Last spring, on about May 8th, I posted the following:
Mike has already spilled the beans, so I will amplify a little. I feel badly that we were not completely done with installation and setup before the Meet started. That had been the original intent. I would like to make it up to everyone who came, by offering to host another East Coast BlendZilla Meet, in like October, say the 20th/21st. Picture in your mind's eye driving down the driveway with the 20 Norwegian maples in full bloom, a dazzling display of every hue imaginable from red to orange to yellow, on the way to a fully optimized twin Electrohome Extreme BlendZilla setup, projecting (from source to screen) only 1080P/72 native, via either HD DVD or Bluray. Mike standing on the side, beaming at his babies. Ken already having finished his work, able to sit there and simply enjoy the result. Clarence challenging the rig with the nastiest, most difficult to correctly process clips he can find, and the rig properly responding with ease. Mark challenging everything. Cliffy challenging everyone (and playing his favorite scene from Crank). Don's cooking hanging in the cool crisp autumn air.
The Mars orbiter aeronomy mission proposal I have been working on for more than 2 years is due to NASA on October 19. The 20th seems like a good day to start a party................
Mike Parker/John Barnes/William Kosmann/Don Wallace/Bill Belcher Productions would like to officially announce the
East Coast BlendZilla Meet, Part Deaux.
The Meet will be on October 20th, Saturday, from about 1:00 PM until Cliffy and Clarence go to bed. Featured will be a 12 foot wide version of the image that Mike puts out on his lowly lowly 8" Marquee AC. Don has agreed to again provide barbeque (the details of which are his choice) and I will supply Dominion Pale Ale on tap to wash it down. Please post in this thread if you would like to come. The first 15 attendees are:
Mike Parker and Patrice
John Barnes and SO
Don Wallace and his wife whose name I forgot
Bill Belcher and Teresa
William Kosmann and Cheryl
Ashley the dog (who is not Cliffy's date)
Arli (Bomrat), to keep Cliffy attended
I will not limit attendance, as I have plenty of room for cars and visitors.
PS: I have been paying attention, Cliffy.
