Jason hosted an excellent meet! Wonderful venue for a meet / comp - plenty of space for vehicles, excellent space for hanging out in doors when needed (especially for meal times and for those not actively involved in the car audio activities), and an amazing smoker for the hundreds of pounds of amazing meats (trying to get all of my superlatives in for Mic).

Like many times with these kinds of meets - the weather app shows something so promising on Tuesday, by Thursday it is really iffy, then by Saturday it is pure yucky.......but it could have been worse - raining sideways and 40 degrees. The rain didn’t dampen the spirits or likely keep anyone from attending.

Very cool to have some first time attendees of a meet / comp - I know John and John come to mind - I believe there were a few others as well. And a couple cars competing that haven’t before - Nick and Al.

Thank you to Mike Flanagan for judging and providing extremely helpful feedback to all of the competitors. That is what makes comps so useful. I had missed Jeff’s truck at Finals, so I was glad to get a thorough demo on Saturday, and it was very enjoyable for me to have Jeff sit in and explain several parts of the decision points and thoughts on potential changes. The truck sounded phenomenal.

Thank you so much Jason and Mina - very impressed to see Meghan basting the ribs like a pro - awesome job there! And lastly apologies for the kissy lips at Bella.....just happens without conscious thought

I only got a handful of pics.

Very cool shelter the previous owner provided with the house ‘just in case’






Al’s beautiful truck - well done my friend!









The King!









John’s beautiful S4



Couldn’t quite get the Chevelle to have tunes.





Jeff’s Morels!!!!



Even a little tuning action after judging.



After awards



BBQ!!!





Of course.....view out my window this morning.....oh well - it was a terrific time despite the damp conditions.

Thank you to the Carter family for hosting. I can't wait to come back to the area during better weather.
New house is amazing.

Great meet overall. Was nice to have an option to get some meca points as well.

Special thanks to John Kiser for alot of tuning help. Having the right tools makes such a difference.

Now that I've had time to recover...

I hope everyone had a good time. Seemed like it.

We had expected some of my wife's military friends to come but they didn't show so there was a lot of food for everyone. Hope everyone enjoyed it.

If I was scatter-brained I'd say I'm sorry, but it's honestly pretty normal for me. This weekend especially. I felt like there were a thousand things to do but in the end I think I could've relaxed more.

I couldn't tell you guys how many miles I walked on the property or how many flights of stairs I got in. My legs are saying "Quite a few".

The rain that was supposed to be here Friday and gone Saturday kept hanging around. Ended up with drizzle off and on all day Saturday. Not enough to make you seek shelter, but just enough to keep things wet. The nice weather we thought we were going to have Saturday came on Sunday - after everyone was gone. That system moved slower than they thought it would.


There were several new competitors and the usual suspects from here that we all know. I know Thomas, Chris, Al, and Nick competed for their first time. I think it may have been Josh's first time as well.

Had a couple of guys that have never competed in SQ come to have a chance to learn and listen to cars so that was a good thing.

As much as I wanted to get the Chevelle together there was so much other stuff I felt I needed to do so we'd all have a clean space to hang out and BS. The picture Jason posted above of the car is how it looked when I threw it together for Virginia state finals in 2018. I hadn't touched it since right after finals when I pulled the front apart to work on gauges and relocation of the horns/mids. There's a lot of work left on the car to do properly and instead of slamming it together to get it playing, I want to do it right and be done.

Anyway...

Just wanted to thank everyone for coming. Wife and I had a good time with everyone and Belladog loved the attention everyone gave her (because she's not spoiled at all is is completely attention starved :laugh:).

Thanks again for hosting, hopefully you'll finish all that drywall and every car will be finished by the next time I come down

We got down to Jason's meet and were immediately struck by his awesome cars so those are going to be the first few pics:

Yep, plate reads 800 hp.


Jason's super clean 1967 Chevelle 4-door:


Newly acquired survivor Iroc Camaro:


Our table of goodies for everyone to pick up, touch, ask questions, etc, in Jason's wood shop area:

Josh and I want to officially thank Jason for putting this GTG in motion. Everyone that attended had a great time. Hospitality was great, food was superb, etc. Jason - you have an awesome property. Everyone, including myself, was blown away at how great everything was. Houses were great. Land is awesome. Pond is excellent. Gated. Beyond plenty of room for anything and everything. Be proud man.

Food was above and beyond what you should have done. Ribs, pulled pork, brisket, green beans, baked beans, all of it was top notch. Thank you very much for everything that you and your family provided. Josh and I will clear our schedules to make sure we are there for your next meet. Great job!

Cool property, awesome food and hospitality, three houses, lots of different cars and audio systems with like minded people and a big hollow tictac buried underground. What’s not to like?

It was a great first car audio gtg and it won’t be my last. Thanks again Jason!
