Roy, you are just as much to thank as anyone else, if not more !!!
If it were'nt for you, I'd STILL be in NC trying to gimp all those boxes and speakers into the trailer !!

THANK YOU for all the hard work you put in, making sure everything was running as smooth as it was !!!!!
CarverFest is a great time every year, but you truly made it a "vacation" for me this year. You will always be welcome to bunk with me... even if it means hiding you under the futon !!!
YOU ARE THE MAN of CarverFest 09' in by eyes.

Roy even fixed the AC in my truck on the way up =D> That boy got SKILLz !!!!

I know I had a great time. Even though we were in the "quiet" zone and almost got kicked out it was a great time.

I can't believe how fun Bob can be. He just loves being down there with everyone.
Some cool Carver stuff!

It would have been nice to not be in the "quiet" zone. Next year we are talking about WS9. I think that one would be a better fit.

That's Babbit. The proud owner of Rainwoman and Rainman. He's an Australian Cattle Dog (Red Heeler).

Babbit would like to thank everyone for a great time! Except you Frankie...he's still not sure about you :lol:
He doesn't trust anyone who drives a Prius.

Treitz replenishes his supply of his latest tweek, magic boogers. He swears that if you just wipe them on your amp tubes, they drastically improve bass response and widen the soundstage as they fry.
