Default 8th Annual Vancouver Island diyFEST 2011

Edit: Event pictures and comments start here

August 20th in the usual place. (up the mountain in Victoria, BC out in the forest at my place of residence/workplace)

Being #8 we keep getting more organized each year.

Some people have been making this a weekend long affair so we expect some people to arrive Friday night and not leave till Sunday.

People camp, stretch out on the deck, or claim floor space in the living room.

Hi Dave,

I hope to be able to attend and maybe I'll grab one or two or... others as well.

I hope to have a surprise for Don the Doorman! (Think APTS)

Best Regards,
TerryO

I am wondering if these might be the right ones to bring this year? You guys need something big and manly outside right? (Other than Terry O of course)

Why does it sound more like a
threat than a "surprise"!
Looking forward to seeing everyone.
Best, Don

APTS is the acronym for TO's fancy name for bondo.

Hi Cal,

Those hearing aids look uncomfordable! (yes, it's a brand new word)

Will you be arriving in your 1/2 ton Tardis?

Best Regards,
Terry

But Terry, they are comfortable. Form fitting in fact. They don't change shape but when used properly they will reform your head to fit.

SSShhh! The speakers are the TARDIS. The backs are hinged.
