Swell... Darell first reads this AFTER he gets home, and AFTER he stands it two WRONG lines at two different locations. Whew. But I made it, baby!

I made the same mistake also except when I showed up at the tent there was no one in line so I didn't waste any time which was fortunate.

No free internet at the hotel I stayed in. :(

Larry isn't kidding, BTW! He actually won the pork-killer in the raffle from PK. Can you believe it?! Does anybody else want to whack him besides me?

Pork killer. Ha. What about the pork shocker? (the one with the gold tape on it)

Yeah, me. Larry had ticket #57 ... I had #58! Funny how I seem remember him cutting in front of me. Not biased! :D

The party was a blast (I won an L1 :D)! PK outdid himself showing new stuff, was an awesome host, gave a lecture on what is a "tactical light" :crackup:, etc. Above all, the company was superb! Very happy I could finally make it to SHOT and meet all of you guys! I'm still dead tired (had 2 hours of sleep on Sat - early morning flight out of LV :green:)

Sasha has the "tactical pig" version, BTW! :laughing:

Welcome to the club, Lucky Larry. Coolest light I've ever owned! I managed to get the little brother, the L-2 PK recently too. Makes for a nice family photo! Better not take it to work, though. Tends to freak people out!!:whistle:

Before more time goes by, I'd like to thank PK very much for inviting me to SHOT this year, and for hosting a party for CPF'ers. It was a privilege to meet such an outstanding group of individuals. I'm really proud and happy to be part of the family. :)

Hi Folks...

I just got home an hour or so ago and wanted to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH to PK for the SHOT Show passes and the party!

I was also the lucky winner of a G2 and a Surefire T-shirt in the raffle :)

During my brief stay at the party it was my great pleasure to meet a few fellow CPF'ers, notably Arewethereyetdad, Cy, GreenLED, Mut, and Size15's.

I'm already looking forward to 2008 :)

PK, thanks again for the great hospitality!

-Tim

Who is planning on going to SHOT in 07 in Orlando, I'm a lil over an hour from there. I'm definatley in.
I hope you're spreading the word. We're expecting to see the whole Florida contingent there. CUE is from that neck of the woods, isn't he? I guess we'll need a FL roster so we know who doesn't show up

I did the same silly thing, but, because I got to the convention center at 07:00, the lines weren't too long, and the folks were still fresh enough to not laugh in my face when they told me I was in the wrong line.

My hotel had no free internet access, either... when I posted to say I'd arrived, it cost me more than a Starbucks for the privilege, so I figured I could survive w/o the connectivity.

Now, as soon as I go read how to post pictures here, we'll see some shots with PEOPLE in them, not just flashlights. (Don't worry, Merri, I won't post that one! :) :sssh: :lolsign:

And as for the rest of you, don't get excited; it's merely a "you had to be there" kind of a thing, and the other folks at the buffet that night know what I mean.

THANKS PK!!!! :bow: Amazingly, it was just as much fun as last year. The prototypes were awesome and you are THE life of the party. You're truly the definition of "it's nice to be important, but more important to be nice".

You'd think getting a bunch of flashlight otaku together (most notably me) is a recipe for social disaster, yet once again we all hit it off and the party was rocking in short order. Nothing like a Hellfire running on the "beyond extreme ultra" setting as an icebreaker.

Between the party, JSB's, Jim's/HDS and the LRI booths, I had a lot of good chats and saw some really cool products. It's going to be a hard year for my Visa card.

I nominate Amber from LRI for the "Rescue Timmy From The Well" award. I was talking to "Bobbo" and trying to point out the couple of folks I recognized, including David Allen of LRI (another guy who's even nicer than he is important).
Bobbo wasn't familar with Photon lights, and I thought I'd left mine at the hotel. I started looking for my SO to steal hers, when David's son and Amber walked in, took sympathy on my predicament and GAVE Bobbo an X-Light. What a bunch of nice folks!

Another moment in CPF history was the Sasha Fan Club convincing Darrell to call her, demanding up-to-the-second ETA's. (We just didn't want you to forget the party, honest!)

Lot of fun. Thanks again to PK, Ted Bear and everybody who showed up.

Cheers,
Bob

Ah yes. I recall she was pretty tickled that I called here while she was in the hall right outside the door. ;)

Hey! I was late because my husband and I were enjoying a nice relaxing dinner at Benihana's and then I had a hard time getting my poor swollen feet into those red shoes... :eeksign: .... Besides... what fun would it have been if I hadn't made "an entrance"? ;) :D

I just want to tell you all that I had a really great time at the party as well. It was really, really great to meet all of you... and yes, I do mean that :grouphug:

I managed to take a few photos of the "previews" at the CPF party that didn't look like colored sandpaper.


PK's infamous flashlight carrier


Flashlights equipped with 10 & 20W LEDs, which PK claims will be available by SHOT 2007


The "Mini-Beast" Note the 2 lights dangling from PKs neck - those are "Pocket Rocket" prototypes
