I know right! That's like saying Zidane taught me how to play football.

Man, I wish I was closer to SF. It must have been a great event!

It was kinda funny, I'd ask friends if they wanted to come and some would just look blank and say "Why would anyone want to do that?"
The rest were: "please please please let me go!" Sadly, we only had kits, for 24 people, but we had food and drink for about 35

I made my excellent spaghetti sauce and we had plenty of beer and wine, and a cake to continue celebrating Papa's birthday! Same great location
at the Brock farm as Speaker Camp 4 years ago where we made BOFU BIB speakers.

Pass donated most of the internal parts, and the power supplies. The Brock's and I, mostly Nelson Brock, machined the chassis' mostly from scrap aluminum. They still needed
scrubbing and polishing and assembly though..

Everybody had a good time, that's for sure. And it's great that, at the end of a day, all amps worked as designed. Congrats to everybody and thanks to Mr. Pass and organizers crew for their care for DIY community !

You wrote: "and we had plenty of beer and wine", and later may have tutored a novice DYIer by saying "I believe this 3 K resistor should go to the Source of the Mosfet and not its Gate!" Clearly, like many diyAudiophilers, I would have loved to attend, meet Mr Pass and you all.

Happy B-day Mr. Pass
