Everyone that was originally told to do a 30 minute demo is planning on being there for much longer than 30 minutes during the entire run of the event, and none of us really wanted to do it anyway. We started to think about it, discuss it, and it seemed the demos would drastically alter the spirit and format of our usual gatherings, or create some potential problems.
I'll just mention some of the factors that were considered when we decided to switch this to an open multi carver demonstation. If all of us were to do a 30 minute demo, it would be nearly two whole days of demos strung end to end. That is almost the entire scope of the event. Two solid days of back to back demos? We started asking ourselves: Do we all stop carving and be polite and watch the scheduled demo? Or Do we be rude and carve on while our friend shouts over the din of 20 carvers and as many spectators as we can handle.
The original purpose was for the general public to come by, watch what was going on, and then if so inspired, have the resources at hand to give carving a try. So far, no one has objected to this worthy goal. It would be much more advantageous, from these observers point of view, to witness several different artists doing what they do simultaneously, with each of them giving, in some cases, a days long seminar, as opposed to a quick 30 minute demo. People will be encouraged to wander about and freely ask questions of any person working there. There will literally be 20 interactive seminars going on at most times. I can assure you all, there will certainly be more than one going on at ALL times.

It sounds like some of us are still a little unclear about the final change to the Tiki Oasis chop:
We will NOT be doing any prescheduled 30 minute demonstrations at Tiki oasis.

We WILL be doing several demonstrations, all at the same time, all of the time, throughout most of the daytime hours of Tiki Oasis.

Just like all of our chops in the past.

See all of you there.

Now, one more issue to address: The demos were originally conceived as part of a deal that entailed the admission of some selected people to the vending area on Saturday. To our new friends who have asked if they can come down, carve for 30 minutes, and then get into the vending area early on Saturday, let me say this: You bottom feeding mug collecting scumbags are an ass tumor on this fine event, and there truly is no end to the lows you will stoop to to support your habit. Next thing you know, if you do not watch yourselves, you will find yourselves on your knees behind the dumpster in back of the hotel, selling yourselves to feed your mug obsessions and addictions. We will welcome anyone who has an interest in carving, but not you slimy turds who want to come down as a way to get around forking over the dough to stay at the hotel and getting into the vending area before your time! Besides, the people who get there first will all buy an extra one to sell to you on ebay in a while anyway.

Buzzy Out!

Postcards coming soon!

Hiltiki: I said to everyone we were not doing demos and then everyone agreed and said good, we shouldn't do demos then, and that's funny cause that's what I orginally had said, so I said it again in case I didn't say it right, and that's why I had to say it again, because it seemed like some people didn't know what I had said. I hope I said it right this time.

Do I have to say it again?
Buzzy Out!

OK, OK, OK, the demos are out! Look, if you want to do a demo that's fine, if you don't that's fine too. The whole carving village is one big carving demo anyway! (And organizing time at the Oasis is getting really crazy now.)

Buzzy's right. About the demos, that is.

Lets just agree with Buzzy, I'll do whatever he says if he'll go back to putting that Thor comic at the end of his posts instead of the beefcake picture!

Yay for no 30 minute demos! and postcards? I need a POSTER! I think Costco can do 20x30 poster prints. I wonder if anyone would be offended if I had a Buzzy poster at work. Maybe and 8x10 glossy would go over better.
Buzzy - will you sign a picture for me??? Or do you charge $10 like some of those washed up actors at Comic-con?

I 2nd Meiko's "Yay for No 30 minute Demos". I'd much rather just carve. Since I'm such a newbie I was rather panicked about what I could talk about, so I'm perfectly happy luggin' the log I started at the last chop and just finishing it at the Oasis !

I 2nd Babalu's motion of working next to Ray's assistants. They look like they could teach anybody a thing or two.

RAY - can I please have that TikiChick #3's name and email address. Just PM me the details. I have a pendant she can wear, but I need to get all her info first.

Believe it or not, a Buzzy poster may be happening real soon! Our new "Mr. August" is getting pretty popular!
