QAC March 2019 Meeting

Recommended Posts

The next GTG will be at Andrew H’s (QAC Secretary) on Saturday 23rd March at Leichhardt (Ipswich). This meeting will be a small get together (SGT) I have seating upstairs for around 10. The rest can make noise downstairs under the carport (where the BBQ will be hosted). As such, attendance is restricted to 20 members. First in, best dressed. Those who turn up on the day without a prior acknowledged RSVP will kindly be shown the door!


There will be a table for those who wish to sell personal audio gear on the day.

There will be another table for those who wish to give away audio stuff that is gathering dust at their homes (keep the wife happy).

I will have half a crate of LPs to give away, mainly classical, that don’t fit in my collection. I also have various speaker drivers to give away.
