ZENFEST WHO'S COMING?
09/22/11 at 18:32:26
 
Hi all,

I'm getting excited that Zenfest is just around the corner.  Julie and I made our hotel res.  There are definitely going to be some interesting new products etc this year.  

So who's coming and what are you bringing?    I'll have Buzz' GGG mod preamp for show and tell.  And some imported beer to ice down.  I can't wait to get together with old friends and meet some new ones.

Hi Steve: I'm presuming Buzz's GG pre has the opticoupler mod(s) for volume/balance &c.?
Should be interesting.
Hoping your post impressions somewhere along the way!
Best,
don

Hi Don,

You are correct.  And also all of his tweaks except for no remote control.  I'm getting lazy in my old age, but I am still willing to get up to adjust the stereo.  Those of you who went to the last Hornfest had a chance to hear it there.  I don't want to post impressions here because I think it's important for people to form their own first impression without me "coaching" them so close to the fest...  I think Buzz is really on to something though.

I'm wondering who/when everyone is expecting to be at Zen Fest? I have Friday through the weekend off and just wondered when would be the best time to meet other Decheads? It is only a hour and a half drive for me so I plan on being there sometime early Friday afternoon and leaving the option for Saturday and Sunday open.

I'l be there Friday....

Donnie, I think a lot of people  use Friday as there travel day. Some show up later Friday, or come in Saturday morning. It seems to go that way most Decfests. We usually go out to breakfast Saturday morning, with all of us getting together for Breakfast Sunday.

Come when you can, we'll be there!

As I shared with Bob yesterday, I have now had to cancel my tentative plans to be at ZenFest. Unfortunately, I have an East Coast turnaround that Friday and Sunday. Just no way to be there. And while SWMBO is very supportive of my addiction, er, hobby, there is a limit.

I hope, and know, y'all will have a great time. I enjoy and respect this audio community more than any other, and I sure wish I was there to share that feeling in person.

Rock on!

Greg

We are looking into making arrangements to attend this year. Which hotels are the closest to the Fest? Hoping to stay where some other attendees stay in order to catch a ride.

There is a Hampton that is by the Riverboat Casino. Nice place, I've stayed there a couple of times. The Casino also has a hotel. I'm lucky enough to be close enough to drive up from home. I always make sure that I eat at Ming's when I am in East Peoria.

RR, I think there are a few other people staying at the Hampton. If not, call me on my cell, someone, if not me will come and pick you up. We can then look for someone at the fest staying at the Hampton.

540-455-1500 is my cell number,

I just completed my travel arrangements. My wife and I will attend.  We will arrive in Peoria Friday at around 10:00 P.M. The return flight is 11:00 A.M. on Sunday.

I have not booked a hotel yet. I am thinking of either the Hampton Inn East Peoria or Fairfield East Peoria. The Fairfield is somewhat less than the Hampton. Is anybody staying at the Fairfield?

We are staying at the Fairfield. Is anybody else booked there? The significant difference in price between that and the Hampton did not justify staying at the Hampton.
