    You haven't truly done an AK Fest, unless you did one at the Howard Johnson. Those are memories I will never forget. :)

    I would love to attend an AK Fest--never had the opportunity, but read the threads and reviews and sounds like a blast! I know what a major hassle (read--lots of work) that it is to do even a local event, much less addressing an international audience. I think a "fatal flaw" of AK Fest was that the same people were burdened with the bulk of the work and that it did not "move" to different areas of the country, making it more accessible to the geographically diverse members of the AK community. I do go to conventions/trade shows pretty much every year, but they "rotate" locations--I'll go to one within reasonable distance, but being from NW PA, I am not paying to fly to LA for the weekend--just not in the budget. And maybe if the event does "move" from year to year, some others (more local) will "step up to the plate" and reduce the "load" on the handful that have been relied upon in the past.

    A great time? Without me? That is hardly possible!

    ... ;)

    Kidding aside, I wish that I would have joined one of these AK fests!
