Most of the new items for this year have been received and work has begun on the preparation of all the new elements. Computer work on the lighting sequencing is well underway and somewhat on schedule (it never really is ON schedule). Keep stopping by to see what progress we have made!
Most of this year’s additions have been ordered, the clipboard editing is well underway. Hope to have the clipboard and spreadsheets complete this labor day weekend so I can get going on the sequencing. A lot of work to do and a short time to get it all done!
Had to rewire a couple of controllers because they no longer require more than 15 amps total. The display will now draw less than 50 amps, where before LEDs, we were nearly at 100 amps. Got all the controllers hooked up to the network and powered up. Confirmed they’re all visible. Hooked up the mini arches (had a few strings with problems), and built up RGB mini tree number 7 (2 more to go).
It was a beautiful day today and we got a lot accomplished. Raised the mega tree hoop, the driveway arches, the new RGB pixel mini tree pole up as well as the hoop. All controllers are out. Will run power and network cables tomorrow.
Well, we have a lot of work to get started next week and what does the weather report show? Rain and more rain. Geez.
The weather is not cooperating as far as getting the lights off the house and getting the mega tree pole down. Won’t be too long though before it’s a distant memory until we begin planning for this year (probably in July).
We have had a couple of issues with the show this first week, but it looks like they are almost all worked out.
We’re looking forward to a great season this year. Hope you get a chance to come out and see the display. Be sure to leave a comment here or on our facebook page. Have a Happy Holiday! FYI- there is a link to a map on the ABOUT THE DISPLAY page.
