    Nice area Canton but you'll be way off course. Clinton is 1.5 hrs for me and I'm just South of Hartford.

    I just talked with Frank - he sounds much stronger than when I talked to him 5 weeks ago.
    He said that the back room will not be available.
    Available will be his shop, the hallways adjacent to his shop, the back and upstairs hallways and a few nooks and crannies as usual.
    For people looking to set up systems I recommend bringing some long extension cords and perhaps a light or two.

    As usual - we will make the best of what we have!

    Glad to hear Frank is improving and looking forward to seeing him and everyone else.

    Just one week away - spread the word on any social media sites you may frequent as well as other audio forums.

    I'll be flying back from warmer climes Friday evening unless the airline Gods decide to detour me - but I'll always be reachable here if something pops up.

    mikey - yes and no.
    You need to be a subscriber (a paltry $25 a year) and list your items onthe Barter Town thread.
    AK rules don't allow items for sale in the general access threads (like this one).

    Subscribe or bring it all - we love surprises.
    Keep in mind though that we are (to put in nicely) a frugal crowd, and also most of us have been doing this for a while. So, unless the items are appropriately priced or unique/rare you may have a challenge moving them on.

    5 MORE DAYS!

    Nothing defeats the "winter blues" like a scenic ride out to Clinton! Can't wait to buy some crap I don't need, shoot the shit with the AK crowd, wander aimlessly around the ol' factory, and hoist a beer or two with damn good people (I hope everybody likes Sierra Nevada beer)! Yee-hawwwwww.....

    I got some new young guys coming to join in the festivities! A co-worker and a friend or two of his heading over from Boston! Hey, they might even buy something!

    I am all packed up and ready for tomorrow. :) I have a couple of pair of Sansui speakers, a pair of Cerwin Vega's that need woofer surrounds, A tandberg cassette deck for free that needs some TLC, And a Panasonic reel to reel along with some CD players. I also have a really nice Mitsubishi DA-P20 Pre-amp that is in excellent condition for sale. Hope to see you all there.....:banana:
