Iowa/Midwest gathering Sept 1

I want to invite Haven members to an annual audio gathering that I host at my place. Hope this ok to post here. I welcome anyone that appreciates audio. I’ve copied the following from another site.

I want to invite everyone to a gathering at my place in rural Central Iowa on September 1. (We’re several miles south of Melbourne) That’s the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. I chose Sunday since my business won’t be open and we can use the whole property. It should also allow for some flexibility for travelers. Hopefully that will work for anyone interested in attending.

Inside, there are several systems and spots to set up any equipment that people bring. In the past we’ve set up a couple buy/sell/trade tables in the garage and will again, if there is interest. We recently added a large deck (partially shaded) to the front of the business. I think it’ll be a nice spot to relax and listen to the boombox (trailer rig). Everyone is welcome to bring some equipment, favorite tunes or just yourselves.

For people that would be traveling, we have some nice spots for camping if you’d like to stay overnight. If you would like to bring an RV, we have a couple of spots with electricity. The nearest hotels are 25 minutes away.

We typically kick off the shindig late morning and Grill/potluck for lunch. Bring a side to share if you like but it’s not required. I’ll provide a variety of beverages. If you’d like something specific, feel free to bring a cooler. If you’re planning on hanging around for the duration, it might be a good idea to bring some extra snacks since there won’t be a formal supper.

If you are planning on attending, let me know in this thread. I will send out PMs with my address and directions. I’m looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting some new ones.

Would love to come, but that day is my wife's birthday and I'm not so sure she'd appreciate me missing it.

Course, it might be the best gift I could give her. :D

Good idea. I can't imagine a better way to celebrate her birthday than at an audio gathering. :)

Bring her with. What’s a better birthday gift than a countryside, weekend escape?

I completely understand.

I’m hoping to attend. If I’m able to, I’ll bring a smattering of audio toys and some trade goods.
