    Not sure if there will be one in 2014. Grumpy has a lot on his plate and a fest takes a huge amount of his time to set up, let alone money outlay. Remember, if there is one and there are few room takers, Grumpy still has to pay. Also there is a huge deposit, etc. AND since he OWNS AK, he is responsible. He is the one to sign the contracts, etc. It is a big deal....

    Would you gents be willing to take a room and set it up as it might cost 300 bucks for the weekend? If there is one, I doubt there would be any exhibitors but members.

    Not me, Grumpy. But, as I said, if there is one he will need MEMBERS TO STEP UP AND ACTUALLY TAKE THE ROOMS.

    We shall see but it doesn't look good.

    Do we need a poll or something to see how many member would actually be willing to pony up for rooms now?

    Well I got spanked pretty soundly for beakin off last time around so while I will wholehearted support a Fest financially and yes, even emotionally, I'm going to shut up from further comment. Just count me in.

    Been there done that, made some suggestions after the first fest to ensure it would continue annually and distribute the load..

    That said, I've had a room at every fest and will if there is another..

    The last time I had a room was, I think 2007 or whatever the last year at the old Ho Jo's was. I would absolutely pony up for another room though, it was a real blast. Besides I've got lots more stuff to bring!

    Will there be an akfest 2014? Hopefully, it will occur before AXPONA in Chicago.
    I will be there again, hanging out with you and Dave and his Altecs.

    I have never hosted a room but will seriously consider getting one to support the fest. Now if only I can figure out what system to bring....

    I live in SE Michigan near the past show locations and would be willing to help out, if there is a 2014 show.
