Aloha everyone!!!

This is probably my final update before the event, and its a biggie, but please take a second to read it all.

It'll help prepare you for what you're in for...

Some of the events we haven't discussed too much, that deserve a little attention:


MINI GOLF TOURNAMENT

Play any of the cool mini golf courses in town and you could be our mini-golf champion!

There’s Goony Golf, right up the road on Canada street (exit the resort & head left. Its right on the corner of rte 9 & 9N). A staple of Lake George for over 30 years, it lives up to its name! It’s a little far to walk, but a VERY short car ride.
http://www.goonygolf.com/

Also up in that direction (and a little closer) is Pirate’s Cove. A little more modern, but a fun course none-the-less. And no one looks at you funny if you run around saying “YARRR” the whole time. http://www.piratescove.net/location/19

For a close course, there’s Around the World Golf. As you leave the resort, take a right, then take your first right on W. Brook Road. The course is on your left on the corner of W. Brook & Beach Rd, overlooking the Lake. VERY close & easily walkable, and you’ve got your choice of courses: Around the World or Around the US. http://www.aroundtheworldgolf.com/

All you have to do to enter the contest is play one of the courses before 5pm on Saturday, and turn in your scorecard to any of our Ohana volunteers (At the Merchandise table, Silent Auction table, or Check-in table). Please write your name (badge name, real name, or screen name…we don’t care, as long as its something you’ll answer to!) on the score card, and which dinner show you’ll be in (Early, Late, or None). That’s it!

We’ll have prizes for the best & worst scores (please be HONEST when playing) as well as a special prize for the person with the best Golf Outfit…so breakout your best golf togs & knee-high socks! Fore!!!


SILENT AUCTION

Over in the vendor’s area, we’ve got a booth set up with fantastic donations from our advertisers & sponsors. Go peruse the incredible selection of tiki wares and one-of-a-kind items, and if you like something, place a bid. The booth will be open at 10AM on Saturday, and bidding will close by 5:00pm (maybe even a bit earlier). All items must be paid for immediately after bidding closes and winners are announced. There’s some AMAZING stuff up for bid, so go check it out. Be sure to bid early and bid often!


SURF MUSIC 101

Also on Saturday, at 1pm, Sandy from 9th Wave has agreed to give a short presentation about Surf music. Full of fun tidbits, cool sounds, and little education (it wont hurt, I promise), its going to be fun for all, from the surf novice to the surf expert. The presentation will happen in Paradise.


VENDORS

We’ve got some great vendors coming in from across the globe to bring you incredible items that your life is not complete without. The Vending area will open at 2pm on Friday, and at 10AM on Saturday. How late they stay open is at the discretion of the Vendors (we don’t want to tie them up too much, they want to join the party too!) but booths should be open until at least 5pm each day.


OHANA MUGS/MERCHANDISE

Yes, we’ll also have our own stuff for sale out in the vending area. I’m sure you’ve all seen the George Mug that our pal Squid designed. Well, we’ve got a limited number of George’s still available that will be sold first come-first serve.

We’ve also got a bunch of other stuff (pendants, event posters, & clothing) that we want to surprise you with, so be sure to stop by the Merchandise booth and take a peek at all the groovy stuff we’ve got.


PIRATE CHEST RAFFLE

When you check in, be sure to sneak a peek at the four Pirate’s chests, full of tiki goodies… because we’re going to close them and lock them up. Interested in taking home what’s inside them? Buy a key that may be the lucky one to open it! The chests will be out (and locked up) all day on Saturday to try your keys in. If your key opens it, its contents are yours! EVERY raffle key will fit into the locks, but only the lucky ones will open them. Keys are $3ea, or 2 for $5, and there are a limited number of them available. What better way to celebrate “Talk Like A Pirate Day” than trying to get at me booty?


SWAG, SWAG, & MORE SWAG

For those who have been to our events before, you know we LOVE to give away free stuff, and this year is no different. We’ve made our coveted Swag-Bags again this year, and you’ll get one when you check in. Its chock full of goodies and samples, but its not complete. No, there was SOOO much stuff this year (some of it too fragile to include in the bags) that we’re doing a SECOND ROUND OF SWAG on Saturday!! Stop over by the Silent Auction booth on Saturday to be sure to get the “big ticket” swag items that were donated by Trader Vics & Kegworks. You don’t want to miss out on these!

***

And since I’ve been mentioning check-in (a lot) in this post, maybe I should go over that process for everyone.

Starting at 2PM on Friday, our check-in booth will be open. Simply come over and give us the email adrs & name you used to purchase your tickets. You’ll be handed an envelope with your badges in inside, and given lanyards to attach them to. Please wear your badge at ALL times when at while at the event. Not only does it let us know that you’re a paying attendee, but it also acts as a nice name tag…and the schedule of events is printed on the back for quick reference.

If you pre-purchased a George mug, your Certificate of Authenticity will also be in the envelope, as well as a ticket you need to turn in at the Merchandise table to pick up your George.

At check-in everyone receives a swag bag, a copy of Ohana Magazine, and if you registered early, a replica of the Tiki Motor Inn’s Hurricane glass. (These were offered to people who purchased tickets before the end of May, but we should have some extras for sale if you’re interested).

Phew!! I think that’s everything, and I’ll have a lot of this info printed on the supplemental handouts available in the Lobby of the Tiki and at check in.

Just a few days to go. I cant wait to see you all.

Mahalo, and we’ll see you at the Lake!

I've been informed that there is at least ONE room available for Ohana at the Tiki Resort.

If you want it, call now & reserve!! then you can cancel your reservation at the Holiday Inn (or wherever you're staying)

Call me a party pooper, but hopefully those are happening wherever I am not.

I think I heard that it's in your room, Jon
The only question is whether it is before or after the fabulous vintage TV film fest

I'm still carving some brand new pieces just for Ohana this weekend!

Right up to the wire... I'll be painting again tonight!

Then it all gets packed up and I head out for Lake George!

I'll be all set up for Friday night's festivities and again for Saturday's events.

I'll still be lurking around all day Sunday for those last minute gets too!

But I encourage you to stop by early for best selection... over 70 pieces coming to Ohana!

PNG, Hawaiian Islands, Marquesan Islands, Cook Islands, Caroline Islands and Polynesian Pop Inspired carvings.

See you at The Lake!

The little lady and I are chomping at the bit to head up to the lake! This is our first "real" Tiki event and we are psyched!
After reading the latest email, our excitement level has doubled! (if that's possible) We're stunned with anticipation!

Yes your right - perhaps the naked elvis bellyflop contest should 'stay in vegas', but that said
There will be a bevy of vintage television shows in their 16mm glory, for your viewing pleasure, in my room or if the weather permits - outdoors... drive-in style!

OHANA- VINTAGE TELEVISION 16MM FILM FESTIVAL

Hawaiian Eye - Kakua Woman - with original commercials inserted
Hawaiian Eye - I wed three wives
Batman - Surfs Up, Jokers Down!
Brady Bunch - Hawaii Bound
The Shriners Aloha Chapter 1955 Vacation in Hawaii
Harry Owens - Polynesian Holiday - (yes companion film to the LP)
and tons more.... Hawaii 5-0, Fantasy Island, Enchanted Island the movie!
Lost In Space-'Platinum touch', Star Trek- 'Trouble with Tribbles', All three Creatures from the BL, Flipper - 'The Creature', Mod Squad

Don't know when they will play - but if there is an episode you want to see - then just ask!
