After two years of being disappointed by the total lack of IASCA in California, I have decided to do something. I have signed up to be a promoter for IASCA events in California.
So far I have commitments from quite a few local shops as well as manufacturers to host shows during the next year. Apart from the shops Image Dynamics, Arc Audio, and Vertical Doors/Elite Creations have all shown interest in hosting shows.
The first show I am scheduling will be an SQi event at:
AUDIO SHOPPE - November 15th 2008
6760 Central Avenue Unit A
Riverside, Ca. 92504
(951) 787-0550 (951) 788-9379 (fax)
IASCA has changed their format so that finals will be during spring break. This gives competitiors three extra months to qualify this year. I am also setting up a judges training at Audio Shoppe. Most likely this will be in December or January.
There will definately be at least three shows BEFORE finals. This should give those of you with partially finished projects enough time to get them done.
IMPORTANT NOTE: IASCA is considering separate East and West coast Finals with CA$H prizes. I am fighting to get this done, but I need to increase west coast interest so I can push it through. Although we may not get a West Coast final this year, I have been told that there will be cash prizes this year at finals.
If IASCA does not get a west coast final going by next year, I will set up a west coast series that will culminate with point based cash prizes.
