Default DIY meet in UK 13th June

Wasn't sure where to put this, but here seems appropriate, as the majority of systems at these events have some form of FR driver on the end of them, mostly OBs, horns, MLTLs, Fonkens etc.

Anyway, it's at the Social Club of the Eggborough powerstation (yes, really) on the A19 north of M62 junction 34 on Saturday 13th of June. Huge space, nice & relaxed approach, lots of fine valve-amps etc too. It's one of a cycle of meets held once or twice a year -first time we've been back to Eggborough for a few months, but it makes for a spectacular setting; I well remember stepping outside the door & coming face to face with the gigantic cooling tower less than a hundred yards away. See attached. No complaints about the power quality either...

The buffet is 5 a head, the cost of the room is 100 for the day, which we all share equally between us. Non-profit I hasten to add; we're just a bunch of enthusiasts & I figured some people here might be interested. Anyone's welcome, whether they bring any gear or just fancy a day out to see & hear some interesting gear; just stick a post in below to let us know.

Only just noticed this! I really want to get to one of these meets at some point. I also would have some drivers for sale. At the moment though, I don't have a car and that's quite a long travel from Swindon/Bristol area

Sounds like you have a good turnout though, be sure to take plenty of photos

most of us have tried or owned every thing else... and thats what we are happy with

there was not many amps over 5 watts too..

a good day was had, the standards keep getting better and better..
there was lots of new kit there.. i was suprised by the amount..

we appear to be quite a productive group... sometimes

cheers
steve
