    Default DC/Northern Virginia enthusiasts?

    Just curious if there are other DC area / Northern Virginia laser show enthusiasts?

    I know we've got Tribble :-)

    If so, perhaps a get together in the Feb/March time frame?

    I'm in Frederick Maryland...not a whole lot of electrical knowledge but would love to learn to build. Projectors and shows are a hobby.

    KEEP it COHERENT!
    Peace.

    I'm an hour and a half from DC so, anything in the DC/Northern Virginia area is do-able from a distance standpoint. The issue is an open date. When your primary job responsibilities happen on weekends, you need to have unemployed laser friends who can geek out on say... Tuesdays.

    I have every other Friday off, in theory... A micro-DC LEM would rock!

    If you take Great Yarmouth as being one of the larger towns about 3219 miles

    About 4 hours, give or take stops and traffic.

    I'm supposed to be in DC for a memorial service on MLK Day weekend. My cousin went to be with the Lord, and the first day the family could agree on was MLK weekend. NO Promises. But I could try to attend for a while. This would be in Northern Virginia, not DC Actual for me.

    Sorry I missed some of these.

    JohnYayas - You're not in Norfolk are you? I just moved from there.

    I think MLK day has passed? Sorry to hear the bad news Mixed :-/

    I was thinking after the weather warms up a bit.

    Meanwhile if you're coming to the area and want to hang out anyone -- feel free to ping me.

    I am very interested in meeting other local laserists! I am based out of the Winchester, VA area. I have been primarily operating lasers but I really want to start building my own. I also agree Tuesday meeting.
