Might be Vol. 6...but, whatever...

Ok folks, it's written in STONE. No more date fluctuation.

Polkfest is BACK. Like F1Nut...it's Nationwide.

So, the drill is the same as in the 4 previous Carolina PF events. Pregame Friday evening. Fest on Saturday and get out of town on Sunday.

I am literally minutes from the Charleston Airport and Amtrak/bus station....there are hotels up the yang yang within a 5 min. drive. It's a very easy location to get to.

As I've alluded to previously, this is open to everyone that can employ some common sense. No post count etc etc. Spouses are encouraged to attend.....we've had kids but while I'm not saying no, it is an adult event. I've got a dog and two cats....and they have their run of the joint.

Food and beverages will be served......

This is primarily a social event with some great audio....so, if you are coming to sit silently to evaluate gear amongst pointy-head nerds in a library/morgue setting, you may be disappointed.

Questions??

    I can promise you that it will NOT be boring. That, you can take to the bank.

    Just another fly on the wall.....pay him no attention. Without food? He'll die a meaningless death.
