We should definitely plan one! I'd just need enough time in advance, of course (as would all of us). RMAF would be cool, but my youngest daughter's birthday party might be that weekend (her birthday is the 11th of October). I am waiting for the wife to let me know.
And the fun just begins on the west coast with CAS. Great Northwest GTG anyone?! September 18th. Lincoln City, Oregon, right between the tall timbers and the ocean on the central Oregon coast. Mmmmmm.......
We have the best mini-convention in the land. Well....at least I think so.
(Here is last year's wrap-up thread.... http://forums.audioholics.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59584&highlight=oregon+gtg
.) It's a relaxed atmosphere and a great chance to vacation at one of the most beautiful parts of the country and perhaps make some new friends. This year we will have a little different format, though. It will be more performance evaluation oriented than show-like. Nevertheless, we have some surprises lined up. Perhaps a brand new, top of the line speaker from a major manufacturer, a Limited Edition model to be expressly marketed in conjunction with the event, lots of the usual freebies, including lunch, etc! Keep your eyes open for further details as sponsorships are finalized. I even have a hunch we just might be visited by a pair of Salk speakers we don't talk much about, and maybe even a certain crossover designer....
While we had ~60 people last year, this year's event will be very limited
with regard to attendance. If you are interested in attending, PM me soon.
