Toronto Winter Meet - Page 12

post #166 of 309

 

I would be willing to host a meet...the only problem is I live well off the beaten track.

I have lots of space now with the new addition to the house. With my schedule it looks

like the only way I'll get to a meet is if the meet comes to me...

 

South East Lake Simcoe...Ice fishing capital of Canada.

I think we should consider on putting a thread for the MAY or Summer meet~~~

 

Winter seems not be possible for these weather.

Same here. I just like to zone out with what I have until the magic stops...then its time to tweak or upgrade. I suspect my Crack is starting to get expensive to beat though. So these days its about not spending where I don't have to. Modding BH gear can really get you some sweet results.

 

Personally, I think I would be going to the meet mostly for the music. I'm always looking to branch out. Find something new.

 

And I'm cool. No rush. I'm in the Dominic on the beach from Feb 7th until the 17th. I'll be heavily drunk, thinking of you poor souls shivering in the cold. 

 

My freakin' RE-400's went through the wash. No chance to replace them before I leave. That really sucks. No chance to zone while I'm gone. I really cherish those solo moments deep in the nights. I had hoped for a chance to find some beach,  some tunes, ocean in the night and a lonesome peace and tranquility.

 

I'll just have to use minds eye I guess. Tones to pull from there. 

 

*cheers*

Hey if this is stretching out, I'd prefer to see this stretch out into a larger 2 day event with option to crash out at a hotel. Is that going too big? Because I have absolutely no qualms with hanging out and talking about gear, listening to gear. Comparing gear and listening to gear for a couple days.

 

A day packed in with travel seems a bit short for me. Especially if it's just going to be once a year. I don't have the time and $ to be the playboy I want to be and simply just jump from event to event. Like I would....

 

What do you think?

Crashing at a hotel would be fine for me because of the train schedules (I'd have 2 hours or so to stay if I leave the same day for like 8-9 hours of travelling)

A full 2-day event is aiming a bit too high, normally these things die down after 5 or 6 hours. A main issue is getting enough people to donate to offset the cost of renting a meeting room for the day, a second day would likely be impossible.

With that said, I'm sure there would be more than a few of us happy to attend an after party  :wink_face:

Here's an idea.

 

Last fall I attended my first OVRA meeting. The group has meetings several times a year. They have booked a room at a police station in Richmond Hill. There are tables in the room which can accommodate at least 30 people. My 2 cents.

For the close locals they likely won't care for a second day but as someone taking the train in, it would be nice to get a bit more done.
That being said, for the Montreal meets they're usually 3-5 hours but I always go off with a few others back to someone else's house to do more listening. It really depends a lot on how much there is to test and listen to.

Well, hey, count me in for each and every day that gets planned, I'm just not sure it'd happen.

If people can actually drive in, we can always look at community centers in the suburbs. I can get something markham if need be, but i thought people prefer to be on the subway line.

Also, can the person who brought the balanced hd650 rig bring it in one more time? I would love to hear it again.

I am fine with driving. However, if you want to include all the younger headfier that do not have a car, somewhere that is reachable through the public transit system is a must.

I am pretty sure they are many students wanna to come and meet in Toronto.

That's a generous offer but it makes it very difficult for anyone without a car.

From experience, how big are Toronto meets?  Ie, how many attendees.

Oh wow!  That's a lot more than I had expected.  That's excellent.
