I'm in. Willing to make the six mile commute for this one.
Oooohh, why couldn't it be the weekend before or after that one
We're also excited!!!
I hope there's plenty of space for member gear, because I'd be planning on bringing my setup too. Yes, from out of state. I've had a setup at every CanJam/National Meet (despite not being local to most of them except for the 2007 one), it's part of why I go!
Speaking of that, I don't suppose the organizers have any plans to support members who want to send their gear in from out-of-state? I already have someone in mind for myself but I'd imagine most people don't have a trusted contact in SoCal.
Btw, for the CanJam newbies here are the impressions threads from 2006 (NYC), 2007 (San Jose, CA), 2008 (Fort Lauderdale, FL), 2009 (Los Angeles, CA), and 2010 (Rosemont/Chicago, IL) respectively:
This just might be the perfect opportunity!!
Yes, of course! But if I may, I'd like to take a moment to explain why it's better to get the pass online.
Between the lot of us in Team CanJam, we have quite a bit of experience with shows and meets by now. One of the perennial bottlenecks at any given show is the check-in process. To help minimize the painful wait associated with that, we have invested in a pretty darned cool (technical term) check-in and badge printing system. Those of you who pre-register will be able to bring your Eventbrite printout (or its QR code on your phone) and have us scan it. As soon as the code is recognized, your badge will start printing automagically, while CanJam staff hands you a lanyard and badge holder. That's it, you're now in the show!
If you don't register online, you'll have to fill-in your badge information on the spot... which will take some time. If you elect to hand us cash (do you have any idea how many people have touched that?! ), we may or may not have to make change for you depending on the denomination you hand us. Even if you use a card, we'll have to swipe it and wait on the Interwebs processing of said card. As a result of any/all that, you'll slow down the line for those in back of you waiting to check-in. Basically, you're gonna be THAT guy trying to write a check at a store. Please, don't be THAT guy...
Also, please note that passes are available for online purchase up to an hour before the show opens. So even if you're not sure that you'll make it, and have a schedule that is heavily in flux, you can still take advantage of online purchasing up to the proverbial last minute.
Or... tl;dr version for those who skip:
Please purchase your ticket online!
Anyway, I think we should start listing the gears that we'll bring early, so that we'll have an impressive list of stuffs to incentivize more folks to join. (also may be a good estimate of how much space members will need for their gears)
And I'll go first, of course.
If we have enough space for members' gears, I'll be bringing my end-game rig, which consists of:
Hifiman HE-560 (grill mod, partial fuzzor mod, other secret sauces)
Bill-P's DIY amp prototype 01
Neko Audio D100 Mk.II DAC
AMB Gamma2 (being used as transport, I may pick up something else when I have the time)
