    I have a date set of Saturday, June 27th for a Rockford Audio Society get together at my place. I am unable to host a large get together at this time. Due to work and parent care issues, it will only be a one day thing with ~10-12 people. I am doing a head count of Rockford Audio Society members that will attend. I am located near I80/I55, West of Joliet, IL.

    So far, Noel, John, messiah and concealer have expressed interest. It would be mostly two channel with my stuff, Polk SDA CRS+, Monitor 7's with Peerless tweets, and who knows what else. Most times we have more gear than we can get to in a day. Vinyl and digital are both enjoyed and respected here. The surround setup may be where the wife goes to escape, so that could be off limits.;)

    Count me in as a definite maybe.:)

    I don't have much in the way of gear to bring. I'd offer up my Peerless 7A's, but Rich already has a pair, so there wouldn't be much of a point...lol

    I asked you guys to photo shop me into the pics! Sorry I missed this one, I know you guys had a good time. I've been to Rich's before and he's a gracious host.

    Again I urge all polkies that live close to each other to have these get togethers. The RAS does it every few months and it's always a great time!
