You are looking for Georgetown Center, a group of buildings between Corson Avenue S and S Fidalgo St. Corson Avenue S is a one-way street, so the best approach to Front Panel Express from I-5 northbound or southbound is Exit 162. At the bottom of the ramp bear right. The east entrance to Georgetown Center is immediately after the intersecton of S Orcas St and Corson Avenue S. Go past the woodworking store on your left and keep to the right. Front Panel express is on the west side of Georgetown Center at the end of Fidalgo St.

From 509 northbound take the Michigan St / I-5 exit. Bear RIGHT (East) onto S Michigan St. Turn LEFT (North) onto 6th Ave S. Turn RIGHT (East) onto S Fidalgo St and follow it to its end at Georgetown Center. You are at Front Panel Express.

From 44th Avenue S southbound, Turn LEFT (East) onto S Fidalgo St and follow it to its end at Georgetown Center. You are at Front Panel Express.

From S Lucile St westbound toward the underpass at I-5, turn RIGHT (North) onto Airport Way S, then LEFT (West) onto S Lucile St. Turn LEFT (South) onto 6th Ave S. Turn LEFT (East) onto S Fidalgo St and follow it to its end at Georgetown Center. You are at Front Panel Express.

Very cool, I think I think I will be able to make it. I am going to be out of town on buisness getting back friday night. Dont have a clue what I will have for gear.

post #3 of 241

Nice!  I don't foresee any problems making it, especially with the advance notice.  I should be able to volunteer for whatever you need, and I work out of the Columbia Tower so I can swing by there after work on Friday to help with setup.  I'll PM ya Poppa.

post #4 of 241

I would like to help.

post #5 of 241

Yeah, I just got the email saying my amp is ready to be shipped. Now.... if I can only get a source before then. The wife gave me the ok to come. Looking forward to it.

Updated 1st post. Check out the raffle stuff.

post #7 of 241

Very nice.  Being a few hours away I probably can't do any volunteering aside from post-meet cleanup, I can certainly bring up some goods from Costco if we're short anything in regards to munchies.

Hey guys, this may be just the meet to bring your friends? You know the ones... The ones that enjoy your gear but not on Head-fi yet. I put the meet on my signature. Would be way cool for the attendee's to do the same to spread the word.

post #11 of 241

Hey All, I am super excited for this.  Heh will be my first meet.


See you all there.



post #12 of 241

Cool...welcome aboard Tink.  Hope you have a good time!
