To save you looking back a few pages:

Saturday, Nov. 27 lunch at Tucker's Marketplace in Burlington.
I'm sure we'll settle on an exact time as the soiree approaches.

Cheers,
Jeff

Default Suitable venue for a proper DIY meet found!

Guy,

I can't make the Tucker's Market meet but found a venue that will work for a proper DIY meeting. It's a Naval Veterans Hall in Burlington and will cost about $200 for the entire hall or $100 for half the hall - we could easily get about 10 table top displays and a listening area set up in half the available space.

What good is a DIY meet without any gear?

That sounds good Jaimo except to modify your question a bit I'd ask. What good is a DIY audio meet without decent room acoustics? Might want to check out that hall first before any contracts are signed or money changes hands.

Now if this were to occur in a real hall setup like that with tables available why not also turn the thing into an audio gear swap meet? Plan the thing for a whole day with an early break to pack up and then off to Mother Truckers for supper. If lunch was taken mid day then there would be a security risk with the unatended gear so my suggestion takes care of that. Attendees could bring their own brown bag for personal lunch snack or whatever.

Man that's RIGHT by my apartment...

I like the idea of a swap meet a lot. I don't have much gear (that I'd want to show off at least), my 'showy' projects are both still in permanent money-related stasis. We're getting some good momentum and interest going here now. Great to see!

Default Navy Veterans Club

I may have mis-spoken when I referred to the Club as a "hall" - it is more like a restaurant with two sections - Acoustics while not great will be better than the average hotel room that many hi-fi shows use. (we held a private function at the Vets club over the weekend and the PA system sounded okay)

A swap meet and table top displays of our DIY projects along with an area to set up systems for auditioning will work out fine.

Given my trade show experience, I will be happy to help co-ordinate an event if there's sufficient interest.
