This thread started out over here...

Anyone up for a UK diyAudio Meet?

(I did leave most of the discussion of Canadian beer, the nice weather and the lovely women back there)

VI diyFEST number 4 will be held on Sat July 28 at its usual spot up on the side of Mount Finlayson on the outskirts of Victoria. BC. This is the same day as the fledgling UK diy event and the idea of having some cross-contamination leading to future events held world-wide on the same day has gotten a spark.

Events & attendance will likely spill over onto the day before & after as has happened in the previous years. Things typically get rolling between 10-11 in the morning.

There is lots of room to pitch a tent, or throw a sleeping bag on the deck or in the living room. Bed & breakfast can be found fairly close, and it is a lovely 20 minute drive from Victoria where a much larger selection of motels can be found.

We can also arrange to pick up people at the airport or ferry terminal(s).

I will be putting up a little web-site, i don't know if it will get as fancy as Vikash's for the UK event, but who knows.

Do let me know if you plan on attending so i can at least ensure enuff food (you have to bring your own beer, etc, and are welcome to bring your own favorite for the barbie) or if you have any special dietary requirements.

If you are allergic to cats bring your anti-histamine.

This is the link to last years event's thread 3rd Annual Vancouver Island diyFEST 2006

This years will be much the same but hopefully we will be even better prepared and i do expect larger attendance.

Hey, I'm thinking of coming this year. How does this thing work? Are some people camping? What's a better idea, flying in and out through Victoria, or travelling through Van and staying with a friend and only coming to the big isle for Sat.? Weren't the ferries outrageously slow on the long weekend last year?

I am going to try to make it out to the coast for this this year. There is not many people in Saskatchewan let a lone ones that build cool amps and speakers.

It works however it works This has been a typically very informal event...

The last couple years Scott has at least camped. More people just brought a roll up foamy (or in Cal's case, his own air bed), and crash on the deck (front (covered) or back (uncovered)) or the living room floor... we have an odd one we can dig up as well.

If you can get to the airport (i'm thinking there is still a direct flight from Calgary) or onto the ferry (there is never a problem if you are a foot passenger) we can get you at this end.

As the event draws nearer i'm sure some car-pooling from Vancouver could be happening, with guys from the lower mainland & up from WA state. Car-pooling can be as simple as meeting someone on the ferry...

You might be surprised It would be great to see a larger contingent from far away places.

OK, thanks for all the info Dave. I'll start talking to my buddy, keeping my eye on the seat sales, and see what falls into place. If it works out, I'd like to spend a 2nd day sightseeing. And if you still have a couple of those Sony OPT's left I'll try to wrangle them off you in person.

Hi Leadbelly,

If you can't get to Victoria, see what seats are available to Abbotsford on Westjet. I might be able to grab you on the way in

Wow, thanks for the offer! I'll see what works out, it's good to have lead time to find cheap seats
