Hi HIPCHECK,

I didn't contact Bill directly just on the thread...should I? Another question, does anyone else usually bring a girlfriend, spouse etc? My girlfriend was thinking about coming and just hanging out in the city while I'm with you guys. Just curious. I'm really looking forward to coming.

I have an idea for the meeting btw. I was wondering if anyone might be interested in bringing a favorite hand tool(s) they couldn't live without for electrical or speaker building etc. I know I am always looking for something that might work better than what I have. I am in the market for a good pair of wire crimpers right now if anyone has a suggestion.

Take care

Thom

I don't know about the wife/girlfriend thing. I can not remember anything but the guys to be honest, however, there is many things to do for the women ( SPA DAY). Most people are local or a few hours away and come down on Saturday. If you are going to use his boarding option he will need some prior notice but if you are just coming down to visit and leave then no need to contact him.

As for wire strippers I have plenty of these I could share:

I just heard that the Hot Springs event is scheduled for Saturday, July 12. I've forgotten which building is being used, or the address. I know it was a tech school? Thom, if you are there contact me and we'll discuss getting together. We have a fellow in Little Rock interested in doing the same.

Got your text Steve...appreciate you keeping in touch. I still plan on attending but still don't know if I'll stay overnight though. Do you know when the cutoff date is for staying at the school?

Take care,

Thom

I hate to inform you guys but I'm not going to be able to attend the Hot Springs event tomorrow. I am seriously bummed about this as I have been really looking forward to meeting some like minded DIY audio enthusiast like myself here in AR.

The left rear axle is going out on my car. This is the 2nd time this has happened. Unfortunately, I will have to wait while it is replaced.

Maybe we can have another more informal meetup later this year or if anyone else wants to get together around central Arkansas sometime just let me know.

Take care and hope you all have a great time and hope to see you next year at least.

I hate to hear that!

You are not the only guy who got a last minute surprise or work dropped in their lap!

Default So...How was the meetup??

I am still pretty pissed that I had to miss this. Lol..yes I will get over it. Anyways, I hope someone does a nice write up or if someone has a video they can post, that would be great.

I hope you had a great turnout and still are having a good time. And in the immortal words of AC/DC...have a drink on me!
