Gave it all away?

Think of all the rum that money would have bought!

Latest update for those who don't get our email blasts (and if you dont, why not? Go sign up at http://www.LuauAtTheLake.com and make sure you have bargoyle@luauatthelake.com on your allowed list)

*****
Alooooooooha!!!!

First, a big Mahalo to everyone who has purchased tickets for this year’s Ohana out at the Tiki Resort in beautiful Lake George, NY.

Ticket sales have been overwhelming!

If you haven’t pulled the trigger yet, you’d better act fast. We only have a limited number of tickets available, and we will sell out again this year.

And speaking of selling out (how’s that for a segue?) the Tiki Resort is now SOLD OUT. Its possible that some rooms may open up due to cancellations, but in the meantime, if you haven’t made lodging arrangements, fear not!!

Our official over-run hotel is once again the Holiday Inn, directly across the street from the Tiki (with a fantastic vantage point for some spectacular photos of the Tiki & the Lake). They’ve given us a rate of $159/night. Give them a call at 800.315.2621 and be sure to mention the Ohana Tiki Event to get in on the room block. You can get more info at http://www.lakegeorgeturf.com/

If you don’t mind a bit of a walk to/from the event, there are also some GREAT old mid century modern motels to stay at up the road (I’ll list some w/ pics at the end).

Also, the Lake George Battleground State Campground is RIGHT next door to the Tiki for those who want to go native and rough it. http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/24453.html

And there are a couple of other campgrounds around if you want to hitch up that vintage Airstream and take her out for a cruise!

Ok, so now that your lodging problems are solved, onto to the fun stuff!!!

We are doing the Dole Cocktail Contest again this year!! We’re going to switch it up a bit and try to have more items available to the entrants, but its pretty much the same idea. Create an original cocktail creation using AT LEAST one Dole product and compete for fabulous awards & prizes (not to mention bragging rights) Entrees will be judged on Use of Dole Products, Presentation, and Taste.

If you’re interested in showing off your mixology skills, just send me an email ( Bargoyle@LuauAtTheLake.com ) with the word CONTEST in the subject line. Spots are limited, so if you want in, let me know soon!

Much more to come, so keep an eye on your inbox.

Mahalo! and we’ll see ya at the Lake!!!

-Bargoyle

ps. I almost forgot!!

Some of my favorite Lake George Retro Motels (there are MANY others, and a quick web search may reveal an undiscovered gem!):

Do anyone know if there's a train or bus that goes to Lake George from NYC. Apparently, http://www.trailways.com/travel/individual-bus-tickets/northeast.asp does, but I can't find the schedule or anything.

Aloha Kids!

Its your Uncle Bargoyle, back with more announcements from the Lake.

First of all, we’re thrilled to announce that Fisherman will be joining us again this year, so get ready for some wild vibraphone antics on Saturday afternoon… maybe even enjoy the set while lounging in the pool!

We’ve also got a bunch of new vendors who are joining us, offering you the finest in Retro/Tiki/Polynesian Pop wares. You can see the list at
http://www.luauatthelake.com/id8.html

Not only vendors, but we’ve got some GREAT sponsors that have stepped up again this year, giving us swag & freebies and ensuring that the event is gonna rock your socks off!! Check them out at http://www.luauatthelake.com/id9.html and be sure to support them whenever possible!!!

We’ve also got a couple of spots open for those who want to host a room during our (in)famous Room Crawl (more info here: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=35113&forum=4&start=15&22 ). If you’re interested, contact Hep at hep@LuauAtTheLake.com

And we’ve got a few spots still open for the Dole Cocktail Contest. If you want in on that (or need more info) contact me: Bargoyle@LuauAtTheLake.com

And while we’re on the subject of things we have a few of (I am becoming a segue master!), tickets to the event continue to sell!!

Huge Mahalos to those who have purchased, and those who haven’t, seriously, now is the time. You can get tix at http://www.luauatthelake.com/id4.html

Oh, also, if you weren’t planning on joining us at the Kick Off 80s Prom on Thursday night, but have changed your mind, you can add the prom to your tickets on the webpage (www.LuauAtTheLake.com). I really think its going to be one of the stand-out events of the weekend, so if your schedule permits, grab your parachute pants & Aqua Net, and join us for a magical Prom, the way it SHOULD have been. You can peep some of the Prom shenanigans and planning over on the FOM website: http://www.fraternalorderofmoai.org/huimalu/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8682

Lots more to come really soon, including more music, entertainment, vendors, activities and the Limited Edition Ohana Mug!! ( Holy Sh*t did Squid knock it outta the park this year. Pics soon, I promise. )

As always, we’ll see ya at the Lake!!
