  • About my display
    Had a static display for the last few years that has grrew to about 35,000 lights in 2009.....now it's time to make them dance!
  1. What lights are you looking to sell, I am in need and not having luck finding anything.
  2. I am going to miss this one for a company function that I can't miss. Bummer, I was hoping that I would be able to pull off a double booked day. --Joe
  3. Jeff, Hope your tree is doing good today, we live in the Renton highlands area and I have been checking the up in the air items all night.
  4. When I set mine up I used Fred Meyer they have the same length and specs as the Lowe's brand (except for the periodic one that was wound too tight at the factory much like myself by the time thanksgiving gets here). My tree is a 21' tree so I hook them to the mast head and raise them straight up with a winch and they fold under the bottom ring about a foot.
  5. Everything is for the most part staged in the garage and started going out today. Biggest issue I am having is getting the sequencing done. Even with modifying other people sequences, I am still way behind. Oh well, if I wasn't doing this I would just be parked on the couch watching the idiot box.
  6. I use 24 channels, 3 color with eight channels of 3 strands for each color. Works out pretty well and not too hard to program most of the time.
  7. The bigger question....Is it truly ever an option to no be behind? I think if your ahead you must have forgotten something.
  8. My wife it the Halloween Guru at our house and I am trying to keep her at no more than 2 weeks......but I have a feeling that I am going to be overridden,
  9. I like the idea, but I couldn't find the time to teach a class if my life depended on it.
  10. It really depends on how your tree is made. I have a 21' tree and I purchased a top from Christmaslightshow.com and attached it to a hand winch, I attach all of my lights down low and then winch them up to the top then I Tie Wrap them to my hoop and bring the leftover back towards the base. I will see if I have any good pictures of it available to show you. The nice thing about using the winch system was when I had a string go out, I was able to bring down the top and replace that one string in about 5 minutes.
  11. I want to give a big thanks to all of the presenters yesterday and an even bigger one to Bill and his wonderful wife for the great accomodations. We couldn't asked for a better day to have the mini. I was very impressed with the amount of content we were able to cover and the depth we were able to get to. I also enjoyed putting a face to many of the name that I have seen. thanks guys. --Joe
  12. I'm in for both Friday night and Saturday. Looking forward to it.
  13. I'll see what I can find and bring it to the meet
  14. What size, type and color of wire are you looking for, I may be able to snag some scrap from work and bring it to the mini. Can't guarantee but it's worth a try. --Joe
