Okay we already have a team (more welcome)!
-There's a dropbox share with contest documents and details. If people want
a different kind of share let me know..
-We can figure out what to do (if we want to have a couple meetings or
online or whatever)
-Competitive Intelligence: I'm going to see who's in and see what they're
up to. (evil laugh). I think this is the first year for the parol contest.
If not I'll get pictures of last year and add them to the CI folder...
-I'm gonna get myself into a couple of parties and see what I can find out.
:) Anybody want to join the CI activities? :)

> I was invited by the Philippines embassy to participate in their parol
> It's a really easy thing to make and I though it could be a fun group
> We could make a really big parol out of cardboard and tissue and then
> decorate it with LEDs and arduino...
> I think it just needs an arduino and a strip or two of WS2812b. They
> strips don't even have to be cut since they can just be looped around
> inside it.
> It's a great opportunity to flog arduino, electronics, diy, making,
> Here's my own parol project http://inventorartist.com/tag/parol/ (which
> is probably uninteresting for the contest since it's small)...
> I happen to have a stash of cardboard at Artengine that is perfect for a
> large parol. The cardboard is very large and is the very thick kind (with
> two layers of congregation and three layers of actual cardboard). This
> stuff is hard to come by in perfect shape (and in that large format we had
> to use my buddies SUV to bring it in without warping it).
