Depending on the weather, I should be there Friday night. I'll be staying at the Hampton Inn on Rt. 202, in King of Prussia. It's about a three mile drive to the convention center. http://hamptoninn.hilton.com/en/hp/hotels/...ctyhocn=PHLKPHX

Annabelle and I have reservations at the King of Prussia Hampton Inn on Rt. 202. We should be rolling into the hotel Friday, about 6:30 PM, after I pick her up at the Allentown Airport.

If anyone else is coming to the fest, let us know and we will figure out a place and time to meet or just simply stay at the Hampton and we can all have breakfast in the morning and party in the evening.

Actually Egan told me he'd buy the beer for everyone that showed up in their Celtic Radio t-shirts!

He's a very rich man so let him pay...it makes him happy to do for others!

Looks like we will be the only ones again.

Guess we get to have our pictures taken with all the bands and get all their autographs and hang out with them after the fest.


Now, I just have to dig out a few bottles of wine to bring along.
