    Not very likely. From the 2013 thread.

    I know it's a ton of work for Grumpy et al to put it on, and the two I've attended were both awesome, but, yeah, unless they were to schedule it for a time significantly later in the year, I don't see how they'd have time to pull it together for April.

    I thank Grumpy for the shows in the past, and I can completely understand why it might be off the radar map for this year.

    Both AKFests I've attended have been a couple of the coolest things I've done audio-wise. Just thinking back to the Salk room a couple of years ago.... WOW!!!!

    I'm guessing that ship has sailed. Too bad, what a blast I had. AXPONA, RMAF or ??? anyone?

    Not a bad idea. Maybe SMAC volunteers can receive discounts on admission, rooms, apparel, etc.

    I'd be happy to be a minion, if it meant making it happen.

    AXPONA will be here in the Chicago area from April 25-27. It's different compared to AKfest but is a few hours' drive or a short flight away, and according to show organizers attendee ticket sales are double last year's so far.

    2014 fest

    A 2014 fest could happen. It seems a fest happens every two years. 2010 and 2012 and maybe this year.

    Someone mentioned to take out Grumpy to lunch and suggest a fest with the SMAC. Now that is a possibility. And don't forget to get Grumpy real drunk so he does not know what he is signing for.:D

    P.S. Get SMAC to up front some money.

    I think that could easily happen, but without a peep from Grumpy, there will be no AK Fest IMHO. Maybe we can recreate some of the magic in the future on our own.
