Academy IIX Registration is Open!
« on: September 05, 2015, 03:06:57 PM »
Since 2008 Lone Star Holidays has presented the Holiday Academy, a one-of-a-kind event for holiday enthusiasts. Every year the Academy runs for multiple days of learning, socializing, sharing, and growing. With dozens of classes held in multiple rooms, every attendee has the opportunity to enhance their holiday knowledge, regardless of experience level.

The Academy has seen Christmas, Halloween and even Fourth of July make their way into the curriculum. Because of our typical mid-to-late summer event timeframe weve had attendees tell us that the Halloween topics are too late in the year to benefit home haunters. And when the Academy has been held after the Fourth of July (as it is most years) any firework information has to wait for almost a full year to be utilized. Balancing our class offerings among holidays is always a challenge, no matter how hard we work. Finally, after 8 years, we feel like were ready to meet that challenge head on

For the first time, Lone Star Holidays is proud to announce that we will be holding not one, but TWO Academies in 2016!

The first, Holiday Academy IIX, is being held on April 2 & 3 and will focus on several key areas (yes the "IIX" is intentional!):
   Halloween-centric topics including make-up, costuming, props, character development and many others.
   Firework related sessions including display set-up, musical synchronization, automatic firing and safety.
   DIY/RGB sessions that include some traditional classes together with more one-on-one focus, hands-on sessions.
   Software solutions like Light-O-Rama, xLights, Nutcracker, Audacity, Zara Radio, Audacity and more.

We feel that by focusing on these areas we can best serve our attendees who want to learn about Halloween, discover fireworks AND continue working with platforms that can be used with ALL of the holidays, Christmas included.

We will have more details about Academy 9 next year (plan for a late summer date). For now, registration is open for Academy IIX and your registration includes:
   Admittance to all Academy classes
   Free soft drinks, water and coffee
   Lunch on both Saturday and Sunday
   An exclusive Academy IIX t-shirt

Registration is only $50 and is limited to 150 attendees. We opened registration and already have over 2 dozen people registered! Were doing something unique and special next year- Dont miss out on this one!
