Secondly, this is an audio event and not a 24/7 party. There are folks that attend that wonder where everybody is at 9:00 in the morning. In an effort to tweak things a bit, we are planning a surprise for those who attend that will give incentive to not stay out 'till o'5dark thirty in da' morning. More to come on that later but for now? We'll make sure that this is not a drunkfest. We are better than that. In no way am I saying that this is a alcohol free event, I'm just saying that this is an audio event first and foremost. We all appreciate Bob's attendance and we would like to keep it that way.
Thirdly, a scheduled itinerary will happen everyday. For example, for those that have never heard a cable make a difference? It will happen at Cabin "X" at "X" time. Those that would like to attend the premier of Bob's new concept speaker? You guessed it, it will happen at Cabin"X" at "X" time. Most of this will happen on the final weekend starting Thursday, depending on how many folks show up and how many "workshops/demos/evaluations" we have lined up for the event.
WS11 will have enough tables to house everybody for breakfast and dinner. This will help to organize things better and make community announcements as to the latest of the happenings or developments at Carverfest. We will have 3 grills [and possibly a professional smoker that can cook two full pigs...TBD] and three dining room tables to house everybody comfortably.
We have assembled a team of chefs that will start planning, organizing and implementing the breakfasts and dinners behind the scenes starting sometime in February or so. That way, we are well ahead of the curve [and the planning of an event that has grown beyond the wildest dreams of many] and we can go on without so much as even a hiccup. This year when we say we are eating at 6:00PM, we will.
Not everybody will like what the tweaks are. Not everybody will like the body of this post. Personally? I don't give a damn. This is the way it is and the way it will be if you would like to join us at Carverfest '11. I hope I have made myself clear.
That said, we are making tweaks for us as a group and we are tweaking the cabins as well. There is a thread behind the scenes that is giving attendees a chance to voice what things need to be tweaked by the cabins to make everybody's stay a more memorable/enjoyable one. There's nothing major to be tweaked, just like the aforementioned, just a little bit of tweaking to achieve the best end result.
