Had our 2nd showing over the July 4th weekend.  A good turnout for National Treasure 2.  Neighbors 1 street over were lighting off some impressive fireworks that blew off directly over our viewing area.  A nice mix of movie and fireworks.

Those who saw my last posting might remember my concern over getting my screen up higher off the ground.  A simple, yet very effective solution, from another BYT.com member (you know who you are) was a great success.  Take a look at the attached pictures.  A little more time to set up but well worth it.

After the movie some of us stuck it out a bit longer and took advantage of the nice night.  Played a few Wii games: Wii Bowling, MarioKart and Rayman Raving Rabbids.  We've done this before but I haven't seen too many posting of this on the site.  If you have a Wii I'd highly recommend it as an after the show game event.  In my opinion, the most essential item for set-up would be the Nyko Wireless Sensor Bar (runs off of a few AA batteries).  It can be picked up just about anywhere Wii's are sold.  I also think that it has a stronger signal than the wired sensor that comes with the Wii.  Just my opinion.

Let me know what you think.  I'd be happy to help out with any questions regarding the Wii set-up.

Well done, braun6!  That looks like a blast!  Nice work on your screen and frame.   Grin

IS there a chance to get a better pic of how you raised the screen and how it's being supported.

Rooster,
I bought a screen from them 3 years ago. It is actually black out cloth, not rubber canvas. Its makes a great screen but it can't be cleaned easily. It would be cheaper to buy from Carl.

As for fun with the wii, we played guitar hero, bowling and baseball last night. Great fun for all. The cops even liked it! Here are a couple of trouble makers with their rock faces on.Cool
