  • DakotaDIY 2017 June 9-10th

    I plan on securing the same venue I used in 2015 - absent that, there is a pretty nice room at AARP where Mrs. JR is employed. It should be somewhat competitive in the sound quality arena compared to the last venue, although I was pleasantly surprised at the acoustics of said venue - and the comfort level with the abundance of easy chairs and sofas was hard to argue. On the other hand, there is guest wifi at AARP.

    As always at a MAC event - minimal rules will be in place. Don't be a dick, don't steal all the available time, everybody gets a chance to play, no competition, play the house track, have fun, feedback forms are available but not mandatory - if you want feedback I suggest you personally solicit it and hand out the feedback forms before playing your speakers.

    We will have door prizes, and of course the lovely Mrs. JR will be on-hand as morale officer. She will also smack down anyone violating the rules.

    No specific theme - but I do plan on exhibiting another build using vintage Ratshack drivers. Not sure what else I will have there - see what I can get done between now and then.

    I will work with BK and JP to get the email/Facebook updates going.

    See ya soon!

    I had hoped to make InDIYana and DIY Iowa this year. Indy isn't looking so good for me at this point so I really hope I can make DakotaDIY again this year. I had a blast in 2015. It's a LONG drive for me but worth it.

                      I have a feeling Johnny's epic beans will be a staple from here on out

                          Arranging a discount for a Ramada Inn at the moment - we will be getting a rate of $109 for double queen rooms. I am guaranteeing five rooms booked, and when you call tell them it is for Midwest Audio Club. It isn't much off their standard rate, but it is a bit of a discount.

                          It is very accessible to the venue, as well. Call by May 26th or we lose the rate. Sioux Falls fills up in a hurry, so call sooner than later.

                          Obviously, feel free to room elsewhere - but I told them I would fill five rooms no problem.

                            Our kids are in Lemmon SD, so if I can find the time and money Linda can see her baby. Lemmon is pretty far from SF, but if I've already come from VT....
