Is anyone else planning on coming up to the Savoy on Sunday?

@dsl1 , and @baniels ... You're in.

The planning group voted to limit this event to 50 people divided into three groups when we last met. We are approaching that 50 now.

There are some other takeaways from the initial host planning session that I need to put up here. One important one being that we will all be eating lunch together on Saturday, and we will all go to the same single house on Saturday night together. @Stoked21 offered to host the whole crowd at his place on Saturday night for a final stop. We had some pretty hearty requests to allow for at least a couple times during the day for the attendees to be all together since we were dividing into three groups for the crawl otherwise. So at this point we'll have at least three-four times where the group can almost entirely be together. (Dolby Prime movie, Chuck's, Doug's Derek's, O'Malley's Pub?, audio meets?)

The other major take away is that Sunday we won't have a regularly scheduled crawl --- instead:

Friday night will be the movie (hopefully John Wick 2) at AMC Dolby Cinema and then @cvinfig will be hosting his demo session after the movie at his amazing loft/condo downtown (It's a big space, but we are still trying to decide how many people he can host that Friday night), Saturday will be the official Crawl, lunch will be a two hour window at Dougs, Sunday will be at least a couple audio meet opportunities - right now we are thinking a subwoofer shootout and a blind amp comparison but these ideas may reshuffle --- or some of the alternate hosts have expressed interest in opening up their house on Sunday for optional visits. Monday we will do more of the same as Sunday for those still around.

I'll update this post more a little later today!

Merry Christmas to everyone!

If there is still room, I would like to add me +1. We will be driving in from Texas on Friday so we probably won't make the AMC Prime movie.

@Ricci said some things have come up and he needs to take his name off the attendee roles.


All of you attendees who felt excited to meet him -- feel free to raz him endlessly -- well until he changes his mind.

I'm not saying it's impossible but it's looking doubtful at this point.

jedimastergrants primo stuff

Several of the hosts will be having items for sale so with Arch's permission I am posting some of mine here so you guys can pull the trigger now. I plan to have a table at the entrance to the theater will all my stuff and prices.

JVC DLA-RS400 I bought this from an authorized dealer a year ago. Pristine condition. It has 756 hours and was professionally calibrated by Michael @desertdome I am getting the RS420 (most likely). I have a classified thread up as of today.

JVC DLA-RS45 similar story with this one but just a bit older. It throws an amazing 1080p image for $800. Classified thread up about a year ago ha ha. It is still in great condition.

Triad in wall Bronze Surround speakers (4) $225 each. Excellent condition. These are great dipoles. Really a stealth approach as it will fit in your wall.

Volt 6 Ported (4) $100 each. Just made these this summer and they are great bang for the buck.

Also for sale

Insteon ISY 944i $50
Insteon Linc wall switch
Samsung UBD K8500 $125

And possibly either my JTR Orbit Shifter or my 2 Passive Captivators if I can't get them to play nicely together!

Just PM me so we don't muddy up the thread. I will hold items as soon as they are paid for.

ENG-399 is dropping out for an injury - tore his ACL over the Holiday. Mike sent me the text message a moment ago with the bad news. I'm sorry to hear that mike. First post updated again.


That's it - nobody else can back out without approval from the planning committee.

In all seriousness guys - we expect this type of thing after doing these a few times -- I figured only about 80% of the commits would make it --- things come up - I understand. Get well, Get through whatever it is, and we'll catch you on the flip side.



Back down to 41. (we were up at nearly 50 at one point).


About 50 is our agreed upon attendance cap.


-------------


I've mentioned this briefly before, but the format changed a bit at the initial big host planning session in December. We are doing three groups - but making sure people can spend more time together. Everybody will be together Friday night for the movie, and possibly a hosts house (cvinfig) , everybody will be together at Doug's house (d_c) for some smoked BBQ over a two hour lunch on Saturday, and everybody will be together at Derek's house (stoked21) on Saturday night. Each group will see eight home theaters on Saturday.


On Sunday - we'll be probably doing a few events you can chose from at different hosts --- still working on those plans with the hosts. At this point probably
1) a sighted subwoofer shootout, or maybe speaker auditions too?
2) a blind amplifier test
3) Possibly a smaller home theater tour arrangement with a few alternate houses opened up by locals not otherwise officially on the big Saturday tour.
4) Likely an O'Malley's Irish Pub run on Sunday night.
5) Perhaps some people heading to Des Moines to see dlbecks place?!.


On Monday - for anyone still left - more fun. a mix up of options based on what was not yet done. Perhaps even just including a long lunch run of say the four best places in KC for BBQ, where those interested can go and grab a half sandwich from each place and learn for yourself why KC is way up on there on the places to visit if you love good BBQ.

I wish I could make it but with a blown knee (work related) there's no way to make it nor do I want to take a chance falling making it worse out of town. Jonathan seen the picture of my knee at the hospital the night I slipped at work...I'll be there next time if you guys host another big GTG meet. Wish I could make it this time.
