    Not to worry, a winter meet may be a bit soon and if weather is bad it may not work. Hmmmm

    If the hotel by me has re-opened by then we can hold it there again. It's supposed to be 'closed for refurbishment' but last time I went past it just looked closed. I'll see if I can find out what's going on with it.

    The listeners (all one of them! ), appear to be seated a long distance away from the speakers. I wasn't there, so I cannot comment, but if was, I would prefer to sit somewhat closer.

    Excellent photos BTW.,
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    It was a big hall Barry but the listeners were about 12-20 feet away from the speakers. Trust me that was close enough. I stood at the back 50 feet away or so and it was still loud enough. 25 feet was about perfect for me.

    The perspective in the photos makes it look like we were sitting further away than we actually were.
