Default Vancouver Island DIY fest '09 anyone?

It's time to start thinking about it again - the weekend of Aug 22/23rd. Main day is Saturday Aug 22.

y'all probably know most of the details, and for any potential newbies, the event would be at Dave & Ruth's place in the wilds of Finlayson Arm Rd.

While there's lots of excitement, good tunes & food, and general mucking about with audio, sorry, but no homemade fireworks (unless you count blown voice coils), bottle-rockets or open firing range.

(this ain't Southern Carolina)

Almost everything from last years FEST (2008) is applicable

Is this event only for Canadians, or are tourists allowed to attend?

I would like to attend, along with a friend, but I'm not sure as to what your dress code consists of, in case he decides to wear one.

One other question: Do they sell beer in Canada, or is the only beverage Canada Dry?

Thanks in Advance,
Terry Olson

Funny, you didn't strike me as the type to hang with cross dressers.

You gotta enforce American's preconceptions. Otherwise they feel lost and insecure. And we all know what happens next.

Actually, he just likes to blend in, he was watching this TV show and all the Canadian Band members were wearing plaid skirts.


Best Regards,

Terry, ask Kevin about Canadian beer

and in the spirit of bipartisanship, let me say it's not a "Canadian" thing or a "tourist" thing - it's an audio thing

hope to see all y'all crackers there

and Terry, tell your date to relax - "lumberjack chic" is just fine

Terry,

Can i get you to pick up the MJ magazines i have stashed at Audio Magus on your way up. Your bed is reserved.

Iain,

Which Tartan is yours? There seems to be a bit of a black 'n blue theme...

Don't forget the red suspenders, try to speak the language when entering customs area and do, under no circumstances, get hold of a stapler.
