CarverFest 2017 Cabin Reservations

Post by Toy Maker » Fri Oct 21, 2016 7:45 pm

Based on the past few years, I have set the dates to Sep 6-20. I will call and verify these dates with Watershed tomorrow.

From what I understand, George and Jannis will be moving back to WS-3 this coming year, and since no one else has spoken up yet, I'm going to call DIBBS on WS-1 for the full time this year.

WS11 belongs to Jerry, Niki, Tom and family. Stereo system yet to be determined.

Well, shall I say, stereo system(s)..... \:D/

Let the fun begin!!!

Me and the CS guys will be taking 5 again. I'd like to book for the duration, but I'm guaranteed to take it from the 9th til the 17th.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

So far dont see any problems with the cabins picked, all were in them this year, with the exception of cabin 3 which was not rented so it is up for grabs & george took it!

If you had to ask.....bwaaahahahaha possibly 16 days of the best time ever, some new folks we assimilated and some other we hadn't seen in a while. A good time was has by all.

No George, I just want everyone to realize there is an established protocol for occupancy of the cabins at CarverFest. I think the sooner this is discussed the better off we'll all be and any issues can be ironed out WAAY ahead of time. I want this to continue to be the great event it has grown to be and sorting things like this out ahead of time will help that cause.

Yes! You missed a lot George! About 14 days of fun to be exact. We may never forgive you...as you know! :lol:

The 2017 fest is shaping up to be a good one...full of fun, food (!!) and frivolity! Maybe also a pretty full house... :shock:

So...it needs to be said that the fest was set up from the early days to encourage participation and maximize attendance. Sooooo...some may not have ever known of or read those founding principals. May not have stopped to think, for instance, that if they aren't committing to book for the full fest then they might not wind up where they think they are! :shock:

The point is to get it talked about again, to get everyone aware and to work out the details as best as they can be. The more we can be in front of it, the easier it'll be...and hopefully the more we can get there and the more fun we'll all have.

Reflecting to the beginnings, people were excited just to get together. Grab a room, a couch, heck..a corner if necessary...just for the opportunity to be there! Excited about it and will-make do attitude.

Now after a decade of fests, we may take some of this for granted. We all plan the year on laying in the expense in our budget and PLAN on the fest. We book our vacation time from work and have an expectation of the luxury these cabins have to offer.

We'll it's easy to forget that one of the cornerstones of this is filling up the cabins as much as possible to maximize for the Watershed folks their income....so in turn they fill good about giving as all as good price as possible. Heck, they wanted your business so bad George, you'll ol' buddy even went out and built you special a cabin back in the trees! :^o Probably asked your favorite colors for the rooms didn't he? This all means we really need to do all we can to do this and do this as well as possible.

I know you know all this...but some others may not necessarily...or may not have thought about it for a while.

Those not familar with this whole story of the bookings and the order layed out for them should check the thread "The Pecking Order" for the details.

Of course me and my festbands will be in 10! Although the dates set really mean I can't be there till the 16th or 17th, unless I came early and left on the 12th. Damn, this moving it back sucks for me, but I will take what i can get. Are you packed yet!


UPDATE - looks like I may be able to be there from the 10-20th.....now if my worlds align that is. Have to check with the boys and see if they can handle it
