Hey Mark!

Any one of the middle three weekends in October would be great with me, depending on your schedule of course. Sundays are better for me because my daughter has all sorts of activities on Saturday but those only go until noon.

I'll be there just give me date and time lol.. Of course once you figured it out first ;-)

I'm not sure what my October calendar looks like yet, but so far it's pretty open. I'd prefer a Saturday (anytime) or Sunday afternoon. I'm part of the music ministries team at church and we're back into full swing as of last Sunday.

I am up for a mini depending on the date in October?

There are a few other Minnesota lighting people that would attend but just do note monitor this page/forum, so if you do have a mini it is wise to make an announcement on the other forums.

I'm seriously envious of you guys who can afford to blow off a full day of daylight during prime light-stringing time in late October to get together to talk about stringing lights. Count me in for a meeting almost any time during the summer but not in late October.

That’s why you host… Anyone who show’s up “Early” will be put to work. :)

...Due to kids who roam the streets late at night on Oct 31, I won't be putting much out until after November 1st.

I'm kind of with George. I remember that Tim had a mini at his house last fall. I might have been able to make it, but in the end I asked myself -- Okay I can Talk about Christmas lights or I can Do Christmas lights. I'm not saying that I'm a no yet, it is just a busy time of the year for me. As it is I feel bad when I have to take a day for leaves rather than lights. One thing I learned at the Chicago mini is that some people, like Therberg, work really hard at making their displays go up quickly. For example, while I'm putting up individual strings of lights to outline the house, he has pre-built racks of lights that he just carries up and snaps on. I really need to work at making my set-up / tear-down quicker.

I don't start setup until November, with very rare exceptions where I'm feeling motivated and start stringing up trees.

I try to make it so that nobody realizes anything is set up (with the possible exception of icicle lights) until mid-November.

I'm starting to learn that I like setting up wearing just a long sleeve shirt and not a jacket and gloves. I don't like looking up and hanging lights in trees while it's raining or snowing. I don't like climbing a ladder to the second story while there is snow or ice on the ground. I don't like trouble shooting controllers when I can't feel anything with my fingers.

Setting up in October sounds better every year. One of these years I'll probably actually do it.:)
