I’ve been looking through all the other posts in the thread and found a few I’d like to suggest be added to the list on the first page:

5-Apr 1980 Final “Hawaii Five-O” episode airs
17-Apr 1967 Final “Gilligan’s Island” episode airs
20-Sep 1968 First “Hawaii Five-O” episode airs
26-Sep 1964 First “Gilligan’s Island” episode airs
12-Jan 2000 Tiki Central founded

The calendar already has “Hawaiian Eye” and Jack Lord’s birthday and death, so adding “Five-O” and “Gilligan” seems to fit. Speaking of TV actors,
one of Pittsburgh pauly’s lists has the birthdays of the women who played Ginger and Mary Ann, but I wonder if that is a slippery slope. If they’re included, should Bob Denver, Jim Backus, etc. be added, too?

November 1 is close! I’m excited to see what you’ve put together for us for 2018/1973.

Those look like great additions. I think Gilligan's Island is sufficiently "Tiki" to include the actor's birthdates (besides, it's my calendar! ) Another Gilligan's Island reference that I think is calendar worthy is December 5th, 1964, the date of the first airing of "Waiting for Watubi" where Skipper finds the Kona Tiki. Along the same lines is September 22, 1972 - the date of the Tiki pendant appearance on The Brady Bunch

I will look at those dates for the Detroit Mauna Loa, good catch. Thanks for all your help Hamo

The Mauna Loa opened on Saturday August 12, 1967.



Benny "Chang" for the Polynesian opening in Salt Lake City should be Benny "Chan".

The Hawaiian Luau at the Fontainbleau Hotel in NOLA opened on Tuesday May 21, 1963

Mike generously mailed me a printed 2018 calendar. It looks great—far more professional than the way I printed this year’s calendar. Thanks again, Mike!





Make sure to print your own calendar, one way or another.
