Whatever y'all decide, I will be there to help also.

Michael, I think those speakers should cover about anything we could want to do ! Would like to hear those big boys !

NO nailing tent stakes in to the parking lot behind Klipsch, please ! [:|]

Wow. Now there is a good guy for ya. I scream, cuss and raise hell at him the last time we set up a tent and he still offers to help again.

I'm plannin' on bringin' my 10 lb sledge. Maybe my 4 lb hammer too. Better re-epoxy the head in the big un as some dufus messed up gluin' the new handle in place a while back. [^o)] Will Picky be video taping the tent raising?

Ya know Trey, with the possibilty of 10lb sledges flying around ya might want to watch your back. Though nobody'll be messing with y'all the way you toss around them Jub cabs.

Should we all bring our pick up trucks for a caravan to help haul over Michaels speakers? Or are y'all just planning on renting a very large U-Haul?

It's basically the same as last year with tour in the morning, lunch then free time to revist your fave spots on the tour in the afternoon. 8-5

Dinner, town hall and fellowship afterwards will be on site under a big top tent. 6-9.

Trey and I are meeting over lunch to work on the Friday workshops. They should really be a fun addition to the show this year! They will be 5-9 here at the headquarters.

Michael

Pilgrimage 2008 Itinerary

A gentle reader has pointed out that Saturday afternoon will be free REIN, not free reign.

Apologies to any who thought they would be attending a coronation.

From the offical itinerary:

"1:30-5:00 Free reign to visit the listening rooms of your choice or the other displays listed below."

I humbly ask of thee, LOK Lord Of The Party and Road Trip (etc), what are the other displays listed below as I find none listed below?

Thank you my faithful lord.

And it is decreed, that during the free rein time, and the entire Pilgrimage, that we shall not run amuck nor be disrespectful in any way to the Land of Klipsch.
