Glad to hear you got slipped into a Treehouse Bob!

It's sure good to see some of the others getting occupied.

Still waiting to hear anything new on Cabin 2 - 3 or even 4. (kidding 'bout 4!) 11 and 12 remain uncommented on too, is there hope? 8-[

Still 2 of the Treehouses open if not booked now by an outside party. Sure be good to hear of more bookings as we close in on the best vacation on the planet!!!

Rumors flying around the interweb today....

Rumor has it that 12 is booked (UNCONFIRMED here) and additionally that someone may have scooped up 11 to some degree (UNCONFIRMED).

So....with nothing else to go on, ....that'd leave for CF attendee's only possibly Cabin #2 and Cabin #3 open in the cabins list. And perhaps, if some outside party hasn't butted in, there could be two of the Treehouses in play yet. So as we approach packing time, the venue is starting to fill up!

HOWEVER....other opportunities may exist! So interested parties could still have several ways to join the greatest, coolest, most fun, fabulous eatin's, party/vacation/time in the mountains get-away ever conceived! This could be from using a couch, a bedroom in the off days from others previously committed, to snagging something from Watershed listed above! Remember, the CarverFest prices are specially discounted. This is from our history (mostly good history) with them, the high booking count the event achieves each year and the fact that dammit, we're just a nice bunch a folk! Folk that are respectful of other guests and the facilities....right???

Remember, the person signed off originally on a cabin is responsible to Watershed for the use of the facilities. This goes all the way up to if it burns down! (Partly happened to somebody else nothing to do with CF just a few years ago). They've charged people, rightfully, for damage to pool tables, moving pool tables causing them to have to be professionally reset, to pets and missing kitchen utensils. They ask (maybe that's not strong enough term), ok expect, that all furniture be restored to the original position when you leave! If you have plans on moving stuff around, like to accommodate a perfectly layed out stereo acoustic situation, then take a picture with your phonebefore you touch anything! Let's give the Watershed people a pleasant experience from CF too!!! This really matters! Let's not create a September long headache for them! The better we do, the better we get on pricing!!! Please remember that!

Now let's get to making all the final plans.....

Hi Mark. I do not know where the disconnect was but Cabin 11 is PIF and Niki, Jerry, Kimmie, Aiden and I will all be staying there throughout the week/weekends at various times. Niki and i will be there the entire time until we pack up and split on Sunday/Monday morning, posssibly.

Lightman1 (Russ) *may* be making an apperance but based on his track record, job and the work that needs to be done in TX? Eh, I am not counting on it.

Sorry all. Got a new job this year that has had me swamped. I haven't been able to devote the time I normally do to communications with regards to CF. Shit happens.

Look forward to seeing everyone and I will have my entire system on location for the LAST time. From this year's CF moving forward? If you want to hear my rig? Yo' ass gonna have to travel. I'll have the usual treats.....

Thanks for clarifying. So this will make Ray the "grandfather" of CF? If memory serves, he will be the one and only person who has made it to every single CF held.

Dave not coming for health reasons or what? Is he okay?
