    Could you PM your address? I have it stored on my work computer, and I'm off work at the moment.

    I'll give David at the production company a phone call tuesday when I get back to work per his request. As it stands, I have a business visit to Silicon Valley to explore some EE work by dat2zip and visit a company in Frisco-proper that is doing some work for my employer next friday. (With one of my tank lights chained in the bed of my pickup.) I'll spend next thursday driving up there. Saturday, I'll sleep-in and later join the party at modamag's place. The week after I fly to Orlando for SHOT! (Life is getting too freekin' complicated!)

    So much for not being able to find my happy a** with both hands and a flashlight! (Do not look into Tank Searchlight with remaining eye!)

    Look forward to meeting you Larry. Trying to find a place to fire off that tank searchlight isn't easy with both San Jose and Reid-Hillview Airports nearby. If I can get the ok from East Bay Regional Parks, I just may have a target worthy of your throw monster.

    I think I'll go, too.

    I have an inova X1 that I'd like to mod with a red 5mm led. If someone has one of those, could he please bring it? Narrow angle preferred.

    I'll be driving south thru 19th ave if anyone wants a ride.

    I'm still in, along with my kids Toast and Angel...we should be at both locations...(but might have to leave early and/or come back depending on the kids)...hope the weather is gonna be good rain wise, (haven't checked the forcast yet though)....

    What should I bring...I was thinking of ice cream/sorbet...or do we already have the desserts all covered? Otherwise I could bring fruit, nuts, chips and snacks or ???

    I think the ice cream/sorbet would be a good second dessert choice. Thanks

    Guys & gals, I just want to remind you that the mod session starts @ noon. Food & Drinks will be available at that time if you want to skip your normal lunch and join us

    The hide-out location have just been sent thru PM. If you still didn't get the address just let me or anyone attending know.

    TigerhawkT3: I can't believe you're gonna pass on the viewing of the BRIGHTEST/LONGEST throwing portable flashlight Larry's VSS3. This is like an opportunity to touch the moon if you're an astronaut ... Well you might still get to see the beam from your house

    Oh, I forgot one other thing ... The Traditional Raffle.

    It's quite simple. You bring a gift put it into the pot. At the end of the day we raffle of the gift and hopefully you don't get the item that you brought.

    Let's shoot for raffle @ 5 PM.

    Checking-in from the Embassy Suites in Santa Clara. Had dinner with Wayne and Cindy last night, drove into downtown San Fran this morning, and will darken Modamag's place and some Parc (Whoops- another thread) tomorrow night!



    At $.50/minute and typing with 2 fingers, cutting it short! (No doubt some dyslexic will respond to this post! )

    OK ...

    The meat have been trimmed, leaned & marinated with the help of lil' Andrew ... The salad have been cut & the egg rolls have been ordered.

    The house have been cleared of all Xmas remnance and all the cobweb sweeped and tucked away.

    Now for the final ingredient of a flashaholic get-together ... the LIGHTS. Unfortunately my collection is scanty so ... hopefully everyone will bring their collection. As many as you can carry / transport I'll set up a long dinning room table for display and show and tell.

    BTW: Here's a quick tallied of the food which is coming along just fine. I see another couple lbs of weight gain beyond the holiday.

    JimH - Jim's famous & fabulous beans.
    modamag - not so famous Korean BBQ, King egg rolls, salad, fruits
    vacuum3d - ice and drinks
    SheDevil - dessert
    Weylan - dim-sum
    slogan - chips and pretzels
    duanne - chinese chicken salad.
    cqbdude - chips or dessert
    DrJ - ice cream/sorbet

    modamag so graciously accepted my wife (Ladybeam) and my last minute request to attend. Just the 2 of us. We are really gonna try to make it and I can't wait to meet some of you and see others again.

    Ladybeam can bring some of her killer Weight Watchers turkey chili, it really is good.

    Hope to see you there.

    I had to miss this one, didn't finish the things I needed to in time.

    So, unfortunately "The Torch" won't get to play with the others

    Maybe next time. Hope you guys had a blast, literally.

    Modamag,
    GREAT LUNCH!!! Thank your family for us. Never saw so many lights in one spot. Yet I think some folks were modest and didn't bring out all their lights. The bright ones sure came out for the night shoot. I hear the Larry's TANK light knocked out some orbiting satellite photo sensors! Some interesting modding going on too.!
    A memorable party for all...[img]images/icons/party.gif[/img]

    Larry tiniest little light ever...







    Someone dropped their flashlight on the hill. We launched an all out assault to go look for it...



    What??? they spotted me. Now they're lighting us up!


    Larry's N Cell light turbo charged.




    I would have posted the next picture, but, he took his pants off...




    I thought this was a flashaholic event. Who said tank lights were allowed?



    Don't look into bright lights.... Ouch

    CroMAGnet took some really good pictures and I asked him to post them when he gets a chance.

    We couldn't have found a better place for the tank searchlight. I loved seeing that big luminous circle projected 1.5 miles away on the Fremont side of Mission Peak. So many hikers stopped and gawked at the searchlight. Some asked if we were conducting a search and rescue operation, while others thought we were doing something akin to Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    The parking was a little difficult, but other then that everything went according to plan and it was a great CPF event. I look forward to seeing our segment when it airs.

    Many thanks to Jonathan and family for hosting another very successful event. The food was fantastic, especially Jonathan's famous BBQ - always a special treat. Sorry I couldn't stick around to eat more than "all you can eat", but, due to a senior moment, I had left my USL at home and had to leave early to retrieve it.

    We had a lot of fun at Jonathan's place and out at the photo shoot. It was good to see old friends (Beamhead, Lady beamhead, tvodrd, and others) that I hadn't seen in a while.

    I'm very much looking forward to the next Bay Area event.

    The heck with runtime. I just want to hold the sun in my hands!! Brighter is Better!

    I want to thank Lowbat, modamag and family for a very nice get together, proving yet again that CPF is high caliber people.

    As for the guy with the tank light who RUINED ALL my lights from this day forward................


    It was great to meet new people and see some familiar ones. If any of our pics are worthy they will appear.

    PS. modamag I left my raffle item behind in envelope #1, save it for the next mod session/get together. Thanks again.
