Default Anyone up for a UK diyAudio Meet?

edit by V: *** http://uk.diyaudio.com/festival07 ***

Hi folks

Well, this is just a provisional idea, but it's about time we all got together to listen to each other's stuff and drink some beer.

We would probably be looking at some time in the summer, located somewhere relatively central. So, if you're interested, have something wonderful you want to show the world, just fancy meeting other like minded folks, have a venue available, or whatever, post away.

I'd be up for it, especially if it's that hall near Ant. Summer will give me time to get moving with some projects!

Sounds like a great idea! How about near (time and location) the NVCF, for those who have to travel?

Count me in!

Will it be a swap-meet as well?

PS for moderators

What about starting a new section on the forum for meetings like this ??

This is so well buried. I only stumbled onto it by chance!!!!!

I'm up for it if it is near-by. If not, then I might have to befriend PinkMouse with some beer and cookies and scrounge a lift hehe!

I'm about to build some small coaxial floorstanders soon so I could drag them along, maybe.

That is an excellent idea - I am up for it, assuming the venue isn't the south coast.....

Points roughly in order:

NVCF is in April, that might be a bit soon

Swap meet - possibly, what do people want?

Good idea on the new topic, we'll discuss it.

I'm sure we can sort something out regarding lifts, Graeme Finlayson is close as well and he might be up for it.

Sharpi31, how about Lands End?

Back in an hour or so, I'm going to watch Ronnie O'Sullivan play now.

Hello PM,

Nice idea. I might be up for a meetup, it would be great to put some faces to names I regularly see on here, such as your own.

I'd not like to drive any more than 3 hours ideally, but being in Sheffield I can reach most of England easily enough, especially the way I drive.

It looks like many of you are down South, but to be fair our Scottish friends, we'd need to have something no lower than the midlands or so, lol. Or else it's a terrible drive (or expensive train ride).

Simon
