Hmmmm, early Sept might just work for me. I have to pass on the FestEast this year to take Janet back to Oregon to visit the family. Made many points telling her we'd go out there rather than me doing the Fest again this year. It wouldn't be my fault if there just happened to be a Fest at the same time we're in Oregon now, would it? O:)

Hey Rick, I haven't forgotten just been a little busy. I have been in touch with Zaca lake and it is a little flakey (just as you would expect from Socal). The guy who answered the phone took my info and said someone would call me. Been over a week now. I will call back today, Even so I don't know if it will be an adequate location.

To those with concerns about "stealing" the fest from N.C.....it will never happen. That location might as well have been designed for the Fest. Could not be better...and they seem to love us Carverites. I believe the Watershed Carverfest is as good as establihed now.

A supplementary west coast fest is what I have in mind. The real problem here (socal) is finding a venue.

I will keep looking.

I was just looking around and here is some more cabins that popped up. Tell me what you think?


To get to the cabins go to the quick search on the right with the arrival date and departure date. I put in Jan 1st-8th and than the pictures of the cabins will show up and the rates as well.
Between FrankieD and I we have logged in over 12,000 miles going and coming from Carverfest's. Don't let the miles in between play with your mind. Get over it, jump on a plane get to the fest and have a great time !

Hey Tim I'm glad someone else down here is working on it. These cabins look pretty good, similar to NC. The only thing for me is that I was hoping to lure the east coasters out here in winter to enjoy the warm weather. The last time I was in Idlywild in Feb there was a foot of snow on the ground.

Stay on it & I will see what I can come up with. We also might have a better chance if it is somewhere in the middle rather than so far south.

It is a learning experience so we should keep on learning.

Any further progress on a West coast CF?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
