Yes you did.  We must resurrect those name tags and print them on the spot.  I am not too good at names where I don't see the people often

Lets make name tags an agenda item for the next committee meeting - which should be soon I think. I also think its my turn again and will be happy to host if it is

had a good laugh at the comments Kent/aka Andre made about offering sweets to the kids at WBJS, then I clicked he thought he was on pedoforums and not AV. Having a bunch of men only, meeting after hours in a Boys only school after hours might not be the ideal face of the Cape Town HiFi club! Way too many eccentric "lurkers". i suppose you capies can consider yourselves lucky, at least you CAN meet, here in GT, no-one goes out after dark, at least not without an escort, err I mean armed escort, no, actually mean armoured patrol! :sh1tstirrer:

Just a quick reminder that the Cape Town Hi-fi club is meeting at e-Piphany tonight at 19H45.

It is an ideal opportunity to socialize with fellow audiophiles whilst listening to some of the best equipment in Cape Town !

Please come !!

Nooo no, we are nice to everybody !!

That includes all black and silver disk spinners, old-and-new farts and all wannabee audiophiles

Just come to have some fun and enjoy the music.

Some serious eye (and ear) candy on show at E-Piphany tonight. Thank you again to our hosts Hein and Colin; more in the club's next newsletter.

Oh, and nice to have had a couple of visitors from Gauteng in the shape of Stuart and Heather (hope I got the names right).

Warming up our ears for the main event:

I had the fullest intention of attending this one - even if just to meet my old nemesis again... ;D
