Default Puget Sound DIY Meet -August 29th

The Puget Sound DIY Get-Together August 29th, 2015 starting at 10am - Mercer Island
This is not a contest as such, but rather a "run what ya brung" meet, that is open to all interested parties that would like to display, view or listen to DIY Audio equipment. The event will be held at:

The Mercer Island Congregational Church
4545 Island Crest Way
Mercer Island, WA 98040

A Map and directions may be found at: Congregational Church of Mercer Island Map: RSCDS Seattle, Washington, Royal Scottish Country Dance Society

The meet is scheduled for August 29th, 2015 starting at 10am for the public. (If you have items to display, setup starts at 9:30am or so). We ask all interested parties that have gear they would like to show to let us know ASAP, in order to know how many tables, etc. we will need. If you bring bookshelf speakers, you may want to bring speaker stands from home. Hope to see you there!

Best Regards,
TerryO

Hi All,

Ok, just a bit of a preview. I'll be bringing some of my "stuff" for show and tell. Right now it looks like a Passively-Active Linestage, a Tube Head-Phone Amp (& Pre-Amp) and perhaps a pair of speakers or two.

I may squeeze in a few other things before the big day! Anyone else have an idea what they may bring?

Best Regards,
TerryO

Hi Terry,

Plan to bring a prototype finished design which may be the first product for a new company.

Perhaps something borrowed or sample kit designs.

Bob

Cal,

When you say: "...he's another one of those Crazy Canucks."
You make it sound as if there may be a few more of them around, when in fact it's proved to be a rare occation when you come across one that isn't. Am I mistaken, or isn't there actually a Canadian Coin that honors the Canadian People? I believe it's called a "Loonie"

Now, now, those Canucks are great people. I've spent a lot of time up on the island and it's been enjoyable every time.

Dave,

The Primitive Natives are certainly clever in their own seemingly Rustic Manner. They will act quite friendly at first, perhaps even offer you their very own igloo to sleep in! You have to watch them like a hawk, all the while exercising Magical Ju-Ju and displaying Totems and Symbols of Intense Mystical Powers to hold them in check! It's not easy dealing with these Primitive People, as they are not predictable at all. One of the first warning signs is after they have been drinking their raw native beverages, they will start to disrobe and walking around semi-naked often waving Torches, Sledge Hammers and (Their Favorite) Large Wreaking Bars. What can follow that, is too awful to even relate....

Anyway, you've been warned...........

However, it will be my task to show our visitor the domestic advantages of modern American society.

Captain "X"

I take your point Terry.

I did have an interesting experience in Victoria the day of the USA/Canada Olympic hockey final though.
I think there were definitely some raw native beverages being consumed then.

I always find it interesting browsing Costco when up north and checking out the aisles of hockey gear. You don't see that here, aye.

Anyways, sorry for the threadjack......back to your regularly scheduled programme.

Dave.

this is great! i went to one at the church many years ago (I live in Duvall) and haven't been able to make it since due to summer vacas w/kids and such. i'll bring a pair of Dennis Murphy Usher two-ways that i love, was thinking about my Elsinore MKVs but only briefly as they are way too heavy to think about travelling
looking forward to it.
Scott
