What Carverfest means to me?
Is all the friends I get to see at Carverfest that I only get to talk to on the phone for the year. Also to remember our fallen friends and the people that can't get to Carverfest for other reasons! I ask you people to post some pictures from past Carverfests that have these people in them! I have two pictures of a fallen four legged friend that I used to enjoy seeing every year too!

Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

Where are the pictures of the speaker shotput competition? I heard only one competitor was brave enough to volunteer but it was the talk of the town for the next few years...

There are so many great moments at Carverfest each year! Great mornings, great nights, awesome food...and nutty people...

Image

The animals are really somethin' too. We've had years where we had all kinds of little kitties outside, some absolutely great dogs bring their owners, and from time to time, some wildlife too...

Image

But don't kid yourself, some big deals go down at the fest too. Sometimes, you just don't even want to know what it's all about or what's in those jars....

Image

Now and again, we enjoy some audio too! Hard to imagine with all that goes on that could be true, but it is! Equipment not only gets used, but built and repaired too!
Image

Then again, sometimes we don't even know what's being built...

Image

Soon...we return... O:)
I was there "At the Fest!" Hope you were too!

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