Yes peeps, my house is going on the market and the Stack is coming down for good.

Meet is on the weekend of the 25th Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. Feel free to come out and see what REAL on/off contrast with a kick ass picture looks like!

NOTHING currently can replace the stack. NOTHING. I am sad it has to go because it really is the bee's knees for sure!

As far as what is next, I have a BenQ W7000 that has been serving me well. I'm going to stick with that for now and decide what to do at a later date as far as my "premier" solution smile.gif

I'm out in So Cal on a regular basis due to my job. U guys got it made out there except the horrible traffic! smile.gif

Oh, sure, tease us Cliffy! That would be like going to a strip club full of gorgeous ladies, and seeing what you can't have. biggrin.gif

Where are all the bros? this is not like a normal meet. Its a state of inebriation for several days with lots of eats and good meals. Cliffy's chairs are quite comfortable for ovenighters and I remember one meet where a few guests spend a night hanging from a closet hook. There is usually a good share of pretty women too. This will be the end of an era. The last picture show.

Who is going to cover me up. There will be enough hot air to inflate the mattress without a pump. Will you tuck me in Cliffy?


Shoot me Kosmann's phone number. Besides sharing a long drive, I need to collect my pro audio calibration mike and kit I lent him three years ago. Last meet Mike P and I attended years ago, we went to a cubs game and got back to your house at 4 AM. I hung Mike up on that closet hook and went to sleep. Actually he slept on a theater chair.

Of course I'll tuck you in Markypoo lol! You should tell your other half to come out as well (Mr. Parker)!

As far as William's phone number head on over to the other thread at Curt's forum and u can PM him ok? I don't have his number handy so I know he is active over there and you should be able to reach him.

Here I is...................................

Mark, you can ride with me, if you can leave on Thursday, and return on either Sunday or Monday. I am driving to Cliffy's house on Thursday, cause I want to drive to Chicago first thing Friday morning to attend AXPONA, and meet up with Mark Seaton, to perhaps pick up some speakers. You can email me at maplecroft@verizon.net.

I can leave on Thursday. LONG ROAD TRIP. I will email you. Thank you. Long time no see.

Audio show on Friday seems like a good idea as well.

Cliffy. Put me down. I will try and contact Mike Parker.

There are zillions of pictures already and impressions. I doubt anyone is coming to see it, most of us have been to Cliffy's at least once and most of this group has been to Cliffy's several times. This is a reunion of sorts but newbies are always welcome.

Yo, Mark. Read your email. I sent you an email a couple of days ago about a small change in plans. I still want to leave early Thursday morning, 7 - 8 AM ish, but am not driving to Germyn, PA. So it makes more sense for you to drive to my house, and leave your car there. You (and Mike, if he is coming) are welcome to come stay at the house tonight, Wednesday evening, or show up early tomorrow morning. Please reply to my email to let me know you (and/or Mike) are riding with me.

William

Mark Haflich is coming with me, but Mike Parker is not. Mike had a medical setback from a trip to New Orleans, and doesn't feel up to making the trip.

Mark and I plan to leave no later than 8 AM tomorrow morning. It a little over a 10 hour trip, door to door, so we should be there Cliff, between 5 and 6 PM. Fire up the grill, roust up the midget strippers, and do whatever you have to do to get your party dress on...................cause its almost party time!!!

Rats, sorry I missed it Cliff. I haven't popped in on the crt forum for years it seems and tonight I see that you had a final meet!

You are a heck of a nice guy and helped me out a bunch with my G70. I remember having a nasty migraine at one of your meets and you were really kind.

I miss the old crt days......
