    I can't wait to meet all of you and listen to some fine tunes! This week I will be at Carverfest where I will meet many Carver fans that are flying in from all over the country. It will be a prelude to Polkfest! Looking very forward to coming!:D

    Okay, now that we are within the last month of this event, my wife is starting to him and haw about going to Polkfest with me. I don't mind going without her but I really thought she would enjoy it. I'm thinking that if I could show her that she and RT1's lovely wife aren't going to be the only women attending she may change her mind.

    So if all you guys that are coming could sound off and let me know if your wives are coming or not, I would appreciate it.:)

    My wife wouldn't attend Polkfest if it were the last event on earth... Why should she travel hundreds of miles to be around a bunch of drunken, audio geeks playing music too loud when she has to put with that stuff at home? According to her, Polkfest is a time to relax and enjoy...at home.

    I've purchased airline tickets. I'm flying into Jacksonville, arriving around noon on Friday. I think it's going through Philly, I hope Joe's not on this plane;) I plan to get a car. I don't know where I'm staying yet. I am willing to be a designated driver as I rarely drink.

    I'm flying back early Sunday morning, about 7:00 AM out of Jacksonville. I'm willing to take passengers.

    Where's everyone staying? I'll probably go for a Hilton or Marriott property since I've got some point. I may have some Holiday Inn points also. I just don't like Holiday Inns. Most of them smell like hobo piss. They are all kind of **** unless you go to a Crown Plaza.

    Well the shuttle from the airport to Brunswick is a ridiculous cost, so if your really stuck and cannot get out from there to the Fest give me a call, I bet we can arrange at least one airport run.

    Sure. Interested in playing one of the courses at Sea Island? $260 for the Seaside course or $210 for the Plantation or Retreat Course. A little pricy but I can get us on if interested. Lunch at the Davis Love Grill as well.

    Just curious -- if I were to bring the Taylos with me -- is anyone interested in hearing them??

    Since the truck has a bed cover, I can put them in heir boxes, wrap the boxes in plastic and be on the road with them - no problems.

    Just curious if anyone was remotely interested in hearing them.

    Yea, they are great, you two Rockafellar's knock yourself out.

    There are some courses close to the casa in the 50 buck range that are fairly nice. Oak Grove comes to mind along with Sea Pines. Maybe the Jekyll Island courses.

    It's only money. Easy come..easy go. It was just a thought.

    I've heard of Oak Grove and played the original Ocean Course at Jekyll. You're the local knowledge and I will seek your guidance on my Coastal GA links experience.

    Sea Palms on St. Simons is nice, still expensive but not like the Sea Island courses, if your only going to play one and have the dough the Cloister courses you mentioned are the ticket.

    The Oak Grove Course is closet to the house, just let me know when you are coming in.

    demo speakers can be played on the upstairs Manley Rig, under no circumstances can the speakers be changed out with the Stingray On, it must be turned off BEFORE you can disconnect the speaker cable from the speaker of the integrated amp itself. Sorry do not mean to offend anybody but we have had gear ruined in the past.

    Trey is designated as Official Rack Master for the Manley Tube Rig, no changes unless he is present and in charge of the change over. Just turn the Manley Off before doing anything.

    OK, some of the guys are PM'ing about where folks are staying so please post up your hotel.

    Whatever you want Anthony you got it. Just get me the sauseege...... I need some for the Low Country Boil as well as your peppers dish, it will be mixed with shrimp as far as the flavor use your best judgement.

    Anthony is designated as Official Cook for the Fest.

    I have a call into the Fire Marshall to get clearance on this issue, waiting for his call back to me.

    Its getting really close now, I am of course jazzed about the Fest and all the great new members who are coming as well as seeing many of the broham's from past Fests.

    The curse touched me a bit and we had to move out of the house for two weeks but its all better now.

    Curse?:confused:


    Okay, I am arriving Friday at Noon into Jacksonville. I'm renting a car and driving to the Marriott Courtyard arriving about 2:00 PM. I'll take a nap and drive over to RT1's place arriving when he says it's okay for the home invasion to start on Friday. I'll be there all day Saturday, driving to Jacksonville on Sunday morning for a 7:00 AM flight.

    I am willing to drive anyone who is arriving in Jacksonville around the time I'm landing (Noon) or leaving on Sunday.

    I looking forward to meeting all of you and having an enjoyable visit.

    I am more than happy to take on that responsibility. I will make sure your casa stays unburned.
