This is what Carroll Lam emailed to his Cassie Cult:
“Four score and seven years ago.” Well, actually, it has only been one score and one year ago that I became a Casablanca dealer. What a ride! Four generations of Cassies that revolutionized non-linear video editing for the everyday videographer. I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with thousands of Cassie users during that time. Early Cassie users were so loyal to their machines that they were referred to as “that damn Casablanca cult”. That loyalty continues to today.
We, of course, have Eric Kloor and Jorg Sprave to thank for conceiving and delivering the original Cassie that started this revolution. Fortunately, as they faded away as leaders of revolution, others such as Gary McNally and Chet Davis have stepped up to keep the technology progressing.
With all that said, the time has come for me retire from my dealership. A series of medical problems over the past year have made it impossible for me to give my customers the support they need. Therefore, I will be terminating my dealership at the end of this month. There is a host of fine dealers listed on the www.macrosystem.us website that can serve your continuing needs.
Thank you for your marvelous service Carroll!
If we come to Tucson for a Casablanca Road Show this winter, would you be up for proper goodbyes from that darn Casablanca Cult?
God Bless You,
