Hello cmore and welcome to the Carver Forum. You can feel relieved because you just created the first CF '09 topic.
be a Carverfest '09....and '10.....and 11 and so forth. I have to be honest though, this year's CF will be a hard one to trump. For you Northwest guys, a seed has been planted and we hope to have one out there within about 200 miles of Seattle. It may very well be in Canada, still within 200 miles of Seattle, WA. This is still very early in the planning stages and it may not happen there at all. "Things" have to happen first that's not in my control and only time will tell on that one.
The timing is not good right now to discuss possible alternate locations for other CF's due to the amount of time absorbed in completing / planning this years event. Feel free to discuss anything concerning any future Carverfest here in this thread and the powers that be will review it after CF '08.
Just so you know, the logistics are the hardest thing to get right during the organization of any event such as this. In our case, the biggest obstacle is having enough room and clean power. Ranking in second is sleeping arrangements [NO drinking and driving] and ease of taking the available resources, tying them all together so that the event runs smoothly and we can get down to the enjoyment of listening to the rigs and each others company when we get there.
If all goes as it did last year, the attending members will basically sit down before everybody takes off and discuss whether we want to have another one at the cabins or not. If those that attend would like to come back to the same location, there is nothing to stop us from having more than one event per year. The thing about the cabins is that when we get there, we don't have to worry about things. Last year, we gave that location a test run and it passed, with flying colors might I add. It's just a really nice place to be that happens to accommodate all that our group needs for such an event.
