    How many of us live in the Lancs, Cheshire, Merseyside/Wirral areas?

    I live in Southport, and I'm up for a bake off or two (or even three) over the next twelve months (a different venue each time).

    So, could you please respond if you are interested, and list your answers to the following questions:

    1) Preferred day(s) of the week

    2) Preferred timing (morning/lunch; lunch/afternoon; late afternoon/early evening or evening from 6pm)

    3) Preferred dates?

    4) Willing to host?

    5) Your location

    6) if you want, a mention of kit you have (if hosting) or could bring

    I'll start with:

    1) &2) any evening, Mon - Fri

    OR

    any weekend, late afternoon/early evening

    3) flexible, except not over Easter, please

    4) Happy to host one

    5) Southport

    6) Slim Devices Transporter, Jeff Rowland amps, not too much very movable to other venues though. Possibly dCS Verdi Encore to bring if it doesn't sell.

    I used to be up in Ainsdale every month - alas no more.

    Would have loved to have heard your kit.

    Shame.

    My other home is in Yorkshire, just over the border in Settle, so I'm a possible participant, though I'm only there about every third weekend.

    1) Preferred day(s) of the week: weekends

    2) Preferred timing (morning/lunch; lunch/afternoon; late afternoon/early evening or evening from 6pm) not Friday or Sunday evening

    3) Preferred dates? tba

    4) Willing to host? possible, subject to SWMBO

    5) Your location Settle, N Yorks

    6) if you want, a mention of kit you have (if hosting) or could bring Arcam Solo / MA RS5; B&W CDM1NT / Denon Receiver / Pioneer DVD in situ, speakers or Solo could be transported.

    You didn't specify a time, so I assume you and spongehead are flexible?

    So, assuming the first one is at my place, how about aSaturday or Sundayin the afternoon, starting 3pm? (Gives me a chance to play golf in the morning, then listen to music from, say, 3pm to 7pm?)

    Yomanze: would that work for you? you suggested lunch/afternoon but a 3pm start means I can avoid missing a round of golf with my mates? Sunday would be best for me, but I could do Saturday if people preferred.

    If all are happy, which date? I'm OK for Sunday 9th March or Sunday 16th, for instance.

    If I can get a lift over then certainly - maybe a few other bits too. Otherwise I'll be on the motorbike so speakers would be a no-go. But Southport is only half an hour from here so getting a lift shouldn't be a problem.

    That's just a tease.

    Definately up for something later in the year if you can organise it.

    That would be superb if the 16th works out. I'm about 2 miles off the Chorley M61 junction so it's a little out of the way but we can share costs so it could work out nicely.

    Would be environmentally friendly too

    16th March here in Southport, at 3pm, is a possibility if one or two more can come.

    My wife goes to the USA that weekend, so I'll have to do nibbles duty, however that also means we finish whenever we feel like it.

    I think confirmed/possible attendees are:

    me (Ron)

    Yomanze

    Alex

    Teedoubleyou



    Oldfogey - possible?



    Is four/five (including me) enough?

    Andy if you can't come to the first one does that mean spongehead will not come?



    AN - sure you can't come, even if it was nearer the end at say, 6pm or 7pm? If not then there is always next time (any dates to suggest?).





    If we want to go ahead on 16th March I'll PM you all with address details: bring whatever kit you feel like (or none, or cables). Perhaps do some general listening and one or two blind tests? Bring MUSIC as well, or you'll be stuck with my tastes!

    Hi all,

    I currently live in Wigan and if I had the pleasure of an invite I have an Audio Synthesis Desire Black Gate Power Amp, a meridain G08 cd player, a creek passive amp, and a pair of Wilson Benesch Arcs.



    If anyone would like to hear any kit I would obviously be pleased to bring it along.

    Thanks,

    Darren.
