***COMPLETED***

I know you've been waiting patiently. At long last, I managed to pin down the genius (not Paul).

As promised, Polkfest 2008 will be in Baltimore. On Friday October 17th, we will expect to see you all at Polk Headquarters. On Saturday October 18th festivities will resume (continue) at a nearby location to be announced. On Sunday, you will go away :)

Doro has kindly volunteered to herd the cats. I'll see if Hedy can arrange hotel deals. And I will recede into the shadows, letting Doro and you conspire. I expect you to leave B'more in the same shape you found it.

See you then.

Al

    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    Sounds great. What happens if some of us want to stay for a week? Will we be able to sleep at the HQ's, or at this Doro's place?

    I've heard Doro loves company.

    By the way, Anthony, fireworks are frowned upon in Maryland although, with enough alcohol, we'd be happy to watch you do Swan Lake with sparklers.

    I'm driving from Cincinnati on Friday morning. Coming back when this Doro guy kicks me out.

    Room for 4 or 5 so whoever wants to ride with me is welcome.

    Edit: Of course I get to approve riders. But I'm serious.
