Live in Chandler, work in Mesa. Not much for competition around here in years. But the market is huge for people interested in great sound. It just doesn't seem like the competitions are wanted. The last promoter we had in the area was surrounded by controversy and everything just fizzled after that.

Justin, I imagine you've already looked in to it but just in case you haven't, you might want to dig through the old AZ meet threads and see if any of those folks are still active in the hobby by shooting them an email or PM through the site. I know some of the guys I knew in that area aren't active on the forums but I'm told are still in the hobby in one way or another. Maybe reach out to Don (buzzman) and see what he's up to these days; he seemed to be the nucleus for the area for a period of time.
Hello Doug! I've briefly visited Mobile Solutions during a training and it is a super dangerous place, I could buy one of everything in that shop! I'm happy to see there is a lot of collaboration going on there and a lot of very high-level teaching too. Super classy stuff.
Hi vet883, send me a PM sometime if you'd like to swap stories or meet up for some ramen.
Erin, great idea and thank you for the links. I'll go see what Don is up to.
I recently moved to the Phoenix, AZ area and I don't see any competitions scheduled nearby. Are any of you over in this area? I miss having audio buddies nearby!
Hey Justin, I'm not sure about competitions, but COO of Morel America, Casey Thorson, lives in nearby Chandler, AZ now. He's a super chill guy and has a great little system in his VW Passat. He usually goes to any local IASCA/MECA shows and other meets to demo & promote product.

I believe Mikey Guthrie (Pro Audio S-10, Passat, S4 infamy) is in the area as well. I'm not sure how much he is on DIYMA anymore. He is somewhat active on FB again, if you're willing to wade into that cesspool.
