Here is a list of active home theater hobbiest in Kansas City, at least in relation to the ongoing KC g2gs that I'm aware of.
Here is a list of hobbiest who are in KC area, but perhaps not as active in the A/V events that I'm aware of.

Here is a list of notably active hobbiest within about a three hour drive that are active in nearby communities, and frequent KC g2g events.
I'm probably missing people - for that I apologize, but otherwise these are guys I've at least interacted with through PM on several occassions and I know they live locally - many I've been to their house and they to mine.
We have a google groups membership that we use to communicate with as well:
Kansas City Home Theater Enthusiasts
Feel free to request access to this google group:
Luke Kamp, carp, stitch1, and I are the managers of the google group - so you'll want to request access through one of us.
I like the IA Meet?
thread and it's constant updates. I hope to generate something like that for the KC enthusiasts. One could even use this thread to suggest they want to go see a movie at the new Dolby Atmos theater in NKC and see if anyone else out of our local group is interested in meeting them there. Just whatever... I hope the thread becomes yet another means of communication for a group of friends.
What I suggest is that those interested can consider hosting one evening for a rotating movie night. The interval can be fleshed out - - -Perhaps monthly, perhaps quarterly. You may only wish to host once, you may wish to host more often. If you would like to host a movie night at your home to show of your equipment, meet other enthusiasts in the hobby, or learn more about the hobby please provide the date you are willing to host. The details of the g2g can be hashed out through PM to keep address and contact information private if preferred. A few of the KC enthusiasts did this a couple years ago, but the monthly movie night g2g events slowed to a stop due to lack of participation. I'd like to see if we can resume the activity, as they were a lot of fun and a chance to learn more about the hobby and see many different setups.
If you'd like to be added to the list, or would consider hosting an event - please sound off in the thread!
