Calling all hosts - @carp @Scrappydue @JDontee @d_c @jedimastergrant @Stoked21 @chirpie @ChldsPlay @Archaea @cvinfig


And other potential hosts @Randy Bessinger , @Luke Kamp , @stitch1 , @MrSmithers, @sigma722 (or even just those other local active enthusiasts who want to provide input)


Let's plan on meeting - those who can - next Thursday night December 15, at Gates BBQ on Main at 5:30 PM to have our initial group planning discussion.
We'll meet again in January somewhere for those that can't make this first planning session. But figure if you want to weigh in strongly on direction/groups/course of this event, then have your voice heard at this first meeting - or send me your thoughts in advance of the meeting so I can share them at the meeting.

Cool! Yeah I found a non stop on the same jet I flew in on last time for $350 through American. It is a smaller plane, but does the job and non stop!

I'll be working. Till 7. Every single night just about. I'm prolly gonna bow out on this years round of theaters. We are just way out of the way and my room is just too small to host any more than about 5 people max. There is zero standing room. Plus I have a new baby that is gonna be in this household in the next 4-5 weeks. I have no clue what my new schedule is about to be like. I have been working non stop trying to get my house ready for this addition to the family. Don't even have a xmas tree up yet. Just hectic. I know there are a few guys coming in that have wanted to hear my stuff for some time. If there is small group who wants to come up after the tour or on Sunday or Monday then that could be arranged. I just don't want to end up having to cancel some big planned thing at the last minute if something comes up.

Sheldon,

My wife works all weekend this weekend if you want to come by and hear those Berries. Jonathan might come by at some point too. I have to run his omnimic to get the bass configured appropriately and I have to figure out some of the rattles and see if I can fix them.

Nice!! I don't think I can get away this weekend, but I'll have to come over sometime to hear them. How are you liking the sound in the room?

Bummer, let me know when you would be free, I am home several nights during the week also.

I think it sounds great, minus all the rattling lol. Need to put some stuff on some doors and the screen mount and then some stuff in the kitchen needs cushioned. But I think the Behringers sound really good.

For those who are joining me tomorrow night at Gates BBQ for the initial detailed planning session as described in post 391 above, I'll have a little early gift compliments of lastbutnotleast and superleo.


Can you sound off if you plan to attend so I know how many mystery gifts to bring?


I understand Sheldon, Randy, Chuck, Ryan and I will be there. (5)


Is that it? Steven, Doug, Grant, and Kevin have conflicts. (4)


What about @JDontee and @Stoked21 ?

Is this just for those who are showing their Home Theaters or any of us in the KC area?

OK, I will be there. I have been into home theater for a while but still don't have my room even close to being done. I will see at the Gates on Main.

There are some pretty good places....the best is a hinky blue bus in a parking lot behind a bar. I miss having a good variety of places to go.

I'm more of a ribs guy, my current favorite is a place close to me called Blind Box BBQ. However, their baby back ribs are a lot better than their spare ribs - not sure if that's frowned upon or not.

I am not going to be able to make it, but I will make up for it this Friday when I will be smoking a pork butt over night for pork burnt ends the next day at my kids Taekwondo Christmas party. Should be good. I seem to like my own BBQ better most the times anymore.

Have fun tonight.

Here's some of the main agenda items tonight:
  • Figuring out Sunday night and Monday bonus activities (blind amp meet, subwoofer shootout, projector shootout, bar run at O'Malleys)
  • Setting up tour groups and hopefully finalizing the previously suggested draft schedule
  • Agreeing on/discussing what we should do or not do for vendor opportunities
  • Determining eating stops for our tour groups
  • Giving out a mystery gift for those who can make it
  • Planning routes between these (and maybe more) host locations:

Won't be able to make it tonight. Figure I should use the time to actually work on my theater.. I think it would take a miracle for me to be ready for the crawl, so we can keep me on the maybes still, but I wouldn't hold my breath /

Could I get the general area The Savoy is in, so we can finish out hotel reservations?

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.
