    Default Polkfest, Texas Style

    Any of you Polkies from Texas or the surrounding states interested in a Polkfest? I live in Dallas and it seems like I live in the only region of the country that isn't debating one. Who's down?

    And my bad at improperly using the term Polkfest. I didn't know it was an official term for the real meeting. I just thought it was what you called it when CP members meet up and listen to gear together.

    No problem. It is Polkies getting together. I just call them mini-fests. I hope people show interest. These gatherings are a great way to meet Polkies.

    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks

    Organize something guys.

    There will be an LSiM open house, in the not too distant future (dates tbd), and Lone Star Audio Fest is right around the corner too.... You can use the term, we invented it. ;)

    Theres a guy selling that exact same Sunfire up here. I'm hoping nobody will get it in the next month or so and I can snatch it from him. I've got money tied up in my Yukon and 2-ch system otherwise I'd start talking to him now.

    I'm up for it, especially if its in the metroplex. Don't have much in the way of Home Audio to share but can definitely audition the SR's in my camaro for those who are interested.

    I definitely wanna hear those SRs. I'm actually about to pull everything except my 15s from my Yukon and sell them, so I'll be in the market for some new gear.

    What's everyone up to Super Bowl Sunday? Anyone have an epic setup and an extra seat on the couch?

    That would be awesome.


    I'd prefer it sometime around mid-late March at the earliest. That would hopefully give me the opportunity to get the new house squared away and reduce potential conflicts.

    Not sure yet. Is anyone getting LSiMs? If so, I'd like to coordinate this to be a few weeks after their release so they're nice and broken in and can be compared to the regular LSi.

    On another note, would any of you guys who live in Dallas be interested in grabbing some brewskis sometime so that we're not all foreign faces when we actually do our mini Polkfest? I live around the North Dallas Tollway and the GWB Turnpike

    Once I move to the area I might be available, but that's still mid-late March most likely. I'll be in the 380/DNT area.
