    I knew I should just have skipped reading this. It just makes me feel worse about not being able to make it this year.

    You're not going to believe this, but they were in a couple of dumpsters out back. I'm serious. I'll bet they timed this to coincide with 'new mattress day' in the hotel. I should have gotten a photo.

    Of all the pictures in that blog, I can only remember the first one: All of a sudden the rest of them really didn't seem to matter anymore. Is that what they call ADD?:scratch2:

    Thanks for sharing!

    Regards,

    I just hope they didn't charge AK for removing the mattresses, seeing as they were apparently going to do it anyway.

    What a GREAT write up!

    Definately the finest Fest I have been to! Great group of people, wonderful, plentiful, diverse systems and fun to boot. Thanks to you wigwam and all of the others who participated, planned, or attended, the whole thing was synergy:thmbsp: . I am not sure I can fit everything back into my house, but I will try!

    As always, a pleasure and a delight to read your delectable scribbles.

    You seem to push that pencil, and the words come out nicely.

    A nice read indeed!

    Great writeup and great photos!

    That first shot is Jennifer, Grumpy's daughter, also known as the finest ticket-seller in all of audio. The average attendee was unable to say "no"... or anything coherent.

    I had a great time, met a bunch of great people, and am really looking forward to next year.

    Special thanks to Dave, Nancy, Ernie, and Linda for a fantastic job, and thanks to RichPA for 5 hours of switching DACs!

    Great job Wiggy! You need to find a magazine to write for, or they need to find you. Thanks for the kind words, and also for the fine pictures. I was a total dope and forgot to take any pictures myself! Having too much fun, I guess.
