Alnshely, Poly Pop and Tiki_Bong, we had a wonderful, wonderful time! Thank you so very much for everything. For the drinks, the beautiful dancing, the drinks, the yummy food, the drinks, the AM-U-LET, the drinks, the goodtimes with friends, the drinks, the mystical sounds of paradise floating thru the night air AND the drinks. It was magic! That or it was the Agwa
Thanks for allowing us to be apart of your International Tiki Day celebration! MAHALO! - DawnTiki

I want to add my thanks to Al n' Shelly for hosting a wild party in their beautiful Lagoon Room. The food, drinks, music, dancing, and spirit of tiki were all in abundance. Thanks to all the people who made this happen. I'm a fairly new member of the tiki central bb, and I'm still amazed at how much fun you guys are having. I can appreciate how much work goes into these events, and it's all done with such a generous attitude. How cool is that? With all the bad craziness going on the world, the tiki people are like a delightful little island oasis.

Well, I am finally able to write, but still suffering from a two day hang over.. but need to say, for only my second tiki event, this one was a blast. The home brew was top notch, and bird had a nice presentation. The music was great, but why doesn't Crazy Al give us some of that stuff he is on, glad he did not pick me to dance with. It was nice to meet most of the TIKI CLAN. But AlnShelly, that was above and beyond. Thanks for the ranging good time and food and Al I am proud of you for not getting upset when someone else manned the Lagoon Room Bar... We all know it is your sanctuary and you remain the Kahuna...... more when my brain kicks back in.

Whew.... The big mess is now all cleaned up and Al is taking a much needed nap. I really had a lot of fun and it was great seeing all my tiki peeps again!
Thanks so much Bax & Sarah, you really came through with all the decorations & food. Thanks to everyone who brought food, booze, ice and cool gifts. Wow! Moki, that Kaluah Pig was awsome!
Thanks to Bong and the Smokin' Menehunies for really tearing it up. You guys were kickin'. Oh, Bong, I need my panties back! Also thanks to Judd, Poly Pop, Crazy Al & the King for additional hilarious entertainment.
And thanks again to the King & CB Howlie for FINALLY leaving on Sunday at 4:00 pm. Geez!
Really, it was great having so many people sleep over! But did you all have to come and wake me up like that? The blue pancakes were really great, sorry you missed them Bax. Monkey Man, you really out did yourself! My fridge is stocked with two gallons of milk, 10 pounds of grapes, 4 packs of hotdog buns, and two dozen eggs, so I guess I won't be going hungry. In additon Al and I have been enjoying a dog or two! Thanks Frank you were awsome!
Thanks Tina for helping us get set up & broken down all through the weekend. Speaking of broken down... about that screen door... just kidding!
To the SF crew, wow, thanks for making the trip! We were honored to have you. Come back again when you can't stay so long!
In addition only a few lost items have been recovered from the wreckage. So far I have found one pair of platform sandles, (very cute, but not my size!), one pair of sunglasses, and of course lots of Tupperware and such. Anybody missing stuff just shoot us an e-mail or pm.
Well I am starting to get a little bored here all by myself so if anyone wants to come over and help me polish off some of this extra rum...feel free! The Lagoon Room is always open!
I love you all, my TC Ohana, -Shell in the Pacific

Another fantastic event brought to you by fabulous TC hosts... A&S Rock'a Hula!
Only thing to say is I now know how seared Ahi is prepared with out cooking the tasty inside. I did a 'Grasshopper' # on my leg with the fire pit caldron... no tiger marks to show my Myers's induced bravery however.... but no damage done 'ither.
The Menehunes really kick some ass these days and I was supper stoked to enjoy the Myers's buzz along with their show. Music is magical and the Menehunes cast a great and powerful spell.
Lizzy finally let it all hang out at a tiki event!! She said she had a great, fun time talking to everyone, but doesn't quite know what was said...
I know better then to stop her when she's on a role, just better to jump on and enjoy the ride.
(ooo... that didn't come out that good) Anyway... What a time with all of you.
Till next year, (when I master the 'Reed' Mouth Harp AL gave me)...
A long and Happy Tiki Year to you all!

I don't think I will need another lap dance my entire life!
My right ear has been whispered off!
My upper lip was almost removed!
And no they were not strings (full panties)
And yes some day Sara will get over it?
What a party! ! ! !
