AXPONA 2023 April 14-16

Just 50 days away! Who all plans to go this year?

Would be a great opportunity to meet some of the Illinois and surrounding-area members (@ebelsoul, @pitdogg2, @Faustin, @charley96, @SCompRacer, @drt1978, @cstmar01, @indyhawg - told you guys I was keeping track Lol) like we were discussing doing in that Audio Solutions in Indy thread a short while back, plus any other Club Polk members!

Looks like some good seminars and speakers on Saturday the 15th!

    Usually in San Diego end of March early April if I'm back in time I just might have to make this one. It's been a couple of years it would be great to see the crew again. Does Audio Thesis still have a room?

    From what DSkip told me, he is going to go but not have any rooms. Wants to be able to mingle more.

    I'm going to miss out this year. Saving my pennies for the next purchase.

    That would be pretty cool to roll with skippers room to room. Loved his rooms in the past but yea I get it.

    Thanks for the update Todd.

    I’ll be there! Most likely working for one of our rooms again but always down to try and get away for a few hours to see everything else.

    I plan on being there on Saturday. I have always enjoyed meeting up with everyone and going from room to room.

    Saturday is what a few others of us are planning.

    Is there a time and landmark/room (Polk?!) you guys have used to meet up in the past? Thinking if we post it in here somewhere we might be able to pick up any last-minute stragglers.

    Typically, I say I'm not going, then Doug (dkg999) calls and says he's going so I do go and then Aaron @ALL212 says count me in too and he gets another Klaus upgrade... :D Last couple years I only attended on Friday.

    Looks like we have the following saying they will be there on Saturday (just a little over a week away!):

    @lightman1
    @cstmar01
    @indyhawg
    @erniejade
    @pitdogg2
    @bcwsrt

    and potentially a few others!

    Maybe Ivan has everyone’s phone numbers so we can connect? If not, I’ll do a group PM in the next couple of days and share my info.

    Anyone else, feel free to PM me or respond here and I’ll add you to the group!

    Looking forward to it!

    We are riding up together, too. That looks like it will be uncomfortable while driving.
