PA System needed
« on: May 11, 2004, 10:55:29 am »

Y'all,

The 'dance' team has secured a DJ for Saturday night.  We've got the hall reserved.  We've got a zillion people coming to the Porc Fest.  Only one problem, we don't have a PA system yet!

DJ Entropy will be spinning and he's forwarded me a 'wish list'.  We need *something* but if we could have anything, this is what he wants:

   500-1000 watt amp
   crossover (this seperates the sound and sends it to the proper speakers)
   12-15 inch bass cabinet (if you want people dancing, you need bass  :) )
   4 midrange/tweeter cabs (1 for each corner of the floor)
   1 self-powered JBL for a monitor

If anyone has any PA equipment, knows anyone with PA equipment, or has any great ideas as to how to obtain this stuff, please email me.  We have *one* good lead so far, but we're hoping to find more appropriate equipment for less money (donated would be ideal).  Also, I'd add to that list a mic, mic stand, and mini-mixer only because we'll presumably use the same PA for all of the presenters on Saturday.  If we can't find that gear, I can bring mine.  We'll need the PA beginning Saturday morning and ending Sunday at noon.  

Email your ideas to varrin@freestateproject.org.

Thanks a million!

Seems we've got this pretty much taken care of.  We got a 1400 watt system with some serious kick.  In return, we are supplying Ken (the guy with the PA) with a parking spot for his van.  Hats off to Ken!

Thanks to all of you for showing so much appreciation.  I'm really glad that I'm able to help.   A real campsite would be nice if available but all I really need is just a good place to park my van. I'll probably just sleep in that.  Might try to hit somebody up for a shower or two though.  I'm pretty low maintenance.
Sounds like a fun weekend. Does anyone know if Rogers allows dogs. I seem to have a 4 year old shepard permanently attached to me.

Best to everyone
Ken

Hey Ken,

The FSP has two campsites reserved for the event.  A place for the folks to gather.  Don't mean to speak for the leadership, but since I am on the planning committee. :D  Know that the spot is reserved from Thursday, so if you would like to come by then, get to know some of the folks, please do!  Thinking you could just put your van in the corner of the site!  Hoping you are friendly, because there is likely to be many folks in the area! ;D

This will afford you the use of the shower, etc.  No hurry, but sometime drop me a note and will give you the specifics so you can get in as an official camper! ;D

Oh sure, offer him a bed.  I didn't get a bed offer!

 :P

(hopefully we'll find some cute couple there to "share" a night with)

I'm convinced that everyone in the FSP is as slightly crazy as I am, and that's a damn good thing.  :)

I figured if you were bringing your better half, ya might not be exactly interested... But hey, if you want it, I'll let you and Ken fight it out... Or maybe all three of you could share?!?!?  ;D

NNoooooww hold on there pilgrims!

I'd have to draw the line at pictures.  Maybe back to the van is a better bet.

Probably Dave started thinking about pictures when I told him I was planning on bringing my dog. But I do value her innocence. After all, she's only 4 years old.  LOL

Seriously if Entropy needs the bed it's no problem.  

Thanks , Ken
