As many of you know, Tom Munch has been working to find a suitable venue in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado for a Fall users conference.
I am pleased to inform you that we have found such a place.
It is an absolutely beautiful area that is chock full of L1 players and other musicians (largely because of Tom).
We've identified a wonderful establishment that has a stage and room for us to conference.
For accomodations, there are rooms at the Cuchara Inn (where we'll hold the conference) and cabins at a dude ranch just up the road that are available to us at a fair price.
As usual, we'll have a blend of "Music / Tech Talk / Community". Some of the engineers here at Bose including Cliff, Bill, MikeZ and Chris have already started scheming on what they'd like to contribute. Tom plans to do a talk on guitar and voice tone. We're very receptive to other ideas for presentations from the community.
There's a Celtic music festival happening in the next town just before our conference, where our own Big Sur alumnus David Enke is playing a central role. Here's a link for more info on the festival. Some of those folks want to spill over into our conference (a good thing). Also, David's planning to have the festival be an all-L1 affair.
You should plan to be in Cuchara on Sunday afternoon. (Of course some of you may want to take advantage of the trip to spend extra days.) We'll have music on Sunday evening. Then, we'll conference on Monday day and evening (more music) and we're out on Tuesday. Loved ones are welcome to join us.
Tom will be posting more pictures to give you a sense of the place.
Many more details will be posted here over the coming days including how you can make your reservations.
In addition, our wonderful community member ST has offered to put the plans for the conference as they unfold (like a flower blooming) onto the wiki.
We will limit the number of attendees so that we can focus, and we do expect to sell out.
We'll do everything possible to make it easy on you to attend. We very much hope you make the time to join us.
With best regards,
Tom and Ken
