Apologies for any confusion...  I am a newbie on Head-Fi, infrequent poster but serious lurker and was quite infected and joined on January 2011.  Upon learning that Larry, Marylin and Tim
have been active supporters of  Head-F I asked when another meet was planned, and here I am. After discussion it was decided that we should not forgo sponsors, demo's and door prizes
so the date has been moved to accommodate lead times that will allow a great meet.
 
The meet will be at Custom Electronics, Omaha, NE from 11:00 to 4:00, Saturday, May 19, 2012. I will update more info as it is arranged.
 
Thanks,
Douger333

So I have been talking to the boss, and sounds like she is happy to provide a sponsorship for the meet.  I am pushing for the following:
 
-Discounted Spirit World Deli meal, free dessert, etc
-Discounted entry to Bourbon tasting the evening of May 19th
-Raffle Prize(s): potentially tshirt(s), giftcard(s), and/or Glencairn Whisk(e)y glasswear
 
I will report back with the final details.
 
For headfi'ers who are whisk(e)y drinkers, the tasting will be the kickoff to our new Bourbon Club, which I am personally excited for.  We are potentially tasting products from Hudson Bourbon and possibly the new Woodford Reserve Double Oak.  Additionally I am in the process of hand selecting a special one-off single cask of a whiskey for the store (I am keeping it a secret for now).  We will unveil this single cask bottling as one of the whiskeys at the tasting.
 
Btw, count me in for the meet!

Now is a good time to make sure you are reserving the date...  I will bring my Grado SR325i's, RS1i's, and possibly PS500's, along with HiFiMan HE500's and probably my Bottlehead Smack amp.
If so I may also bring Denon 2000's...
 
We are sure to have a nice event like Custom always puts on!
