Cabin 5 peoples were fantastic. We took over their cabin and they were nothing but great host. Gary's system was the bomb. OO was great to meet and talk to. Mike was indispensable host and tube builder trainer. Martin thank you for your assistance also. Carverfest made a mess of their cabin with the Tube amp build.
Thanks you very much.

Thanks Martin. Super individual. Just met him and he hands me the keys to his Beemer for Bob C. and I to use.

Al (aka Frenchguy) and his lovely wife were sitting across from me during the amp build. Not positive with some of these handles, but I believe Al is Frenchguy. The two of them did a great job on their amp, by the way.

Without the generosity of the other Cabin 5 guys, Carverfest would have been impossible for me. In addition to all the good deeds that they did that were really visible, they did way more that they would probably never even mention.
Bill, in particular, takes generosity to a new level. It's clear that he put a massive amount of time and planning (and money) into thinking about and getting what everyone else would need to be comfortable at the fest. And when things didn't go as he had planned, he just went with the flow and didn't say a word about it, even though he probably missed out on some things I can tell he was probably really looking forward to. Oh, and I accidentally stole his flashlight. Doh!
