    Transportation to LHR & Optional Events is not provided by LHR. If you need a ride, do not hesitate to ask! There are plenty of vehicles with extra seats so no one needs to be left behind.

    Most attendees selected a Combination of Workshop Levels, so we are trying to make sure everyone has an opportunity to get the information they need. Therefore, in the mornings, you can choose between Newbie or Carvoholic level workshops. We will then open the dividers for the rest of the days workshops, so everyone can be present. Room capacity for Newbie & Carvoholic workshops will be pretty evenly divided, so arrive early for the workshop that best fits your experience level.


    Show & Tell Hall:

    We will also have a separate location for our Show & Tell Projects, Vendor Tables, and CarveWright Store. Bring your projects along with a written description of how it was created or any other special information you wish to share. Don't forget to add your name & forum name, so we know who to pat on the back!

    Be sure to thank our Sponsors for helping us with this event!

    Special Conference Pricing will be available for attendees and some merchandise will be on hand.

    This agenda is based on the current number of attendees, plus a few more. If we get a significant increase in attendees, we may need to expand into a third section and make amendments to this agenda to keep class sizes reasonable.

    I guess for me the thing to do is wait till at least 20 folks have actually signed up. I see that there is NO refund if the show is cancelled by LHR. The $200 will be credited to you in the LHR account and not credited back to your credit card company. I didn't really like that, but guess that is the way it is now a days.

    Is there a way to tell how many people have signed up?

    I guess I'm kinda hesitant right now as well. I've got the funds to go, but I don't want to pay it all now and it cancels for some reason and all I get is a store credit instead of a full refund. I understand that there may be costs in trying to set it all up, but I have no control over that. I just really expected to get a full refund especially if it's no fault of mine for not attending. That may be why some people are just waiting it out. Even if 100 people signed up right now, that's 20k and to have all that as Store Credit? WoW... that's alot of store credit. Just sayin'.......

    Hello All,

    The cancellation/ store credit policy originally posted regarding if the vendor (LHR) canceled was incorrect! I saw that and it puzzled me too, so I gave a quick call to LHR's Marketing Manager (Joe L.) to inquire about it. Turns out it was a copy/paste from another conference policy and the vendor cancellation policy wording was NOT intended by LHR at all.

    In other words, in the very unlikely event LHR had to cancel either due to an act of God, or lack of sign-up, or whatever, anyone who has signed up and paid in advance will receive a FULL REFUND (not a store credit). I hope this sets the record straight. Just an aside, when I first mentioned this to the Marketing Manager, he was caught totally by surprise too, and regarding the "store credit" issue stated, "That doesn't make sense". He made the correction while we were still on the phone together! Please see the following link to read the corrected wording:

    I anticipate a great turn out and am really looking forward to meeting as many "Carvaholics" as possible at this major event for CarveWright Users! The weather is going to be beautiful that time of year, so I'm told. Lots of neat things to do in the area, plus there will be a "field trip" opportunity to LHR Headquarters, which should be kind of fun too!

    Thanks for finding out Michael. I sure did not think that was a correct policy, but ya never know. Glad to get that straighten out. I kept trying to find this post for an update but was having a hard time locating it.
