    9501 hanging from the ceiling,just need to get it calibrated over the next few days (when I'm around).
    I have a couple of dates in mind April 16th/17th or April 23rd/24th.
    So if those who have shown interest in our little gathering please give me some feedback, I will only be able to do it as a one day thing so aim to go with the majority,one day only sat or sun?
    Let me know.

    James is just outside Norwich. Considerably easier to get to than Henry, for those who don't know the area!

    Cheers Rob.

    Gordon you are most welcome,it would be great to see you, this isn't going to be anything on a grand scale such as your events,its probably more of a get together.
    I am off to Godfather's for yet more pj tweaks and special upgrades and Gather I have just missed the opportunity to meet Elliot.
    I have managed to grab a couple of evenings to get the beast ship shape,think I'm nearly there bar the tweaking.
    Pal and Ntsc dvd blocks are done, as is Dvhs and have just started the Hi-def muse block.
    I had better start shaking the dust off the Dunlavy's, poor things have not been on for a couple of weeks.
    I am actually around 25 miles from Holt, I'm just on the outskirts of Norwich as Rob pointed out.
    I hope those viewing this thread and pondering to come along or not don't think its just for crt guy's,this is all about this great passion of ours 'home cinema' rather than anyone telling each other what we should be using.
    Its simply a chance to view a good 9" (anyone want to see 8" as well?) strutting its stuff as well as she should be.
    As far as I'm aware other than Godons gathering on a super big scale, a chance to view this kind of kit is seldom comes along,and its about time us Av veterans put a little effort back.

    The later weekend is better for me, not least because I plan to spend that week locally in the holiday home from Hell in Sheringham. The earlier week I'm bogged down on the farm, and with livestock I can't really be that far out of bounds for any length of time.

    Guess what just happened to me? there I was sitting drinking a cuppa,with the sunday sport in my other hand,and my phone goes, its Rob he's in the area and just wondered if I was in and could call round for a cuppa, (yeah,yeah we believe him).
    So he has just been round for a preview ;) Rob when I closed the curtains last night I knew I could see a pair of beady eyes peering out from behind the bushes...it was you wasn't it :D
    No seriously it was nice of you to drop in and catch a glimpse of things, its looking like the later date may be the one to go with, awkward for a few of you but gives you a little more time to arrange thing's, Baggy's even going to try and swap working weekends (good man).

    I should be free the second weekend as well. Looking forward to seeing the Marquee and hearing the Dunlavys.

    My 808s is looking even better now, big thanks for visiting yet again and working till 2am on Friday night!

    Godfather, as ever you are most welcome, as the Americans would say "thats one helluva tricked out puppy you now have there" or something like that,somebody else just sneaked over for a preview tonight, maybe there's a whole bunch of them hiding out there in the bushes :D

    You know how i like to tease you with new Hi Def Delights and i just can't keep away from the generous helpings of 1080pie liquid coupled with double cream and colour filtered coffee (or Kwarfy as its affectionately known by us). :smashin:

    Seriously though, after seeing dvd and 2 HiDef Formats i drove home very satifised knowing that soon i will have this in my own home to enjoy and share with many others..Fantastic (Again) mate..

    Mind you i have been present at many installations with you featuring all sorts of CRTs (Cine 7s,8s,9s, 1209, 1609, 808s, the list is endless) and they have all been great performers..so last night was really no surprise..

    Really looking forward to the event now, i now know what it tastes like and i am still hungry...

    So glad you enjoyed it mate, better stock up on double cream ready for your return,
    do you think the 9501 stacked pair is just a little OTT?

    BTW, just in case anyone thought I was going to do sat and sun, I only planned for a one day showing, so having narrowed things down to the later weekend I'm collecting votes for the sat or the sun, let me know if you could, thanks.

    I'm indifferent, though having said that Saturday would avoid with a clash with the F1 race from Imola... Unless it's being shown on the Marquee. :)

    Could you put myself and Paul Lawrence down provisionally for the Saturday ?

    Could you also give us an idea of location, nearby airports, railway stations etc.

    Any ideas on best way to travel from Glasgow as we would rather avoid a 7 hour drive if possible ?

    Is there a schedule of event(s) available ?

    Hi there Alan and paul, paul long time no see, would be great to see you again, Alan were you the chap who popped round pauls whilst I was Installing? be good to see you too.
    Norwich Airport is 5 miles away, around 20 mins.
    Basically its just a huble little occasion at my place (small),I've not yet totally made up my mind an order of things so to speak.
    The main thing was to show off a 9" pj thats looking as good as it should,stripped down,re-built three new tubes etc.
    If anyone whats to see a good 8" pj I will set that up for them as well, if interest is shown?
    As said my place is small, lounge just 16x12 but for anyone interested in looking at a top 9 incher, (and/or 8") playing DVD,DVHS and even the old Japanese laserdisc hi-def muse format,then come along by all means.
    This is not a grand event as per gordon's previous events but simply a get together by any and all interested in such things,just a laid back day, pizza's beer's etc and no doubt a whole lotta talking,viewing and listning.

    James,

    You have a good memory! Yes it was myself that visited during Pauls Projector installation. I have had a look at flights but there is nothing suitable so it looks like we might have to drive or check out trains!

    regards

    Alan I can vaguely remember passing your video calibration disc tests, also If my memory serves me well you had a NEC 6pg, what are you using these days?
    Glenn, its looking like Saturday is going to be 'the' day so I hope you can all still make it, I look forward to meeting you all.
    ps its about time paul upgraded that 808, don't be concerned Paul I will talk Carol round ;)

    I am away on crt work (what else?) for at least a couple of day's so would those wishing/hoping to attend on Saturday let me know via 'speedbird' as he has offered to keep me informed
    I was thinking of kicking off around 12.00, which should help with those driving to far away Norwich.
    Kevin wish you could be here, maybe next time eh?
    Anyway as said please let 'speedbird know, many thanks.
    Directions to follow soon.
