Um Bill, I guess we're having some Musubi! lol!

I have no idea what I'm doing as a Chop organizer so if you guys usually potluch that's easiest. Please know my stove is on the fritz and only my gas range is working till repaired.

Should we start a list of what people will be bringing?

There are plenty quaint resturants and coffeehouses just steps away and, heck, The Atoll is just up the lagoon @ the Catamaran if anybody requires a 5-star meal!

Good things to bring in addition to your wood and steel:

A drop cloth for the grass
A Burro
A wide brimmed hat & sunscreen
A folding beach chair
A cooler
A snorkle & goggles
A desire to get wet and clothing that allows same
(my buddy & owner of Surfari Surf School may stop
by if anybody wants to try some old timey stand up
paddling to cool off!
Hodaddy Lagoon is 69 degrees today!)

Also any small extra logs the wood wealthy might spare.
(Novices will drop by and I'd love to be encouraging
and instructional. It always feels so good turning
someone new onto our hobby! Like Johnny Appleseed!)

Hey guys anything else I should be doing gimme a kick in the ass.

Hank, I have a couple chunks of wood for ya, one teak, one maple, and two mahagony. Sharpen up your knife!

Thanks for the water temp. I was wondering if the bay water was going to be warmer than the ocean side, but I guess it's about the same.

What's standup paddling? Like a gondola?

Of all the Sundays in the world you had to pick the only one I can't make.
Your place looks amazing, hopefully next time.

I'd like to try to make this one, will a TV with football be readily available for all to see? (I'm a junkie that way!)

TikiThomas - Was It something I said?

Bill - Am I supposed to sharpen these dang things? Oh, Thanks for the donation! Yeah the water's nice right now. Ricky sez the Ocean's already dropped to wetsuit temps but the bay is board shorty goodness.

This is traditional stand-up. Some cats do this on HUGE waves!


Hill - Of all the gin joints in all the... hmmm yeah, if this remains a mellow carving picnic and not a toga party I expect I might wanna do it again someday!

TBird - Consider this your first Football intervention! No TV. You can Carve a Football if you must and if you start to freak out when the you hear the neighborhood cheering might let you walk around the corner to
GUAVA BEACH and check the scores for us! lol!

I just got back from walking the hounds. A neighbor just cut some euk limbs. If anyone is desperate, Ill go get the big pieces. Maybe Tiki Trav could carve something out of them before he sails off? Is euk carve worthy? Or does it just stink?

Erik-
Euk for Eucalyptus?

Eucalyptus is a great wood for carving, but it has a habit of splitting after it dries out. If the ones you've got are fresh from the tree, there's a 50/50 chance that they will be usable. Give them a few weeks to dry out and time will be the judge and jury.

Ha! Euk=Eukanuba. I meant the euk with the "C" not the "K".

Thanks Dave, I'll toss some of the euc in Mom's yard and let it dry. It is too wet for this chop.

I've gotten PMs from Ohana echoing Sunday as a bad time for anything other than football! I was hoping to build a sand tiki with Augie, but... Like Father Like Son! lol!


Fortunately there's always a tiki craft event just around the corner so the All-American pastimes of Tiki Carving & TV Football may be forever balanced.

Seriously. Thank you for the messages and PMs of interest and support for this particular event. There's a cool event coming up at Billy's and I've heard some chatter about a Halloween Hack, so you never have to wait very long to participate in a distinctive San Diego Tiki event...


Very exciting! Looks like the rouges gallery includes...

Tiki-Kate
4WDtiki
NoNaMe
Meiko
CheekyGirl
Buzzard
Bowana
PokoloLolita
T Birdman (you can do it!)
JabTiki
Jackhammer Cait
The Reesenik
Clysdalle
LLT & Company

As Kate mentioned my neighborhood pretty quiet so please plan on mallet work and if nessessary do chainsaw roughcutting at home.

DON'T FORGET YOUR TOOLS!!
BYOB & Potluch
A drop cloth for the grass
A Burro
A wide brimmed hat & sunscreen
A folding beach chair
A cooler
A snorkle, goggles, towel & raft
A desire to get wet and clothing that allows same

OK, LET THE STOKE BEGIN! What are you gonna work on?????

I've got alot of half finished pieces lying around so maybe i'll use the positive group mana to battle through to the finish with "The Tangaroa That Never Ends". However w bowana and Meiko both in attendance I'd be a fool not to do some hook knife work w/ them...OOOOOOOH ....


Directions to
Hodaddy Lagoon

Hours: 10ish - Till Dusk sound good?

If you get to the beach early why not take a stroll through the Catamaran for some PNG inspiration!
