December 11th, 2011

Yesterday I finished up Jingle Bells Techno sequence.  Looks pretty good.

Show is Ready!!!!

November 23rd, 2011

After a busy day of completing power and data cabling, the show is complete and will start on the 24th as scheduled.  Everything is the same from last year, but I plan to add some new songs, drop some old ones and add some new items gradually.

Nearing Completion

November 22nd, 2011

Today was spent hooking up 120 of the 192 channels.  Tomorrow we should finish the remainder of the channels and power.  Hoping to test in the evening.

Getting Ready for This Year

November 21st, 2011

Today I was able to get all lights out and most everything set up in the yard.  Tomorrow I will start hooking up the data and electrical if it is not raining.  As of now the show looks to be able to start on time this Thursday.

I have not added anything new this year but hope to increase my arch count by one and add a new song.

Show Is Coming To An End

December 28th, 2010

Well if you haven’t gotten out to see the lights try to get out before Saturday.  Friday evening will be the last night for the show this year.  It looks to be good weather, so I will take advantage of it to take the display down.

Shooting Video

December 9th, 2010

Well, trying to get some pictures and video but it is not so easy.  Need to find someone that has a nice digital video recorder to do this for me.

Show is Ready

November 26th, 2010

Well, got the last items completed today.  Fixed the relay board for the roof lights and the strobes.  Reloaded the firmware on the controller boards to fix the dimming problems, should make for a better transition on the lights.  Wrapped the columns and fixed the one mini tree that didn’t light last night.

Almost Ready

November 25th, 2010

The show is almost ready.  Ran into some snags with the hardware not functioning, but worked those out today.  Few more tweaks but should have something ready for Thursday evening.

Lights are Off

January 3rd, 2010

Well it is the end of another season.  I have shut down the show and started to put up what was above the ice.  Still can’t get the controllers or piano keys up but hopefully the ice will melt soon.

Thank you to everyone that came out and visited the show this year and I hope you all enjoyed it.  Check back through out the year for updates for next year.

Wondering how to take down the display

January 1st, 2010

Should be interesting to figure out how to get all of the display picked up as it is mostly under snow and ice!!!
