    AR member meetings? Bay Area AR's
    Hey Gang,

    I wanted to see how many of you live in the Bay Area and if there would be any interest in meetings, for members to meet each other in REAL LIFE and listen to some music together or maybe watch a flick or two.

    I would be willing to host, although I live down in Santa Cruz, not sure how many people could make it down there. Ideas? Thoughts?

    Now this sounds interesting Eric. Have you had any bites? I sure game for a nice drive to Santa Cruz to hang out with a audiohead. I would coax Woochifer to come with me, maybe offer him some great beer I stole from Worf!

    Beer and Tunes
    You're the first repsonse!

    Beer and tunes sounds like a great idea. Whats a good time? I've got a killer commute lately, so weekends are probably best, what do you think?

    Eric,
    The weekends are probably better for the both of us. My weeknights have been killer for about 6 months now. Seems when you think you have a little time, something always seems to come out of nowhere.

    If you guys don't mind a relative newbie to AR, then count me in. I don't mind making the trek to the Bay area just to see some of you guys in person.

    Nick, we'd be happy to have you. Rotating sounds like a good idea, Sam. How often? Once a month? Once every two months? Saturday afternoons/evenings
    We can make it a set night, say the third saturday of every month, or the host can choose which saturday. I'd prefer the latter as I go out of town often, and this would make it more flexible for me.

    IThis will be fun. Guests can bring a six pack and some music, and we can check out each others systems, maybe bring our own gear to swap in and hear on a different system. Although I doubt I will be wanting to pack up my Klipsch Cornwalls and haul 'em over around the bay area!

    -Eric

    Wooch, you interested? Worf, aren't you in the bay area too?

    I think once a month would be great...although in reality it might end up being once every two months. But we are all just looking to hang out with others who share the same passion...so either way it's all good :)

    Maybe we could just set the month and location schedule and then the host would pick the exact weekend?

    Anyone else interested? The more the better!

    Now THIS could be intriguing! I didn't know that you could grow beer and roll that stuff up down in Santa Cruz. And the idea of carpooling with T, that could be interesting! :)

    Anyway, keep me posted! If I ever offer up my place, I'll have to get the dog's permission. He's got the best hearing in the house, so he sits in the sweet spot. If you want to claim his spot, unfortunately my wife isn't keen on the idea of anybody "marking" the territory for themselves!

    Im a relative newbie here as well and dont post that much but constantly wander around the site. Im in SF and dont own a car, so if I could catch a lift with someone I would definitely be interested. Weekends especially Sunday's would work well with me.

    Cheers,
    Glenn

    Hi Glenn,


    it would be great if you join us! If we plan it right, you could catch BART out to Pleasanton and then I can pick you up. When we do it at my place, this would be really easy.

    Wooch,
    You have one nice looking dog. My place is also open. Now that its just a listening/temp mixing space, maybe I can get more than two people in there comfortably.

    Thank You Sam. That sounds like a plan to me. I will keep checking in to see what happens.

    If you audio heads ever get a night going like that again, count me in! It sounds like a perfect night out of the ordinary.

    It never happened!
    Everyone was expressing interest and I proposed a night, but then just every stopped talking about it! I'm going to have to plan another day..
