    My guess is we won't know until we get there.

    I can say what they had the first year was certainly sufficient.

    My plan is to bring my own head and I would recommend others to do the same.

    Obviously I don't encourage using your own head if it will slow down turnover, though I think the Music Joint stage bands are going to be spaced out enough where this shouldn't be a problem.

    I am sure Odin will let us know........

    I still need to buy my plane tickets and get a hotel.

    One thing I am wondering is when will the show end on Saturday and how late do the trains run?

    Actually I just realized it was a stupid question because no matter what I just have to walk back to my hotel. :)

    Thanks anyway!

    Stupid question most likely, but is there going to be ins and outs like the two previous years?

    Like most people...they hate forums....sadly forums are dying fast. Everyone would rather just post on facebook now.

    Yeah, I get that. tho FB is "social media" that is viewable by the masses and I feel people don't always truly say what's on their mind.
    With a concentrated forum, I feel people feel more comfortable being honest.

    This forum needs a good "Chicago Powerfest" level classic battle!!!!!!!! :)

    Yes...the best thing about forums is battles...no battles here, progpower forum, our local metal forum, etc anymore, primarily due to lower interest overall I guess. No fun.

    no, should have one band less to end at reasonable times. The 1st night, Jag Panzer is scheduled to end earlier than Tygers.

    And you know 1:30 is late for shows, you and I always complain about it ha

    Starting earlier on Saturday would be a better option for me, though I guess the turn out would be pretty low for the first couple bands if it were any earlier.

    also the venue cost goes up as well if it is any earlier. Also as we have seen at this show and many others..long days cause people to come late or leave early.

    Another consideration might be to keep Jasonic out of Trouble.

    Ha, I was a good boy all weekend.

    Only lost it when various heshers felt the need to rage like it was a DRI show in the 80s during Medieval Steel
