Sweet…so who sets the new target date?  I have my plan, just need to pull some pieces together.

As I said, I’m ok with pushing the date back. Maybe we’ll do it just before Christmas - say that Wednesday (December 22). I’ll have my new laptop up and running before then, it’s suppose to be delivered next week.

@iggy: Handling the videos is the only real thing I still have to work out. I have an idea of how I want to do it, but I haven’t been able to confirm that piece yet.
May the force be with you all!

Remember... speak softly and carry a well constructed light saber! :)

That timeframe is good for me to build another.

What about you others? Think you can join in the fun by then?

I thought someone had mentioned moving into Q1 of next year….I have my idea but won’t be able to pull everything together over the next month.

Yeah, that would have been FJK.

And he got a fair amount of grief about it before the rest of you saw the now fairly obvious.  :undecided: :police:




I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.

It would have to be later than that for me to be in on this one. December 22nd is basically 'tomorrow' when we are in this holiday time the time goes by instantly with family requests, day trips, work and so on. I'd love to see what everyone came up with! Unfortunately my entry isn't close enough to finish by the end of this year because I've got a few customer orders I"m working on that isn't leaving me the free time necessary to do the contest build right now. This year went by too fast!!

Checking again on when the final deadline is.  If you can push to the end of January, I am in.  Have my plan, just need the parts.  Only going to start procuring if I have a good sense that I will make it. 

Curious how many are ready at this point?

Yeah. I’m ready. But i may still ruin in trying to make improvements with the extra time.

Do we know yet, how entries are to be submitted?

Ok, so I committed and have most of what I need for this.  I should be done in about a month, so having not heard much, hopeful that we can move out to late Jan, early Feb.  hopefully that lets Anthony join so he can crush us all again!

Iggy/Greenie -

Since I have not heard back on the last post, and think you guys might be the only confirmed finished participants, are you ok targeting late Jan/early feb?  Have all my parts and plans, just don’t want to go through the full plan unless I am good to join you (will still install a saber, just maybe not all the bells and whistles.)  I won’t win, same as last year, but will be fun nonetheless!

Yeah. Im fine with that. We want as many entries as possible but we do need someone to confirm an official date or this could drag on indefinitely.

I think that FJK’s proposal (the one everyone trashed) is the one that makes most sense. The council will discuss it, and talk to FJK and we will make a decision soon.

What got trashed?   I don’t remember issues with the proposal, only that his date wouldn’t have given me enough time.  I think the last one he threw out here was actually today. 

I have started and am confident that I will wrap up within a month, maybe sooner.

I think they modded out some posts after FJK posted.  :cheesy:

I am fine with whatever. While waiting I ended up using the board I picked up for the 2nd entry on another saber I had been putting off for too long. I have worked out pretty much all the machining on the second entry so now it will just be the install.  :wink:

We realize that this may not be overly popular in some corners, The Council has decided to go with FJK’s initial plan of a February 14th deadline, since we want as many participants as possible in this.

Merry Christmas everyone!
