    Post #21
    A bit of an update, although still a ways off, I did hear back from Al at HQ, he says anytime in October will work for them. To pick it and let him know so they can plan on it.

    Sooooooo, I am thinking Oct. 5-7, October 8, is Columbus Day (a day off for me) so could extend the Fest or just do some stuff around the area.

    What say all the Broham's??? Is this just a terrible date that I dont know about, school or something such???

    apc--Polkfest's are generally three day events, beginning Friday afternoon through Sunday morning or so, they are a ball. Lots of music, gear, food, drinkand libations, you never who might show up in assless chaps, funny hats, or bikini bottoms. Most of all is enjoying meeting the others who frequent this board. The food is prepared by the Host and his merry band of helpers, not the least of whom is Ant'ny and his world famous sausage and peppers.

    John--Airports in Jacksonville Fl. and Savannah Ga., also a smaller Jetport in Brunswick, serviced by Delta through Atlanta.

    Sid--You are most welcome in my home, same rules as last year, dont worry 21 will come.

    RT1--Looking forward and great to see so many familiar and new members planning on being here.

    Insteresting (that is how my 6 year old says it)

    My best friend lives in Brunswick. I might be able to swing a 2fer.
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    Those dates look good to me. This year I think i will fly instead of drive as Lou and I can split a rental car. Man im already getting pumped up for this. If it's anything like last year it will be a blast.

    I might have to make this trip myself. I have some friends in college down there that I will probably visit after. Good music, expensive equipment, drinking, food, sounds like a great time to me.

    How the hell did I miss this thread? Georgia is a much closer destination than previous PF's so I'm going to do everything in my power to make it this time around. Sounds like it's going to be a great time. Looking forward to it.

    Heiney9...I look forward to seeing you there.... However, have you looked at a map lately? Brunswick GA is SOUTH of Charleston SC (home of 2 of the last 3 PFs) and unless I'm mistaken further away from Illinois.

    Maybe you've moved.

    My wife has indicated that spending a weekend in a house with a bunch of drunk audio geeks is the LAST thing she would want to do. She states that ONE is more than enough. She'll pass.

    LOL.....yea geography was never my strong point. For some reason I always think Georgia is the closer of the Southern states. Regardless, this is numero uno on my things to do this year.

    Which hotel on St. Simons? I just googled it and it's showing there are alot to choose from. It's going to be just myself and I so something small should do the trick.

    We have more hotels than you can shake a stick at.

    I will be posting up a logistics thread as time grows closer.

    The Island is very nice, its about a 20-25 drive from my house. There are other very nice new hotels much closer at 5-10 minutes drive. The newest ones are at exit 38 off 95, Holiday Inn, Fairfied, Marriott, Country Inn,all offer suites and rooms, 15 minutes away is a Embassy suites which is attached to the Mall.

    There are closer hotels at Exit 36 off of 95, they are a bit older but still nice, everything from super 8, motel 6, comfort Inn, and so on, these are 3-5 minutes from my house.

    Shack==Just get her a room at the Sea Island Cloister, she will bath in luxury, and you get the honor of paying her bill. After all the woman did agree to sleep with you. Other upscale rooms at the King and Prince on St. Simons, very nice.

    Yea if I go I will definately need to be close as possible since renting a car probably won't be an option for me since I'm not 25(only 21). Unless, can you rent cars at 21 near you? Up here it's 25+.

    OK, the Official Dates of the Polkfest are October 5-7, 2007.

    I have had some inquiries from our younger members about coming. You are welcome, with some stipulations:

    Under age 21, no alcohol, period, no exceptions.
    Under age 18, I absolutely must speak with your parent/guardian and get written permission for you to attend.

    Mark your calenders and make your plans, I will put up a logistics thread in a few days.

    Looking forward to it and hosting all of you at the casa de trouble'.

    ID is too easy to falsify. You must bring your birth certificate with the raised seal and an affidavit from your mom describing the exact position and size of the mole on your rear end.:eek: ;):D

    Anyone from the New England area interested in traveling together? Could work out a flight/car rental if we end up staying at the same or near hotels.

    Well, Ive missed this thread for awhile.. Id love to attend.. I would have a friend with me (she is in a wheelchair/can use a walker though) would that be a problem? Any type of accessibility issues? What could we bring to help the host (food)?

    Thanks,

    Josh

    T-O.

    Dang. Unfortunately, the house is not very wheelchair friendly. You have to be able to somehow get up 16 stairs to get to the main living level, then stairs to a top floor and stairs to a bottom floor to get off it.

    I suppose the main level would not be a problem once she reached it as its a pretty open floor plan.

    If you decide to come, don't worry about food, just about enjoying yourselves.
