    Man, I wish I were on that list. I HAVE to work though. I need a different job. Life is just too short to miss this sort of thing. Bad part is I get no real benifit for being the dedicated worker I am other than a swift kick in the **** at review, raise or boneus time. :mad:

    Maybe next year I'll get my priorities straight...

    My mom is under no delusions about my virtue......


    OK, gang, I'm getting ready to return to the gold ol' USA tommorow so I'll be off the air for a couple of days.

    Those that are planning on attending, please, send me an email sometime next week at: [email protected] and put polkfest in the subject line (so I don't think you are trying to sell me something to make my johnson bigger). I'll then consolidate the emails and send out my home phone # (which most have anyway) along with directions both to the hotel and from the hotels to my house.

    Sound good?

    OK, gang, we are now under TWO WEEKS until the big event.

    I need a favor, for those that are attending and haven't emailed me yet, please, let me know. I've got to order the grub and need a reasonably accurate count.

    Thanks,

    Troy

    Zero,

    What about renting a car? You could prolly bag a subcompact on hotwire or some such for 20 a day. You can crash here, I have food for Friday night and all day Saturday....shouldn't be much of an outlay of cash, to be honest.
