    I'm in. I'm leaving for Italy a couple days later.

    Just me and a bunch of King Eggrolls.

    See you there.

    I'm in and will be there with my two children. This time they'll probably have their swimming suits.

    How about a package or two of Johnsonville Brats with buns from me?

    Mmm, Johnsonville Brats!

    I'll bring my mom and the Santa Maria tri-tip from Dittmer's, like last time.

    Probably will also bring camera, macro rings, tripod, and light box for some flashlight glamor shots.

    Oh, and maybe some flashlights too.

    And a green laser. At 50mW you don't need smoke to see the beam.

    All Right!

    I'll put it on the calendar. Probably just my son and I since the wife/daughter have another plan that night.

    Have to work out details of what to bring later...

    Safe to assume you are bringing the sphere again?

    May need the big dog for my V2K Copper if you are that curious!

    No promises but I might have a line on a big light. I'm hoping that I can borrow it, at least, because I sure as heck can't afford to buy it. Stay tuned...

    Dat2zip and I plan to attend. Thanks for the invitation. I will think of something good food to bring. And I will bring a Tupperware catalog.

    Did you hear about the gas line explosion in San Bruno?
    I wrote to Patrick aka unnerv and he is fine and out of danger.

    There was another CPFer who attended the last GTG from San Bruno. Does anyone know his name?

    Does anyone have a Firefly III they can bring? I want to test the Firefly II 123 and FFII CR2 bodies on one to see they fit.

    There was obvious smoke in the air here in Santa Clara this evening, about 40 miles downwind.

    I just found out about this gathering last night so I'm scrambling to get my schedule clear. I would have never known about it at all if weren't for Ms SS & Dat2zip; thank you.

    I'll post back with a confirmation one way or the other.

    By the way, if anyone has a Malkoff M30 or M31 they want to bring to trade or sell, I'd be a happy camper. It's for my SF G1 shorty build.

    Thanks,

    It's on my radar, but that is the Saturday after classes start and I can't say right now if I'll be roped into something. If I can go I will gladly bring a selection of non-alcoholic drinks.

    I've had a request to break out the fog machine so we can play with lasers.
    So make sure you bring'em if you've got'em.

    I will take some ChickenStrips ala hotwing type.

    Lights of interests, not many left but I will take:

    • Surefire L1 Milke Extreme Copper w/ K2 TFFC
    • 3D Mag by PCC at 2200 OTF and 1900ish at 4min.
    • 2D Mag by PCC w/XR-E R2 EZ900 = 57,500 lux at 1m and 247 OTF
    • Some pretty Oveready.com Z2 lights
    • Fivemega MagFire 2*18650 body
    • Some ROP builds ect...
    • AaronM Surefire L2 w/copper slug heatsink. AT 6watts via stock driver it does 415 OTF w/MC-E Warm. AT 3~5min it still does 413ish OTF. One of the most efficient lights I have tested to date. Low current, but high lumens is always welcomed.
    I might take 2 buddies, but Stephan is already a member here so nobody new or recently converted to the light.

    bigC
    Surefire 6P with Malkoff M60 simple, bright, efficient.
