    Pretty cool looking.

    I’m hopeful “security” will not be necessary this year. I’m exploring other avenues to keep track of attendees. Anyone that pays the registration fee is welcome to attend. Why would we limit attendance? It’s important that we continue to introduce the younger generation to this event, otherwise it will die a slow death.

    Klipsch’s financial contribution basically covers the rental of Rodney’s for the duration of the event, including the grounds, building and facilities. It also covers most of the cost of the meals we are served while there, as well as clean up etc. This amount fluctuates based on attendance. Our contributions cover the employee luncheon, desserts and incidentals. Additionally our contributions cover any overage in attendance. Im not certain while y’all feel it’s a corporate event/social media etc. Last year was a little different because of the Museum Transfer Ceremony, so I can see why that might be a concern. Generally speaking Klipsch feels this is a gathering for their fans. An opportunity to showcase new products produced in Hope, AR and generally a huge party with their fans. Yes, this number has grown exponentially and will probably continue to grow.

    In years past Klipsch actually quit funding the Pilgrimage entirely because of lack of interest. That secondary grass roots effort three years ago of the original thirteen has increased attendance by anything we ever imagined. That effort also resulted in the Employee Appreciation Luncheon coming to fruition. The growth in attendance is remarkable and we want to continue to encourage participation. Klipsch does not dictate what we do or when we do it, in exchange for their contribution. They simply asked me to schedule it when they could attend if at all possible. All other aspects of the event are at our discretion. If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve the event please feel free to share your ideas. We are doing our best to include everyone. The PWK fan base is huge and interest in this event has once again taken off If any of you are interested in taking the organization of this event over I will gladly share all the previous years’ contact information with you and will assist in any way I can.

    Union rules play a big role in what corporate can and can not do.

    In addition to corporate making a significant monetary contribution they did each pay $50.

    The release was for media purposes the first year. No releases were required last year.

    This event is still forum member/fan directed. Klipsch corporate has come to love the Pilgrimage as much as we do. I’ve heard several of them say they had no idea what it was about and that they will never miss another Pilgrimage. Even though they have cut our budget this year their financial contribution to the event continues to be significant. Without their monetary support our contributions would be drastically increased.

    No sir. It’s still a forum led event.

    Klipsch corporate was booked all through April. First week of May didn’t work for Kevin with outdoor system. Second weekend of May is Mother’s Day!

    There are still some cool evenings in May. We shall see.

    He’s doing ok. “Taking it easy” is a difficult task for Rodney. That’s the real struggle.
