I'm contemplating another meet at my place. I'm looking at the end of September or so while we still have nice weather for travel etc.


I'd like to get an idea of how many would be interested. It would be on a Saturday and as with my other meets would start at around 2:00 PM and go till folks want to call it a night.


I'm planning an audio upgrade so for anyone who was at my last meet there would be some additional fun stuff.


I'd like to see if I can get a few people involved in my theater to be there as well to talk to folks about their questions ,their theaters etc.


Let me know if you are interested so I can start to formulate plans.

Art, I would be interested and will drag my wife along for this one as well.

Since our HT is nearing completion, I want her to see your theater.

The only snag I have is I will be in Florida from Sept. 9th to the 16th. Anything else and I would love to attend!!

Fly into Kalamazoo stay the night. The president of the WV HT society needs to be more worldly..... just kidding but I know you'd get a kick out of this. :)

Kalamazoo is 20 minutes from my house. We probably could make arrangements to get you if needed.

What's the farthest someone has come? Is Houston too far? Can I stay the week?! Hope you have fun, wish I was there.

Art, I would love to come by. Only about 1.5 hours away. Actually the 25th is bad for me.


I'm close to Detroit Metro also if anyone needs a ride from the airport. Plus I have a guest room with full bath as well (actually 2, but the second is in the basement across from the HT and who could sleep with that so near?).


Hey umdivx (Josh), I'm a huge Vikings fan, are you? Maybe Art could tune in the game if he has Sunday Ticket.

Otherwise, Kalamazoo / Battle Creek airport ( about 17 minutes away) would probably be better. :D


I'm now tentatively looking at October 8th but I want to make it work for as many as possible.

Hmm, I wonder what kind of weather/temperatures we'd have around that time... Maybe good enough for a motorcycle ride to the other side of Lake Michigan... I'd love to meet you Art, and complement you in person. :)

Hope to see you ! :)

Art, talked to my wife last night about this and I think she would be interested (WAF is important in this hobby). We're only about 4 hours away in a Cleveland suburb and have friends in Kalamazoo. But....I'll be in Lexington, KY part of that weekend for business including that Saturday. If you happen to settle on a different date we may be able to make it. If not, the next one. Thanks for your hospitality--I know people are anxious to see your theater in person.

That is really too bad. I have found that the wives who come too my home and sit for a while more often than not want to reproduce the experience in their homes rather than being turned off, disinterested, or overwhelmed.


I wish there were a way to make it work for everyone. Since it is still tentative stay tuned. :)

I just mentioned this to my wife as well, and she said she'd love to come. We'll be buying a different house next year and building a dedicated HT, and I think she really needs some inspiration. :)


Unfortunately I mentioned riding the motorcycle in early October and she said "no way!"... so I guess it'd be the car. And I'm hoping it stays on the 8th due to our schedule.. :) (Selfish, I know - you can't please everybody)

Oh, but I am worldly Art. I've been to Myrtle Beach.....like 3 times.


Actually, I'll be vacationing in Isle of Palms, SC during your meet. If you do it again next year, I would like to take a drive up for it.
