San Diego Head-Fi Meet: Saturday, November 3rd, 2012  

post #1 of 218
Thread Starter 

***Update*** Date has been changed to Saturday, November 3rd, 2012. Sorry about that.

 

OK, here it is, finally!

 

***Update***

I have confirmed a location and time for the meeting:

 

The meet will be from 11:00am until 4:30pm on Saturday, November 3rd.

 

The meet will be held at the Coronado Public Library in the Winn Room: 640 Orange Avenue, Coronado, CA 92118 (619) 522-7390

 

There is no parking lot, but street parking shouldn't be a problem. The parking on the main street in front of the library is 2 hour parking. But all the other side streets in the neighborhood are unrestricted.

 

We will have access to the room for setup starting at 10:00am and we will have 1 hour to pack up and put away the tables and chairs, clean, etc. at the end. We must be completely done in the room by 5:30pm.

 

We are allowed to bring food and beverages (no alcohol though). I have not made any plans to provide anything. Never having been to a meet, is there usually food or beverages provided? Not sure if anyone wants food or drinks near their gear!

 


I have two sponsors so far who have committed to helping out with expenses.

 

Other than that, please post on this thread if you plan on coming and what equipment you can bring, if any.

 

Also, if anyone else wants to help with the organization of this event, please PM me. I have never organized a meet before, so this will be an adventure for me. But since no one seemed willing to step up, I decided to volunteer.

 

Subscribe to this thread and check this post for updates.

 

Looking forward to a decent turn out!

Meet Rules: (I stole these from the LA meet, so some of you should be familiar with them.)

 

1) Please treat others' gear with the utmost care and respect.
2) Do not unplug headphones without asking permission from the owners first.
3) Do not turn anything on or off without asking permission first.
4) Do not move anyone's gear from their established area without asking permission.
5) Always treat other headfiers with the utmost respect.
6) If a woman shows up - DO NOT GAWK. They are part of the human species and also deserve the utmost respect. Do not fear that this is the only one.
7) Do not bring ANY food or drinks near any equipment, including your own.
8) If you eat, please WASH YOUR DIRTY, GREASY HANDS BEFORE touching other people's equipment.
9) Do not ask the vendors too many questions. They want to have fun too and others may want to ask questions as well.
10) Always follow the rules of the host. He/She/They have been gracious enough to host a meet so he/she/they deserve the most respect and if you don't follow any of the above rules, AT LEAST follow this one.
11) No shirt, no shoes, no headphone meet.
12) Do not put screw drivers in electrical outlets, people's equipment or people's ears.
13) If it's summer - please wear deodorant.
14) If it's winter - please wear deodorant.
15) DO NOT wear hair gel or any cosmetic product that may damage or stain a headband or earpads.
16) Make sure your guests, if you bring any, follow the rules as well.

That said....HAVE FUN!

 

More information about the location:

 

  • To find the Winn Room, just go into the main entrance to the library which faces Orange Ave.

 

  • Once you go in the main doors, go to the right of the front desk. There is a door there to your left.

 

  • Go through the door and turn right until you are facing Orange Ave. again. Continue through the doors into the Winn Room.

 

Alternately, there is a entrance to the room from the outside. (See map below.) I am assuming we can use that entrance to load gear in and for people to enter the meet.

 

If you have any trouble finding the room, you can try calling me on my cell: 619-PHOTOG1 (619-seven four six - eight six four one)

 

 

The library opens at 10:00am. If you want to come then to get your gear set up and help setting up the tables, that would be great!

 

The room is great. It has floor to ceiling windows on three sides. There are lots of power outlets around the base of all four walls. They seem to be spaced about every 6 ft. Please still bring extension cords and power strips just in case.

 

I would also appreciate it if some people stay later to help put everything away and clean up the kitchen and room, etc.

 

Here's a map detail:

Thanks for the offer. I will let you know.

 

If you do want to bring any gear you want to share, ordinary or not, please feel free. No worries if you don't bring anything though.

Hi,

 

I'll try to attend if I'm in town. I'll have some IEM that we're developing and ask for a review. You're the experts!

 

Thanks

I am close to getting a room booked. I should get approval/confirmation in the next week or so. It looks like we will be able to have the meeting at the Coronado Library's Winn room. The only issue is that we ahve to be packed up and out of the room by 5:30pm, so I might change the hours a little bit earlier just to make sure we have enough time to pack up, put the tables and chairs away, etc.

 

I will post final details once I get their approval.
