    At least the trip does now seem like a doable reality (and would be a total blast). My Bimmer makes a sweet road trip car, unless there is snow on the ground, then I might as well be in an '82 Camaro.

    Lets make sure we tie off on this and drink some beer together regardless! sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

    Sounds good. You can email me at [email protected]. I'm leaving today to head up to Lincoln, NE for the weekend, for the k-state/husker game, but we can get in touch at a later date.

    peace.

    Two thumbs up to Russ for putting this cool even together. I saw some of the pictures from the last Polk gathering and it seemed very fun. I hate it that I could not attend this event but, I know that you guys will have a blast. Could not wait to see the pictures.

    The meet should be a great success with the gear you have alone.

    Wards,

    It was a REAL treat to meet you, and I'm thrilled you actually heard some things you like - Coming from an educated man that has a room with 3000 watts, and next door a room with 3.5 watts - it means a LOT.

    Hope you can make it, I really do.

    Cheers,
    Russ

    I personally plan on passing out IN the fireplace....with two Vifa tweeters as headphones, and a mic stand in my arse.

    Ward, you should make every effort to come join the Russmans' get together. You are now obligated, due to your recent purchase. :) I heard the visit was very cool, and the Bottlehead meet sounds equally neat to me....tubes are my future.

    I personally don't, no.

    I'll get an email out today, and get the gear list firmed up - we'll see what we can do.

    Worse case, I guess we could go buy one, and return it afterwards.

    I would like to come also. Put me on the list for know.

    Hopefully i won't be to busy at school. Should be to much work cause i will have only had 8 days of actual class.

    Plus the 5 hr drive from lubbock is also something to think about.

    Hopefully i will be able to make it out.

    Hey POLKIES!!!

    This is an excellent opportunity to have a genuine, multiple demo experience. Russ has put together an outstanding collection of Polk speakers, as well as, some great editions of non-Polk models.

    Where else will you be able to experience some of what we talk about day after day....night after night??? I know that not everybody wants to do the flight thing, that's a given, but locals should really be altering plans to attend. I use that term local loosely.

    A 4 hour trip, for example, would be a perfect all day getaway, to hear some good music and talk to some new friends.

    Russ has Official POLK support....Official SIGNAL CABLE support...and UN-official Sprint PCS support.

    There may be additional suprises!

    Hey, Polkies and nearby Polkies....just be aware that this is a big thing for some of us, and that it is available for you to check out. It would be a shame to not see some friendly faces at Russ' and talk some ****.

    Think about it, and make it happen folks. Thanks for reading :D

    I'll be out there, but the Polk WRX Wagon will be late ;) It's got a fuel rail problem.

    Pardon the dust on the trim ring around the head unit, hahaha.
