At this risk of taking this thread further off track...

Does the Alameda parade require floats to be sponsored by a local business (rather than just a group of people)? Because Alameda was lousy with tikiphiles well before Forbidden Island arrived on the scene -- heck, that's why Alameda was such an attractive location for Forbidden Island to lay anchor. Why don't you guys just join together and create a float for the Tikiphiles of Alameda? Martin & the gang can sponsor and/or lend assistance if it makes sense for them (it might or it might not), but if you guys want a float, build a dang float! When Cherry Capri was the Queen of the Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena, we led the parade with a motley crew of tikiphiles, and it was terrifically fun.

We'll probably do something next year. At the end of the day, I thought pulling the Ku behind a truck would have been hysterical, and we were going to get some vinyl signs made for the truck and play some cool music, etc. But the old guy is just too tall. Already spoke with Nacho about something new for next year- there just wasn't really time to do something for this year- as you all can imagine, you don't just knock out those ku bars overnight.

YAY!!! I think you've got at least three folks ready to help out whenever you're ready to kick this thing off! Let's not wait until the last minute to start planning, 'cuz we could make this the best darned float in the parade next year with a little time and effort! Yippeee!

All seven or eight of us? Although a great idea, there aren't enough of us on the Island to pull that off. Remember, a bunch, if not most, of the hardcore Forbidden Island regulars hail from nearby abodes in Oakland and San Leandro. The local politics here in Alameda are so nit-picky, that I truly believe that a "Tikiphiles Of Alameda" or "Friends Of Tiki" type group wouldn't fly if most of the people involved weren't from A-Town. Remember, this is more like a midwestern or Jersey Shore type town.

For me, I'd prefer to see a Forbidden Island float. It would be more self explanatory than spending all afternoon/week/month explaining to everyone around here what a "Friends Of Tiki" float and "Tiki" are.

Oh hey, can we maybe start a new thread for this new topic of a float for next year's Alameda 4th of July parade?

Hey folks,
because I was the one that dragged this thread kicking and screaming way way off topic I have started a float thread.
Here is where you'll find it.

Boo Hamburgers!!! I ended up being under the weather - a bit of food poisoning. But not from hamburgers.
