    I am tempted to travel the 1200 miles(1 way) just to see if the rumours are true that Jesse does not
    come out during daylight hours.
    And possibly touch his hair (everybody has a dream, eh?).
    Just have to find some silver bullets first.

    JK Jesse!
    I know your bodyguards would not let me get that close, LOL!

    OK, what exactly goes on at this here Polkfest? I'm not really in the market to purchase more speakers at the moment. I can easily make the ride down from the Phila area Friday or Saturday. Is this more like a business convention or a block party? I'd be interested in getting some Polk shirts and hats. I have 2 hats now but don't really like the design. Is this open to the public or mostly industry? I'm confused...
    Sorry for my ignorance.

    If you're that "close" there IS NO excuse for not coming. As far as what happens I think if you look at the pics in the showcase site that should give you a pretty good idea of previous Fests. A "business convention" is the "last" thing you should think this is. Think of it more like an Audio Mardi Gras or Carnival and you'll be a lot closer!

    So are Saturday's events going to be at the Headquarters? Its tough to get straight info here. One person suggest that Saturday is not open to everybody.

    I was thinking about driving down and getting there around noon or so and hanging til early evening...

    Saturday's location is still to be announced I believe. It is open to all attendees as long as you give me the $5 admission fee. Please try to have exact change when you get there.

    F1nut, thanks. I read the complete thread and think all I need to do is arrive at Polk HQ before 10:00am. The est of the day is scheduled, we'll learn about Saturday's events soon or on Friday. Again, thank you.

    No, Saturday's Polkfest party information will be passed out to those that attend the Friday event at Polk HQ. At least that's how it was done the last time.

    Will there or can there be a swapmeet at the fest?
    What we have is a raffle that benefits the Githens Center, so bring something for that.

    You've got it. See you there.

    I won't need a hotel room if I can stay in the van.

    Thanks to F1Nut for dropping all the knowledge. Even though I'm now part of the Polk Borg, it'll be my first PF, and I'll be learing along with all of you guys!

    So, I can no longer make it to the Friday festivities at HQ... but I may be interested in joining in on Saturday, if that'd be allowed.

    There goes my Polkfest! The company decided to enroll me in a week long (Mon - Fri) training class that is pretty much mandatory for several of us...and it's that week. I was really hoping to snuggle up to Grabass Grand in the back of that van, but it wasn't meant to be.

    Have a blast everyone!

    For all of the new guys coming to Polkfest..

    If you are planning on bring your own gear please note it is a mandatory that you do NOT bring a remote for your gear, does not matter if the unit is inoperable without it - we dont need it... and for the record it DOES take three people to operate a cd player
