Sadly the venue now wishes to charge...

Looking for alternative options at the moment.
A real audiophile will eventually end up with the ARC Ref stuff..

Yes, the False Bay Rugby Club is no longer free.  For a minimum fee of R500 we can go there on an available Sunday, so it might be the WBJS (still free) or some other venues where the management or committee in charge need massaging in order to let the club use the facility

The venue was deemed "unsuitable".  ;D
Still quite happy to host if you guys cant find anything else.

Biggest problem is carting cases of LPs up the rather steep staircase to the 1st floor...

Can't you fit a wheelchair ramp for the management committee Frikkie?....and perhaps a lift.....without these the venue is indeed "unfit"

One meeting without the above in place will mean that we will have to peruse circuit diagrams for the "Chris Clarke Memorial Amp":)

Going to check out a Coffee Shop in Bree Street tomorrow that is keen to host a vinyl faire... Holding thumbs that vinyl faire CT can go from half-cocked to fully-cocked with a regular schedule and venue.

Sounds like fun I'll try and be there :) .

Odd question : Was Depeche Mode banned in South Africa ? I've searched Mabu Vinyl on several occasions and I haven't come across any of their vinyls (I've come across a lot of other stuff though, like Dire Straits, Supertramp, OMD, Phil Collins/Genesis, Kate Bush, Elton John, Francois Harde, Sting, The Police, Men at Work, Paul Simon, U2, etc.). Now that I think of it I haven't seen any Pink Floyd either or The Who (I imported a few of their albums off eBay).

Didn't you mean to write Francois Hardon?

Apologies but all the spell checkers seem to be switched-off recently. And it's fookin' cold here so I have to play with myself.
