WAM Show Postponed

Unread post by savvypaul »

The WAM show planned for 1-3 October has been postponed until next Spring.

The WAM also appears to have a new admin.

Best wishes to them. They have issued a statement that can be found at the top of their 2 channel room.

Thanks, CN, I hadn't realised that. Here's the full statement:

Dear Fellow Wammers,

My name is Roo, I am the son of the owner of HiFi Wigwam (Rachel). The purpose of this post is to inform all forum members of some important changes.

Effective immediately, Peter (the previous admin) no longer has any involvement in the forum. There are aspects of the changes you may consider positive, but one you most likely will not. Some members may be aware of my mother and Peter’s relations and other business. Unfortunately, everything has been left in somewhat of a mess, and my mother is also currently in hospital.

First and foremost, I do not propose to make any major changes to the forum or to promise things that are impossible or that go against the wishes of the majority of forum members. I am now aware of some of the problems with the forum and of issues members have raised. My main work is as a developer, so the site itself will be my first focus, with the aim of resolving the problems.

The bad news is that although it was my mother’s strong wish for the 2021 show to go ahead, with a heavy heart I have to announce that we have no option but to postpone it until the spring. We are aware some members would have anyway preferred this, though we also know it will be a disappointment to many. Regrettably, most of the arrangements appear not to have been completed, to the extent that the hotel cannot actually offer the required space, as they are carrying out some works. We initially propose making it a two-day event again (i.e., setup on Saturday, ticketed visitors on Sunday as it used to be), which seems to be most people’s preference. We also suggest running the show on the 26th and 27th March, but we would be happy to be flexible to suit all the exhibitors. Under any circumstances, we will refund any exhibitor payments made by any member who does not wish to continue participating.

We appreciate and are grateful for the support of the forum members and we understand that the forum and its future depends on you, more than on us. The forum will return to being the best of its type, and to being run primarily as a forum for its members.

With our thanks, Rachel and Roo.

He would have had a laugh at the opening page which you can see.

Delayed Klimax? That could be a big seller...and attract more women to the hobby.

Most of the forum is now accessable now without logging in.

The new ownership has seen the return of Duvet as an adminstrater. He and a number of others departed at the time of the amnesty.

The Wam has been a better place without him there, I kinda thought Rabski had taken a leading role and has been excellent.

I've chipped in with a couple of suggestions over on the Wam.

https://www.hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/ ... /#comments

Sometimes in life there's a lot to be said for being ambitious / imaginative / challenging things / changing things up / reaching for the stars / mobilising a movement.

A good example of that is the recent NVA demo army recruitment drive.

Maybe the world of hi-fi in 2021 is like rock music in 1976? Stale and staid. Ripe for something different to come along and take -off.
