Still a long ways off, but I. I might attend. Anyone got an extra bed? I'd probably come the night before and leave the day of

Please bring the EC Balancing Act. Put in a a dark corner away from everyone so I can sit and listen to a few albums uninterrupted. That thing is pure magic.

 
It's even better now. After one of my PX4 tubes croaked, I replaced them with EML 300B Mesh. I like them even better than the PX4's.
 
Balderon also has a BA, with the EML's. We both use the same input tube as well, so you have two to choose from.

Since the two smaller rooms that we used last time are side by side, and cheaper, I think they would be the way to go. Being on the first floor is a bonus. With two smaller rooms, IMHO it's easier
to keep an eye on things as well.
 
It's too bad they closed off the west side entrance. That was very convenient at the first meet we had there.

It definitely was, I could ask when we go to make reservations if opening that entrance could be a possibility. 
 
Anyways, looking forward to seeing everyone again. I'm hoping temps cool down by September. It's supposed to be 120F this Sunday and Monday, so I'm already not much looking forward to the summer weather.

  So, for dates it looks like we got September 10th, 17th, or 24th as our options (Granted, we still have to see which days the library has available!). Anyway, which of these dates look to work the best for everyone?


Whichever is cooler :)
 
All are OK for me.

 The entrance has been completely rebuilt, so there is no door there. You would need a big glass cutter to get in now.
