Itinerary...

Post by treitz3 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 6:47 pm

Well, Saturday after lunch [1:00pm?] will be the cable swap.

All day Friday will be the tube amp build, followed by a "party" at WS5.

I'm thinkin' Thursday [1:00-completed] will be the official "test" between the original and copy.

Sometime Wednesday [1:00pm?] will be the soldering class.

I believe this is all we have planned so far...anybody else know if I forgot something?

Friday Night....

Post by treitz3 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:16 pm

Bill, Gary and the gang at WS5....

Since you guys have planned a party on Friday night, have you given any thought to hosting and cooking that night's dinner? If not, we need to make some plans and figure out who/what/where/why/when and all that jazz. LMK, please.

Good stuff.
In the day Marantz and AR speakers were hot shit.
I never heard the Dynaco.

I don't know much, but I know that if sounds good today (or yesterday) it always will.

I look forward to hearing those. \:D/ \:D/

Are you serious or are you joking, Bill? We need to make one up anyway as this year we will have an actual itinerary so we all don't run around like a bunch of chickens with our head cut off. If you would like to take the helm on this project, your help would be appreciated. Just let me know one way or the other, please.

I like the idea of setting a night for each cabin. We really need to make this happen!

As for who will have the best sysytem, that is highly subjective and really not the point of Carverfest.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Re: Itinerary...

Tom, we are working out the schedule for folks to do the "each system tour" as we speak behind the scenes. We've almost got it solidified but their are other things that keep changing the schedules for everybody's rig. Here's one example...

I believe this is all we have planned so far...anybody else know if I forgot something?
This year, we will be doing another Q & A session with Bob. We have planned this for Saturday, as most of the folks who are attending will be there that day. So, that said...here's the newest itinerary ["each system tour"] excluded.

Wednesday [10:00AM] will be the soldering class. **Subject to change to Thursday night @8:00PM.

Thursday [2:00PM-completed] will be the official "test" between the original and copy.

All day Friday, starting at 10:00AM will be the tube amp build, followed by a "party" at WS5.

Saturday at 10:00AM will be the Q & A session with Bob, followed by the cable swap workshop.


There are three times that folks will have to remember this year. 9:00, 2:00 and 6:00. I'll fill you all in later as to what each time represents.
