Hello everyone.

I've had a lot of inquiries as to when registration will open for Chicago. We plan to have the website up and running for registration on or before April 1.

I know this is going to be a wonderful event, the instructors are coming in from all over the U.S. and we have some great things planned for the weekend.

As we did in 2008, we plan to have another Lab. This time, it will be an LED snowflake, taught by Val Piechur and Gary Camphouse.

Lab content:

We will explain and show you how to attach a power cord to LED rope light and learn the difference between an Incandescent power cord and an LED power cord.

Anyone purchasing the kits for this class will learn how to attach the rope light to a nice powder coated 21

Lab content:

We will explain and show you how to attach a power cord to LED rope light and learn the difference between an Incandescent power cord and an LED power cord.

Anyone purchasing the kits for this class will learn how to attach the rope light to a nice powder coated 21” Snowflake frame and finish this project so that you have a LED lit Snowflake to take home with you.

You will have the choice of using pure white or warm white LED rope light. If you plan on taking this class, please contact Carrie or Valerie by PM since quantities will be limited.

The price for the class kit is $35.00 and includes everything you will need to complete your snowflake. This is a picture/example of what the snowflake looks like.

Frank and I will take care of the beer distribution during certain class events...There maybe some others from the brat pack who might ask for this honor, but I would not put them in a position of authority...

I'm just sayin'...

To keep everyone's enthusiasm up (adult refreshments are one thing..) I want to let everyone know that if you are present at the Chicagoland Regional, we will be doing a drawing and giving away a set of Snowfall lights. Many thanks to Val!

Ed, last I heard he was up in Lake Forest..not far from me at all. He cut down all the trees on his property (LF is an old monied estated area)..and made everyone in the community furious. :)

He will not be attending the mini..I value my two Maple trees!;)

Carrie, Will one be able to access the web cam feed from the internet. Just curious for those who can not attend. I would sure love to be able to see your Blow Mold Restoration and Painting Class.

No way I can attend, but would be nice to be able to web cam it.

Chuck, the plan is to do a webcam feed..but I'm not sure of the details yet. If I do anything with restoration, I will make sure that the feed picks it up. Maybe I'll get the old blow torch out and do some plastic welding afterall. I'm glad you're interested..so if we can accommodate this, we sure will.

Thanks Carrie--That would be great stuff to see for sure.

Do you have the link for the Chicagoland web site up yet.

I am presuming that the web feed will be linked on there with times for different classes?

Chuck, we'll be launching the website any time now. There's been a slight delay..I will be posting a schedule on there further down the road once we get closer. Thanks again for your interest and I'm sorry you can't join us.

i wonder if anyone would like to see how the spiraling tree is built? i live pretty close to there, about 80 miles.

That's not far at all! You should plan on coming up! I'm sure people would be interested in seeing how you build your tree. If you send me a PM with the specifics about it, I can probably slot in some time for this. Let me know!

Scott,

I'm glad to see you back on PC and congrats on winning the LOR contest. Living that close to Chicago you have no excuse, you have to attend.

There are people coming from all over the country and I am driving in from Buffalo, NY . I attended a mini for the first time last year and met a bunch of great people that I now consider friends, I hope to see you there.

Hey, I will throw out the challenge. I am coming from Seattle. That's farther than 80 miles. I for one would love to see this up close. AND, to prove not all of us on this site are jerks.
