Bay Area TPers - April 30 1PM - Save the Date!
« on: April 19, 2011, 10:57:13 PM »
Hi folks,

We are having a special guest coming to the Bay Area - Xavier Cortes - our favorite Mexico City TP member.  We are planning to have a get together at Chez Toy in Orinda on April 30 at 1PM to meet Xavier and to talk and listen. Because of his complex schedule, we won't know for sure until next Monday whether we will be able to have the gathering. Please save the date and time. As usual we will have a pot luck lunch at the gathering.  We can listen to the newest TP018 and the vinyl versions of Respighi and Copland for comparison.  Please email me at [email protected] if you can make it. I will post again and send out PM's to those who respond.  Hope to see a bunch of you on the 30th. PS In addition to his analogue system, Xavier is building a digital system very similar to mine - a Pacific Microsonics Model Two ADAC, driven by Pyramix software (Version 7) using a Mykerinos card - by Merging Technologies. 

Take care, Larry

Definitely looking forward to it Larry.
Hopefully, Xavier's schedule will work out for a get together. I haven't seen him since way back in 2008 at VSAC.
I'll email you to confirm.

Hi guys.

I still need a few more hours! I beg for your patience. I will have a definitive answer by noon tomorrow (PT).

Thanks!

I won't be able to make it. Work will keep me anchored in Mexico City. Thanks a lot Larry for the offer to put this together. I really was excited.

Maybe for my 20th year reunion!

Yeah, if you're not going to make it to your reunion @Stanford, just tell me where it's gonna happen. I can register and put on your name tag, exchange some "war" stories with your classmates and inhale some punch! If there's anyone you hated, I'll be sure and camp out at their table.
