Ok Boomboxery brothers and sisters, the 2018 3rd Annual International Boombox Meet is coming! This year it will be held at The Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada September 28th through September 30th. The main day being Saturday September 29th with a boombox meet/display inside one of the conference rooms there at Excalibur Hotel that we are renting.(Big thanks to Bobby aka RobTheeAssasin) for doing all of the footwork and research out there in Vegas for us!

A few of us West Coast members have agreed to split the cost of the conference room for the boombox meet on the 29th, but if we can get any other members to attend and possibly pitch in, it will reduce the cost for everyone. Any little bit would help, but we also understand that travel expenses can be costly and understand if folks can't chip in, but any little helps!

On Saturday September 29th from around 11:00PM to 5:00PM we will be able to display, blast and enjoy our boomboxes with no worry about the noise level. We will have electricity, tables, chairs and there will be plenty of food and drink there for everyone. I believe we are allowed to start setting up as early as 9:00AM that morning, but I will confirm this to be sure.

Anyone is welcome to bring a boombox or boomboxes, or to just come and hang out for the weekend. After all, its VEGAS! Family friendly as always.

If you are interested in joining the West Coast Boomboxery crew, and would also like to stay at Excalibur with us, follow the passkey link here https://book.passkey.com/go/GBOO0918 for a group rate on rooms at Excalibur. You can reserve rooms under "Attendee". It will show up as BOOMBOX BROTHERHOOD on the web page. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

We know its short notice, but we hope to see some of you guys and gals and your families out there if you can make it!

Bobby (RobTheeAssassin) has done a lot of work putting together a great deal on the room and facilities fees.  The banquet room will have plenty of tables for our boxes (I plan to bring 10-15), plenty of AC power, and plenty of food and drink.

 

Here's a video of the event 2 years ago, but that room was smaller and not as nice:

I wish SLO. My wife and kids dental bills are killing me here. Might have to sell a blaster or 2 just to cover those balances and not pull money out of savings.

Let me tell you that Boombox magazine is every man's dream for anybody who loves boomboxes and the lasonics it's just Paradise on paper.

Just a random thought I saw a big sticker of a J-1 super jumbo in the bumper of a car the other day and I thought damn that's f****** awesome

Even though I won't be at Vegas I plan on building a custom boombox to represent from the East.

Possibly coaching...They are already looking to have me be the "defacto" sixth grade coach.  And I'll never retire from announcing for the high school. :lol:
