2018 Texas Audio Fall Shindig - Oct 20

Thanks to our tall, lanky, and hairy brother here, I feel I need to get this set in stone sooner than later. I questioned whether or not it would happen this year, but I feel it would be a mistake to not try and make it happen. So, the date is set - October 20, 2018.

For those who haven't been here before, this is kind of like a mini-LSAF meet. I convert my entire house into an audio fun house and Polkies fly/drive in to spend the weekend. There is a LaQuinta at I-20 and Cooper that most tend to stay at. Its in the center of the Parks Mall area, one of the largest retail areas in the nation.

I'll begin setup on Friday evening and break down Sunday morning. The actual event is Saturday and lasts all day and night until the last one leaves.

Post up so I can begin getting a head count. I'll be expanding this event beyond the Polk confines so expect to see some new faces.
