Back home safe and 'sound'. Trailer unloaded and returned.

Thanks very much once again to Dave and Ruth for being great hosts for this event. I still have much to do before my honey's smile returns, so I best get on with it and hopefully others can chime in and tell a story or two while I am trying to make sense of the mess.

Hey,

First upload failed. I tried to do it from my phone....

I had an excellent time last night. It's always great to see the people on this forum in person.

Thank you to Dave and Ruth for hosting. The food and setting are always top notch.

I'll post some more thoughts later on when I have a few minutes to gather my thoughts.

Kyle

Home safe, finally. Ferry traffic and border crossing both real smooth. Traffic north of Everett was TERRIBLE.

Anyway, had a great time and enjoyed all the conversation, music and friendship. Thanks to all, especially Dave, Ruth and Chris. Got to enjoy a little more time with Cal on the ferry ride.

I'll see if I have any decent pictures to post tomorrow. A couple of folks also asked for the attached schematics.

FHXLs?

perhaps attendees to this get together could address this query? (i.e. thread post 251)

Frugel-Horn XL for Alpair 10.3/10p

Hello my friends:
All is good up Island. Stopped for a family visit in Duncan for the afternoon. Got home around 7:30pm. My wife was not as impressed with my winnings as I am. "Not another set of speakers? Stop buying those raffle tickets or win something useful."

Hmmmmmm, Oh well, she will get over it.

Thank you again to Ruth and Dave for letting us gather on your mountain. Here is my impression summary:
Best Amp: John's 6b4 PP
Best new driver: Chris's MAOP7 (the little white ceramic one in the horn)
Best Buddy: Cal
Biggest sound: Cal's "small" out door set up
Coolest moment: Daniel decided @ 10:30 Saturday night to make an amp from the junk pile and in two hours it sounded pretty good.

Lots of great talk and good times.
Thanks to all. I am already looking forward to next year

Maybe she'll change her tune when she hears the FHXL's you build with those drivers.

Maybe we can get a "toaster" for next years raffle. Would that be more "useful"?
