I'm in Mill Bay and would like to connect, always interested in how other people approach their gear and also what music is out there that I have not heard. I also appreciate the "tech" knowledge because I am non tech, I just enjoy listening.

Thanks
Alan

Hi All,

I was talking to a fellow CAM member and friend we were also wondering about anyone who was interested in just getting together to meet, get to know, and talk about our great hobby, perhaps a meeting at a Starbucks, being aware that everyone has different times that would work, maybe provide a series of time/dates so we can make one of the two dates, instead of all of us trying to meet at one time. Then after those first couple of meetings we would get a better idea of numbers, time availability and then narrow down a single day/date we could all meet. This idea depends on number of us and availability. Having said all this it also may be very well possible for all to meet the first time depending on numbers, time and a good date selection. What are thoughts of others? 8)

Great idea Paul, easier to meet at a convenient central locale and get to know one another a bit before we invade someone's house. Might have to do another up north a bit, maybe naniamo, to involve those friends to the north.

Hey I'm in Vic too and have looked out for folks interested in HiFi. I shied away from sponsoring a Meet up group but would definitely like to get together with the audiophile community, Jim

Lot's of Folks on our Island. Suggestion of 'Meetup' is that an App where we could make a Time, Day and Location? Paul

Van. Isl audiophiles is a great idea.

I'm up in Northern BC, and in Victoria for work periodically. Would be great to meet other audiophile-minded folks and listen to some music!

I'll keep an ear out!

cheers, Terry

Also in Victoria. I tried the FB thing. Wasn't for me. I'm now at a high level but love all things Audio. The thing that keeps me as a loner is the judgement/snobby of folks hunting and diy. Not just enjoying what folks have assembled big or small bought or built. I love the look of the latest greatest things but my ears and my hart are ancient!! Lol love dim sum love trying different gear. Love experiences of others and their stories that got them to their system...No judgement. Lol

Yup... he said he will set it up when he gets home. I just met him an hour ago here in Nanaimo at the record sale. Great guy...

Well that is nice of him but I'm retired and have more time then most. Meet up is good and I'll probably get in on it at some point but I'm also interested in non-formal independent coffee meets in town or James Bay. Thx
