Official Dates of the Fest are October 5-7, 2007

I am very excited about hosting this 07 event. I am anticipating sometime around the Traditional October Polkfest days we have been accustomed to. So as time gets a bit closer of course more information will be forthcoming.

The fest will be in Brunswick Ga., exit 36B off of I-95, zip is 31523 for those interested in mapping a route. You can e-mail me through the club e-mail icon for more detailed info if you need it. Airports are in Jacksonville Fl. and Savannah Ga., the major carriers fly in and many good fares are available, particularily through Jacksonville Fl. There are many good hotels very close to my home and I will be posting some up in a seperate logistics thread later on. Hotel prices here are quite reasonable.

Now then, those attending can expect the Southern Hospitality Ga. is known for. Lots of good food, drink and plenty of merryment. Anthony will be bringing the sausage, fine potato salad, a Country Boil just to name a few things. Of course All members and their families are invited. I have a good sized home and expect all will fit in just fine.

You can expect at least three different listening room, all on different levels of the house.

Rig #1 will be the Downstairs Woodshed rig, tubed pre/solid state power with several sources and the Amazings as the primary speaker.

Rig #2 will be on the main level, the Reel Time Rig will go Two Channel only, tubed pre with ss power, speakers will be the larger Polk SDA type along with other floor standers.

Rig #3 will be on the top level in a 17x17 bedroom converted for the event, ss and tubed pre, tubed power, with various sources. This rig will be focused on being more intimate with bookshelf and smaller floor standers.

I could also do an HT in another room, maybe with the surround bar if there is interest.

There will likely be a cans rig and at least one outside rig more likely two, I have large long 50' porches on the front and back of the home. Look for the Isonic in one of these rigs.

Most of all, Polkfest is about fellowship with members, its a Party, time to relax and have fun. I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting others who I know by Screen Name. If you have not been able to make one of these, please try to come, it really is amazing to meet all these guys. Polkfest is one of the big things that makes the Club different from typical forums.

Come one, Come all and have a Ball.

    PF in Brunswick? Oh yeah! I'll definetly have to put this on the calender and get down there.

    Ted, just tell me your not downwind of the pulp mill and/or the Hercules plant. I also hope you wait for gnat season to die off before hosting! St. Simmons is a fun place to stay too! Not the nice beach like Jeckyl, but cheaper to stay and more places to grab a beer. I haven't been down that way in quite a few years, but I have fond memories of the visit.

    Born and raised in Marietta.... I'd say it's about time for a homecoming. I imagine I have some ducks to start lining-up.
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    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???

    Early October, staying ahead of the fall industry trade shows and hunting seasons works great for me! I might be conflict free this year! Georgia is a lot easier for me to get to than the east coast for a weekend. Thanks for putting this together. I'm in as of now! Doug.

    I know my school says it's in session on Columbus day but, we are out for a fall break the 16-21, that may help us college kids but not you workers (though you get vacation). Though, I'm really not sure how many colleges even do this.

    I just got off the phone with my dad and it seems we may both be making the trip - staying in a house on Jekyll. So thats tentatively 2 more for your pre-pre-pre roster :)

    And again, as everyone has said, thanks for hosting it this year.

    This would be a homecoming for me. I grew up on St. Simons and we visit friends there that same week every year. It's Fall break for our school in Alabama and we hit the road.

    Is this a one day affair? Details please when available. For anyone who has not been to the Golden Isles, it is a treat for the senses. Historic, beautiful, great restaurants...I can smell the ocean already.

    PS - Not to step on anyone's plans, but if catering a Low Country Boil is in order PM me. My best friend is in the restaurant business.
