    Josh ain't gonna be there this year, unless he shows up just for a personal visit.

    Doug said he won't be able to make it this year due to health and that he's still open for business.
    Raven Audio and Austin Audioworks will be there.
    The guys from the Black Hole out of Houston said they may be there.

    Some black duds from Houston. At one show they were jamming so hard everyone thought they had blown a speaker.

    The Black Hole guys are some of the friendliest, most cool dudes one would ever meet, with great taste in music. When they throw down? Man, they throw down somethin' fierce! Looking VERY forward to seeing them again!!! Love 'em!

    It’s looking more and more like I’m going to be there either Friday or Saturday instead of both. That being the case, should I come Friday or Saturday? Probably looking at getting there around 2:00 either day.

    Paul, did you decide on a day? I, too, had to shrink the trip down to one night. I land at Hobby airport at 9:30am on Saturday and have a departing flight at 11:30am Sunday.

    Hope to see you there. It would be great to meet in person!

    To all those that are attending - Make it known here that you will be attending and I'll make a PM list to include all. We'll swap contact info, plans, GTG's, dinners and the like that way.

    The secret phrase to get the skinny is, "I identify as a Prius".

    How about Skip's room? I'm bad about names if I don't see you every couple of days. :D

    Next year everyone can get a tee shirt with their name and Polk name on it :)
