3/31/12 CanFEST III Headphone Event-Charlotte, NC with Turntable and Vinyl Show - Page 14  

post #196 of 238

So, now that we're getting close here, anyone interested in a Friday get together / mini-meet, say around 4pm at the hotel? I figure it might be a nice way to get to hear a few things in a less chaotic/loud environment.

 

PM me or post here if interested.

 

(and of course, if a different/later time would be better just mention it; we should be getting to the hotel early afternoon-ish so any time after 3 or so would probably work for us)

I will be at the hotel around 6pm. Hopefully, we can bump into each other around that time if you are not yet out for dinner.

I won't be arriving until Saturday morning, so I'll probably miss the earliest hour of fun. We're staying Saturday night, though, in case there's anything interesting going on.

Just a quick note for the exhibitors. You will be able to set up the evening before the event. Please contact me should you need this extra time (more than two hours).

I think I'll need ~5 minutes. smily_headphones1.gif

BTW, will there be concessions or vending machines?

The only other response I've gotten is for someone free around 5:30, so yeah, we should still be around at 6 smily_headphones1.gif

Speaking of before and after gatherings, has there been any talk of BBQ during or after the event? I'd like to see how your western North Carolina style compares to the eastern style hereabouts...

I should be around the hotel at 6ish and helping a few exhibitors set up Friday evening starting around 7PM. There is a great Japanese restaurant and BBQ place about 300 yards away from the hotel, an easy walk. Perhaps we can try to have dinner at one of those places for those who are interested. I imagine Ray will want to "party" Friday evening and have some equipment set up in his room or someone else may do this. For anyone interested we can meet in the hotel lobby around 6pm and figure things out from there.

There are some snacks in a little store off the main hotel desk. There is also a restaurant at the hotel in addition to a McDonalds across the street and a Japanese and BBQ place about 300 yards from the hotel. Also, if you have a Costco membership card that store is about one block from the hotel. Lots of snacks there.

The show is close and I have non refundable rooms for Friday and Sat.
I am a hermit in a great place on Lake Hartwell with damn good audio.

A couple days off, I am having second thoughts as to why I should drive 200 miles to hang out in a room alone when it is really great here.  
I don't fit in well and it is hard for me to meet people or mingle. I thought I had a buffer, but his boss is coming in and he can't go.

Any out here who will let a geek join their group?
I like to drink, know Charlotte inside/out.

You can still be a hermit and go to the show, just don't talk to anyone and only listen to gear if you want! I would suggest talking to people though. The two main reasons to go to a meet is to meet people and to listen to gear you don't have, can't afford, or can't justify purchasing just to see what's out there.

Yeah, we're good folks and we seldom bite. wink.gif
