This was a complete blast! It was great to get a chance to enjoy some time with everyone and do some tinkering. I hope we are able to do this again in the future soon.

Wow cool you guys were able to make time to do a meet-up. There are a few lighting guys in my area. Would be cool to do a meet up with all of them at once. VHOO, paintballer, slz, AntStar85, and Joe Maurath are all not too far from me plus there's a couple of GoL members too.

Would be really awesome to set up a big LG meet-up but I unfortunately can't travel too far, which is probably the case for a lot of members. Maybe someday though!

There are only 2 other LG members in my area and none of them were interested in doing this. I would love to do something like this though.

LEDs = Downgrade 85% of the applications.

Cool pic guys...and some interesting lamps, but the one that caught my eye most was that SOX

It'd be cool to go to a LG meetup, but as far as I know there is only one other member here.
That said, There's multiple members here from various xmas-light forums, and they try to do a monthly meetup. Those I do try to attend

--------
@RyanKorponay12:
Looking at the pic I see:
#1 (can't tell)
#2 F48 slimline fixture (could also be a HO)
#3 F90T12 (retrofit for T17's)
#4 SOX, and its gotta be a higher-wattage one, gonna take a guess: 135w ??
#5 F90T17
#6 F48PG17

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

See this is what I like about LG the most... you get the opportunity to meet others from all walks of life, who share
the same passion for lighting that you do. Although I have never met anyone face to face here in Dayton Ohio that is also a lighting
enthusiast, I only know one lighting enthusiast on LG that lives in Dayton.
Andy Sodium, I see that Harley Davidson hat. If you ride, thumbs up to you as well for being on two wheels

Interests
1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend

Wow so glad you lot had a meet up and had an awesome time! Andy Sodium's SOX lamp is indeed a 180W one which is very hard to source, did he get it from the UK via eBay??

LED streetlights are flipping Yussless!!!! I'd may as well be in the dark!!!!!

Flaming Nora, where are SOX, SON, MH and MV when you need them

Thank you! I do ride, I have a Dyna and a FZ6R.

@Beta 5
You are correct! It is a 135w unit for my GEC Z9554. I would be ecstatic to get my hands on a 180w unit someday for sure.

@rjluna2
Those vintage c7 Christmas bulbs you have were really cool, I've never seen anything like those before.

@Andy Sodium, you my friend, have caught my interest. I've never heard of the Dyna, but I have heard of the
Yamaha Fz6, and the Fz6r. That's an awesome bike for beginners too despite it being a 4 cylinder 600cc.
Although my name is "Suzuki"r122 (r123 on Youtube) I just bought a Daytona 600, which is a supersport bike. This bike
is amazing so far, and it looks stunning. Once I get a better camera, I will be posting a pic on here sometime... maybe
through an off-topic thread. My username starts with "Suzuki" for a reason though. I'll be keeping the Daytona, but adding
another bike... the next bike will more than likely be a 750cc supersport bike from Suzuki.
It's great to know I'm not the only one who rides a motorcycle on here!
