Definitely planning on attending the festivities since it's a leisurely 16 mile drive for me! Hell, I may even cruise in on the Harley!
This is the year I score a locket of the legendary hair from Jesse's melon!
this thread sure hit the skids.. even though airline prices skyrocketed recently.. i'm still holding out that I can make it.
I plan to be there; anyone other Polkies in central Florida besides Joe and me?
I'm in NE, so you will be coming by my house on the way Jim. I am marking my calander for a little time off. We have to go right by RT1's on the way also.
Jim, I usually fly in Baltimore for PF.
Is anyone from the greater Houston area driving to PF that could bring me a pair of bookshelves w/stands currently residing in Katy?
taking the time off.......ROAD TRIP!!!!!
coming from North Jersey with a Chevy pickup regular cab, so room for one comfortably and 2 not so comfortably (think I might stick to one), if any South Jersians are interested.
plenty of room for gear though if any shuttling is needed
Man, PF can't get here quick enough....
I just hope Mark still has my Polk director chairs.
Well Mark and I should be attending, he had to check his schedule he thought he was going to be out of town that week but he's not so I can come down.
It will be a great time, 2008 was a blast! George I'm looking forward to seeing you again.:smile:
PolkFest - we're working on it.
September will be here in a blink and we are working on plans for PolkFest. Over the next few weeks, I'll be passing along the agenda and additional details. As we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary, I can promise this Polkfest will be special.
The festivities will start at our Baltimore headquarters at 10 am on Friday, September 21st where there will be tours, demos, peaks behind the curtain, etc. You can get as geek as you want. And as a special bonus, you will have the opportunity to abuse Patrick in person. If you have the stomach for more, the party gets serious on Saturday at a yet to be named location.
If you're looking for places to stay, Toni has put a hold on a block of 25 rooms at the Hilton Pikesville. Dates held are 9/20, 9/21, 9/22 and 9/23. The rate is $120.00. You can call and book yourself. Mention "Polk Audio/Polk Fest" and ask to book under the room block for September. Rooms will be held until Sept 6th.

Pikesville, MD 21208
Polk Audio Polk Fest block of rooms

If you have ideas or suggestions to help make this more special, let me know.
Will Stu's Baltimore video be shown again?
I'm planning on this, got the week off and will just have to book the room and flight.
Can't wait to see everyone that I haven't been able to meet in person yet.
I like when I tell people I'm going to Polkfest...they are like Polk? :eek: and then they stop asking questions...
anyone in the WI area want to fly with me? I was prob going to fly out of Milwaukee or Chicago depending on what will be a better rate.
Well last week brought forth an issue that will probably prevent me from attending PF... I shouldn't have hopped on the band wagon so soon.
Needless to say I'm frustrated but it's out of my control.
That's a really bad weekend for me - but, I really want to go. I expect to be there.
for those people who have never been to a PolkFest.. do not miss it. you will kick yourself in the arse once you see and hear how much fun you missed out on. Sept is way far away still.. so plan accordingly. Unless you're attending a funeral (your own) you don't want to miss PF12 :biggrin:
