    It's open to every one. With the forums off line so much lately, there has been a lot less posting. We always have a good time. I have to stop at Safeway and grab some chips and Coke for my part.

    Address is indeed 192nd street?

    Edit: (sounds like that's the place to be!)

    Ah but of course - the sever migration. Eternal thanks to the powers-that-be who are clearly working so hard to maintain these lovely forums... I surely must show my 'support' formally soon. I've learned so much in my humble 24 posts.

    It indeed isn't near public transport, so my chances of participating seem dim. If anyone near Capitol Hill could offer a ride... PM me and get some gas money out of it! I'm a nonthreatening geeky 27 year old Eagle Scout willing to ride in the trunk.

    You are invited if you like lights! It was Awesome. If you were in the area you would have seen many little lights shining about and two powerful, (sometimes three), searchlights buzzed the sky over the get together, to guide late night travelers. I'll post some more photos, after I get some sleep...

    Nighthawk and Death Ray at CPF Get Together. I need to better focus the Nighthawk. 24 hours later you can see this thing shining in the sky from seven miles away!

    30 inch Searchlight shines out over Hillsboro.

    Portland is what is lighting up the clouds in background.

    I'll get some more photos posted, as I get them edited.

    That is a pretty cool 3-D picture. We should have more 3-D pictures in CPF.

    What do you mean "imitation 3-D view"? Your 3-D image works pretty darn good, assuming you know how to view 3-D cross-eyed photos.

    Suggestion: include a human for size reference. Yes, it does say "30 inch Nighthawk", but something about seeing a flashlight half as big as a person is muy bueno.

    I know what you mean about the 3-D photos. I learned that 'crossed-eyed' trick during Geology map making class.

    A human cutout ,(LOL), will add good scale.

    So when's the next one? August... September?

    I would gladly help... so put me on the planning team.

    As far as I know, usually September is when I think the 'barn' is available. Weather usually still quite nice.

    I think last year was September 22nd. It falls on a Saturday this year, so that could work. If we can get a date down, I may be able to bring an interesting prototype light

    I'm in Spokane. I can come and bring my Lk14 build, Olight SR-90, and my 2nd homemade incan handheld spotlight build. (almost-finished-yet-to-be-posted)
