    I figured I'd throw this up to see if there was any interest in another Calgary meet. Dale S and I had briefly touched on this in another thread. If you would be interested, throw your name on the list, and we'll see what develops. If there are no other offers for hosting, I would be happy to have it at my place. I would like to limit the number of people to roughly 5 or 6, my room will only fit 5 comfortably.
    Regards,
    Stacey

    There's a good chance I'd make the drive from Lethbridge just to meet some HTFers. Saturdays are good for me.

    Since I was mentioned, of course you can count me in. As you mentioned only 5 or 6 attendees, are we going to try and arrange another HT store visit? Or should we keep this one limited to meeting at a member's house (presumably yours) to have a demo of their setup?
    Either way is fine by me... I'ld just be happy to see what others have done with their theaters and how they look/sound in person. Pretty much any weekend outside of the Calgary Stampede weekends are good for me. I've got family in town for the Stampede so my weekends during that period (July 6th to 15th) are tied up.

    Hi guys...
    I just wanted to throw the following dates up.
    July 7th
    July 14th
    I would prefer the 14th, but could possibly work the 7th if needed. What do you guys think?
    I would prefer to do a demo/listen/watch session only. I really don't feel like going out to a retail vendor. Let's just have it at my place and see what happens. Is there anything specific that we want to watch or do? I would like to spend some time with Michael asking questions in regards to the video portion of my system. Hopefully those that attend don't mind getting into a question/answer period.
    I have a couple of friends that may want to attend. We'll have a comfortable evening either way.
    Post your thoughts and ideas.
    Thanks,
    Stacey

    Unfortunately neither of those dates work for me. I mentioned this in my earlier message, but since I have family in town for Stampede, I'm tied up both of those weekends.
    If you can see your way to moving it to the 21st or 28th of July, I'ld be happy to attend. Otherwise I guess I'll have to pass.
    As for the content, anything that you feel shows off the highlights of your theater would be great. I also like the idea of a Q/A period with Michael, but only if he's agreeable to it. After all, he does make money with his expertise. [​IMG]
    Thanks....

    Dale...
    Let me see what I can do in regards to the date. My July is pretty full, but I may be able to shuffle some stuff around.
    It is up to Michael as to how much "inside" info he is willing to give up. By no means is he obligated to share all with us. I am simply looking for a short Q&A period where he could share a few tips.
    Regards,
    Stacey

    Greetings
    Q/A ... You will have to run that past my Agent. [​IMG]
    Stacey ... do you have HD yet? Shall we(I) hook up the HD signal generator ? (A demo of the VA-1 laptop analyzer?)
    either the 7th or 14th work for me right now unless (a job calls)
    Regards

    While I am trying hard, it seems that the only night I can do this is the 14th. Dale, I would be happy to have another at a later date so that you can attend.
    Michael...I do not have a HD feed...yet! It would be great if you could bring over some of your toys for us to look at and play with [​IMG]
    I have confirmation from 2 others, so that would make 4 so far.
    Any others interested...leave a post and we'll fit you in.

    Hi Stacey,
    Well, as it stands I MIGHT be able to make a July 14th event. I'm just trying to find out from my family what is planned for that day/night, and so far it looks like I can duck out of whatever they have planned. So let's leave it for the 14th and if things work out, great.
    Let us know for sure and I'll try and get my confirmation by the end of the long weekend. TTYL..

    I cannot do the 14th so I guess I'll have to sit this one out.

    Consider me confirmed for the 14th. I have persuaded the family that even if they are coming from Vancouver, I can't be expected to spend my ENTIRE vacation with them. [​IMG] Actually they were quite understanding and told me to go enjoy myself.
    Looking forward to checking out your theater in person Stacey... ttyl!

    Glad to hear that at least a few will be attending. As it sits right now, we are confirmed with 5 people. As we get closer to the 14th, I will email you all the address of my place.
    See you guys then,
    Stacey

    I always wanted to go to Alberta for some skiing. Maybe we could do some combined ski/Home theater trip?

    I am interested in yet another Calgary meet. Throw me on the list as well. We'll wait to see if there is some more interest before deciding what exactly we'd like to do, see, etc. If Michael TLV is interested, maybe we can talk him into hosting one again. I'd really like to see his system running Hi-def again. Maybe we can start at my place, and then switch to his place. (Obviously, only if Michael is interested in doing this).

    Regards,

    Stacey

    Would be interested in doing it this time, as I've missed them all before. Have you guys talked to some of the dealers in town to see if we could take over the place for an afternoon? [​IMG] Get some demos of some new product or something? I wonder what CES products will trickle down to Calgary dealers?
