I hope this is an appropriate location for this post.

I live in Nanaimo, BC and am looking for fellow audio enthusiasts from the Qualicum to Ladysmith area. All my audio friends are in Vancouver... and the one person I met here moved away.

I'm open to contacts from Victoria as well, but it's a bit of a ways to go to hang out and listen to music... although I probably would.

So if any are out there that are open to sharing their hobby with another enthusiast, please let me know...

I just googled Nanaimo hifi club/enthusiasts and this came up. I have a decent system but would very much like to share ideas with others in the area as well as maybe arrange a few listening sessions if possible.

Did anything ever come of this, OP?

Thanks,

Warren

I started a Facebook page for music and stereo enthusiast on Vancouver Island.

This group is for Vancouver Island... and surrounding islands that have a passion for music, and music systems. Some interests of the group: Music, Audio systems, Tweaking, Room Tuning, DIY, listening sessions, Meet-ups... etc.

"Vancouver Island Audio Club"

Nanaimo BC, the home of downhill biking legend Stevie Smith (RIP). I rode with Stevie and my son on the rainforest trails of Mt. Prevost back in 2015 just prior to his unfortunate accident in 2016.

Sorry, nothing to do with Audio, but your post brought back fond memories of Nanaimo and Vancouver Island. Great area with great people.

My original post was for me to meet people near by... but the club page is for all the Island audio enthusiasts to connect.
