    I won't be headed your direction until Saturday morning so I guess I'll have to pass again - sorry guys.

    Keep us in the loop buddy. Maybe we can do another mini one if you are in town.

    I've been doing all my planning based on being in New Westminster either Saturday or Sunday next week (23rd or 24th), so if that's still a go, then I'll drive the extra miles to get there.

    I'm not sure about a weekend date myself, but perhaps a mini meetup for a couple others?

    Also another note, since KD can't make the meet, we don't have to meet in New West on thursday. I'm open for other suggestions as to locations. SOmewhere where dark where we can check out extreme throw, flood etc...

    We had a good suggestion for central park since we are at solstice (long days). You guys know any cool hangouts near there?

    Since the actual GTG is on Thursday and I won't be able to make it, is there anyone who wants to meet up Saturday or Sunday between the border and Prince George? I'd been planning on going out of my way to make it to New Westminster but there appears to be no reason to drive so far out of my way at this point.

    Well. The get-together was a nice little success. We had a few last minute cancellations but the four of us (krazy89, bla2000, and gadgetor) had fun checking out the newest toys from sunwayman, lumapower, and a host of others.

    I think I sold a few jetbeam tcr1s (everyone loves these) and I need to get a flood mako!

    Next time, no meetups at summer solstice! Longest day of the year!

    There will be autographs and pictures handed out.

    I'm trying it out for a few days. It's a colored one tho. Should have grabbed that mint xpg, silver one a few days ago.

    Great deal there!

    Still. This one is neat. Just need to try at night.

    I played with that one from Pete too. I love my Haiku XP-G though. You gotta get one. Glad you had fun.

    Please excuse the lousy pictures. I was rather rushed taking them. Final tally: 8 hours for Pete! And several thousand dollars in lights!


    So, who can guess the value of these lights?



    Bla2000, itching to get his timbits




    Crazy89, back from the dead, to check out some lights.




    Kaichu and Avro, clowning around.



    Me and Kaichu, deciding what to grab when the SHTF!




    The Sunwayman spread. Get em while they're hot!



    Makes you feel like a giant eh?





    Avro, checking out the loot.



    Who brought this cheap POS?




    A weird russian import. Stay tuned for a (long overdue) review!



    Another cheap POS!



    A fistful of Gizmos...




    Mindstretch, bringer of the snacks! (and cool knives!)

    Wow, I missed my chance to compare the Jetbeam TCR1 and SWM V10R Ti+. Looks like it was a fun meet. Would have been cool to meet the fellow Drake/Draco owners to chat and see if there are any emitter swaps to increase the output. I think my Drake has an XR-E R2 or something in it.
