1. This pic is too cool, Vern! Christie, you look like a Tiki angel.

4. Sigh.

5. Oh, man, oh man, I forgot all about you taking this picture. I wonder what sort of other blackmail material is floating around out there?
Note to self: don't pose for goofy pictures while drunk!

7. Even though this occurred on Thursday night, it was one of the funniest parts of the weekend. This silliness was hard to beat, it set the bar for nutty behavior pretty high for Friday and Saturday. Kukulele's Mystery-Dance for Shelley and Inky might have come close... Why are Al n' Shelley always at the epicenter of insanity? Bless their hearts.

Nice pix Vern, thanks for sharing.

I see from the Hukilau web site that it will be held in September 2004 at the Mai Kai
Fort Lauderdale, FL., any reason for the move from June.

Just wondering

September is the slowest season in Lauderdale. It will allow us to deal with the hotel, etc. for the best deals. They will give us more space for free to get our large group in there. We hope we'll be able to have a large air conditioned room for vendors, lower rates, and such. Air fare may be lower at that time too. And the temperature is warmer then than June and the rainfall average is 2 inches less. Bottom line, more for less. AND, it moves us several months away from Tiki Oasis in May.

The only downfall to having the Hukilau in September, is that we now have to wait for over a year to the next one!

yeah, that's kind of depressing.
good rationale for the whole thing, though.

While I'm not a fan of waiting for OVER a year now. I can say one thing that's for sure... Swanky and Kiliki (and co.) sure know what they are doing when it comes to throwing a party. So I will HAVE to just wait... and accept it. I am ok with it.

The weather down here is much nicer in September. I'm going to try to go back to Mai Kai in December for my birthday.

Will we be sticking with the Holiday Inn, or trying out another beach front hotel?

We are trying others. We liked the locale, but there were problems. We especially need a place where we have "convention" space. Gotta be on the beach. Gotta be nice. Gotta be big enough. Gotta have a space to set the vendors up once and lock it up at night. ALL the vendors. Etc...

I always thought it would be damn cool to party in the Polynesian Room of the Sheraton Yankee Clipper, even though Tristan said they were not real cooperative when approached. The room's not decorated Polynesian anymore, but I bet we could raise the tiki spirits in the space and catch a good vibe.

it's not on the beach, but have youse looked into the Tropirock? it's about 1 block south and 1 block off the beach from the holiday inn, and it is SUPER SUPER cool - two of our friends that came to hukilau stayed there, and we got a little tour from the owner.

probably too small for hukilau, but worth noting for any solo/small-group mai kai pilgrims.

Yeah, we had lots of complaints about the elevators but all in all the hotel worked for this year. If I had another slice of pizza from that place around the corner I think I would croak.

Rain, I'll try the Tropicrock. We are trying to plan a trip there soon to scout around and find what would be best for the group. Maybe it doesn't need to be on the beach. As long as it's close I think attendees will be happy. I'll see how many rooms they have.
