Chi-Uni-Fi 7.5 - Chicago Area Meet - Nov 2nd  

post #1 of 107
Thread Starter 

ChiUniFi 7.5 is a GO.

 

Enough people have shown interest, so I'm going to build it, and we'll see who comes.  Same location as last year.

 

This event will be focused on gear, listening, and friendship of course!  There will be no official raffles.
 
I will also be setting up a music trade table.  If you have CD's or LP's that you would like to pass on, bring them along and see if there is anything on the table you might want to trade for.  I will be bringing some things I'm sure.  some good, some crap.  Its a nicer way to purge your collection if your so inclined.
 
I have not set up any kind of snacks or drinks.  If someone is willing to bring or pick something up, we can make space for it.  A bit of a pot luck if you will.  we don't need much of course.  maybe some water, pop, chips, whatever.  You don't have to bring anything.
 
I have included the details below, please take a minute to read ALL of it.  Please post in this thread and let me know if you are coming, and what gear you will be bringing along.  I will do my best to update the thread so we know who and what will be present.
 
Who: Midwest Head-Fi'ers 
What: Headphone Meet dude!
When: November 2nd, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Where: 4211 Grand Ave, Western Springs, IL 
Why: seriously?
How: now brown cow.
 
HOW TO FIND THE ROOM (yes, I will make signs along your path)
1.  Park in the free parking lot, and enter doors that are right off the lot
2.  get in the elevator and take it to the 2nd floor
3.  exit elevator, walk up the ramp to your left, and go through the door directly in front of you.
4.  You will now be in a hallway.  walk straight, and take the 2nd hallway on your right.  there will be a sign that says "SENIOR CENTER"  Go there.
5.  If you hit the girls bathroom, you've gone too far.  turn around.
6.  Welcome.
 
Other:
-Please bring extension cords and power strips if you have them.  There are outlets here, but I have to check on their placement.
-YES, the meet is easily accessible by train.  The Metra drops you off right in downtown Western Springs.  The meet location is only a few suburban blocks away.  Very easy walk, or you can arrange to be picked up by one of us.  Not me.
 
IMPORTANT!!
Following the event, if anyone is interested, there is a great pub 2.5 miles away in LaGrange.  excellent beer and food selections.  I plan on going there for a burger and a beer, and I hate to drink alone, so please join me.  Yes, its all ages as well.  This can often be the best part of a meet!
 
 
Whoo Hoo!!

If someone can give me a ride from St. Louis, I'll definitely be interested in going. I have thunderpants and pro900s.

I'm in. Enjoyed the last one, but must admit I was intimidated - so much nice gear and smart guys. But I love the music, so I'll come and learn.

Ooh.  Been dying to listen to the MS-X mk2.  I really need to get cracking on my Bottlehead S.E.X. so I can see how it stacks up.
