It looks like business travel will keep me from attending this meet in my own home town.  Very sorry - hope it goes well and we can grow it going forward.

 

All the best -

Arrrggghhh... I'll make some calls tomorrow and try to get this back on track. As long as everybody doesn't bail out, I'm thinking we can still make this work somehow!!

 

As an aside, I've reached out to Shawn (the OP) several times without any response. I'm a bit concerned about it, actually, so if anybody has other contact info for him, I'd appreciate it if you could check on him and make sure everything is okay. It's probably just a silly personal matter keeping him away, but I'd like to know that it isn't something else... Peace of mind.

 

Anyway, I am still excited about this, and I wanna make it HAPPEN. Nashville (of ALL places) should absolutely have a thriving Head-Fi community, and a meet is a great way to jumpstart that. So if we can salvage this dealio, I expect you each to drag every impressionable music fan you can up to NashVegas!!! :D

I was thinking about jumping in on this meet. Doesn't look so good though. I'll keep my eyes on this thread to see if anything changes.

Okay, I've called the Music City Sheraton, and they didn't have anything on the books for an event for us, so I've gotten the info together on it. Looks to be a bit pricey though (almost $700), so if anybody has any suggestions (or a space we can use), please holla back ASAP! (I PM'd skyline315 and decided I should ask the group as well). I'm in the process of contacting the vendors that were going to be there, and I'm going to send out a big PM to everyone who's posted in this thread once the location is firmed up. 

 

Here's where I can use some help, if anyone can jump in: 

  • Info on a more cost-effective place to have the meet
  • People who were interested in (or planning on) attending that have not yet posted in this thread
  • Vendors who were interested in (or planning on) attending that have not yet posted in this thread
  • Anybody that has backed out of attending
  • Any other people or vendors that we might be able to contact about coming
  • Anything else I haven't considered (never set up one of these suckers before)

Let me know, guys!! 

as for a cheaper place, maybe getting a little outside the metro area, and do we still want to try and keep it may 10th, or maybe change to a little later, being that we are kinda starting over ?

I have no problem with changing venues, as long as it doesn't mess with anybody else's plans. (Ideas on a good place outside the city would be welcome as well!) As for the date, I know several people had already planned on being here on the 10th, so I'd like to try to keep that date to respect their commitments if possible. Obviously, if there is a better date to do this and nobody will be inconvenienced by the change, I'm all for it-- so definitely let me know, guys!! 

 

Thanks for the reply, Jay!! :)

I don't know the area well enough to suggest a venue, but I like the idea of keeping it on the 10th. Summer's busy for me and I locked that date up for some head-fi madness!

the 10th is fine with me,

i don't know the area at all, just passed through nashville and that was years ago, although i have been to franklin, would that be too far out of nashville, ?  i bet a meeting room  could be had there for less than $700

post #135 of 172

@JoeDoe: I'm sure you are not the only one who blocked out that particular date for this, so I'm doing everything on the assumption that we're keeping that date. We want ya there!! :)

 

@jawillin: I'm not sure (I live about a hour and a half away), but I can find out! Typically, Franklin is one of the more upscale areas in Nashville, so I'm guessing that it would be pricier, but you never know. My sister lives in Nashville, so I'm going to call her too. She seems to know everyone within a 30-mile radius of the city, so she might have an in with a hotel owner or something :P.
