Potential Polkfest 2019 Date

Hey gents!

I'm in discussions right now with Polk to host a Polkfest where their new Legend series will be the star attraction. We tried to make it work in October but we just can't get the dates right. Right now we have it penciled in for:

November 9



If this is something you'd be interested in attending, please express your interest in this thread. I am not confirming yet as there are still many things we have to look at and I also realize this is getting close to Thanksgiving holiday which always becomes a mess. I just need feelers at this time to see if it even works for you guys.

    I'm considering it. If I can sell my MD house, or get a rental tenant by the end of this month then I will feel better about spending money. :)

    Yes. I only had the 5 or 19 to work with and those didn’t work for Polk. I’m going to be in capital audio fest the first weekend in November so that one was out too.

    By the way, the plan at this moment is to have actual Polk representation here. This won’t just be a showcase of the speakers, but a chance to rub shoulders with a guy with over two decades at Polk.

    It's possible. Depends if Russ is going to be here by then and also if I can convince him that me driving is enough for him to cover the hotel, hookers and booze...

    My PTO is blown for the year but it may be feasible to drive down on Friday afternoon and back on Sunday.

    OK. I just got a call and some dates might have opened up in late September to October. This was an unexpected change and will hopefully result in an earlier date.
