    Default PolkFest 08 ?

    I know PF07 just ended... but where is the 08 Polkfest going to take place or has that not been decided yet?

    I know Michael_W is hosting one in January 08 in BC, Canada.

    is there another one planned for a "warmer" time of the year anywhere else? ;)

    any chance it would come out West next year? West coast travel is so much easier for me. :D

    It will be back at HQ in Baltimore for '08 and '09 is slated for another shindig in South Carolina.

    Sweet, I can provide room and board for some of the travelers. Make it a bit easier for some of you out of towners to make it.

    Was there ever a Polkfest in NYC? I'm new to the forum but I think NYC would be a great place for a Polkfest.

    I missed the HQ PF a couple of years ago because it fell on my youngest's 18th birthday. Some things take priority over PF (not may though). I plan on being there in 08 and if it is back at Troy's in 09...well...wild horses and all that....

    Al, if you wanted warmer you should of come to Georgia, it was downright hot, of course once all the Yanks left the big Rebels in the Sky turned off the heat and humidity. Of course I like Baltimore, SC, and Georgia sites for fests, although I am thinking aTejas event somewhere maybe 0-10.......anyway, it is great to see the Fest's planned out for a long time to come.

    I've been to NYC and I'm not going back...not even for a PF.

    If you go to Manhattan, avoid the subway and take cabs to get around. Also try to avoid traveling during rush hour, then it's not bad at all. The rest of the 5 boroughs aren't bad as long as you don't drive during rush hour. There's much worse places to drive or travel through, such as the DC/VA area. Thank goodness for the beltway.

    NYC? Hell no! Why? Major PITA, major $$$, no room to spread out. Lack of parking. (Yeah, I guess you could use mass transit) but there are much better locations. Other than maybe downtown SF or DC, I can't think of a worse location. No, I take that back, it is the worst location possible. Even worse then Yellowknife.

    Ok; so Polk headquarters 08. Just make sure it is not between June 15 and July 30. Any other dates are fine.

    Hmm, I can understand that. However the amount of hi-fi/2 channel stores in NYC is just staggering. I cannot think of a better place to demo great gear and listen to wonderful music.

    When I went down to NC, aside from Trey's system, there was like ONE other hi-fi place. In NYC there are more than 10. Easily. Meaning that there are lots of places to see wonderful gear.

    I will be kind, since I am not feeling all that great at the moment.......**** No on NYC,,,,,,,,,,Polkfest is not about going around to a bunch of audio stores, really, get a grip. I have been to NYC many times and love the place for a visit, lots of excitement but bad for a Fest.........

    Shack stayed in Ga. for 40 bucks a night at a decent hotel, you get heating grate on the sidewalk in NY for that...
