Default Seattle DIY@ Adire (duplicate post)

Over on the Madisound forum there was a complaint that there wasn't any DIY meets in the area. Given that VSAC isn't going to happen and "The Puget Sound" was scheduled to be on the alternating year , so as not to compete with VSAC, folks in the Pacific Northwest were stuck without a venue to display their masterpieces.
Dispair no longer, Dan Wiggins has offered to fill the void by hosting the Seattle DIY event on Saturday, October 15. If you haven't met Dan, he's a pretty nice guy......in fact, if his character weren't marred by his nearly insane jealosy of my groundbreaking speaker designs.......well OK, I'm here to help Dan, not to tell the truth :^)
He did ask me to get the word out, or else my Radio Shack SPL meter (left at Adire by accident) gets used for testing his Parthenon Subwoofer!

Seriously Dan hosts a great event and everyone seems to have a great time.
Hope to see you there,
TerryO

So if you're interested, here's some of the details posted on the Madisound Forum by Dan:

Quote:
2006 196th Street SW, Suite 102, Lynnwood, WA 98036. Exit 181B off of I-5. We'll run from Noon to 6-7 PM or so...

If there are commercial vendors who come, they'll be limited to 2 speaker systems. I want to see what the DIYers have!

Electronics will be welcome, too... We have two complete sets of electronics (SACD/DVD player, preamp, amplifier), but could use a 3rd. Anyone have some cool electronics they want to bring for a 3rd rack?

Judging - we can do a "best of show" type judging if you like.

Well, I WAS waiting for a personalized, embossed invitation on satin paper but I'll settle for this.

What's the protocol for these things? Can people simply show up and listen, or is it assumed that everybody there will have a project to show off and will have made arrangements ahead of time?

Sorry if these are foolish questions, but I've never had one of these things pop up in my area, at a convenient time, and I have no idea how they work.

Heatmiser: These events are low key... show up with a couple beers and some ears and you are part of the party. ;-)

I'll make an appearance and bring my new bare MDF creations. I'll bring along a UCD based amplifier and a couple door prizes too.

I regret that I will not be able to attend but CSS will donate a pair of FR125S to the prize pool.

Does anyone know if pre-registration will be required, as I believe it was a few years ago when Dan hosted a similar event?

No registration..... just show up.

I'm sure Terry O will announce more information just before the event as a reminder. He is the "Grand Po-Bah" of the event.

Kevin,
I noticed from your last post that in are back living in Indiana. That's quite a commute just to come to the meet, once again proving that you're the hardest working man in audio:^)

FYI: I'm not the Grand Po-Bah of this event, merely a humble servant of "The Sound."

However, I will be attending the meet in fulfillment of my solemn duty as The Great Appreciator.

I'll be posting a few more details shortly.
Best Regards,
TerryO
