Please note the new time!!!!!

The MD/VA/DC Head-Fi meet will be on Saturday March 18th from 2:00-7:00ish.


Please PM me with the gear you are planning to bring and I'll post a list here.

I will host the meet at my house. Please note that we have two cats and a dog. If you are alergic to animal hair you might want to skip the meet or get all good and drugged up for it so you won't be sneezing like a mad wild fiend.

DIRECTIONS:
Here's my address:



It's pretty easy to get to, just Mapquest it and you'll be fine. PM me if you have any questions about getting here.

FOOD: Some people have asked about food and here's my policy. You can bring whatever you want for yourself to eat, that's fine. I'm not preparing a spread or anything, I just don't have the time nor do I want to deal with it. I will provide soda and water for people. I usually buy coke, spirte, something diet and of course we have water. If you want to bring a six-pack of soda, be my guest.

In the past we've all chipped in to get some pizza...that's fine. If you want to do this bring small bills. We can't all pay with $20s

Paypal fees apply for the pizza

I'm in, either one's fine, with a small preference to the earlier.

If it's on the 18th, depending on how my spring break plans end up, I will likely be able to come.

I can't possibly make the 25th.

So far the 18th is winning. I'll finalize a date on 3/3 according to the poll.

I will host it at my house. I will post directions and my address closer to the date. But to give you an idea, I live in College Park, MD right off exit 25 of the beltway (I-495).

I'll post more details in a week or so. If people want to PM me what they are planning on bringing then I'll get working on a gear list.

Cheers,
Stephen

Thrice: Good afternoon, I am interested in joining the members, but never attended a meet. My Beyerdynamics DT990's are to come back from the service center in N.Y., (and I could use all the advice I can get), so I would bring those. I have no amp or other wires though, so what else could I do to contribute? Looking at the 18th, coming from Norfolk,Virginia Beach area of Virginia so I'm pretty close to the neighborhood. Are there any good dealers in that area that you recommend? Thanks, see you then.
