Hi Folks!

First I would like to thank Bob with Creative Sound Solutions for telling me about this forum and inviting me to post our event here.

There will be an audio fair and swap meet at the Cultus Lake Community Hall, 4220 Columbia Valley Highway, Cultus Lake, BC on Sunday, September 29th from 10AM to 4 PM.

CSS (Creative Sound Solutions) is a sponsor of the event.

The focus will be on good DIY and commercial gear, vinyl, CD's, speakers parts and cables.

If you are bringing gear as a user, we would like to know as we need to coordinate efforts to keep things tidy and not an acoustic mess with several systems playing at once.

There will be one showcase area where you can choose an amplifier, preamp, speakers, etc. If you have music on CD or vinyl, you may bring it.

Admission is free (but feel free to donate).

As I cannot yet post links or email addresses, pics of the hall and directions can be found by Googling "Cultus Lake Community Hall"

There are accommodations for out of town folk in the form of local hotels, motels and cabins.

Coffee and tea will be provided by donation and we're working on getting a food cart to attend.

More info to come as available.

Please post questions and we will be able to get back to you as soon as possible.

Cheers!

EDIT by Mike P.

But I can. :wave:

First post edited to include required information.
Thanks Mike, Gregg, and Al.

We're having another meeting next Tuesday to look over the facility so we can work out the layout for the tables, listening area, etc. So far the prize donations include some CSS kits, new tweeters, and something from Mark Fenlon of Mark Audio who will be visiting Canada at that time and hopes to attend. Tickets will be sold for the various prizes.

Music only this round. This will be our inaugural year. If there's a tonne of HT enthusiasts, we might do a second room with the HT thing next year ;)

Also it appears that we will have the great honour of having an audio talk by Mark Fenlon of Mark Audio!

Cheers!

We visited the location today and tried to think through a layout for the tables, listening area, etc. It's pretty basic but that's OK for the first year.

If you want me to bring anything please let me know as there are deals and you obviously don't have to pay shipping.

It's pretty easy to find, folks.

Follow the signs to Cultus Lake and the community hall will be on your left hand side.

If you cross the bridge and find yourself in a roundabout (traffic circle), you've gone too far. Just go right around the roundabout and head back. The sign will be obvious.

Just to update on the food, it will be basics, BBQ hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. No crab cakes or pate du foie gras on saffron crackers ;)

Cheers!

Hi Folks,

We have reached our limit for vendors and sellers, so tables are now closed.

Looking forward to seeing what they have for us!

Visited Al today and the list of speakers which might be ready for show continues to grow.

Also heard from Parts Express that there will be a donation to the event; details to follow.

Mark Fenlon's donation arrived today.

I'm very intrigued and will certainly try my best to be in attendance, I'll also pass the word along to the rest of the SFU Acoustic Engineering Club. I have a pair of StudioLab phase inversion monitors that I rebuilt recently. Should I bring those along to show? The Acoustic Eng Club is also working on a DIY beamforming soundbar - won't be working by the time the event comes, but may still be of interest to the HT crowd.

Edit: or is this more of a swap meet where we bring things we're willing to part with?

The main speaker listening area will mostly use samples of DIY speaker kits from CSS. Depending on what else is brought along we will swap in other products. I'm interested in any DIY projects out there and may be able to offer suggestions or support.

Given the level of interest we may need to do this again sooner than anticipated and perhaps at a larger venue.

Save Shipping by attending Fraser Valley Vintage Audio Fair

Since we have a limited number of APR10s left and some Q10 Baltic birch cabinets we are going to clear some of this out on a first come basis.

We have 1 assembled unfinished 18" cube and 2 flat packs for the same enclosure. These have all the holes cut and include bracing. Order a Quartet10 kit and you can have the cabinet free when you come to the event.

If you are interested please contact us by email.

We also have a 14" cube flat pack cut for an SDX10 and a BASH300. This also is free if you come to the event and order the driver/amp combo.

Little bird made mention that Dr. David E. Hyre may show up.

Those that do not know him I will say he is one smart man with a little back ground in XBL^2 :)

Hope he can make it to the meet
