I am a little confused here, as well. Will the beach burn be "Fun" and will there be enough "Fun" for everybody. It seems at some of these events there is always someone hogging up all the "Fun" and there isn't enough to go around. I am just checking.

Just like any party, the host usually anticipates and provides all the "Fun" that is needed. Of course, it is never a bad idea to bring along some "Fun" with you. As a matter of fact, I know that I am planning on bringing some extra "Fun" as my side dish.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Bro!! So I'll bring some "Fun" you bring some "Fun" and hope that there is plenty of "Fun" for everyone. If you see anybody having too much "Fun" stop them and tell them to share.

Just keep your "fun" in a inconspicuous container.

Hope this doesn't help.

If that question wasn't toned in your normal sarcasm them I think you brought up a good point! Let's have a contest for the best/worst wood tiki 2 feet tall or smaller brought to be burned!
I'll throw in a prize for the best and one for the worst. But they must be hand made by the owner.



Oh GOODY! I'm coming and I'm bringin the Mister's first attempt at carving... he insists on keeping it around the pool and it's SO not tiki- it looks like a poor Eskimo boy's first attempt at totem carving using a wooly mammoth jaw bone! It's right at 2 feet tall and oughta burn up nice and quick- seriously dried out palm- and the added ugly factor-make it highly flammable! Not to mention, I've been soaking it in lighter fluid for a few years and "accidentally" leaving it near the fire pit... but no luck with a conflagration yet.

We'll be the ones in the Family Truckster (That there's a 'recreational vehicle' Clark!) adorned with too many hibiscus stickers. Can't miss us, even if ya wanted to.

Look forward to seeing everyone!

2 feet tall or smaller? Why the height restriction?

The beach patrol will give us a hard time if we burn anything too big! Last time we had to pull a five foot tiki OUT of the fire while it was flaming! But I have a feeling the flames will be massive later into the evening!

Is a two foot limit a restriction defined by the 'beach patrol'? or is this an arbitrary number, nevertheless, I do understand the concerns. If the two foot height IS a strict limit defined by law, is this two feet measured from the base of the fire pit or from the top edge of the rim? I think there is some wiggle room here and we shouldn't unnecessarily squelch things.

So let's not make this a call for tiny two foot Tikis, this is a call for ANY and ALL Tiki contributions. The bigger the better.

So if someone has a taller Tiki they want to burn, bring it. Three feet tall? Absolutely. Four feet tall? Sure.. maybe just lay it down on the fire sideways. Five feet or taller? BRING IT! We can always chop it into smaller pieces before tossing it on the flames.

I'll bring an axe for people to use. If someone can bring a chainsaw, even better.

2 feet is arbitrary...(There is ALWAYS wiggle-room!) The height of the flames will determine whether we get busted or not.... Actually I'm counting on seeing another infamous Bamboo Ben creation go up in flames! (And there's NO WAY it'll be less than 2 feet!) BUT....for the Best/Worst contest...let's keep it close to 2 feet and your own creation.
