You folks need to watch out for this cat. He's as crazy about gear as we are!

I'd like to personally welcome him to the forum because nobody has and I'd also like to add that I have met him and his lovely wife that is tolerant of his audio addiction [bless her heart]. You folks will be meeting him at this year's CF '08 and he has offered some gear to bring that will definitely raise some ears!

Lord help us all! \:D/

Wabbit, you do what you have to do to get here [you and your son] and we'll do what we need to do on our part, K? Bottom line....your ass is comin'! It won't be the same without you!

That said, the first post on this thread has been updated with a plethora of links and information [TXS Engtaz], so please review and let's make this CF the one to remember.

Thank you fellow Carver fans!

1st post updated again with the current contact information. Brandy will be in charge of making all of the reservations this year. [A big shout out to Ramelle for putting up with us last year! \:D/ , her efforts were soooooooo appreciated.]

I'd just like to remind everybody that I will NOT have anything to do with money. Let me repeat...I will NOT have anything to do with the money. Any and all payments, deposits or anything having to do with cabin rentals will be handled by Brandy. She is the one, the only, the exclusive contact for all things concerning cabin reservations and payments for this year's Carverfest.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to point out that Sunday night is on the cabins [in other words, FREE] for those that plan on staying for the entire event. Also, the extra towel and linen service will not be billed to attendees this year. Tim, the owner of the cabins included that free of charge as a "Thank you" to those who are planning on coming [Tim rocks!].

Engtaz, Brandy is the lady in charge of booking all of the reservations for Carverfest. If she isn't available, you can chat with any other person that works there for pricing information or local stuff, but Brandy is the one who knows what's going on and is basically our representative for the event.

Re: Further information for those who are interested.....

For the spouses / family members that aren't gonna be glued to the sweet spot all weekend that nearby is the Biltmore Estate, which I believe is America's largest home. Here's a link to more information about the Estate.........

http://www.romanticasheville.com/Biltmore.html

There is also the Cherokee Casino's, which is North Carolina's version of Las Vegas which is on actual Indian territory, so some of the laws that NC has do not apply at this complex. I don't gamble, but I thought that I would throw it out there for all of you. Here's a link to that.......

http://www.harrahs.com/casinos/harrahs- ... home.shtml

I am still trying to find out a link to the largest model railroad, and I will update whenever I find out, but in the meantime, here are some more links to other area attractions..........

http://www.greatsmokies.com/local.html

And within one to two hours of the cabins.......

If you would like more information about the local scene, here's the information;

Please let this thread know if anybody needs more information about flights, entertainment or whatever. We'll do our best to provide the information ASAP.

And if anyone likes fishin, I'll be bringing my gear and will be happy to have company on the local rivers which have excellent trout fishin.

Skip, you have any idea what an out of state license runs? Does it require a trout stamp?

Gary, Skip's in SC. CF is in NC, so I don't know if he would know. You know?

Here's the NC link for online fishing licenses. http://www.ncwildlife.org/pg01_License/pg1a.asp

I buy licences for SC, GA & NC each year. Non resident NC license is $40 including trout stamp. I think you can get 1 day or 3 day licenses too. On the Cherokee reservation you buy a tribal daily license and I don't think a state license is required. If fishing in the GSMNP either a Tenn or NC license is valid. The Tenn non-resident is $70. I've got plenty of fly rods (if you ask Janet, I've got way too many) if anyone likes that kind of fishin and can bring extras if I know you need one before hand.

Due to recent events it is imperative that if you are planning on attending Carverfest this year, that you make your reservations as soon as possible. Watershed 2 has been taken by a private party (unaffiliated), Watershed 6 is now only available after Thursday only and there are only two other cabins that are currently available [WS's 1 which is not reserved for the event and WS 7 which is reserved for the event].

Folks, we have one week to book WS 1 before it goes back to the general public. As for the Treehouses, one is reserved for Mr. Carver if he wants his own cabin. Another one of the four available is already booked by a Carver member. That only leaves two 1BR cabins left [Treehouses] in the general vicinity of the event. DO NOT DELAY in making a reservation because rooms and cabins are on a first come, first serve basis.

With Bob Carver attending this years Carverfest, I'm quite sure that the # of attendees will be way more than originally anticipated. If you have any questions, PM treitz3 and do not e-mail, please. It is best to keep all communication in one place for ease of organizing.

Just for your knowledge, it is sometimes easier for me to answer cabin questions/availability/ and certain other things via the phone, so please do not be surprised if I request to communicate with some of you over the phone. I can talk a hell of a lot quicker than I type.

Again, please do not delay. If you are planning on coming, the cabin availability may be real tight to non-existent and I can only hold the extra cabins for so long....like one week long.
