Carerfest etiquette....

While we all can appreciate an audio get together, such as Carverfest, this thread is for the discussion of the etiquette expected by all attending members. These are not rules, no fine will be placed upon you and you will not be shot if what is expected of you does not happen. That said, there is nothing preventing anybody from throwing someone off the side of the mountain if common courtesy and proper etiquette are not adhered to while at the event.

What will be discussed in this thread will eventually be condensed, put into nice words and posted in the "Carverfest Reference" locked forum so that what's expected can be reviewed quickly by anyone prior to attending. While there has been no real issues at the event, some things put forth before everybody gets there will not only make it a more pleasurable experience for those that attend, it will also help those that helped to make this event what it is.

Please refrain from personal attacks, putting someone on the spot or pointing fingers at anybody. That is not the point of this thread. Other than that, any and all input is welcome....

A few things that have been discussed so far;

No setting of drinks on ANY stereo equipment. Preferably nowhere close to it [within a 3' radius, preferably], as shit can happen.

ASK before touching anybody's rig or vinyl, CD's, etc.

If someone posts signs on their equipment about what to do or NOT do; HEED THEM.

DO NOT move or alter anybody's gear period. If you think it will sound better by changing something, ask first.

Treat others better than you would want to be treated.

Political and/or religious discussions should be avoided at all costs.

If you see something that needs to be done for the benefit of greater good? Offer a helping hand. You don't need to ask to help out.

Proper disposal of cigars/cigarette butts. Don't be "that guy". Tread lightly or you can throw them at will once you hit the bottom of the mountain. If you are caught doing this, you will not be invited back to Carverfest, period. That clear enough for you? BTW, there have been no violations of this so far in the years we have held Carverfest.

Meals are provided but service is not. Please clean up after yourself at all times, especially after eating. We are not your personal maids.

Lend a helping hand if one of the chef's request it. <<<< HUGE help!!!

Be like Roy [engtaz]. 8) =D>

A friendly reminder that this is an audio event before anything. While I know that this is a vacation for many and that drinking will no doubt be involved [myself included], we respectfully ask that you refrain from drinking in gross excess. Many of you have read that last year, Bob got turned off. Not so much by the drinking itself but by the folks that showed up in Bob's [and others] presence so drunk that they couldn't carry on an intelligent conversation. Especially when this happened at 9:00 in the morning. Getting smashed is par for the course for some of us and casual drinking is par for others, then we have the folks that do not drink at all. Carverfest is supposed to be a fun event for ALL that attend, so please be respectful of ALL those who are in your surroundings. Your cooperation is appreciated by no one more than our beloved, Mr. Bob Carver.

As you said, Tom..there should be no food or drinks within 3' of ANYONE's equipment.

Re: Carerfest etiquette....

Tom,

I know it is a touchy subject, but you might want to include your thoughts on alcohol consumption as it relates to not wanting anyone to show up sh...t faced around Bob, etc. I know it was touched on before months ago, but maybe a soft re-iteration in this new post.
To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

The excessive drinking...

Don, thank you for your input. This is a very important subject for us. We have provided incentives to not stay up so dog-gone late and we have provided not only breakfast but a dinner as well this year to make sure that folks at least have something in their belly before going on the "liquid diet" for the day. While this may not stop all the excessive drinking, it should help to curb it a bit. I, for one, know that Bob will be MOST appreciative of the efforts made by all concerning this.

Thanks again for your input!

Last year signs may as well have been written in Swahili, they were ignored anyway. Don't be surprised if they're ignored again. Some of my gear was damaged because some individuals have no regard for other attendees property. Other than one piece that needs repair, my gear is staying home.

This thread has been soft edited...

Ray, what happened to your gear last year? This is the first I have heard of it. :-s

Whatever it was, I'm sorry to hear of such a thing.....

ASK before touching anybody's rig or vinyl, CD's, etc.


May I suggest changing that to NEVER touch anybody's rig, etc. Period.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
