Hi Everyone,

It's time to start thinking about Axiom Audio's 35th Anniversary celebration. We are hoping that enough people are interested in making it that we can take over all of Lumina Resort for the weekend. We will have seminars, factory tours, and a big party on Saturday night. Lumina has a wonderful bar in the main lodge which will no doubt be a popular hangout for some (me for sure). Let’s see if we can top the fun that we all had at the 2010 celebration.

The festivities are planned for September 18th - 20th 2015. The cost is $350 for the weekend per person including the accommodation, dinner on Friday and Saturday, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, and all the taxes. For anyone who would like to extend their stay in either direction that can be done any time from September 15 to 24. The cost for an extended stay is the same-$175 per night per person with breakfast, dinner and taxes included.

The following is a link to Lumina Resorts website where you can take a boo at some pictures and check out the extra activities available at the resort. http://www.luminaresort.com/photo.html

Anyone that is interested in a round of golf let me know and we can arrange that.

Please let me know by PM, e-mail debbie@axiomaudio.com , or phone 1-877-862-9466 ext 216 if you would like to be a part of our celebration. I will need to know if you are going to be a single, a couple, or the whole family so we can book you the appropriate cabin or room. The larger multi-bedroom cottages are great for groups of friends too.

Be sure to post here as well if you are planning the trip. We would certainly love to have you.

Woo hoo! Official word!

Thanks so much in advance for putting this on. You guys are the best. I'll be confirming later on once I figure out how many of the medic8r clan will be coming.

Awesome!

Although this it is a long way out, my wife & I are tentatively planning to attend.

We may also have 2 more couples from Ontario; however, that has to be confirmed - we should know in a couple of weeks when they visit out here...

Debbie, I'm pretty sure your post count is going to skyrocket because of this. I want to thank you - and apologize in advance - for what is sure to be a very interesting organizing experience.

I really hope some of the newer Axiomos here at the site make the trip. Its always good to meet the people you've been making fun of interacting with on the forums.

Will Axiom need to order extra scribble pads or will the family bring their own?

Play nice!! I'm more of a lab rat than an event planner but this should prove to be a lot of fun.

Ian has been hounding me for years for a higher post count. I think that this is his way of forcing the issue although I am happily volunteering for this one.

We are looking forward to seeing you AND Mrs. Tuttle there.

This is something that I would like to come to... you're a couple of hours away, so why not.

Are you just trying to figure out numbers or do we do some booking.. it's over a year out.

I think I'd come with the family. so 3 people.

Matt,

I cannot speak specifically about Ian's plans, or if that happened last time, but I can relate that as one of the longest tenured members of both the board (2003) and Axiom ownership (1990, first visit to the plant in 1991), my beloved AX3's came for the ride, and alas, were traded in on M80's.

Mrs. Classic and I are in. Will have to work some details, but have 15 months to figure it out.

Since we're this far out, Lake Street Dive might be available... just a suggestion.

Pearson is the closest. But it's still a 2 hour drive up the 400/11 to get there.

Yes. 2+ hours from Toronto Pearson International Airport or about 4 from Buffalo. Even from Pearson it's far enough that a rental car may be the most economical option.

If people are interested we could try to organize some kind of shuttle or ride sharing.

Some people flew in to Buffalo last time around as it may be cheaper for Americans to fly that way...and you could spend a day or two in Niagara as a side trip if you wanted.

Excluding any waiting at the border, it's about 1 1/2 to 2 hr drive from Buffalo to Toronto. Toronto to Dwight/Huntsville would be a couple more hours...

hop over the boarder to Canada, and in Niagara on the Lake, there are over 180 different wineries in the region. And as that part is in a pocket with an escarpment around it, the micro climate allows for perfect grape growing.

So, let's get this straight, Sean; you're sorry for last time, but only enough to be "interested" this time? Who TF do you think WE are, your last three girlfriends? We're sick of being given the same "brush-off" lines.

If I were you, I'd ask for a deadline before I'd play that fast and loose with some of your unknowingly tenuous relationships around here.

Thanks for the back-up, Tom. I hope he knows he's only the first to be dogged and hounded about this. Charles, be forewarned. And, Ken, we don't care if it's sextuplets this time, do you understand? There are more of you, so watch out.

Well, I'm going if for little more than morbid curiosity of who this Bob fellow is and to find out if he is so much fun in real life as he is online.

Matt,

Since you are the only person who will openly admit to seeking Bob out (on purpose), PLEASE do the rest of us a great service and pack LOTS of duct tape. Everyone will appreciate having Bob wrapped up; we can just fasten him to one of the roof supports on Ian's deck.

Well, OK, everyone will appreciate it except Bob.

Hmmm, if Murph packs in more of that Canadian moonshine hooch and Chess drinks enough to go brain dead again, it might even be fun to suspend Bob from the ceiling and tell Chess he's a pinata.

Boy, this could be a GREAT event!!!

Love ya Bob!!! grin

Ray is correct; it is either duct tape or jail.

I could be talking about the weather or squash soup, and, if I'm within earshot of any children, I could be up on statutory charges.

There are going to be one of either 2 choices:
I flirt with an ugly trial and jail time, or...
make sure your kids are wearing their Beats for the entire weekend. Choice is yours. I'm flexible.

Choices officially rescinded. I just had a visual of ALL of your kids donning headphones for the whole weekend. Sooo "Children of the Damned." I'm goin' with that one. And they all have to be the same color and style, the headphones, not your kids.

Well, I'm going if for little more than morbid curiosity of who this Bob fellow is and to find out if he is so much fun in real life as he is online.


Matt,

Since you are the only person who will openly admit to seeking Bob out (on purpose), PLEASE do the rest of us a great service and pack LOTS of duct tape. Everyone will appreciate having Bob wrapped up; we can just fasten him to one of the roof supports on Ian's deck.

Well, OK, everyone will appreciate it except Bob.

Hmmm, if Murph packs in more of that Canadian moonshine hooch and Chess drinks enough to go brain dead again, it might even be fun to suspend Bob from the ceiling and tell Chess he's a pinata.

Boy, this could be a GREAT event!!!

Love ya Bob!!! grin


See, Matt, there it is! Do you know how many people have "privately booked" time with me in Dwight already?!
My app runneth over, so hurry and get on the sign-up sheet as quickly as you can. (There it is, taped to Ray's back, right above the "Kick Me" sign.)

Love ya, Ray!!

(Emoticons will soon begin taking hostages. You mark my words)

Chess brain dead? I don't remember ANYTHING after that one cup of it. Chess informed me the following day that he "helped" me out of my van. At least he was somewhat coherent smile.

My buddy Bob was the only one to drive to the resort I was at to introduce himself and offer assistance installing the ramp necessary to get into the cottage I rented. I'll never forget that.

Just don't get too close, Matt. I'll get jealous.

This sounds interesting - especially with golf (Bigwin?). I've just checked my calendar and I seem to be free. Now I just need to see if I will be nearby - it is a long flight to YYZ.

It took me a few minutes to recall why Murph had his hands down my pocket.

But it was such a nice phone Murph....

Here is an update to our 35th anniversary party preparations.

There have been some questions regarding travel from the airport to the lodge. There are a few options. There is and airport shuttle that goes from Pearson Airport to Huntsville every day. It leaves the airport at 2:00pm and arrives in Huntsville at 4:30pm. The cost for this option is approximately $91.00 (one way) and I will make sure that you have a ride from Huntsville should you choose this option. Probably the better option would be to rent a car which will be less money and you have a car. It would be very inexpensive if a few people got together on the rental. There will also be some coming from Toronto anyway so you may be able to hitch a ride. Anyone willing to offer a ride you can post that here. Boltron has already put the offer out depending on timing and I’m quite sure that there will be some takers on that offer. Thank you Boltron!

When Do We Have To Book?
The best plan is to book now or as early as possible. We suspect it will sell out fairly quickly especially once we announce it formally in the newsletter. We have started here on the boards to give everyone here first dibs; and judging by the posts PMs and emails that I have been receiving it’s going to be a full house. We would require a $70.00 (20%) deposit per person (less for children according to the rates) to hold a room for you and that will be deducted from your room bill at the end of your stay. For those staying longer or coming early (or both) the deposit will be the same. If you are unsure of the number in your party you can book what you know now and let us know the tentative final number later.

Will There Be Factory Tours and Seminars?
Absolutely! Ian and Andrew will be organizing seminars and discussions which always prove to be very interesting and informative and I will be conducting factory tours for anyone interested in seeing where Axiom products are manufactured.

A couple more actually, as I was in the listening room with someone - can't remember whom - and missed the shot.

Maybe we can build the photo shoot into the schedule for the next meeting - hint, hint, Debbie... LOL

Debbie - a suggestion.

Remembering the 30 anniversary preparations and communications, I'm pretty sure the young lady who was in charge of it all (I don't remember who she was), was feeling like she was herding cats. Plus, this thread is likely to grow to be large and unwieldy over the next bunch of months and your updates may get lost as you add them as the thread grows to 26.984 replies. :-)

May I suggest that you organize things by either
1) starting a new thread that only YOU can post to so that the first post in the thread provides all of the pertinent information. At the top, put in a line (large type, bold) the date that the information was last updated If you add information, you can add it to that single place PLUS everyone will know where to look for the up-to date info.

>> OR <<
2) Take over the first post in THIS thread and use that pfirst post as the up-to-date info section like described above.

This thread (the one we are in now) can then be used for posts by everyone.

If you let it run like it is, it will quickly become ineffective.

I would do the same to protect you again in 2015!

I can't speak for Andy, but I have to have mine cut pretty often, lest it become a mane that tickles my shoulders.

Is that an OK complaint? grin

Edit: You guys all got the height, so....

Edit again: Maybe all of our hair grew to the same length, but my diminutive height means I haven't outgrown it?

The Murphshine delivery is confirmed!! Thank you for your order.

It only took a few pics of the area to convince Sharon we need to spend some time there.

Debbie,
I noticed that "Expedited Delivery" is an option on the reservation page. If I pay the extra 15 dollars does it mean the party will be moved to this fall instead of 2015?
