How late? That depends on how fun it is.

Actually, the Bali Hai warm-up party is usually more crazed than any other part of the event - people are STOKED, the music is great, and there's a big free parking lot right out front.

There will be 25 carvers involved, many are regulars from our monthly Tiki Chops.


Where the heck was everybody!!! There was maybe ten of us, and we had a great time. Tikis were carved, tikis were sold.
Be there Sunday! Auction at 2:30.

Wow, what a great chop! Got a lot of carving done, got some great ideas from other people, and introduced a huge number of people to the wonders of carving!!
TikiThomas08 made a GREAT tiki(get those pictures up!) and a few other people tried out a chisel as well. Sounds like we might have a HUGE chop next month, I spoke to so many people who are interested in coming to the next chop that I lost count!
Big Thanks to Buzzy for all the logs! It wouldn't have been a chop without him.

Our auctions were a huge success, the Saturday one was a little small but a great start, and Sunday was great!
HUGE Thanks to BOSKO and Tiki Diablo for donating tikis to the raffle! We have some money for our group - Cammo's vote is to get some yummy Phil's BBQ ribs for the next chop which sounds great, lemme know if you have any other ideas.

Now THAT was fun.

Everybody was amazing, but I think Billy Bobaloo stole the show with his constant wisecracks, his one arm chopping style, his constant enthusiastic sales, his extremely decorative wife, and his bottomless-pit capacity for drugs and alcohol.

In other words, he's my new hero.

I saw Buzzy sweat for the very first time, which was weird becase he seemed to magically have the only shade in the entire poolside vending area and sat there taking people's cash all day. He may have simply dabbed water on his forehead to make it LOOK like he was working really hard.

Otto seemed to have more fun than anybody else, except for our Billy Bee. And Otto loved our Carving Village. He was totally into the idea from day one, and his eyes lit up with a crazed glow when I told him we had new converts like Thomas.

Cheeky had the best party and the best drink, no contest.

Cripes, that Thomas guy flew through that log.

4WD did real good. REAL good.

The pool was 9.5 feet in the deep end. Excellent pool. Crazy Al kept chickening out (cluck, cluck!) when I dared him to race me.

Bamboo Ben is CRAZY. Crazy Al is the SANEST man I've ever met.

Mieko made new pendants Saturday night, those are the ones that hit the auction and paid in spades for the pendant materials.

The Sunday auction was a big hit. We netted plenty for ribs and onion rings next time; like Mieko says, thank Bosko and Danny for them.

Tiki-Ray was blushing beet red when we auctioned off his green shields, which is pretty hard to achieve considering some of the photo shoots he's been a part of.

Vegas Lee went home real happy.

I made a big tongue.

Blackstrap Rum goes great with that Shasta Tiki Soda. We have it on good authority that it tasted better than the drinks Beachbum Berry was making next door.

If you rub Kennie's hair you get good luck.

Kate was there chopping 9:30am Friday to the end of the day Sunday, and still managed to teleport herself to the shopping and back like a sped-up cartoon.

Anyway, time for bed.

Hey Thomas,

That tiki is very sweet indeed my friend! Your enthusiasm for carving is also very cool. Welcome to the crew!!

Cammo is right, Billy B was hung over with a busted up arm and still one of the last carvers standing. Rock on BB!!

Oh yeah, Babalu and Buzzy both turned into permanent Tiki guys this weekend. They've been wobbling on the fence for a while...

I saw Buzzy standing in a long line waiting for a Soccertiki Mai Tai, and Babs bought the sweetest hand carved fish hook pendant ever made. Also Babs had a lot of work to do Sunday but showed up all day with a lopsided grin and goofed off poolside instead.

Thank you Buzzy God for your help, affability and logs. You make the other Tiki Guys look they're working too hard at it.

I had such a great time on Saturday at Tiki Oasis! The carving villiage was such a success, and everyone did an awesome job! Thank you so much Cammo and Mieko for our totally cool pendants!! You guys really went all out for us. Here are my pictures from the day's events....




















Let the auction begin!


WOO HOO!!! Buzzy won the auction for the TikiRay business card holder!










Here's one of Buzzy burning his signature into his tiki. (P.S. Love the picture that was posted of it in it's new home!!)




You can also check out my post on Buzzy's thread of his Pin Up signing pictures! Just click here...
