Great idea.
But I only have enough amps to blow 21 speakers at a time.

Not any regrets this year, one of the best Carverfests ever! What did I miss? Probably spending more time with my buddies Eddie and Ray, and I always enjoy time with James without a lot of people around but it never seems to happen, really would like to have spent more time with Al and Melody and of course OTD and his clan and never seem to catch up to Bob and Carol( and Ted and Alice!). Greg did get to come up one night and we spent some quality time exploring some good rock music! Glad he had a reprieve! Glad I had one evening with Mark, Harry, and Ray and of course having Rabbit is nearly as good as the icing on Ray's carrot cake. Come to think of it...I miss everyone! Carverfest is more than a group of us...it's ALL OF US!!! To leave out Frankie and Robert or anyone would be wrong. Wish we had more time to socialize but am thankful we had as much time as we did. Looking forward to next year!!!!! =D> =D> =D>
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

Well said Wayne! No matter how much quality time you get, a little more would be even better.

I always feel thankful that it works out at all for me and I get the chance to be there and have the time. It's really given me something to look forward to each fall.

Anytime a day's been challenging, I think forward to the reward of the goofy fun and relaxation and all the food that makes up Carverfest. Old friends and new....it's just a great time! My personal reward for surviving and achieving the fun of the event and the time with friends!

One regret was not seeing Bob Carver working on OTD's amp. That would have been interesting to see him in action. The only other thing I missed was seeing Wayne at the loft--next year. Carol and I had a great time this year. We got to visit with many more people and see and listen to a few more really nice systems this year. Of special note were Eric's and Mark's open baffle speakers. They were both really nice. Thanks to Ed, also for bringing his Amazings this year. They were very impressive. I have AL3's, but that was the first time I had ever seen the big Amazings. Martin also had an interesting set-up with amps and woofers everywhere. Thinking back on CF 2015, is making me hungry for some of Big Al's pizza. Eleven more months.

Ed and Randi's Low country boil (we changed our schedule just to make it and missed it) along with spending more time with the two of them as Susan and I really enjoyed meeting and talking with them. Missing by a few hours meeting Trav,(Damn!!) and losing a whole half day of not being there, with everyone, at the damn hospital having them telling me there was nothing in my brain-so I had nothing to worry about.I told them that to start with!! \:D/

I regret missing the first week.

I used to think the perfect vacation would be to be in a quiet country setting by myself - I realize now, the best vacations are in a quiet country setting where you can turn up the volume with laughter, music and just great fun conversation.

Already working and looking forward to next year.
