I must send out a personal thank you to Grumpy for all his hard work setting up AKFest04. I believe you will all agree that it was a resounding success. A very big thank you for all the members that attended. Without you there would not have been an AKFest or Audiokarma.org. As I said at the meet, you are Audiokarma and I'm glad I'm a part of this group of people. I had a fantastic time and while tired, it was all worth it. It was nice to finally meet so many of you and put a face to a name. Then there was the gear which was fabulous. Thanks to all the vendors that took the time and effort haul gear out for us to enjoy. I would be remiss if I didn't single out BrianB of Venus Hi-Fi His selfless dedication to this board and it's members is truly remarkable. If you didn't know, Brian did not make it to the hotel until 2AM and didn't finish setting up until 6am. Yet, with only 3 hours of sleep had one of the best rooms at the event. His smiling face and enthusiasm were always present. THANK YOU BRIAN.
