SAN DIEGO Meet, April 23

post #1 of 284
Thread Starter 

OK, we're going to host a meet for anyone in So Cal who'd like to spend a Saturday afternoon in downtown San Diego's lovely little Italy.  




Location: 10AM-3PM, Doubletree Hotel, 1646 Front Street, San Diego, 92101.  The meeting room is on the pool-level, down the main hall on the left.


Parking is in the building, we have a $5 rate.  Let them know you're with Head-fi.


Electrical:  We have extension cords, but it will really help if everyone brings a power strip(s) adequate to your equipment's outlet needs.  They will charge for additional electrial, and I am sure nobody wants me running around with a tin-cup.


Tables: 10 tables and 32 chairs.  A few people aren't bringing gear, a few have small kits, and a few are going to need a fair piece of real-estate so I think this should cover us.  If anyone thinks I'm off my rocker on this, say so.  It's my first meet...  wink_face.gif


EDIT:  Ultimate Ears has stepped forward to cover the cost of the venue!  Also, they're bringing an audiologist along, and planning a raffle for FIVE EARPHONES!  



The venue fills up with 40 people, and we're going first come first served.  If we hit 40 I will make a backup list.  If I missed your name and you confirmed as definite before we hit 40 I will correct the list, so please check to make sure I have your name.  


Current count is now 37 YES and 2 TENTATIVE.  Tentative will have first right of refusal if list fills up to 38.
