    Probably do need to add a day and include a half or full day of finishing/painting techniques, if you went full day then you could include some hands on. Also for the maintenance portion you need someone to hold a video camera up to the machine and tie it into the big screen so every one can see or pre record the presentation with close up video.

    Along with my suggestions I do want to add that it was a great first conference and the staff at carvewright were great. I felt like a member of the family as I was allowed full access to the facilities and saw that the business was a small company that still cares about its quality and its customers. I want to move to houston and get a job there! Too bad my wife would never let me. LOL

    If Connie would have spent more time there instead of shopping..... hahahaha You guys did a great job! Just a few suggestions. Someone mentioned already, having a camera set up to show pictures inside the machines when you guys are pointing to items, or have pictures on powerpoint, and point to them on them on the screen and use a pointer. If you increase the days, you could have software training at a hotel, and invite attendees to bring their own laptops if they have them, the maintenance classes could be taught at the shop and sell the equipment there.
    Second thing, I've taught classes before and having straight tables in line always works better. I understand a lot of facilities don't have that available.
    Maybe make it three or four days. I understand that is a huge undertaking on the staff. I would like more hands on training in the future.
    One more suggestion, and this could be done besides this, set up or have an online course pertaining to the software. Going through each item and showing what is does to your drawing, and also how it affects the project.
    It was great meeting the staff and all the other carvers. Can't wait till the next one.

    Sign me up now for the full week next year Connie,

    My special thanks to yourself, Chris, Joe and all your Staff members who were so very gracious and did such a fine job of making us all feel welcome both at the Conference site and at the plant. It really was a family reunion as much as a Conference so I'll be back at CarveWright Summer Camp next time for sure. I spent a lot of time answering questions on jig and carrier techniques and accessories in general so maybe a session on other than machine items that also make the whole process work. I really benefited from the accessory software classes and Doug Haffner's classes really opened my eyes to where I can go with this unit and new (to me) materials.

    I'm hoping to learn more in the Start U line about seminars and teaching opportunities so I can represent LHR with professional polish and a well focused presentation. It was surprising that so much can be communicated without ever really turning the machine on.

    We will probably need more space next time as the word gets out in the Forum on the good time and learning opportunities everyone enjoyed. I'd easily expect at least 200. Great job by the Hilton management and staff. Now we'll be in a stronger position to negotiate better room rates but it just may require a larger venue. Think rows of tables and even wiring the room with power at the tables for PCs to follow along in agendas and PowerPoint slides (as well as note taking) so you don't have to photocopy everything and the most current version is posted just minutes before the individual presentation. Just thoughts while they are fresh and for what they are worth.
    Thanks again for hosting us for the three days and we'll be back.
    Fair winds,
