Light Up Ohio 2016
« on: March 05, 2016, 08:33:15 AM »
It's finally coming together.  The 10th Annual Light Up Ohio is well on it's way to be the biggest and best ever. 
We have just secured a venue to have our first ever, all day Education session on Friday May 13th  from 11am to 5pm.  We are excited to have Richard Renn teaching us the ins and outs of Xlights/Nutcracker, in an exciting presentation.  Bring your laptops because Richard will take us through, start to finish, setting up our own sequence in this exciting, ever changing, software. You will walk away with your very own sequence, that you created, and the knowledge to take your display to a higher level. 
Of course, this is just the beginning.  In the next couple of weeks, we will be announcing lots of events that will be going on at Light Up Ohio 2016.  Registration will be opening up this weekend, so watch for the announcement.  We hope to see you at Light Up Ohio 2016, May 13-14 in Westerville, Ohio.

     Everybody is different in the type of Holiday Display they prefer. There are Pixel Displays, Static Displays, Traditional Display, Elegant Display, RGB Displays, etc.  What type do you like?  We plan to talk about all of them at Light Up Ohio 2016. 
     One of the Holiday Displays that I have always liked is done by Jeff Phillips. To me, it is not the number of lights you have, but how you organize them.  One of the most  beautiful and organized displays I have ever seen, is Jeff's. Just by looking at it, you can tell he has spent a lot of time in planning, and his organization skills are second to none. Jeff will be doing a presentation at Light Up Ohio 2016, taking us from start to finish, and showing us how he plans and creates this beautiful display. 
     Come to Light Up Ohio on May 13-14 and meet Jeff, plus lots of other Lighting Enthusiasts.  REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW!!!!

Now that I have finally had a chance to unwind, and clear my head a little of all the information I learned, I would like to Thank some people on Light Up Ohio's behalf.  First and foremost, I would like to Thank the people that helped organize this event.  It's a small event, but it still takes a lot of organization to bring it all together.  A big Thank You goes out to Jeff Phillips, Joe Erdeljac, Jerry Plak, Richard Renn II, and all of the people who helped setup, clean-up, and spent their time helping others understand things.

     The backbone of this whole event is always the presenters.  The presentations this year were second to none, and I want to Thank each and every presenter for sharing their knowledge. Thank You Richard Renn II, Jerry Plak, David Jones, Clyde Lindsey and Dan Blickensderfer for volunteering your time to help others.  Also, I want to Thank all of the people that were spending time on the side, one on one, with various people helping them understand whatever confusion they were having.

     I also would like to Thank all of the Vendors.  There are too many to mention names here, but without you guys supporting us and supplying us with your great products, we could not pursue the hobby we love, and that is "Making Memories".

     I had a great time, and learned a lot.  It was great to see old friends and meet many new ones.  I hope everybody had a good experience and took away some valuable knowledge from the event.  Hope to see you next year!!!!!
