Impressions Thread: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/music-city-meet-nashville-spring-2018-march-3-impressions.873628/ Date/Time: Spring 2018, Saturday March 3rd / 10 am CT Start (9 am for setup) Location: About an hour east of Nashville, 2 hours north of Chattanooga, 2 hours west of Knoxville 1847 Puckett Point Rd, Smithville, TN 37166 Best approach: I-40 to Exit #273 that is TN56 South. Cross the bridge, then Puckett Point Rd will be on your left. Tom's house is a ways down (1.7 miles) Puckett Point Rd, on the left side. For the people coming from Kentucky on I65, I don't recommend getting off the interstate before exit 38 in KY due to small curvy country road driving for many hours. Thus i recommend exit 38 or exit 2 in KY. Parking: The house is on the left side of the road with a driveway that can hold 4 cars (2 must be compact). Across the street there is a light blue garage, that is also mine, it has another 6-8 parking spaces, plus parking on grass as needed (just past the house on the left side of the road and around the garage, making sure not to block my neighbors driveways). Food: I'll have something to eat, not sure what yet (possibly chili if cold outside, or grill something if it is warmer out). Feel free to bring food and drinks to share. Beverage: Alcohol is allowed, even encouraged! Here's the link to the impressions from a previous meet in Spring, 2016: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/mus...ring-2016-pictures-impressions-thread.804569/ Looking forward to see everyone again! Sunday after the meet: Depending on weather, Pontoon boat ride on the lake for anyone still in town. Vendors: Audeze Rep is planning on being here. Schitt Rep is planning on being here.
