    Screw that old guy, all this talk about Tuzzi's made me go out and get some for dinner tonight-

    100_4642.sized.jpg

    Yum, yum. I could eat just that for food during the gathering and skip the grilling. It's really up to what people want. I like to grill, I like pizza... that half-sheet cost $7.50 by the way.
    Ludicrous gibs!

    Closed??? Damn, I was going to swing by and pick up Scott, Ben, John, Mike, Tony, Geoff, Al and Hedy, Ken and Polk Paul. They will be very disappointed.

    actually guys my plans changed. I was going to use this event to meet Sal and pick up those sda-srs2's he has but the little lady has a little extra time at memorial day than we thought so we will meet him then. Maybe I can make the next one.

    Yeah, well, my house only has x amount of room for people and gear. jdhdiggs offered his house to host, which would have more room, but he's down in York, IIRC. If people want to move it to there, that's fine, but I'm not driving to York with my SDA's :)
    Ludicrous gibs!

    Obviously you have forgotten how huge Sal is. You are going to need one hell of a giant shoe horn to get him through the door.:D

    For you Polkies headed up to Noah's place, one of the best Dynaco ST-70 rebuilder/sellers i located in Buckhorn about 10 or 15 miles from Noah's place. I have bought several pieces of vintage tube gear from him over the years. His workmanship, quality and reputation are impeccable. He has about 1400 eBay feedbacks with a 100% rating. His Audiogon reputation is also excellent. And he's a real nice guy. He has one or two Dynaco's listed on Audiogon now, look Here.

    I don't want to thread jack, but here is an opportunity to get a rebuilt vintage Dynaco without the cost or risk of shipping.

    i've got the date penciled in, but i can't say lock me in. a couple of things could happen that would knock me out. sorry for that, i know i'm a fookhead that way. if it creates a problem, say the word and i'll just beep the horn and shake my fist if i'm cruising by on 80 that day.

    other than that, if i make it i'll bring a pair of analysis plus oval 9's if there's any interest. and, in fair warning for the space situation too, i gained about 25 pounds while my leg was on the mend that i haven't gotten off yet...

    Nadam, its nice if i go, but this is a place where you guys gather to listen music, i hate the thoughts deaf guy take over another potential people who want to attend to listen music and have fun. I am not saying i wont have fun, but i understand how people who would want to attend and cant able to due to small space. So please let anyone else take over my spot unless you dont mind extra, i could take break from family for a day, its your house dude ! :D. thanks for asking. Have fun guys. Let me know what your experience afterward so i can be good host in tampa hopefully in August.
