the radio station he works at.

I was thinking 10am to 5pm on Aug 31? We have people driving down from Fort Collins and up from Colorado springs.

What would you like to see discussed? I will give a talk on the latest Nutcracker and explain the new library of marked up songs from audacity.

Other subjects?

thanks

A demo of the Falcon Pi Player may be neat.

I'd like to see a demo of Vixen 3 and/or HLS.

Maybe a show and tell new show elements.

i can almost guarantee there will be a pi player, fpd and falcon-16 demo

I can reach out to one of the Vixen 3 developers. We need a venue that has wifi so we can have them present via teamviewer

Derek backus did the Nutcracker port.

I dont know if anyone of us coming uses HLS.

3rd backup is Sean to get conference room at St Andrew church, Highlands Ranch.

 We have people driving down from Fort Collins and up from Colorado springs.

Some suggestions for an agenda

Brian wrote:
- If enough people have the falcon16, perhaps David can talk about setup etc.
- Swap meet if people have stuff to sell or trade.
- Show and tell. I thought this was one of the best parts down in the COS as well as the recent academy in TX.
- setting up rgb / universes to work in LOR3
- how Sean ran show only using nutcracker
- Basics of using vixen 3. Someone in the metro used it exclusively, although I don't remember who.

sean wrote:
- i will demonstrate how to share nutcracker sequences. ill bring 20 already done and share them
- will bring my 20x120 flex strips and set them up to demo xlights
Greg write:
- I have a lot of 5 meter WS2811 strips 12VDC still brand new in the bags not opened that I want to sell from Ray Wu.  They are just a few     weeks old.
- I also would like to set up a 'swap meet' of Christmas light items that we all could buy/sell/trade. Bring all your unused or un-needed christmas light stuff and let's see if we can trade.
-I'm currently needing 5V WS2811 strips as my requirements for my megatree changed in mid build.


Thanks all
