Question DIY Events in Eastern U.S.

Does anyone know if there are any DIY Audio events on the eastern coast of US?

Any interest in starting a once a year event, if there isn't?

Default NE DIY Groups

As part of their regular activities, The Connecticut Audio Society (CAS) has DIY meetings fairly regularly.

https://sites.google.com/site/thecon.../announcements

Just had a "Stereo 70" shootout last Saturday where members brought and compared their modded 70's - that (22 members attended) apparently generated interest in a DIY (passive?) preamp shootout. Other topics have included DIY music servers, etc.

There is also the NNETG (Northern New England Tube Group) "loosely" based in the Boston area.

Parts Express has the Midwest Audio Fest once a year. Well attended with a DIY speaker contest.

Wish we had something a little farther south.

All it takes is an individual to take the lead in response to gentle nudging from those interested.

diyAtlanta got together several years and may do so again.

I think Pigeon Forge (between Sevierville and Gatlinburg, TN and near the Smokies) would be a great location. Plenty for the significant others to do while we show and tell about our creations.

I live in Southern Maine, an hour and change to the Boston area.
The problem is one of commitment by someone to pull something together - and that can be hard if nobody has a space in a good spot.

Gatlinburg is an interesting choice. If we get bored with speakers, we can go to Dollywood!

I keep thinking a show in the Raleigh-Cary area would be great. Lot's of folks there, and it's 1/2 way between Maine and Miami, for those who want to travel.

I would happily attend, but i can see how it is a BIG pain to put together.

There is a "DIY New England" speaker group that meets in Massachusetts now and then. Here is a link to their webs site:

Thanks for all the input guys. I was thinking about the Wash DC area, Maryland or NC. I'd like it to be in Philadelphia, but that would be selfish of me!

I guess it would take deciding on a central place, then finding a facility with many rooms (for as cheap as possible). I guess, more importantly, finding out if there is real interest in such an event.
