    Kewl! I'm waiting for vaca bids to start. If I get the week off, I'll meet Carl and drive up with him. Wonder if we'll have a 'white' van with speakers in the back this time? Or one with seats.

    Perfect timing on this event! Doesn't interfere with Bike Week which is one week prior.

    Rich and I should be leaving around noon. Depending on what time Rich get's in to Pittsburgh, we could meet up with you for coffee somewhere. Definately for dinner. We'll find Al and whoever else is willing to dine with us swine! It should be a great time!

    I will most likely drive to Ricardo's and then leave from there like we did for Lou's PF. But exact route plans are still tentative.

    Lots of buzz on this. HQs really makes this almost "obligatory". But, I don't have my class schedule for next semester in hand yet. And moving the Fest from its October slot throws a bit of a wrench in the works, because the old date used to coincide with our two day fall break?

    If I do get down, I'll be driving the I-95 corridor from Maine to Baltimore. Will be another week or two before work schedule is known. I would hate to miss this one!

    Carl, Rich and I will go with our fedoras and tommy guns to your house and kidnap you if necessary.
    She'll have to deal with the Chicago, Pittsburgh and New York syndicates to get you back.

    Plan to be at headquarters ready for a full day. We will start at 10 am with a welcome and get right down to business - many demos, a tour, a full geek engineering presentation, Q&A, Food and Fun.

    By the way, if anyone having trouble finding accomodations?

    I'm still up in the air whether or not I will be there. It's probably going to come down to the wire whether or not I am there.

    KAB and I were talking about the 'fest yesterday, it's going to be a blast. I'm looking forward to losing my n00b status and finally experiencing a Polk Fest. Does anyone have any (appropriate) pics from fests of yore that I could post of facebook?
