    That was a great meet. Thanks for the barby Gav. The info on drivers and boards Matt, the hot zucchini/bacon/onion soup at home Armando, and the monstrous chocolate coma Chris, hahaha. Will post some photos later, although yours will be hard to top, Gav. Looking foward to the next meet.

    Uploading a video of the TN36VN shaved dome I got from you, there's no way the poor quality video will show what 11,000+ lumens look like out in the open field, but lets just say it's just pure MADNESS!!!

    It was great to see everyone !
    It was cold though ( or I was ) damn , took over an hour for my feet to warm after getting home ..
    Really / really need to dress more for when the sun goes down ... ( Two jumpers , a shirt and tee shirt and still felt the breeze = Must be getting old )
    Gavin , Thank you .. I will try and fix that light , but lets not wait 13 months for the next meet ..
    It might be time for doing mods ! ( Rather than just buying lights ) , will have to go to Cutter one of these days for emitters .
    Hmmm , a Nitecore D11 V2 with XP-L would be nice ...

    It was great to see everyone and meet Chris for the first time. Thanks for the candy and sodas Chris. Thanks Gav for the sausages, bread, and cheese! Thanks for the ride Mike. Thanks Matt for bringing and offering P60 drop-ins.

    Here are images from what was left of daylight:




















    Thank you, everyone, for letting me check out your nice collection of torches.

    Think those were XHP-35s, are you going to swap them to XP-Ls now?

    I ordered a XHP-35 emitter , so will will swap out the bad one ( $9.50 ) if swapping out all emitters , light need a driver / mod ..
    Definitely could be a good mod host ... The XHP 35 emitters look interesting , very interesting .. Might be good for reversing lights in a car ... ( hmmmmm )
    That gives me an idea !!!!!!!!

    Spring time meet !
    Time to start thinking about it , seems to take us a bit of time to sort something out ..
    A meet before the heat and the insects , when the weather is mild .. September / October ?
