    Hey Aaron we got make some plans. E-mail me your hotel info. I gotta get on the horn tomorrow and get something booked. Bring the Nak along if we will have time to listen to it.

    We'll see how the weekend plays out. If there's any chance I can sneak away, even for a little while, I'll swing by. I just don't want to say I'll be there and not show up, so I'm playing it safe.

    I was not really planning on bringing the 7's but if anyone want to see them let me know. I am not sure how they sound compared to 7's with the sides still on, but if someone else can bring a pair of 7's, we can compare...

    Anyone bringing an OutLaw 990?

    Michael,

    Bring them; I'd love to listen to the 7's and the 9's. I am taking my TAD tube amps to see how it matches with them.

    Ricardo, I'm charging $10 for each 15 minute listen to my LSi 9's. You provide the speaker wire :p :D :p :D :) :D .

    I know, but it bums me out! We are definitely going to have a good time, though. I've had lots of recommendations from colleagues on where to visit. My boss is even loaning me her navigation system, so if I do find time to make it, I won't waste any time getting lost! :D

    I just booked a room at the Country Inn & Suites for Friday/Saturday nights. As soon as someone sends me the address for the fest, I'm locked and loaded! Doug.

    I'm locked also. DKG999 are sharing a room Saturday night. I'm riding along with a_mattison Saturday morn and leaving with dkg999 Sunday morn. I decided I've waited to long for this get together to let a thing like WORK interfere. I'll just have to put some time in on Sunday afternoon so I won't feel guilty about the rest of my department putting in extra time. ;)

    My brother was originally going to come as well, but he can't make it so take him off the confirmed list.

    Is anybody going to be disappointed if I don't bring my newly modded 5b's? It's either the LSi 9's OR the 5b's, and I've decided HTRookie will not let me in unless I have the 9's in tow. I really don't feel like lugging around both pairs but if there is a solid interest in the 5b's I'll bring them. I figure we will probably have enough speakers anyways. Let me know.

    Yes ladies and gentlemen...only one day to go!!!!!!!!!!

    I am not only locked....but also lost the key

    Haven't seen anything from Jason (The zombie boy) and Noel (ND13). Noel has not posted much lately though. What's up guys? We are close enough to work something out and take a ride with me.......I am also willing to share the room as long as it is not Dorokusai :D :D

    H9, I agree with you; leave the M5's ;)
