We'll need lots of volunteers this year. One Marshall for each room minimum, preferably two, plus my posse who swarm over any problem and solve it.. and you get a red shirt! To be official and be sure to get the shirt you must be at the site by 8:30 AM

Some Volunteers, More encouraged:

Mark, I'd be happy to go where you put me. Will bring the jazz module speakers and the Randall museum gear along with a tt.
I'll bring a running system. Would be nice to be able to show up a touch earlier for setup.
Best regards, Bill

Wavebourn 14th July 2011 04:55 AM

Mark. do you think there will be some interest in guitar amplifiers this year?

CharlieLaub 20th July 2011 05:23 PM

Would like spot in the Tesla room
I am planning on bringing a large, "modular" 3-way active loudspeaker that I am currently building. Judging from your descriptions of the various rooms, it looks like this would best fit in to the Tesla room.

Will reservations for spots in the room be formalized at some point???

to answer your question, we start packing up at 7PM. By then the excitement has usually died down, but this year we'll have BEER again, so people may well stick around. We have to be out by 8..

Really sounds fantastic. Hope you all have a great time.

slomatt 30th August 2011 06:34 AM
