    First of all, am I too late to participate in this? Secondly, someone earlier in the thread wanted to compare some pre/pro's and wanted to know if anyone had an Outlaw Audio pre/pro. I believe they wanted to cmpare Rotel and Nad maybe? I will have the Model 990 at this date.. Last of all, would anyone be attending this that is from TN? Car pool maybe?

    Not from TN, (only about 45 min away from the event) but I wanted to compare the pre/pro's. If you could bring the outlaw, we will have the Rotel (opus has one) and the NAD (I have the T163). Would make for a fun shootout to see what we prefer with the LSi speakers....

    Come on up...

    You are about 45 mins from TN? Well, do to my driving situation at the moment, I cant drive, (until 2016) I would have to catch a ride with someone. Or, I could fly up there.. Is there an airport close? O'hare the closest?

    Sorry, I am 45min away from Bloomington where it is being held.

    There are 2 airports (of any size) closer than ohare (but you will probably have to fly through O'hare or St. Louis) Bloomington will be closest to the event (it is being held there.) Airport code of BMI

    Peoria is close as well (about an hour away or so) and you could easily get a ride from there. (I can pick up you or anyone else there if needed) Airport code of PIA

    Hey Outlaw......before you buy any tickets, we all want to know why you cannot drive until 2016...nothing personal, but that, combined with your name...well...maybe there's something that would make me not want to receive you in my house????? ;)

    I completely understand.. Well, unfortunately I drank and drove one too many times! I have had 4 DUI's in the last 5 years.. Thus, making me a habitual offender.. That is an automatic loss of license for 10 years.. I also did not consent to the chemical tests (thought this was to my benefit/ man was I wrong) and this adds an additional year to that. I have not driven for over two years to this point. To address the second portion of your question, "TennesseeOutlaw" the "Outlaw" comes from Outlaw Audio.. I just signed up for their "club" or whatever it is, and I signed up for Club Polk the same day.. Just thought it would be easier to remember..

    FYI - I graduated High School with an Academics Honors Diploma. GPA 3.6

    I have three years of college; however, I cant decide on a degree.

    I have never been in trouble for anything in my life except of course the DUI's.
    Just bad judgement calls/being in the wrong place at the wrong time/not learning my lesson the first time.

    Im sure just about everyone in this forum has driven a time or two when they most definately should not have.

    I hope that clarifies it up for you, and I will understand if I am not welcomed.. I havent been around on this site for very long and will not feel "86'd" for lack of a better term.. I plan on being on this site from this day forward, and if it takes time to build friendships and trust (as it should) that is not a problem with me.

    Hello TennesseeOutlaw,

    I would recommend you not purchasing any plane tickets as of yet. The date is tenative as of now, and might change as we get closer to June which is still quit a ways away. If you have any more questions you can PM "Halo" who is actually doing all the coordinating for this gathering. FYI, I'm just the host.;)

    Also... Be advised that there is limited space to the event and the numbers might get slimmed down to a "first come, first serve" basis as we get closer. All depends upon on who bails out and who signed with my coordinator.:)

    Mike

    Sounds good.. I had no immediate plans on buying tickets.. Just wanted to get an idea of prices.. Actually, I would be spending potential audio equipment money; nonetheless, I would love to meet everyone.. There seems to be quite a few people in this forum that are very audio savvy.. I have always had a very nice stereos and then HT's, but I am nowhere near some of you guys.. I may be up in Indiana (Hometown) around that time.. Thought if I was possibly I could catch a ride with Zombie. My hometown is about 30 mins from Louisville.. I have yet to speak with him either.. Plenty of time before the actual crunchtime, so we/I will just play it by ear.

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Josh,

    Thanks for the story; that's too bad you didn't ponderate the consequences of DUI...man...10 years without driving for sure makes you learn the lesson :)

    I agree a very harsh lesson. No judging here. There are many in your situation who say 'eff it and drive anyways. So sounds like you are willing to take the consequences and move on.

    And yes, we'd all be fibbing if we said we never drove while drinking.
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    You're telling me! My first one was dropped all together, so I actually have only three on my record.. Thank god I had a good lawyer everytime, cause the second, third, etc etc are felonies.. I have zero felonies and have spent no longer than time served in jail. (12-24 hours per instance)

    sorry. i have to point out the obvious sometimes. No one else will do it. ;) :D

    Believe it or not, being behind the bar instead of sittin' in front of it is a very very good thing.. It keeps me from drinking.. I would love my job in a heartbeat if I was caught drinking behind the bar.. I work at a corporate owned Buffalo Wild Wings... That sh*t don't fly, and I have been there several years.. I would be gone in a blink of an eye.. We cannot even come in on our days off and drink!! (which I think is retarded) I had collegitus for several years after I stop going to college, or I wouldnt be in the situation im in now.. Not being able to drive for 11 years really sobers you up in a lot more ways than one.. I have a much better understanding of "freedoms" in which I wrongly confused with "rights." It has been tough, but I will persevere in the long run.. BTW, I just got my new K&N air filter for my scooter(LOL) and I got her up to 51 MPH!!!! Colder than hell sometimes, but ya do what ya gotta do!

    My .02....

    I think at this point, y'all need to clarify a few things as, time is going to start ticking away.

    1. Nail down a date....if you want folks to commit, they need a no **** date.
    2. Venue: I'm gathering it's in Bloomington, IL? Ok, what's the basic layout of the abode? How many demo areas available
    3. Gear. What sort of setups are going to be available?
    4. Logistics/lodging. The locals need to chime in with the lay of the land

    I don't mean this to be critical, however, at this point I think the host(s) need to start nailing down concrete specifics. For the rest of you guys, quit dicking up the thread, It's tough enough to decipher the pertinent facts in this thread (which should be largely informational) without wading through 8 pages of pissing matches (which I'm a big fan of but a thread like this needs to stay ON TOPIC)

    If I could offer any advice on hosting an event, there really isn't much to it. The biggest thing is, in my mind, is the host HAS lay out what the guests can expect. Obviously, there is flexibility in terms of gear and so forth but if people know what to expect up front, it makes for a better experience

    Hello everyone,

    Please accept my apologies for not responding for such a long time as I've been busy processing out of the military(a painful process!:( ). I finally made it home lastnight after traveling in my old reliable minivan about 2100 miles, another painful process to say the least!

    Now, let's straighten out the confusion on what date our great Godfather "Halo" has set for our highly anticipated gathering. The date is still set for the last weekend of June, it hasn't changed. I believe some of us got thrown off when I used the word "tenative". Not to be pessimistic, the term was used rather loosely to mean in case of any emergencies that aroused the date would change. I believe we still all concur to this date?

    Mike

    Troy-

    Everything has been discussed and brought up in this thread. Since you are too damn lazy to read through it;) , I'll reiterate myself...

    1. Done. It was discussed and nailed down about a few months ago.

    2. There will be at least three rigs up and running at once. I do have a finished basement which could house a few more, but then we run into a few accomodation issues... I don't have an elevator.

    3. A whole bunch of gear ... I'm not wading through all the pages, but it has been discussed.

    4. There are several hotels close by, anything you find on the internet(by doing a search) in Bloomington is going to be close. If you find some in Normal, there will be a little more driving of maybe a few miles. Anything off of "Veteran's Parkway" will be your best bet.

    Anything else I'm missing? I believe everything has been discussed, but if anyone has any questions please feel free to PM me or Halo.

    Mike

    I could hold on to them for you if Brett could get them to me in Chicago. Lisle is about 35 miles outside of Chicago. I hardly ever go out to the suburbs. Let me know if you want to try to work something out.

    I could do that for you. Lisle is like 25 minutes away from me. I'll send a PM to you and Brett with contact info.
