I am still here in Cape Cod (reveling in the resignation of Gonzales) stretching out the weekend of the Tiki Tour to a long weekend of fun.

I really must give great huge enormous monstrous kudos to Pappy and Bargoyle for doing all the logistics and fronting money, all the people who donated stuff (at least Beth got a bunch back through the raffle) and all the restaurants for putting up with us.

and a standing ovation for our bus driver for dealing with us, especially all the forced U-turns!

this was a great event and I hope we can keep it going.

Fun beyond words!

Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!! Especially to Bargoyle and pappythesailor!

I can't imagine any other situation or time in my life where I met so many people at once, and almost immediately knew I could consider them friends!

I know that as the months and years stream along, we're going to have a LOT of fun!

M-A-H-A-L-O!!

Mahalo nui loa to Pappy and Bargoyle for all of your hard work. It paid off in spades as we all had a blast and will be eagerly anticipating next year's tour. Thanks also to the folks who donated raffle prizes and swag, it really helped make this fledgling event special. Speaking of special....shout out to best bunch of bus buddies anyone could ask for.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to say thanks to The Granite Tiki and Bargoyle for all the planning and hard work that went into the NETT. I must say that it really really showed. I couldn't see ANY of glitches that Bargoyle mentioned, and the bus being late isn't anyone's fault except for the traffic. I thought it was very smooth and well run.

Everyone was so fun and generous with their stuff, the round robin room crawl, the sponsors, the Waitiki concert, and the participants who donated extra raffle prizes.

I'd also like to give special thanks to MartikiBird and Mr Martikibird (what was his new tiki name? Loogie Something?) for their kindness and generosity and especially for the ride from New Jersey!

I know there were a lot of camera shots going around so I'm looking forward to a lot of pictures!

ANNUAL??

Oh man, that sux to think about waiting so long to do this again.

But the worst thing about a good time is the end, so let us all remember this trip for the upcoming year so that the good times shall never end!

I only mentioned 'Annual' because I know most of our livers couldn't survive monthly tiki tours...and I, for one, do enough damage at home!

Aloooha NETT ohana!

What an incredible weekend! Many, many thanks to Bargoyle and Pappy (and everyone else who pitched in) for organizing an incredible weekend; to all the folks who donated prizes and otherwise supported the Tour; to Primo Kimo for organizing the Friday Motel Mixer; to all the hosts who opened their rooms with much aloha spirit; to Waitiki for a grooviní show; to Hula Cat for the swank stuff; and to all the wonderful Ohana who indulged us in our picture-taking mania (photos to come very soon.)

Awesome. Truly awesome.

I donít think Iíve ever met a group of more fun, generous and genuinely nice folks and we hope to see more of you all. (Our hale is always open to fellow TCers, just PM us to make sure we're around.)
Bargoyle, you were grace under pressure, and Iím sure Iím not alone when I say that I canít wait until next year! Mahalo nui loa!

Martiki-bird (a.k.a Gina), busily going through 300+ photos

You sure you're thinking of the right guy?? I've got about 8 mystery bruises (mostly from attempting to stand on the bus, I assume) that say grace & I dont see eye to eye!!! lol.

Thanks for the compliments, and thanks for the hang & opening your room during the crawl. I expect you to be front & center on the next one!!

Now lets see dem pics!!!

Also, a shout to everyone...I need HI-REZ versions of everyone's pictures. You can compress them & upload to my ftp site, or mail me a cd or whatever. pm me.

Why do I need them???? Why, for an article in TIKI MAGAZINE about the tour, of course!! So, pick out your best photos & get em to me. You may wind up published!!

That would be me - Damian. I only just officially joined.

Thanks to everybody for making it such a fun time! This morning, Martikibird and I were already plotting fun round robin activities for next year, so let's maintain the enthusiasm, people! More East Coast activities, more meeting new people and putting faces to familiar names.

Friday night round robin at the super 8. Who knew the rooms came with tiki bars! Primos room - Wow!Bargoyle approves!

JungleBird's room and the amazing mugs she made for us all!

Receiving our swag bags, buying raffle tix and waiting for the bus

The amazing raffle items, loved by all. Everyone's generosity is amazing!

My view on the bus - with our emcee and host.... Bargoyle!

First stop for the "AA" bus - The Mon Kou

Everyone dressed in their finest! Hula Cat and Tiki Cat look lovely

..and when your finished with that pineapple... peel me a grape!

JungleBird,Kate,Granite Tiki and Leisure master!

We saw sooo many beautiful murals! Waitiki's in da house!

Amazing levitation at the Bali Hai - Eat your heart out Chris Angel!

As the bus pulls away,our waitress blows the conch shell, alerting the locals that it is safe to return to the bar!

Click on this...... it's a movie of the interior of the South Pacific in Newton Mass.
it's a little dark but gives a glimpse into their amazing room and our amazing northeast TCers


Speaking with the owner of the South Seas, he told me how the entire restaurant was once as beautifully crafted but through the recent years the difficulty with maintaining and cleaning the decor, and continue requests from the customers for brighter decor has convinced them to tear out the polynesia and go for the wallpaper and formica. He assured me that they now understand what they have in this back room and are determined to keep it intact! I said, "I'll drink to that!"
