    If she doesn't mind, I don't see why not.

    I could go, although I am relatively new to this forum, I'd love to see that Epson projector (I have a Mits HC1500) as well as a sub face off.

    As long as its only for evaluation purpose. You like it, you go and buy the album. You don't, you destroy the CD. :)

    Shouldn't be a problem to be there unless work gets screwy.

    Thanx for putting this together Sami!!!

    Edited To Add: Looks Like the TVC won't even ship till the week of the 15th. So I won't be able to bring it.

    What time is everyone thinking of coming, and are you just stopping by or hanging out, or will it depend on attendance? :)

    So far, I don't have the night off, but I plan on being there, what 11am or so? Noon? I've got to bail by 3.

    11am or so is a good time to start. Russ, you have to work on the night pass...

    BTW, I tried to give you a call this afternoon, I picked up a Sony TA-E9000ES close by your house on Eldorado. Oh well, I'll have to check your inventory some other time and it's not like I need anything. :)

    You always "need" something....or your not really an audio nut.
    CTC BBQ Amplifier, Sonic Frontiers Line3 Pre-Amplifier and Wadia 581 SACD player. Speakers? Always changing but for now, Mission Argonauts I picked up for $50 bucks, mint.

    I'm planning on dropping by after lunch if that works. I have to run out to Florida on Sunday so am kind of in the same boat as Russ.

    Just found out I have to work this weekend. I might be able to drop by around noon and hang for a couple hours. Then I'm headed for Oklahoma for a couple days.

    Florida sounds better.

    Is this the first time that two mini-PF's are happening at once?

    In that case I'll go and get another case of Warsteiner. BTW, it still is BYOB but I will have a few cold ones in reserves in case someone forgets and gets thirsty. If anyone drinks girly drinks, well, they are on their own... :)

    Keys will be collected on the person(s) who aren't able to drive anyone!!!

    I like that attitude Russ.

    Hmmm.....

    While I can't adopt the exact same attitude, I can go in later in the evening. Make up the difference on Sunday.

    So, Let's just say I'll be there and don't know what time I will be leaving.

    I thought about firing up the grill but then I thought it will take a lot of the attention away from the actual purpose. Once people get hungry we can always order in food. I'll probably make some homemade salsa so bring a bag of chips. :)

    Ok guys, I will see you tomorrow. We have 10 yes votes, 2 tentative, and only 5 or so have asked me directions so far...hope you haven't forgotten and are still planning to come. A few of you know where I live already so I'm not too concerned.

    Not sure if that would work, Burleson is about 30 miles away. Of course, I've never heard you shout so who knows. :)

    If you have the room in your vehicle, we could try to find time if possible. If not, then we don't. If it is an extra hassle then I would bring only two of them.

    Sami, I'm stuck like chuck. My girl walked off with both sets of keys this morning, and she's in downtown Dallas taking a test all day. Unreal.
