It was all done to make it better. Unlike the planning that james and tom did, bill said i can do it better. With a lack of experience it started to swirl out of control as bill imposed to a degree what he thought. Nothing new there. The real issue for me came when he bought amps and did not gather the parts himself. He left it to be handled. Well, bob was short on some parts, transformers. Not that he did not have more, they were in Washington and he did not know were. So, there were some amps i think that alex got for all his troubles with the chassis perhaps, idk, but alex was to have a few to build and sell. Well , when things came up short, and after the pissing contest ended, alex gave up his personal amps i believe. He gave them to bill because we could not lay our hands on the rest of the order. So, after many emails back and forth, i swore i would correct the problem. But bill would not let go and proceeded to bash the sauters for doing nothing more than accommodating the group and bob. So, by that, in bills eyes, james was the lead. James hated and did not want the job of collecting money. I can say that i watched the tens of thousands handed to bob right before he left to go home on a plane. Because of james collecting the money, he got dumped on beyond reason i thought from bill.
Now tom on the other hand, with no money paid to him, for the love of doing good coordinated much of the talks with watershed and got us the great deals. So now johnny come lately dives into how it can be done better. This all blows up when we as a group took over the rabbit and oo's cabin for the build without a hey bill whatcha think. He came to a very expensive cabin he paid for to be over run by the build. As a group build, for many reason, their cabin best suited the build. So, cabin taken over, his amps come up short, he simply was angry and with reason. The interesting part is bill was very accommodating while there, but then when it was all over, he went on line and proceeded to bust balls for the sake of simply busting balls ( sauters mainly here). I took a real resentment that it all went down the way it did, but again, this was all in a effort to make carverfest better through even more planning via bill. So, i left out a few things like bill paid not once but twice to have those transformers delivered even though i told him not to. Well in the end i got those dollars for the effort. That is a condensed, missing a part or two, maybe a error or two also in what i wrote, but the gist of it all i think.
