Virometal and I are going to hook up on July 23rd and anybody interested is invited!

[size=medium]Location[/size]

I teach at Texas Christian University in Ft. Worth, Texas. We've been given permission to use one of the Executive MBA classrooms in the new Smith Entrepreneurs Hall for our meet. These rooms feature six crescent-shaped continuous desks at which we should be able to set up at least 12 listening stations with (of course) ample, comfortable seating. Each of these desks has close-by power available. If you're interested, here is a link to the School's website:

Smith Entrepreneurs Hall (driving directions below)

If you need a hotel room for the night before or after, click here and scroll to the bottom: Hotels

[size=medium]Schedule[/size]

9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. - set up and start jammin'
12:30 p.m. - order pizza in for a quick lunch
5:00 or 5:30 p.m. - for those who are interested, go to bahamaman's house for a drink, afterward to a nearby restaurant (casual)

________________


If you want to come, let me know what you are bringing and we can hammer out details.

Driving directions to Smith Entrepreneur's Hall (whose address is 2900 Lubbock Avenue, Ft. Worth, Texas):

1. If you're coming to Ft. Worth from the east or west on I-30, go south on University Drive (which exit is located a few miles west of the downtown area). After about two miles, you will pass through the middle of campus. Just after passing through campus, you will be at the corner of University and Berry Street (look for Shell station on the right). Turn left on Berry. Go four blocks, turn left on Lubbock.

After going straight through the first stop sign on Lubbock, you will begin to see some campus buildings on the left. Smith Hall is the third building on the left. There are a couple parking lots adjacent to Smith that should be pretty open (in the summer on a Saturday). I'll post signs at various doors to guide you. The meet is in Room 328.

2. If you're coming on I-35, exit at Berry Street (which exit is located a few miles south of the downtown area). Go west on Berry. After 2 miles, you'll see a Domino's on the left. Turn right at this street (which is Lubbock). (Note: if you find yourself at an intersection with a 7-11 on the left and the TCU Bookstore on the right, you've gone about four blocks too far!) After turning right on Lubbock, see the paragraph immediately above to guide you the rest of the way.

GS - glad you're planning to join us! The Dynahi v. Headcode should be epic. By way of full disclosure, the Headcode is not presently in my possession but delivery by then has been assured.

I could also probably come, as I should be in Austin at the time.

I'd have:
Sony SA5000
Shure E5
Benchmark DAC1

and maybe I'll bring my whole PC tower like I've done at the LA meets

I think that should be no problem if I come. After what you went through, I'm sure you'd be glad to ride up there with me


The Houston one is a no-go for me, like I said since I am going out of town to CA starting wednesday evening until monday evening.

Outstanding! The more the merrier.

ReDVision - just pm me when you know for sure and let me know what equipment you will bring.

[AK]Zip - glad to have you joining us. I'll add your equipment to the list later this evening.

To all - more details (time/place/map/etc.) should be forthcoming in the next few days.

July 23rd... I might be able do that. I'll make plans to go. It should be easy for some of us Houstonians to carpool (and it would be a good idea for those of us who would rather buy a new amp than a new car.)
