The firehouse will bring back fond memories of 2007.

I grew up in San Mateo, but have since moved to LA. I would like to come up for the meeting since there is not an identifiable similar interest group in SoCal. In looking at your posts, I thought about the San Mateo County Fairgrounds where MakerFare is held. I know that they have several buildngs of different sizes, but I do not know what the costs would be. Just a thought

We would love it if you attended Burning Amp. Hope to see you there.

Thanks for the lead on the Fairgrounds. In this case: too BIG! There are several buildings that can be rented but they are HUGE! This tends to result in an echoing cavern type environment that is not suitable to audio. It's better if there are multiple "medium" size (e.g. between 10'x20' and 20'x40') rooms with modest ceiling height. The space(s) should accommodate multiple playback systems operating at the same time. If there is carpet and some acoustical tile or other abatement on the walls or ceiling this is a plus.

Charlie,
Can you give us an idea of what the budget is for the space? Bill

VENUE UPDATE:
We are now pushing 99.9% likelihood that Burning Amp 2016 will be on 13 NOV 2016 at Fort Mason, 9am-5pm! Yay!

Acoustical Abatement of demo rooms:
Although we still have some of those moving blankets that we used in the past to improve the acoustics, is there anyone (or a group of people) interested in DIY-ing, supplying, and then removing/storing some acoustic panels? A number of panels made by enclosing 2" thick rigid acoustic material (see link below) could work well and would be easy to store when not in use (or use it in your home!):
http://www.atsacoustics.com/item--Ow...f-6--1004.html

The panels would do a lot more for the rooms than the moving blankets... it would be nice if we could find a local place that could supply this material so that shipping costs would be reduced. Maybe we could do a "group buy"? I could use a couple of these in my house.

Supposedly they are processing my deposit payment today, which means we definitely have the Firehouse and meeting rooms at Fort Mason for November 13.

Please feel free to share the event announcement freely.

Also: we are looking for someone to do a modest web site redesign. If you can contribute some time to working on Burningamp.org and you have the necessary Fu for that kind of thing, please contact me.

Start getting those projects ready!

Any chance a future one could be held on the East coast?

Or why not even a Burning Amp Road Show?
