    That is Ron on the Left and I'm in the middle, and Russman on the right!.

    At the end of the night Sunday I stopped next door to see Jim's full range and a another oldr from lSAF Paul showed up and grabbed a man John and Norma I sent a Text Message telling Ron & Russman to get over here then 2 more show up and ron was just saying alll that is miss that was still there a the hotel was Dave from Raven audio and our own @helipilotdoug and just then they walked in after hearing all the noise :p

    then we switched to Ron ron to hear Ron & Russmans new speaker with Raven Audio integrated Tube amp and I finnaly got to to bed at 3:00am and woke up and 7:30 am with one he$$ of a headache but it was worth it ;)

    we ended up in my room cause i had a few beers left, then Ron brought the rest and the party was on and topped it with some 110 proof Maker's Mark.

    also Russman was the DJ all night.. he keep us Rocking!!

    Also I got to meet Lightman & Linda! Good people I glad I got to meet and talk with and hang out a little with. Spent some time room hopping with Russ and I went outside late that one night with him, so he could smoke and we spent a long time out there just talking about everything, think I got to be around 2-2:30 am that night.

    @dkfreebird came up and I got to meet & hang out with Dennis for awhile, I went with him as he went around checking out all the room and stuff! Me him & Marvin went to the Ten-50 BBQ and it was excellent! Dennis is great and was a blast to hang out with.

    Glad you guys had a blast Sunday night. Wish I could say I wish I was there, but I went home and slept for 13 hours straight... And I had to be woken up at that.

    I really had a lot of fun and it was great to see the fellas again.

    Ps - it ain't a party until the fire alarm gets tripped... The party started before I left.

    I wonder if Danny every got some sleep? I imagine he did the same when we got home.

    Was great Hanging out with Skip, Ron, Russman, Marvin, Halen, Danny, Doug again and seeing meeting Russ & Dennis for the 1st time. Great stuff, I enjoyed Skip's Rosso though the room made it tough on him to dial them all the way (my ears still find them excellent to listen too)

    Ron's C4's are a must see, they are something special and he knows he going to be supper happy with them and those Amplifiers were beast's.

    When Russman played some Beatles on their new speakers for me they were stunning!

    Yep. A good time all around. Saw and heard some great gear and met some more Polkies. Good to meet Ron, Darryl, Marvin, Danny ,Dennis Skip, Halen,Doug and several more. Good to see Russman again after all these years.
    Their speakers are a top notch set. Lots of labor and research have paid off. Watch out for these sets on the market. You WILL NOT be disappointed!
    I made the mistake if taking Linda into the Raven Audio/Legacy speakers room. I will be selling blood and anything else that isn't nailed down. Showed her the JMW Speakers as well. I will be working two or three jobs. Audio is subjective but with a few libations, we all concurred on everything ;)
    Thanks for the great hospitality and good times folks.
    Hope to see you all again soon.

    You won't get much for them, Dan. High mileage, road rash. Wear and tear. Scrap value maybe.

    Ah, finally some names and descriptions. I was getting tired of looking at pictures of a bunch of dudes sitting around in hotel rooms, drinking and admiring each others' wood.
    I disabled signatures.

    next is Mike who sells open baffle speakers he makes from Danny Richie's designs
    Norman I forgot what he makes and sells,
