Guys and possibly Ladies,

I would really like to get a meet going! This would get us to know each other and make new friends in our hobby. It will also let us hear different components and speakers like other gtg's on here. Even though I am trying to arrange this gtg, I do not think that my house would be a great host site because I have a newborn baby. However, I will bring food or beer and what ever equipment needed. Let's get the Houston members together and maybe somebody is willing to host. Spread the word!

If you have any more things that you would like to add, just post them.

jautor 01-15-2014 07:31 PM

Heck yeah, I'm in... I'll even offer to host, although I'll defer to those with that "new theater smell" in the air! biggrin.gif

PS - Suffounding? confused.gif

Pain Infliction 01-15-2014 08:12 PM

Awesome! Thanks for giving the option to host! Let's get this going and when more people are aware, we can set a date.

7channelfreak 01-15-2014 09:17 PM

Sure...I would like to go as well. I'd love to see jautors theater again. It's been over a year.

And if we really want to open it up, there's several over in San Antonio and Austin.

kamiraa 01-15-2014 10:13 PM

Pretty cool! I may be in depending on when it is, I've been really busy lately though. Post up details when they are hammered out!

Take care

gdfein 01-16-2014 06:28 AM

I'm interested as well.

I'm in corporate accounting so this Jan/Feb YE reporting season is a busy 6wks for me but once you get something scheduled I would love to participate if I can make it work.

Pain Infliction 01-16-2014 06:31 AM

Great! So far that is four people. I am available any weekend except the second week in march I am going to Vegas so it is up to you guys when you all want to do this. Let's see who else wants to join. I have sent out a few messages and if you guys know anybody shoot them a pm.

If I can work it around kid's sports activities, I'm in as well.

avtexan 01-16-2014 12:24 PM

Count me in, sounds fun! I would love to do a tour but we are all so spread out.

Pain Infliction 01-16-2014 12:35 PM

Ok we are getting a great response so far! How many people is too much for you jautor?

Avtexan... I agree and that is one down side of Houston. Soooo BIG!

Pain Infliction 01-16-2014 12:37 PM

Also, do you guys want to demo other speakers/subs and compare, or do you just want to meet?

jautor 01-16-2014 12:43 PM

Sometime during President's Day weekend? (Feb 15-17)

How many of us have that Monday off (I do)? That would make either Saturday, Sunday or Monday viable...

Pain Infliction 01-16-2014 01:16 PM

I don't think that I have that day off. We work too much at my company. For me, Saturday is the best because I think you live far from me and I would not have to worry about time. If Sunday is better for everybody else than that is fine.

gdfein 01-16-2014 07:31 PM

Sunday would be better for me as Saturday is a workday. frown.gif

76. biggrin.gif

(although 12 maxes out the theater seating...)

Pain Infliction 01-17-2014 06:34 AM

76 lol.

Is everybody available on the dates that jautor posted?

superleo 01-17-2014 12:09 PM

Hey guys!

I'm in San Antonio but travel to Houston quite often, for work, kids sports, plus have family and friends in Huston that I can bum with cool.gif, so if can make it work I would like to be included.

I see that Jautor has a scope screen, if interested I made a scope only material demo disc for a friend, we could use some of those clips. Let me know.

Only if you leave a copy! I've been meaning to punch out copies of the various AVS demo discs but haven't done it yet. Certainly faster than switching discs!

superleo 01-17-2014 12:40 PM

If people attending would like a copy what we can do is, let me know how many copes we need then we just swap a demo disc for an empty disc from those interested on having a copy.

BTW, my wife would love to attend also, and a couple of friends from Houston.... I know, once you start just keep getting bigger and bigger !!! biggrin.gif

I have no problem with that - for "real" movie watching I have 12 seats in the theater. Obviously more people can squeeze in for demos - there's been ~18 (adults with kids, though) in there for the Super Bowl...

superleo 01-17-2014 12:48 PM

Depending on the count, and just a suggestion, there could be two groups and do like 25 min demo segments. while one group is in the theater the other group is outside mingling, then get everyone together for 10 - 15 min and do another segment.

Pain Infliction 01-17-2014 02:33 PM

jautor...do you have poker tournaments often?

PM sent!

7channelfreak 01-18-2014 02:20 PM

I could do either Saturday or Sunday that weekend.

Pain Infliction 01-18-2014 07:07 PM

Looks like that weekend is working out for a lot of people. Is there anybody that can't make it that weekend? By the way, jautor, do you also live in north Houston/Woodlands?

jautor 01-18-2014 09:21 PM

I'm in the NW outside the Beltway, halfway between 249 and 290 off of Spring-Cypress...

speedoflight 01-20-2014 07:31 PM

I just found this thread. I'd like to participate and am available the weekend of Feb 15, 16 & 17.
