    Yup! That was Grand Rapids 2019. Good Times! Pretty sure JR was there too. Honestly that Grand Rapids trip is one of my best speaker buddy memories so far. Looking forward to the sequel.

    Penciled in the calendar. No idea if I can make it, and I don't have a new project to share right now, but it would be great to hang out for a bit.

    I can't remember if it was InDIYana or Grand Rapids 2019, but I'll have to watch out for the random sales guy in the hotel bar handing out shots to me and KEtheredge87

    CD is guaranteed to work and we'll try to accommodate thumb drive as well.

    Yes, I should have said something more general like Digital File on a thumbdrive.

    I'll buy one if needed and I'm sure they're a lot cheaper now than 10 years ago.

    What formats of demo music will work, bring a CD, bring mp3 on thumbdrive, mp3 emailed to hosts ahead of time, others...? I know at InDIYana it needed to be on a CD but I haven't had a CD burner in nearly a decade.

    If you wanna go for just Saturday and then home that evening after dinner, we could ride together....

    I'm definitely in for this one! I will for sure bring the PlumDingers speakers I made for my wife since those haven't had an appearance in the DIY circuit yet. If enough folks want I could bring my Party Animals PA speakers and subwoofer setup. That's a big ordeal though just to set up for 5 minutes. Stands, DJ box, wires, etc. If anyone has a real strong desire let me know. I might rent a uhaul trailer to make that happen.

    started a topic DIY Speaker Event in Grand Rapids, MI

    DIY Speaker Event in Grand Rapids, MI

    Finally got the dates and location locked in for the Meniscus/CSS get-together, Sept. 17th-18th in Grand Rapids Michigan. Details in the following link:

    http://links.meniscusaudio.com/?ref=...JySzxZLJshheMV

    No theme this year, but we do have a couple rules to keep things entertaining.

    1. Please bring only designs new to this event since 2019 (2020 was skipped due to Covid)
    2. Each speaker will get 5 min of house music and 5 min of music brought by the designer. Finding new great demo tracks is one of the best parts of these events and we want to encourage people to bring their own demo music instead of choosing to replay someone else's music. In the absence of personal demo tracks, the speaker will be limited to the 5 min of house tracks.
    3. Entrants can bring as many speakers as they want to demo, but we will allow only one entry per person per "round" before moving on to the next "round" so if we run out of time, everyone should have had equal opportunity to demo their speakers. As such, please prioritize multiple entries in order of desire to demo - we will have some method of labeling this at the event.

    Can't wait to see you all there and let me know if you have any questions!

    Dan
