Default 5th Annual Vancouver Island diyFEST

August 23rd in the usual place. (up the mountain in Victoria, BC)

Some people have been making this a weekend long affair so we expect some people to arrive Friday night and not leave till Sunday -- Terry don't be shy this year (and the ones that show up as much as a week early get to help in the preparations)

Jesse says the timing should be such that fresh Alert Bay salmon will make an apperance and Cal insists on cooking it this year.

We'll have a 4th listening area set up, and are planning to have a "blind" (as in speakers behind a blind) for people to compare EnABL vrs not. We should also have some more interesting amplifiers this year, and will work to make the supports for sound room 3 solid enuff to be able to spin some vinyl.

this is probably enough notice - be advised that parking can get a bit tight, and it's definitely BYOB (bring your own blanky)

sorry boys, tiger torches & fireworks restricted this year - there's always Ed's Hornfest for that

See you there! For any "fence sitters", make the effort. Dave and Ruth are great hosts, with a great "supporting cast".
