I would love to see someone put together another get together. Hell maybe if anyone from the Albany area up here in NY even if theres a few of us can get something setup.

Any plans to do another one? would love to be a part of it.

Huh well hopefully we can get a few more to chime in.. Would be cool to have a "Capital Region" get together so to speak.

You need to check out the RPX in the clifton park mall.. Much nicer than the imax imo

Yeah, my wife always wants me to wait as well except I always miss the big ones at the better theaters. I have learned to just do what I have to. We have been together for 25 years.

Where in Schenectady are you Shady? I'm about a 5 minute walk from SCCC. I have no where near enough space for a gtg, so I can only offer up some Arx A1b's and a SB13-Ultra should something be arranged.

Technically "rotterdam" Im about 10 minutes away from SCCC. You know where Golub Corporation is on Rt7 duanseburg road? Right over that way..

I have a plenty big house, unfortunately I also have a full house (Me, My wife, my daufghter, my parents) the room with my equipment would not be big enough and would require quite the ammount of planning and moving around to set something up.. as of right now it does not seem doable.

You live towards State st or over the bridge in scotia?

Depending on what equipment there will be and dates I'd be interested in attending. I have Arx A5s, A2, A1bs, and could also bring Dana 630is depending on interest. I don't have an SUV so my HP SubM is staying right where it is smile.gif

After all, a 3 hour drive from Boston to Albany beats a 6 hour drive to the NE GTGs in PA!

For me this was looking to see if there were any plans for someone to do one.

As of right now I doubt I'd be able to personally host one but may be able to work something out at somepoint. At this point this thread is to gauge interest/get a network of us together to keep in contact to possible set something up.

I'm up state a bit, Shady. You've got me racking my brain trying to think of a good location for a gtg up here, besides someone kind and crazy enough to host one at their house.

If I was able to get everyone out of the entire house for a day (which is pretty impossible) could have a hell of a time over here.. Pool.. hot tub.. cookout etc.. Id' love to do it.. Just a matter of the impossibility of getting everyone out of the house

Without a car the only option is the train Cal. I'm about 3 hours from queens.

I too have a heated pool and jacuzzi. I think we would not leave the theater though! Last time I had a member over we stayed in the theater for about 6-7 hours straight!

If you're ever up for it I'd love to make the trip down and check it out/hangout

I have all AIY but I do have a single 888 LP lying around. I have not changed anything in more than 6 months, maybe longer so that must say something. All my gear will always be for sal if someone ever wants to try it. I am game for something new all the time and can always buy the same gear or something similar.
