    Default Another DFW meeting

    Alright. I'm finally planning on hosting a get-together for us TX guys. I live about 10 miles East of the North I-35E and I-35W split in Denton. Any and all Polkies who want to come are welcome (as well as any gear you want to show off). I'd love to get my ears on some amps since that's probably my next big upgrade in the system.


    Date: Oct. 1st (can be moved if there's too much conflict)
    Time: Early afternoon
    BYOB


    I've got a 14 month old son, so the earlier we start, the better it is. Everyone is welcome as long as they want, but we might have to watch the volume knob after dark. I'll throw some burgers on the grill for a late lunch and plan for enough to munch on through the day. Donations and/or food items brought would be greatly appreciated.

    As for 2 channel gear, right now I have Peerless M10's, Peerless RTA12's, LSi7's, a Marantz 2216, and a Sansui 1000. I have a 14x12 room that can be demo'd in as well as a larger loft/downstairs living room that can be used as well.

    Hey Mister.

    This sounds great. I do not have much of anything to bring except myself. I would like to pitch in for this get together. Burgers, Steaks, Wings, Beer, Crown 16, Diapers, you name it. You still have my number?

    Halen, I'm pretty sure I don't. My phone broke and I lost a lot of numbers. Nice idea on diapers but not the idea lol. I'm just trying to minimize the food expense on my end.

    Russ, I have no idea. Is there a reason she should be?

    Everyone bring your drink and ten bucks, simple, we can order up some pies.

    Skipper, I just want to meet the woman that can actually tolerate you, she must be a saint. I've never met a real saint, other than George's and Troy's wives.

    Look forward to hearing those. Someone make sure Marvin and Jim catch wind. I'll shoot them PM's, but I don't have anyone's numbers anymore. We need some new blood too...

    As long as there's a TV with the OU game on somewhere, I'll be happy, and even if there isn't, I'll get by. See you then.

    Yes. They needed some TLC. I've given them some so far, but still quite a bit needed.

    10/1 starting at noon or later. I really don't care when you show up as long as it isn't before noon.

    Going to try and make it. Will depend a bit on work, but right it looks clear.

    I can bring the easy-as-PI speakers. I also think I have a couple amps that aren't hooked up that I can bring.

    Looks like I'll be able to make it late afternoon depending on when/if the Rangers are playing. I have tickets to the game that could be Saturday depending on if they have home field for the first round or not.

    I got the easy as Pi's from SucksToBeMe. He might have gotten them from you, I can't remember what he told me ... or were you talking about the Audes?

    I had them built a long time ago by a freind of mine. You are the fourth local guy to have them. Pffft I know I will never get the Audes back. THAT is one I should not have sold. ;)

    Of course.





    So, got a few ideas for food and you guys can let me know what you think:

    1. Chicken Fajitas w/ fixings, chips and salsa to munch.
    2. Burgers w/ fixings, chips, maybe some dips to go along.
    3. Order some pizzas and be done.

    #2 and 3 would probably include a pizza dip my wife makes that wouldn't make it through the night. I don't mind grilling, especially if the weather is nice like it has been.
