    A bunch of jerks from this forum get together and tell a bunch of lies while drinking both expensive and cheap booze. Then they all hug each other. Some give each other "special hugs".
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!

    Sometimes they whip the snot out of the English language too.

    Basically, a big gathering of Polkies... lots of gear to demo, lots of food to eat, and drinks to drink. Usually a multi-day affair, but one big day (either Friday or Saturday) is planned.

    Most often held at a member's house, but occasionally held at Polk HQ in Baltimore.

    Also available - mini-fests, throughout the year. Usually small, and regionalised.

    You owe it to yourself to get to a gathering or a fest. We're not as weird as we seem online!
    Ludicrous gibs!

    Good thing that some members have a never ending supply of snot.

    I'm sure if you're not drunk not hugging would be needed.

    You shouldn't be, and if you missed PF I'm sure you would feel you missed something.
