I believe those are Skips platinums, my AL-IIIs, and the Rays original amazings.

Dire Straits was playing.

That looks like your buddy from Knoxville on the deck. I don't remember his name.

Somehow, I knew you'd answer and know it all Gary!! I'd suspect your right on all counts!

That's Lawrence.

Know one knew that first year, how it'd go...at all. Let alone how it would grow and even be able to get Bob there! I'd don't think anyone would have believed that possible. Who'd have thought we could take over the whole place. Who would have guess how much fun everyone would have?

Fun stuff. I'd love to see some pictures from others that haven't ever made it onto the forum before.

Carverfest '08. The first year Bob was there. What a miracle to get hooked up and get him there. We all found out, he's just like us! In that he loves music, to play with equipment and talk about all it more!

George tests out the viability of using a pair of Amazings as headphones...all while not messing up the soundstage for everyone else! Typical thoughtful George!

Or maybe he thought if he held real still, no one would see him there! 8)

One guy that touched the volume knob on someone else's equipment that year, and left soon after...or was never seen again...shortly after this moment in time....

Never did know how James and Ray knew to look for him before anybody else knew he was missing. :-"

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Yep, me too. Believe I took the picture. Kingman put on a feast that year. Eddie also had his famous K-Bob's which were grilled to perfection.
