  • DakotaDIY 2014

    Gentlemen,

    I am in early planning stages of DDIY 2014, but the venue I plan on using really likes some solid advance notice.

    I am shooting for May/June (between InDIYana and MWAF), so am now soliciting preferences for any weekend during those months.

    The venue I have is not large, but should seat 10-15 people with ease, maybe more if elbow-to-elbow is not an issue.

    It has a full kitchen on-site, so lunch could be made considerably easier.

    So far, plans are for anyone coming in Friday evening to meet up at my local favorite watering hole for dinner and drinks. Meeting at the venue Saturday AM ~8 or 9 for a day of listening and nerding out.

    Saturday night, I'll have one of the wife's bands book a gig and I will reserve a table for us - she has just recently been hired to sing for a rock-a-billy band in addition to her blues rock/pop band so there will be a couple options there.

    So if you are interested in attending, I'll treat this thread as a very informal expression of interest point and move forward from here.

    Thanks!

    Additional thoughts:

    I can arrange for group transportation to the wife's show, if necessary.

    I could have lunch catered in from my favorite watering hole, as well, if we do not feel like cooking.

    I will create and update an official Facebook page in the near future, and link it in my signature.
    Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

    I'm in but no particular preference to date.

      This sounds like a lot of fun......like a mini-vacation as far as I'm concerned. Count me in. Maybe count me in for two as I might drag wifey into this little party. :D

            I can't travel more than about 30 miles from home in May and June due to my job :(. Otherwise, I would do everything possible to be there. Figures, there's a show "close" to home, and I can't attend. I'll be retired the following year, so I'll definitely put this on my list!

              I would love to attend if it's after the weekend of May 16th there is a fair chance that I will make it.

                Awesome guys!

                I'll add that I have about 500gb of FLAC, including quite a bit of that audiphiliac stuff. I think I will be doing a PC source/pre for the most part, probably as simple as my old laptop running to an external USB soundcard. Mechanical transport will also be available.

                        I'm interested, no preference for date. I'm not on the Book of Face, so updates here would be helpful.
