I would like to say thanks to Frank and Peter for hosting a wonderful event. As much as I enjoyed seeing and listening to all of the gear, the highlight for me was the great conversation and meeting everyone.
Thanks to all for making my first Frankenfest a fantastic experence. I'm looking forward to many more!!

Chuck

Here is Paul, the delihaus, making his grand- better late than never entrance



Jim showing off his cable



And this guy was just about to show me one of his fingers, must have been something I said



And here's a picture of Jim asking me why I am following him around with a camera



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

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

Big thanks to Frank and Peter. This was my first time at one of these shindigs, definitely looking forward to doing it again.

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.

JimB
