    Re: InDIYana 2014 Prelim Thread....SCHEDULING ISSUE

    We have a standing annual excursion to visit my son in CA the weekend after Memorial Day. :( I would have tried to make it on another date.

    That's my anniversary, so we'll see how it works out.

    While it's early, what would the Ansonicas' cost for drivers be? If it's $50 up, I'm flexible this early to allow you to enter with them, we'll just move the expectant price point.
    Curious,

    Is there room inside to park my car? It sounds good, only the cabinet is very large and has 4 wheels.

    Okay, barring someone else scheduling it in the last few hours, I have asked to reserve it for the 30/31st of May.
    This will be the latest InDIYana has been scheduled in the year, so I hope this is good for everyone.

    I guess next year I need to schedule before January.
    Thank you all for the support in selecting a date.

    We have the last 2 weekends in May open now.

    Which one you guys want? I'd like to do the 30/31 since my anniversary is the 24th.
    Is that okay with the masses?

    30/31 for me, I won't be able to do 24/25 because that's Memorial Day weekend and we usually go camping.

    So- I'll peg May 16/17 then! Dates confirmed!!
    I'll set them up,
    Wolf
    God willing, I'll be at this one!! Thanks Ben. I know from MI it would be difficult for me to help out, but if there's anything I can do to relieve some of your work load in this, let me know.

    I will (probably) bring 2 different pairs of basically the same speakers. Its the new design I've drug out way too long that I've been working w/ Meniscus on. One pair will have cabinets I built, and the other will use Dayton's prebuilt cabinets. I'm working on an MTM as well as an MT version using the HiVi L6-4R drivers (pretty sure at this point that isn't news to anyone :o).

    Looking forward to seeing everyone again!!

    Just out of curiosity (not to thread rob either), but while we're talking about spring plans... AXPONA this year?? Who plans on attending that??

    Do things so they are fun, for you and everyone else. Don't push it, or wear yourself out. Everyone will be happy either way.

    InDIYana 2008 had a 'show of hands' vote, just as last year went, and was a head-to-head challenge setup.
    Last year was a Blind competition with stated parameters and limits, and I think it was well received. Fallout seemed to be minimal really without much post-buzz after the fact.

    So- I just don't feel the stress of the setup is worthwhile for this year, and I'm going to take it a bit easier. Am I not allowed to make the event less stressful to run? This is something that the attendees may not grasp entirely if/until they host one for themselves, but these are indeed a LOT of work and time to make successful. It was a lot more work for the blind setup last year, and I just don't think I want to do that again this year.
