    Troy-
    Still planning on making it. Will be my 1st Fest! Wife got the wkend off just working on a babysitter now. Does anyone ever bring extra gear to trade, sell ect.. (Not a trailer full just a couple pieces) Maybe something to raffle off for the Givens Center, or karma off to lucky # picked ect. Could you pm an address and any updates on where most of the guys end up staying in the $90-130/night price range. Thanks for hosting and being such a big part of Polk Fest lore.

    Yes Yes Yes....there will be, I'm sure, gear for sale/trade. There will be raffle items for the Githens center. All kinds of goodness to be had.

    As far as hotels, my recommendation is anything around the airport. There is a Hyatt Place, Hampton Inn, Staybridge Suites adjacent to Ashley Phospate Road....those would be my recommendations.

    I started another thread for folks to post stuff they are looking to buy, or wanting to sell/trade at the 'Fest here. Figured that might help keep this thread more about the event/lodging/logistics, etc.

    I'm a newbie to the thread. My husband is soooo into Polk! I'm not gonna lie, I enjoy all the speakers we have. My brother-in-law lives in Charleston, SC. I mentioned Polkfest to my husband and he said he's always been DYING to go to one! I can't find much info online. Someone please tell me more!

    It's just a big ol' party. We get together and eat, drink, listen to music, tell lies about women and audio gear.....It's just a fun get together with people with a common interest. Nothing too complicated! Check out the beginning of the thread for the particulars of this year.....do a search on past Polk Fests and I think you will get a good read on what goes on!

    Okay, just a few short weeks away.....

    Couple of things:

    1. I need to assemble a attendee list.....just so I have an idea of who is showing up.

    2. Can this be made into a sticky?

    3. Anyone bringing gear?

    I'm getting pretty jazzed about the event, I hope you all are too!

    Status of Resources:

    Here is what I currently have on hand....

    Mancave:

    B&W Matrix 802 S3
    VPI Scoutmaster
    Parasound PLD 2000 preamp/ Dodd one-off phono stage
    SACDMods Sony SCD-555ES

    Also have Quad 988's / Dodd Battery Pre / Dodd/Cocci rebuilt Heathkit W5M's....

    I also have a HT rig with B&W's.....I'm hoping to have a new AVR before PF but we'll see.

    I was hoping to resurrect Ted's Amazings that I sent to an early, yet glorious demise, prior to PF but that doesn't look like it's going to pan out. I was a day late and a dollar short on a pair of ribbons recently....so that doesn't appear to be in the cards.

    I'm hoping that I can get a loaner pair of LSiM's to demo against the 802's / Quads....so we'll see how that goes.

    Food and booze will be in great supply.

    Someone asked me about attending this. I don't remember who but I am, unfortunately, out for sure.

    I was just informed that I will be attending Arcsight training the week before (T-F) just in time to set up new servers that weekend. Since I already have plans for the following weekend and it has to be done before the 25th to meet a business requirement, I have no other choice but to be working the weekend of the PF since I can't move my plans for the next weekend.

    So nobody ask me if I'm going. 'k?

    I know you're all sorely disappointed but you'll just have to man up and soldier on without me.

    I'm sure dorokusai and Al are thoroughly relieved at this news.
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!
