Where to begin...Okay let's start with WOW being the word of the day on Saturday! The Rincon Room is an escape in everyway!
I wish I had taken more pictures of the actual Rincon Room so you could get just a small taste of how great it turned out. As stated before, the Fury's and Onatiki really went to extremes to make it as amazing as everyone says it is.
Here are just a few shots snapped of the attendees:
Lil Mini Reverb watches with big, round, red eyes. Much like the rest of us. Hers were flash induced however.. UNLIKE ours.
Whale Rider and Spermy
Say now... that's not yours!
A lovely pic of Cyntiki and BeelzaElvis
Dr. Shocker...looking.. hmmm.. shocked that we caught him unawares
Not toooo much...not tooo little.. They'll never know what hit them...Muahahaha!
Al-ii and GROG... at least I think that's GROG. He was walking upright most of the evening so I can't be sure.
It's almost as if they KNEW I was taking their picture.
Tiki Kate with mugs that AREN"T broken!
JP in a more candid moment measuring Doctor Z. Or maybe he is patting his head. I don't know... it was late and there were many Daytonas...
Our most gracious and generous hosts for the evening, Mr. and Mrs. Bongofury.
So much to see and do. So many gathering places. The bar, the bbq, the pond, sofa... Not to mention the countless hours spent in the kitchen cooking, chatting and sipping some of the finest cocktails! THANK YOU, Whale Rider, Bartendress Extraordinaire.. Daytonas.. My new favorite drink... Actually I think everyones new favorite that day!
Couldn't get to the Reverb Crashes or Keelhauleds. Just ONE of those and I woulda been face down in that infamous pond spot with GROG and Chongolio.
Loved seeing everyone that I've seen before. Met some new people and put a proper face to old names finally. Just cannot say enough about the Rincon Room, the party itself or the fantastic people that attended. Everything was wonderful.
Thanks again Fury's!!
Tonight, we will have a big feast. And then, at the end of the feast, we will climb to the top of the Big Woo, and you will jump in. Okay?

Our first ITD was like a dream. One from which we are still recovering. How can a 10 hour party go by so quickly? Started the day with daytonnas, smooth tequila shooters & margaritas ended with a reverb crash. We had such a great time and felt so welcome at the Rincon Room.
Onatiki, TikiTony and Bongofury have outdone themselves. You would never know the Bongofury's were working up till the very hour of the party. And still had enough energy to have fun and be the most gracious of hosts.
It was so great spending such a gorgeous southern california day in a beautiful tropical paradise with such quality folk. It's so great to see all you guys! (Missed a certain Onatiki & Moki!)
Thanks again for being our 1st! Wish we were still there! Maybe next year, an ITD weekend?
Now some pics.....
Hear no, See no, Speak no

The Glasgow Tiki Shakers were in tiki heaven. Thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Fury for including us in your celebration -- you two rock! We had such a fun time playing in your amazing paradise, meeting new friends and seeing everyone. Great party, great night. Big thanks to Polynesiac for another cool pendant, Tiki Tony for signing our print, all the bartenders and the BigTikiDude for our tasty chicken kebob, yum. TC peeps are party animals - hope to see everyone soon!
