As another guy named Al once said rather infamously, "I am in control here."

JP has stepped aside as lead organizer for this meet because he has other things going on in his life and he may not be able to attend, although I am trying to control that situation too. :wink: Anyway, we are moving forward in any case, and I wanted to post up some details. I have secured a great room at the Doubletree Hotel in Burlingame, which is the same place we had for the last Bay Area meet near the SF airport.

Date/Time: Saturday February 27th from 9:30am to 6pm

Location: DoubleTree Hotel, 835 Airport Blvd., Burlingame, California, United States 94010-9949

San Francisco Hotels - Hotels near San Francisco Airport - Doubletree San Francisco Airport

We have a different room but it is very similar in size to the larger meet room from August. It also opens onto a courtyard that we can use as a talking area so as to minimize the chatter while people are trying to listen to gear. Here is the floor plan and we have the Sequoia and Redwood rooms:

Please post whether you want some table space and what gear you are planning to bring if you have not already done so. We will post this information and a gear list in the first and second posts of the thread for easy reference. Make sure you ping your Bay Area pals who were at the last meet or other meets or have always said they wanted to go to a meet. Depending on the number of attendees, be prepared to pony up $10-20 to cover the room expense. It isn't mandatory, but I'm not planning on footing $800 for myself. :eek:

See you all next month!

just as an FYI I accepted a job in PA that starts February 1st so this puts my attendance in jeopardy. I am going to try to attend but need to see how crazy things are when I get to the job.

Relocating is a massive time suck

I'm thinking you can get to New York pretty easily from most parts of Pennsyltucky and a weekend exploring The Blind Tiger, Spuyten Duyvil and the Ginger Man might be in order. What do you reckon, Dinny? :)

I think I'm in NYC 2/19 - 2/21.

I reckon we've got a Mini-Meet coming up, listening to the beers of the world.

Justin/HeadAmp and Craig/Eddie Current will be attending the meet, and others are possible as well.

Here is the layout for the room, which has been shifted back to the same large room we used at the last meet:

layout2.jpg

As you can see, there were 17 tables, but I think we can squeeze in at least 1 more given that I do not believe we will be dividing the rooms. If we run out of room then we will have to decide whether to get more $pace or just share these tables as economically as possible.

Just heading out the door. Will pick up Gene and Matt at SFO. See you all soon.

Sorry you won't be there John. It won't be the same without you. That means that there will be more Pliny for the rest of us. ;)

Drive safely Ken, and no off-roading on the way!

Michael and JP, you will be missed. In fact, I am going to have to drink a lot to forget the pain. :dan:

If all goes well over the next night or two I might have something that'll ease a great deal of pain. Or cause significant pain that you won't have it on hand for the meet. :)

Thanks, Al. I appreciate the sacrifice. I might have to drink a bit myself to forget the pain of you forgetting the pain.

Off-topic, what does a guy have to do to graduate from n00b status to actually being able to see the for-sale forums?

Looks like I may be dealing with a bunch of folks who have become ...

I may have to raise a Diet Coke, Microwave a Brownie, or take a trip to Fairfax Scoop to cope with all the pain-forgetting:)

Thanks, Voltron now has me covered on transport :) Oh yeah guzziguy mind bringing the jfet parts if they are still in your possession? Well it's probably too late, and I'm not even sure you still have them or what the jfet situation is... so busy.

From the other place, here are the details just for convenience. Asr: you should print out this new version of the table chart. Thanks.

Meet in 2 days!

Date/Time: Saturday February 27th from 9:30am to 6pm

Location: DoubleTree Hotel, 835 Airport Blvd., Burlingame, California, United States 94010-9949

San Francisco Hotels - Hotels near San Francisco Airport - Doubletree San Francisco Airport

I am attaching a room layout with my best shot at a distribution of the available space. Please stick to the table assignments and if there is some need to re-jigger we will assess that on Saturday. Asr will be in charge of opening the room hopefully around 9am and will hopefully have a copy or two of the layout.

If you plan to attend and do not see your name on the Attendee List below, please post in this thread and we will add you. If you are hoping for some room to show your gear on a table and do not see your name on the room layout and your stuff in the Gear List below, please post in this thread and we will try to fit you in. On the other hand, if you said you want table space and now cannot make the meet or do not intend to bring gear, or I just put you on the chart and you really do not want any table space, post that up too so we can plan to use the space for somebody else.
