To answer your question.....

Post by treitz3 » Mon Apr 26, 2010 5:42 pm

Kingman, it was a particular photo taken of Skip in WS11. It was early in the morning and he was all kinds of hunchbacked, messy hair, hungover, the whole nine yards. When you looked at the photo, there was NO mistaking that he was a Sasquatch. The night before, under a full moon and a couple of planets aligning just right, Sasquatch transformed.

The world has not been the same ever since.

Now for the next trivia question......Who "officially" declared him Sasquatch later that same day?

Next question, who was the first person to meet Mr. Bob Carver on site at Carverfest?

Don't answer this if you were the person..... :wink:

Nope. I met him at CF after he had been there for about 30 or so minutes. I got a call from Bob for the first time while driving down 485 toward home. He was stuck at the Charlotte airport. What a great pleasure it was to receive a phone call from the man himself, even though it wasn't under the best of circumstances for him.

Oh my, I can't believe you don't remember. You were there with me when we found out. {hint} He helped him and Margie get the car up the hill.....

He walked in with Bob at your cabin when we finally met him....

Wasn't it the someone who had to get him unstuck on the way up the hill. Working from memory here, wasn't there.
