It's strange I have lost some int. in summer BYT. Maybe I am getting old. But I have a real desire to do winter BYT. Before you think I have gone crazy......I really have been for years.

1) With the newer large TV's .... do you accept them as BYT or does it have to be a projector? I think a Tv in the winter would be great.

2) I have some great tailgating stuff to wear that keeps you warm
I have many grills & cookers to help in keeping you warm.

3) A fire pit


You know the type of nights I am talking about that come are after a big snow when the air is still & it is really a winter wonderland outside.

If I set up a large TV (cheap brand 50 or larger with a sound bar & invite a small group of familly & friends over. Cook up a nice  fondu some hot Cider XXX & sit down in the crisp air & watch a good movie.
If the air is still it really does not get that cold sitting by a fire.


1) Early Starts
2) Easy setup
3) Easy take down
4) I think it could be more/as much fun then the summer movies.
5) Gets rid of cabin fever
6) can be done in the driveway easy to get in the house to use the rest room.
7) watch Sports outside
Cool Theme movies that fit the weather just like summer movies that fit the weather. (Christmas Movies etc.)
9) NO BUGS Shocked Maybe a few bears

My cash is still lacking but if you can dress for the cold & deal with a TV it has to be great.

Am I crazy?  Shocked Shocked Shocked

If i do this I will find out when I invite Gill & Ron! Grin Grin

I have taken my seven inch tv/Dvd player outside & that was fun!


White Christmas outside with Bing



Why should CA, AZ, & Fl have all the fun Wink

You would only have to worry about condensation on the electronics really. I'm thinking most peeps woul rather just be indoors

If any of y'all would do this, you could call it: BrrrrrYT. ;p

LOL


I think for limited condensation you just keep the TV in the garage. Again It would be an old one or cheap one to use outdoors.

I live in Wisconsin and we've had an outdoor super bowl party the last three years. It was a blast! I made an insulated cover for the projector, and a big fire in the fire pit. It was about 38 degrees at game time. I think you would enjoy winter byting

My backyard movie theater turns in to a skating rink.   Only once have I projected a movie on the Gemmy while we skated.   Generally just have music playing.

Backyard Movie Theater transforms in to Backyard Ice Rink.

Awesome.

I have thought about showing A Christmas Story or Christmas Vacation  outside this year, but just one night. Maybe a fire pit or rent some patio heaters to keep warm. But I will probably just end up watching them inside on the 8' screen.

It's about making memories for the family and friends.   BYT movies, skating or other events that bring people together for a fun time.
