Besides buying a T-shirt (got plenty now), can we come up with some sort of Audio Circle identification (using our AC nicknames) to recognize each other at this (and other) shows?

Feel so bummed out discovering afterwards that someone from AC was at the same show on the same day and may have walked right past them.

ACA will be on the 2nd Floor in The Sheffield Room with Modwright, Skogrand Cables, & Triangle Art.

It's going to be FUN.

Pete, I agree.  I'll see you sometime, at some location.

If I do another DSD seminar we could meet there and throw $h!5 at me.

Seriously, an AC Friday evening would be fun.  Lobby at 6pm?  Something like Hofbrau?

Well, the thread is only 7 (now eight) posts old so not too much info yet.  In the post directly before yours I threw out 6pm in the lobby, for maybe a trip to the HofbrauHaus (down the street a mile or so; we did that a couple years ago).  That's the net of it.  If you have a better time or location I'm sure we can work it out.

Oops. I'll probably have to pass at that location. (Food issues) Sounds like fun though :thumb:

LampizatOr will be there in room 654 where we will debut our dedicated music server, the DSD Komputer in play with one of our DACs (probably a golden gate).

Confirmed room partners will be Vapor and Verrastarr.

Love to catch up with some of my AC peeps while we're there!

What about the folks who can only make it for a day or can't all come to a dinner out?  Could someone post a fillable/printable AC name tag or set up next to the registration desk with AC stickers?

The lets do something else.  Drinks maybe, or just a get together in some unused ballroom or at the Westin bar.

JLM, I doubt if Axpona folks will let us make addtl name tags, and the registration process asks for standard first name last name stuff, no real chance for forum monikers.  We need an AC meeting place.   Or ask everyone to go to the drug store and get "Hello My Name Is" tags and put our AC moniker on it and put it on our shirts/jackets.  If I remember, the Axpona badges are lanyard type (hanging from the neck).

Ted, was thinking of a secondary table (maybe self-serve) next to to the registration area.

Perhaps AC sponsors could provide stickers/whatever for AC members. 

Last year I rode with a friend (500 miles round trip) and we did the show in a day, so no time for an extravagant meal afterwards.  Don't know how many others are in the same boat.

Wayne Myers and I will be reporting for HTS again this year. HofbrauHaus is a great place to order shots for your friends.   :icon_twisted: :whip:

I'd be happy to meet up for drink! I'm just... a pain with food and it's annoying for me especially.

Sticky tags seems like a decent idea. Maybe someone would like organize purchasing stickers online that have the audio circle logo on them, and sending them out for a few $ ?

How about an AC sponsor have the stickers in their room.  Try to meet at a certain time Friday and Saturday.  Who has a big room??

Look fwd to attending AXPONA and will keep an eye for when/where to meet-up. FYI: There's a great Chicago pizza place around the corner (behind the McDonalds). Am sure many exhibitors would love to have us meet there, yet what about pizza and beer instead :)

You're thinking of Giordano’s.  It's a local chain that make wonderful deep dish pizza.  Easy walking distance from the hotel, just walk out the front and turn left - two doors down.  Ate there last year (and at other Giordano's in years past).
