    how about Aug. 7th or 8th? that weekend would work for me.. but Warviper, it's your call.

    Are you thinking something small on sat. then the main day being on Sunday. or sunday only?

    Just want to be on the same page. Once we got the date set... I think more will be on board with this. ;)

    I dont see a problem with that date. Im off to slave away monday morning but feel free to stay the whole day. Lol longer if you like Im realy woudnt mind.


    It would be great if you guys could bring different gear and Cds. Ill try to pay the electric bill till after the meeting. ;)

    Are you serious about hauling that sub down to Boise?
  • danger boydanger boy Posts: 15,888

    the beauty of tube subs.. they are light weight. it's a whopping 48 pounds light.

    about half the weight of a comparable box sub. Plus I need to build up my arms. ;)

    I've been gone and week... and no more people are on board with the Pac Northwest audiofest 2004?

    Come on guys... the more people the more beer we can consume. lol

    warviper is kind enough to offer up his pad for us to get together and talk and listen and just generally BS in a nice relaxed atmosphere.

    How about it guys? Lets make this happen in Boise.

    warviper, do you know of any el cheap-o motels in Boise or near your place? I"m really looking forward to this audiofest and drinking some beers and checking out some fine tunes.

    BTW, i like most any beer.. except the dark heavy ones.. to malty/hoppy for my tastes. ;)

    No need for hotels I have one guest bedroom and a spare bedroom. I also have six couches available if more people are coming over. I would be honored if you guys stayed over.

    warviper,

    that's a very nice gesture.. i'll take you up on it. Saving money on a motel.. means more money for beer. ;)

    ok guys... this is only about two weeks away now. How come more Northwest guys haven't signed up yet? C'mon it's not that far to Boise. It'll be more fun than mowing the lawn on a hot summer day. ha ha ha.

    who's in for sure?

    1. Warviper (host)
    2. Danger Boy
    3. Zen Dragon ?
    4. ??
    5. ??

    how cool would it be to have a few more guys with more gear to demo? :D

    Every thing is still good to go on my end. Making sure the wife is ready and putting togeather some food for you to try it should be a great time. Wish more were coming. Maybe after you confirm that Im not some three eyed freak that next year there will be more people that can come.

    Come on you west coast people, get your arse's in gear. What could be better than hanging out with other Polkies for a day or so and listening to gear!?!

    Sorry guys I have been out of pocket. Had someone leave at work which means 12 and 14 hour days for the last couple weeks. I am very sad to say this weekend is a no-go for me. I have house guests traveling in to visit. I am major bummed as I would have loved to do a Polk gathering. Warm weather, bar-b-que, beer and music just go together in such a great way. I am very sorry I can not attend. :(
    Half my Summer's been a bust so far from the work schedule. Missed a brew fest and a blues festival locally too.
