    SURE!!! No walls to hear the little mewling and whining. And the laws on bestiality are very relaxed around that area, also!;)

    (Sorry, I just couldn't pass on that one!!!:D )

    Dan,

    Why would you WANT to come. You don't like me (I've got the emails to prove it) and we don't have gear that you particularly care for.

    So, what would be the point?

    I have no problem with anyone coming but the fact remains, you don't care for SDA. You don't like Carver. You weren't impressed with the Carver Amazings. My wire and cabling is not up to your standards. You don't care for the RTi line and you think separates for them is a waste of time. There won't be much in the way of HT and even if I did, I'm sure mine isn't up to your standards based on the wiring alone. I just don't see what the attraction would be.

    Hey Troy,
    What are we doing exactly at this gathering?

    Friday - ?

    Saturday - ?

    Sunday - ?

    Because I will have school that Friday, and I really cant afford to miss any days of school because I will get behind in my work, so if yall are just gathering together and talking etc, I will probally come after school and will arrive around 8-9pm that day. If yall are demoing gear, I will definetely be there friday!

    Now Saturday I plan to be there to hear the gear...

    Sunday, what is going on? If nothing to major it going on we will probally leave that morning

    Also, are we aloud to sleep on the floor? We dont much want to get a Hotel, my mom being unemployed and all - so, we can get one, but if we could stay at your place, it would be nice.

    At this point in time, we plan to come.

    Me, Des, My Mom...

    I might bring my B&K amp (not sure)....

    Sid,

    Friday night is pretty much going to be a hamburgers/hotdogs and so forth type event.

    Saturday is the big day so even if you guys came down early on Saturday (It's about 3 hours from here to Rock Hill, SC so figure drive time accordingly) you would be ok that way.

    Sunday is pretty much up to everyone what they want to do, hang out, play golf....whatever.

    Sure, you guys can help yourself to some floor if you like. I have a pull out sofa in the mancave which your mom can have.

    Coolio on the amp.

    Sorry....nevermind. Bad day. Bad mood.

    Dan, if you want to come, come. I'll do my best to be a gracious host.


    Sean,

    Man, I'm not sure about local pet friendly hotels. Off the top of my melon, I'm drawing a blank. Have you thought about boarding them at a local kennel? We board our dog when we travel, it runs about ten bucks a day. That said, I'll see what I can come up with.

    Hmmm....

    I may bring some B&K gear if I can arrange a way to haul it - I could haul the original boxes down there, that will get em there in one piece....

    See how my gear measures up to the others down there...

    No idea, I would bring my Definitives if I had a larger vehicle, but they are also hard to setup, and with limited time....

    Someone must bring a SVS and HSU...so we can do a sub shootout :cool:

    I cant wait to hear the Carver Amazings!
