    I found this man in a dark hall way, at my age I should know better than to go into dark hallways :zoom:

    Hi Steph
    I got there around noontime and had to leave around 4:30, if I don't get home to give the dog's their dinner they are not happy. And if they are not happy they will do something that will make me unhappy and none of us want me unhappy LOL

    And lets not gloss over the fact that there were no Girl Scout cookies, we were told there would be Girl Scout cookies :grumpy:

    I still wanna know what it is - it's not in my mental database; it looks desireable :)

    I think a most excellent time was had by one and all!
    Frank, Peter and I estimated that we had 50 attendees which I think makes this the best attended independent GTG in the Audiokarma extended family.

    I think the best part is how everyone gets along together and how everyone is eager to help out - be it in food prep, helping others to load and unload their treasures, clean up or whatever. All-in-all a most cohesive group, all eager to sample the differing views, likes and dislikes.

    For the next event we'll likely have a cookout over at Frank's chateau in the early summer and then probably another larger event like this one in October.

    Our gift to Frank and Peter was appreciated and the balance will be donated to AK.

    I'd like to say as the gift funds collector just what a fabulous group of people you all are. Usually you have to chase people for funds they've promised, not get your inbox stuffed with paypals and have hands stuff money in your pockets. Yeh, that was the fun part delihaus!

    I'd like to give a special shout out to a few guys who donated money for the fest even though they weren't coming, couldn't possibly come or couldn't make it this time.

    And thank you for coming Chuck. It's always wonderful to see new faces.
    This is a fantastic group of people, and it is they who make it all work.

    I agree with you, as much as the gear and the love of music brings us together, it's the people who really matter.There are none better than this bunch.



    Frank
