Hi Everyone;

As some of you may know Axiom is celebrating our 30th anniversary this year (somehow it just does not feel that long). As part of this celebration there has been some talk of having a get-together in September in Dwight. We have landed on Saturday, September 11th as the official day for the get-together at the factory in Dwight. We are thinking that during the day we can do some factory tours, have some blind listen test sessions, and some audio workshops with Alan, Andrew, and myself. The evening will be reserved for party time. Since we are in a resort area there are lots of lodges in the neighbourhood and we will work out some special deals for everyone and post an update with the details soon.

We would love to have as many of you as possible join us for the celebration. Getting to know so many of you over the last 10 years on the forums has made you feel like an integral part of the Axiom family and we would be honored to have you attend.

Woo hoo!

I have been lucky enough to have been in on the group PM that got the ball rolling. Kudos to MarkSJohnson for helping spur this along, and to pmbuko for coordinating our hopes to Axiom HQ. And, of course, many thanks to Ian and the gang at Axiom for their enthusiasm and plans for the homecoming.

Peter (pmbuko) and I have booked flights into Buffalo for 9/9 thru 9/12. We plan to rent a car together and head up to Dwight by way of Toronto. I think that Mark plans to drive over from NH.

I am really stoked about this. I really enjoyed the other business homecoming that I went to, the BMW Z3 owners' one at the plant in SC. It was a blast meeting people and touring the factory. This one should be even sweeter because of the friendships I have made with all of you on the boards.

Who else is in? Let's do this thang!!!

I'll be a definite maybe. I'll have to sort through all the details to see if it will work for me, work wise.

Sounds good to me, would be really good to meet everyone, perhaps we can even get some recluses up from Florida and Ohio \:\)

Afterthought....

Ian, will Axiom be unveiling any changes to their speakers to celebrate 30 years of success?

Perhaps a modded VP150 with a 6.5" driver or two? Call it the VP160. I'd love the VP180 but it's just too big. Also completely aluminized cones and magnetic grills across all models.

and yes, thirty years does go by really fast.

Wayne, I hope you do attend.

I am very much looking forward to seeing old and new friends at this gathering.

I'm just a little slower making arrangements than JP and Peter. \:\)

I'll have to see if I can make this happen. It would be great to finally see if the anechoic chamber is creepy enough to hold my wedding ceremony in.

Charles, the anechoic chamber is certainly worth the effort, very strange to say the least.

Dang, that falls on one of my afternoon shift weeks. Meh, sleep is highly over-rated anyway.

I won't be able to make it up until late afternoon, but it will still be a lot of fun to meet the various people I have gotten to know on this board.
