    Default Polkfest '09

    I noticed this year that we don't have a planned Polkfest, or if we do it sure isn't being discussed. Rumor was after last years PF that our brother TroyD was gonna host the next one. Those rumors have slowly withered away to non existance with no talk whatsoever as to the next official Polkfest.

    Reason I ask is if no one wants to step up to the plate, I have an ideal location with excellent power, plenty of room for however many rigs we want to set up and accommodations to hold Polkfest if no concrete plans have been made. I'd be willing to step up to the plate to help organize it. I'm still kicking myself in the arse because I missed last years PF due to circumstances beyond my control and I can't go another year without seeing you crazy mo-fo's again. :D

    Just to give you a heads up, if a location hasn't been picked out already, the location that I have in mind is located in the NC mountains about 7 miles from the TN border.

    I'm there,, wherever it will be held. I am jonesing for a Polk Fest. It's like returning home,after a long absence.6-7 months fly by when you reach my age.:)FWIW,, I was also under the impression that it would be held in the Charleston S.C. area.

    I thought I read that BDT was moving to NC.

    Hmmm, I remember hearing that as well. I don't know whether or not he's still keeping the digs down in Charleston though. He's pretty busy right now but I'm sure he'll chime in shortly to fill us in. I definitely don't want to step on his toes but I definitely do want to attend a Polkfest this year. I figured that if I post about a Polkfest '09, that it would get the ball rolling one way or another.

    I went to Troy's last shindig. Had a blast. Bastard wouldn't sell me his VPI.:( My job situation has kept me from going the last couple of years, but I got good news today and will be back to work Friday. Hopefully by PFest time later this year, I'll be able to go. I've met some really good folks and some freaks:p at the two I've attended, but there are several others I'd like to shake hands with and thank.

    I've only missed one out of the last 5 PFs (05 MD - was my daughter's 18th Birthday). I WILL be at PF09 if it materializes.

    Congrats Noel! Now....if there is a PF 09 you better be there Noel!

    Hey gang, I've been remiss on this one....

    In terms of PF '09.....and yours truly hosting.....if trietz3 wants to host, I'm down with that.

    It's not that I don't WANT to but I've got a lot of balls in the air right now and it would probably be June before I can committ to a time and/or location.

    That said, there WILL be a PF '09. If trietz3 doesn't want to or if the consensus that we want another BDT hosted fest....I'm down BUT I won't be able to nail down anything concrete until I get settled and figure out what my schedule looks like back in the US.

    Let's try to do it this summer if possible, the last one was a little chilly out.

    Tom,

    Are you talking about the camp grounds where you guys held the Carver Fest?

    If you are that place sounds Awesome!

    I prefer the fall. The mid September/October date has seemed to work well for the past 5 years or so.

    At Polk Headquarters & at Al's house it was too chilly out. I want to lounge out with shorts, sandals & a light shirt. I don't want to be chily while hanging out with you ho's

    It didn't bother SOME of us. We were out there well after midnight and were doin' just fine.

    This year its going to be in the south...where fall evenings are perfect.

    Besides...I would prefer to NOT see you in shorts and a light shirt.

    I wouldn't, however classify it as a campground though. Although to Donald Trump? Eh, he might consider it an "acceptable" campground. :p
