APRIL 2012 - SW Florida MiniFest

Post by Toy Maker » Wed Feb 01, 2012 1:47 pm

Just giving a heads up to anyone interested in coming down for a single day, or a few days...

The Pittsburgh Tom''s will be down again visiting for their annual 1-week "It's too damn cold up here" vacation. (SOMETIME in early April)
There are no solid dates yet, but we will nail things down a little better as the time gets closer.

Bring your own booze and cigars. Food and drinks are usually up for discussion. We have almost any store you'd want to shop at within a few miles.

Everyone is welcome to come and hang. DaveS is retired and is home all day. I will come and go a few times throughout the week.
So anyone wanting to come down, hang out, and listed to the best of what we have, bring your CDP and some CD's or your hard-drive, and we will make sure it's well worth your trip.

By April, I expect Dave's set of prototype ALS should have all the production mods done to them, and are already running off his Silver-9 Tube amps.

Sleeping bags and air-mattresses are welcome. But private rooms are not really doable. 3 bedroom house, and all 3 rooms are full already. So sleeping quarters will be up to you.

Here is the Google link to the house, if anyone needs it. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=1002+11th ... 1&t=m&z=17

Anyone coming down is more than welcome to come by the shop as well. We will have a few of the ALS in production, and or assembly around that time.

If you are thinking about making a trip down, Call Dave and let him know. 239-772-9341

Tom and I are going to be figuring out the exact dates very soon.

I am thinking I should have a good idea by the end of next week as to when I will be able to take time off of work to come down.

Can't wait to be in sunny FL, though today the temp in Pittsburgh is not bad at 54 degree's.

Roy like you have far to go buddy!
Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

I should not jinx things by making a comment. And since Pittsburg is southwest of me you would think it would be warmer than in the Pocono Mountains, this has been an incredibly mild winter so far only one occurance of shovelable snow so far this year. What more could you ask for aint that right Eddy?

Two days ago picking grapefruits and oranges off of the fruit trees. \:D/ Day later, you boys up North sent the cold down here in Florida. Yesterday, low 30. Today, low 32. ](*,) However, calling for high of 80 by end of week. =D>
