  • About my display
    Just a couple of light-strings on our modest home.Nothing much.

    Started using LOR for 2009 display.
    Built a smaller version of a mega tree.(More like a "medium tree.")Added arches,fans,mini trees and firesticks.Very modest.

    A couple of people stopped by at first and it got a little busier as more people heard about it.

    I think the planning and setting up part is a lot of fun.Probably going to add a couple more strings and channels for 2010.

    2010 I added a couple more channels and light strings.A couple of cars a night stopped by to enjoy it.Kids enjoy it the most.Makes it all worth-while.
    It has gotten a little busier than last year.

  1. Hi there fellow Rhodies.. Been at it for a couple of years now with a small display.Just a couple of light strings and a couple of channels to help make the neighborhood look festive. Owen
  2. it all depends on how smooth you want the chase to look.The more channels you have the smoother it's going to look.My first year I did 6 channels on 20' arch.The 2nd year I had 6 channels on 10' arches.Looked much smoother. You could improve the smoothness by using the fade up and fade down on the channels imo.
  3. BHays had a thread here but it's lost during the various site upgrades.Here is a link to the pictures of his fireworks project: http://www.facebook....78690742&type=1

  7. http://www.mobileblackbox.com/content/view/42/76/ This is what I used..great little unit.
  8. You cannot claim the money you collect because it's someone else's money.You are merely the person who collects the money and pass it on to the charity.Now if you donated money out of your own pocket, then you can claim that.This is from an IRS guy that I know.
  9. You have to contact the charity first to get their permission/fill out some paperwork and you should be ready to go.They are all more than happy to have you collect donations on their behalf.
  10. All power to you..you have to know your visitors/ IMO..Personally I like the music but I wouldn't use it in my display.I .
  11. I like to leave the house and go far away...Just sick of seeing cars lined up in front of my house night after night after night.It's like Ground Hog Day. It was fun at first, but it has gotten really old.
  12. Chuck Downs has several trees waving(51 sec mark) and it looks spectacular.He uses a lift to wrap his trees.
  13. Ordered mine from the same place(great folks over there) and received it-great little invention
