1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

The Wam/Kegworth HIFI show 2020

    Thanks Tony for the change.

    Sunbeamgls: Ivor and Gilad came to the early Scalford shows but seeing their names gave Peter the 'in' to go see them and invite their engineers to Scalford. Peter tells me they got on well.

    The hotel is big and there should not be any problems with numbers but as always arrive early. You may have to park on the road but it is a small street and many did last year.

    We can make minor changes to the web page but I think we can forgive Peter as he is on morphine, recovering. As you all know if you get a chance to have an op earlier than planned you take it even if it wipes you out before a big show. So he may not be dashing up and down the stairs at Kegworth but I suspect some medicinal whisky will help. :)

    Hopefully see you all there.

    Yes thanks Tony although "Wigwam" was consigned to the archives about 3 years ago and "The Wam" was born :)

    I’ve changed it for you, though the website is still called HiFiWigwam.com as is the logo. I’ve no idea which is right!

    Right guys are we now set?

    The Show is going ahead and there is no way Peter would let it slide.

    Tickets are for sale on the door, so we can't be sold out.

    There is a lot of parking space and overspill on the local streets. No restrictions on Sunday.

    We have a large number of systems/rooms taken (50) and all different and matched.

    Web page set up.

    Basically full steam ahead for the Show. See you there.

    Galloway. No airports here. Not even many roads, to be honest. Quite a lot of sheep.

    I'll echo some comments;
    • the hotel accessibility, MUCH wider corridors and a consistent layout (e.g. I exhibited in syndicate 23 at Scalford one year and I'm pretty sure most visitors never found us!)
    • the lift covers all 3 floors (given the number of entries the 2nd floor WILL be needed this year) so very accessible, free entry for those holding a disabled parking badge
    • start at the farthest reaches of the hotel and work back
    • if you want/need to stay over consider the Best Western "Yew Tree Lodge" about 150m away
    and yes the Linn engineers went to Scalford, really joined in and were great ambassadors for their brand

    excited? oh yes

    Okay all on here the rooms for this year at the show have now been allocated . As I promised I would give details of what room I was in it is 217 . Anyone who wants to drop in and get some of their own music played then provided it is on CD or Flash drive or something in my Library then please call in and have a chat and a listen . Please let me know who you are , but do not be upset if twenty minutes later I forget , this is not you but everybody these days and not at all intentional .
