Fall Shindig - October 14, 2017

OK gents. If you want to see how us Texas dudes do it right, here is another opportunity. The 2016 version went off exceptionally well and included Polkies from coast to coast. This one will be bigger, badder, and tube-ier. You will DEFINITELY want to see/hear the gear that will be present at this event.

This one will also extend beyond the Polk brethren and is open to anyone who wishes to attend. Last year's attendance was right at 35-40... this one should exceed those numbers handily. Parking may become an issue, but the house should accommodate most and if it doesn't, I've also got a greenbelt next to the house for a getaway.

This will be a PITA for me since I'll be getting back from RMAF a few days prior, but the party MUST happen. I put everything I have into hosting these meets and your attendance makes it worth it. Anyone who is willing to help on Friday night to set up is definitely invited.

I am now living in Arlington, TX, just 20 minutes away from DFW Airport. I should be able to host a few that cannot afford hotels for a night or two.


If you need some influential powers to convince you to bring your ears down to Texas, just review the 10 page thread about last year's event: http://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/173592/2016-fall-audio-bash-north-texas#latest


This is happening. Will you be a part of it?

    I'm betting the Tequila has nothing to do with that meanness.

    Won't be able to make it due to gaining custody of my kid and the increased costs associated BUT I do expect pictures and I look forward to them. I do make yearly trips to Texas and usually fly into Love field so hopefully soon I can pop by.

    BIG news to share - you heard it here first!

    Not only will Jessica, the CEO of North Star Design be at this event, but Lorenzo from MastersounD will also be showing. This event will be international!

    If you are on the fence, get off. This is a perfect opportunity to talk directly with those in the know. There's going to be oodles of gear to gawk at to boot.

    If you've never been to one of my events, this isn't a 'small' thing for me. I go all out and turn the place into an audio funhouse. Guys come in for the weekend and make it a unique experience.

    Sounds like an even bigger event this year, and I had a great time last year. However, since I am going to FL for the last week in September, and then to Peru for two weeks in November I am going to miss this year. Enjoy.
