Thanx to Geek and the rest of the organizers. What a great first time event. My wife and I had a good time checking out the audio gear and abundance of vinyl at the show, and met some other audio-philes..
Kudos to all and we are looking forward to the next event.
Graham

Yes, it was a great day with so many people there at times you had to go out to change/clear your mind (or get a burger or sausage). Special thanks to Karl and Gregg for all there setup and organization, to Mark Fenlon for his talk and to Al for the many hours of preparation, testing, etc. for the new speaker kits some of which will be available shortly.

Also special thanks to Mark Audio, Parts Express, Solen, Meniscus, Madisound and Classic Valve for their contributions to the raffle. If you won we'd appreciate feedback on how you use your prize.

Looking forward to next time, likely in a larger venue.

Appreciated meeting some customers face to face for the first time and trust that what we presented will be of interest and lead to sales.

I too had a great time and was impressed with the turn out and enthusiasm of the crowd. It takes a lot to put on a show like that so hats off to Karl and all the others who invested their time to pull this off.

When I drove around the corner, I see a bunch of people standing outside and smoke billowing out from the back of the building. Hmmm...someone must have cranked it up to 11 and I was even there yet. Wait, that isn't magic smoke, that's a BBQ. I think I'm gonna like this place!

Lot's of diyAudio persons there. It's nice to put faces and real names to those you only know from these pages.

In the raffle, I happened to win a set of Solen donated, Airborne RT20021 AMT tweeters which I hope to use soon.

From Gregg the Geek at Classic Valve, I won a hot rod kit for a Dynaudio ST-70 amplifier, including the driver and power supply boards.

From CSS I purchased a pair of Markaudio CHR 70's to replace the CSS EL70's in the bedroom speakers. I was told they have a hotter top end which I think will suit my ears better.

Will let you know how it goes.

Thanks for the great event.
Was shocked so many people made the winding trip to Cultas Lake but was well worth the nice drive.

Not sure of a head count but was well over 100 people for sure that made the event a hit.

Sorry never got around to see everyone I was in our area all day till the end of the day.

Having Mark Fenlon from MARK AUDIO stop by and make a speech plus some info into new driver development coming from his was a hit.Thanks Mark for the time you took to spead out of your travel plans.The day worked out just by chance as Mark was stopped in Vancouver on his way back to China then Austrailia.

Was a very busy day and as usual with the event like this swapping out speakers talking and listening then swapping out for another set was a chore for sure.BUT I LOVE IT

I took just a few pictures below sorry never got to take any more if others can post some more pictures that would be good..

Just a few hrs till the show

An audiofest wouldn't have been the same without you, Cal!

Gregg, you did a great job as (sous host?) Anyway you slice it, it was more than I expected by a few rungs on the ladder and I'm glad to hear there are plans to use a larger venue.

Looks like the event was a blast! Now if only we could get something similar to this in little ol' Nova Scotia

Well, it seemed the only reason it hadn't been done here was a lack of will since the last RAW festival was held. Someone has to be the first to "Git 'er done!"

Robert, it could be a community hall in Nova Scotia.
