Just in case people want more detail here's the contest scoring system:
-relevance to tradition 25%
I think there is 500 bucks of prices split into three prizes of cash...
There are three judges...
I suppose our group can submit more than one if we want (we'll just see
what comes forward)...
Servo, why don't you share that link of the mechanically switched Parols
with the list.. :)

> Okay we already have a team (more welcome)!
> Phase 1

> -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

> 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).
