    It's in SC, not Baltimore. I wish it was a little closer.

    MX, I figured you would be driving by now.

    Grimster:

    Where in Virginia are you? Our convoy seems to be growing daily right now.

    Madmax:

    I'm thinking Mountain Bike Jousting in his hallways. We'll use soft head mops for jousting poles and his trash can lids for shields. We'll scrounge up some buckets for helmets! BRING IT ON MARK, YOU'RE MINE PUNKASS!!!

    Trey:

    Is there an Amtrak station close by going to Charleston? Troy did say one is close by.

    Yeah! this idea dropped quick. Can't let the east coast have all the fun. I mean Matt Polk probably meant to move west, just didn't get around to it

    Hmmm, now this almost justifies the airfare. Do the prostitutes dance well in SC ;)

    Seriously though, there should be a west coast gathering.

    ummmm ok. i'm in for a West coast Polk fiesta!

    up until about a year ago. there weren't enough Polk members for a West coast gathering.

    Luckily that is changing. :)

    I think the club member on the West coast with the most Polk speakers (or a pair of SDA's) has to host the gathering. :p

    Guess that disqualifies me.. i don't have any SDA's. waaaaaaa!!!!

    My house is always avilable, if I dont sell it before then. But my music collection and gear I feel is not enough to justify people coming over to check it out. But if some of you want to bring gear over then all could be good.
    Wish I was a polkologist then I could call my self Dr.warviper.

    Uh, no, you aren't. Well, you can come to Charleston, just don't expect to make it into the house.

    Look, I want this to be a friendly event and to that end, I do reserve the right to uninvite those that don't play well with others. Those that aren't welcome, know who they are. Everyone else, including Dan, is more than welcome.

    Anyhoo....let's keep this on track. Let's see if we can get a list together with the gear that people are planning on bringing. Is there any interest in a two day event? How many golfers are there?

    Just throwing out some ideas..

    I am planning on being there, only about three hours or so away. I am just off 95 (1.5 miles) in Georgia so anybody coming from the South we could hook up.

    I enjoy smacking the little ball around so I would be up for golf. Also I could hitch up Reelltrouble and tow her up if any interest in fishing the local water of Charleston, since I have never fished there would need someone who had a few secrect spots!!

    Seems like alot of folks are interested so maybe two days is a good idea, hell Monday is a holiday for me, so great way and place to spend a long weekend.

    I bought most of my 2 ch gear from folks in the flea market so of course they have heard it, easy to move the 2 ch stuff though (except the SDA), so maybe they want to give it a kiss and say hello!:p

    Have some 55i's that have some small nicks so could bring those without much worry, have one of those little Tosh 3960 unmodded.

    Put me on the list. I'll ship in a few items ahead of time, and have it covered on the Tube linestage / amp front. I've got some pretty neat things coming in.

    As far as 'the sights' and golf, and all that stuff, not really interested - but I'll tag along if it's the order of the day. I want to see yous guys, and check out gear, F everything else.

    Cheers,
