So.. I recently moved to Sarnia from the GTA and know not a soul lol. Just wondering if there are any audio clubs in the area? Get together's? I'm a bit of newbie but do have some nice gear, not crazy hi-end but would very much like to share the hobby with those in the area to some extent.

I'm also open to paying someone with some expertise for wiring and advice if that can work for somebody in the area?

Cheers :D

There is the GTAA, you can contact them at their website: http://www.gtaaudio.com/wordpress/
There is another group as well, which was formerly the I&I group in Toronto (search for a thread regarding that), though they do not have a website and their members do not use CAM very often. As well, it may be closed to new members, though I am not sure about that...

I'd be interested in setting something casual up again with the community, for sure, though the one difficult thing is that groups often tend to get quite large, and it becomes more and more difficult to hold together...
People from other cities around Canada often speak a bit harshly about how Torontonians are this or that (insert derogatory comment as you wish), but I, for one, have found that they are generally very welcoming and social (I am a refugee westerner ;) )
Anyway, good luck with the investigation.

edit - doh! I thought the OP moved from Sarnia to the GTA :)

FYI - to the person in Sarnia:
in 2011 there was a thread on CAM titled: "New to Toronto".
A member named "mg bridges" posted on that thread that his brother in law lives in Sarnia and joined a club in Michigan. Maybe that would help you.
