Can I come? I can't swim but maybe for once the ferry won't sink.


I even wrote a haiku:

Thank you for wasting
The best years of my life
Three legged device

Sure -- at least 3 others from Canada are coming over on the boat.

it's only the overnight / north / south boats that we need worry about.

(there's hardly enough elapsed time on the Tsawwassen / Sidney run for the crew to get dangerously involved in their distractions )

for those not familiar, some residents of the Island consider themselves citizens of an independent country - for us Vancouver is the "big smoke"

Default Is this going to be a Fostex event ?

Are speakers with crossovers in them allowed, or will I have to apply for a permit this year? Also, I really am going to need to sneak a pair in behind the "Blind" in order to have any fun with you guys again......

True a lot of my speakers have Fostex and they live here so they are inevitable, but even we are working on some 2-ways -- some active and some passive. Maybe even a 3-way (likely have a Fostex midrange thou )

Got some Jordans here to.

Would love to have more people bring multiways.

Yes, but they have to be moveable by less than 6 men

I'll do my best. Now that they are a 3 way, I've seem to rely more on the big boxes to give the bass a boost. Ah what the heck, yoos guys are used to 4.5" drivers, they'll be fine. What amp are we gonna try? I remember something about a 1 watter I had in my bedroom for a couple months. Something about a flea?
