    Troy, I may be headed down here in the next hour or two which would put me there around 10 or 11. How late are you guys and TLW planning on staying up?

    Ok, PF is officially underway!

    We had dinner at Brecks last night....hopefully we didn't poison anyone! So far, so good though. It's just great to see everyone. I'm going to pick up the BBQ and the fried chicken about 10 am and after that....the fest is ON!!

    Again, I REALLY hope that I get the LSI 703s....

    Great weekend. I really enjoyed meeting everyone and the hospitality shown by Troy & his lovely wife Wendy was incredible.

    Truly wish more of the core polkies were here. I think it broke Troy's heart to tell me that I won the 703's when I got back after dinner with my wife. Unbelievable. They are phenomenal speakers that I will enjoy for years. Many thanks to Polk and those involved who continue to support their fans.

    More to follow but for now, sleep.

    I'll get a few pics up after getting home Monday and back to the computer.

    Well looks like giving away the crib paid you back in spades Travis. Couldn't be happier for you!

    Again, small in number but I think that it still solidified what PF was originally intended to be....about community. A group of guys getting together with, really, not much in common but a love of music and audio. It's just amazing to me that guys who don't know each other except digitally come together and become lifelong friends. That's the cool thing and I really appreciate the fact that, historically, Polk nurtured that concept.

    Thanks again to Jon and Ken from Polk for being PF advocates.....I really appreciate it!

    Micah and his wife, can't say enough about them both. Wonderful people even though Micah really does a credible job of making people believe he is a hardened cynic.

    Tom, Travis, Lou, Steve, Dave, Sid.......thanks for coming, I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did.

    For me, it's a bittersweet thing because this will be the last Polk Fest I host. I really love Polkfest. REALLY love it. I love the whole concept but I think it's a bit selfish for me to have it here as often as we have. That said, the Ansley Trail Inn is always open to everyone!

    Again, thanks to everyone.....just a great time!!!

    BDT

    Oh, and yes, I'm bitter about not winning the 703's......dammit!!!

    So sorry I could not make it Troy. You and Wendi are always great hosts. But at least I got to see Lou as he stopped here on his way down.

    Sorry I missed it.

    If it wasn't for work and prior commitments, I'd have bummed a ride with Lou.

    Maybe next year.

    Hello buddy! Sorry you couldn't make it this year......I was looking forward to seeing you again, ya' slacker. The planning for next year's fest has already begun. At this point we do not know whether Polk Audio will be involved or not but we sure can keep our fingers crossed. The details will be brought out into the open soon.

    Well, with the 'fest all wrapped up and everybody at home.....all I can say is that it was a blast! It was great to see everybody again and meet some new faces. Troy and TLW sure do have some funny friends. The LSiM's sounded fanf'ntastic. Very surprised about how those little puppies belted out the sound. Polk did very good with that speaker. The hosts [as always] were top notch. We enjoyed some of the best Q south of the border, frogmore stew, a couple of dips, 'tater salad, mixed rice and no food fight got started. We did see Steve get humped by Whizzy though. That's a sight I'll never forget....even though I would like too and to make things worse, it was done in public. This only confirms the suspicion that Steve is into porn but it won't be I who says anything about that. No sirree, not me. I'm just not that type of guy.

    Congrat's go to the Githins Center and to our resident member, Travis for winning the LSiM's. To Troy and TLW.....thanks again for a wonderful time. My hat is off to you both. What a shindig!!!

    What, no beans? Pssh, you guys got something to learn about what to serve when a group of men get in one quaint room to listen to music. Everything sounds better from 3 rooms away anyways.

    Thanks for hosting the four PFs Troy. I know it's a lot of work and you and Wendi deserve some kudos. I have been a member for eight years, been to four Fests and missed four. Maybe next year.

    Congrats TNHNDYMAN for winning the 703s! Enjoy!
