    I am planning to attend, but not guaranteed. One of the drawbacks to the water supply business is that, even though it will be my normal day off, an unexpected leak can kill all your plans with no notice.

    Wish I could attend the gathering! As of right now, I don't think I'll be able to make it......depends on how well I respond to out-patient rehab! I've been in hospital from 11 May to 5 Aug!....Was unconcious for the first 4weeks....Kidney failure. Well on the road to recovery.....but as of right now my 5 month old kitten is stronger than I am!!!
    Bright...Small...Long Runtime.......You can have any two but NOT all three!

    Will correctly revised the nominal starting time -- 8:00pm. However, some of us fanatics will be there earlier .

    Anyone know if there is a lot of table space at the park? I may bring along a small folding table to put stuff on.

    I'll bring my white Sprinter hightop cargo van and a folding table.
    It's tall enough inside for most of us to stand up inside.
    If the weather doesn't co-operate, we can just go inside my van to wait it out.

    I'm still in as ever.
    I will have a tub full of lights in the van.
    Address and map?

    Stephen, I just got back from a visit to the park. It's very nice. The pavilion (a good rain shelter) has way more tables than we'll need, 120vac power, restrooms, parking, and a lake. Lots of natural targets for those long reaching lights.

    Address is 2601 San Gabriel, Plano. It's south of Parker Rd. abt. 3 mi. E of Central.

    Who's bringing the drinks and the food, just so that we don't end up with everyone bringing drinks and no food, or all food with no drinks?

    I figured I'd bring a large cooler with Cokes (regular & diet), Dr. Peppers (same) and water. I can't guarantee there'll be enuf for everyone since I don't have any idea how many will show up.

    Food?

    By the way, these are the official park rules . Food and drinks are OK - just no alcohol.

    I will try to be there, I will bring my 12 volt powered intellipeak ICE charger.

    I'm sure some one will forget or need a charger. It will charge most any thing, up to 10 cells And 1 up to 4 li-ion or li-po. DAVID

    Along with my ICE charger I can also bring a power inverter only 330watt .I don't have many lights at the moment. I have the ROP with six sub cells
    And a Frankenstein light running a 30 watt bulb. And lest not forget my A2 and a few others. For my charger I have cases built to charge 8 AA cells and one more for 4 AA.

    I also have a one or two folding tables if need, and If need to pick up some thing PM me and I will brining what ever the groups need or want.

    Looks like I won't make it for the dfw get together after all.
    I'll be in Houston next week to help straighten out a few disaster stricken delivery routes there.
    If the Houston get together happens next week, I might can make that there.
    I'll bring a few of my better lights with me.

    I might be able to attend if I get out of work by 7pm, I'm also trying to get my coworkers husband to attend since she mentioned that he and his father might be flashaholics also, maybe I'll get lucky and his dad will bring me the 2 Ultrafires I asked them to bring me and break them in on the 8th.

    Looks like I will be coming after all.
    I turned down the chance to make a few extra bucks to work in Houston to instead find a better courier service to drive for in the dfw area that does have more routes in the northern part of the state.
    From what it looks like, I'll see you guys there in Plano this friday.

    Wonderful! Maybe this will be the start of periodic (semi-annual?) such get togethers. Call 'em "Photon Flings."
