No
Martiki was joking
it was a standard black Harveys Sneaky Tiki
the photographer picked it off the shelf cause he knew what it was cause he had been there before
also pictures was a standard black Moai and the Harveys hula girl mug!

Now for O.T. My Bongo Rock CD I bought from Shwartz Grafiken or whoever it is, the last song on the CD is &$#@*up. Does anyone know who I can contact to get another one? Should I send this one back or what? Has anyone else had the same problem with the CD? JTV

It's snowing in NYC but the post office claims to deliver in all types of weather. My check should arrive at the bank soon.

OK folks

Below is the orig text from Nov 2002 from TikiGardener
At that time we had pledges totaling almost $2000 and now we only have $650 in real donations

What gives (or should I say what doesn't?)

If you are on this list and have not donated please act now,
If you know someone on this list and they are no longer on Tiki Central please contact them and remind them, if you are not on this list you can still donate (see separate Tiki Gardens page for info)

If you are on this list and have already donated do not get upset
I merely listed everyone's name out of convenience (rather than cross referencing with other data) and to be all inclusive. There are several folks on the list below who have already dontated.

Kailuageoff made the observation that if 100 members kicked in $20.00 each we'd have the money that would be in the neighborhood of the Mayors estimate of what it would cost to raise a tiki at Tiki Gardens.

Now instead of collecting the money up front before we explore the idea fully with the proper people, how about this ( Ottos idea by the way )

Anyone willing to join in makes a pledge, this is only a pledge, so the money stays in your pocket until the day comes that we get the go ahead.

So, let the pledge drive begin.

I'll pledge $300.00 to begin with. And if I can, I'll front more. But being a blue collar stiff, I have to play it close to the vest with the ducats.

It's obvious to me that the majority of these TC'ers never really intended to follow through.

I know I'm going to get flamed for this - I don't care. Shame on all of you who pledged & never came through. The majority of your pledges were for a measly $20 bucks. I'm trying to buy a house & have a baby on the way - I still kicked in. What's your excuse? So much for really caring about Tiki...

I agree. Frankly, I think it's a load of BULLSHIT that anyone here would pledge money for this and then not follow through.

I think the Tiki Central names of people who pledged and didn't give should be publicly listed here for all to see. In a situation like this I believe peer pressure is a reasonable tactic, and public humiliation a perfectly reasonable punishment for not following through on pledges.

This situation really speaks to the general character of Tiki Central, don't it?

-Mike

Hey, even though I'm on the list I did send my pledged amount plus alittle extra about a week or so ago.

I am in total agreement with shame'n these people into sending in their pledge. We all talk about all these mugs we score. Well I put my mug purchasing off for a couple of weeks to honor my pledge, I think it is a much better cause than having another mug sitting on my shelf. And I loves my mugs!

So lets have it fellow TCers, and send in that pledge!!!

Unfortunately, I'm afraid it is too late - unless someone wants to step up to the plate & fly out to Florida to make this thing happen....

If this thing is really dead, then what is going to happen to the funds those of us decent folks have already sent in?

I vote that it be donated to a social charity (homeless or children) in the Tiki Gardens area under the name Tiki Central.

weren't (some of) those funds used up in pitching the offer. i donated w/ the understanding that the project might not be seen through to completion.

anyway, if (some of) the money can be retrieved, donating it to a worthy cause is fine by me.

but ...

i propose to do it NOT under the name "tiki central" b/c clearly it was only a few of us who honoured our pledges but another name, such as "the friends of tiki gardens" or some such name.

take care,
chris

I agree with tiki Chris "i propose to do it NOT under the name "tiki central" b/c clearly it was
only a few of us who honoured our pledges but another name, such as
"the friends of tiki gardens" or some such name."
I am not angry at Tiki Central as a whole, but I am fuming at those individual "a-holes" that disgraced our name. There is the saying "one bad apple spoils the bunch", in this case is seems like 100-200 bas apples.
Did we really only donate about $600? if so that means only about 30 of us donated. Don't we have about 600 members? I live in California and might never make the effort to visit the Memorial so it is not like it is something that will make my neighborhood nicer. I probably would never have the chance to enjoy seeing it in person, but I still was glad to donate.
May the Tiki's impose only Tiki Leilani's in the future for the flakes that didn't contribute!!

I agree - I'd love to see a complete listing of the names of all who pledged & then didn't pony up....

I can understand the call for a 'name and shame' session (and for a while thought that way myself), but it's not going to help raise the statue. Those who pledged and didn't come through know who they are and live with their actions. Probably they will justify their (lack of) action because 'something came up'. Whatever.

As for the money, return it to the people who paid and they can give it to charity, spend it on mugs, or whatever they feel themselves. Personally, I'd rather put my money where I want it to go to (In this case a homage to Tiki Gardens) than something random chosen by someone else.

Sorry for being crabby, but this is a sour day for Tiki Central, though I must stress that a good number of pledgers did so via the Tiki News e-mail and never actually made any real contribution to TC.

It's too bad but a lot of people will always say one thing and do another. For me it's "say what you mean and mean what you say". Or say nothing at all, but do it anyway. As for me, I never said I'd contribute, but I did towards the end, because the cause was worthy, in my opinion. I wonder if we could get another good carver out there to do it for cheaper.

Can I also point out the amount of work by TikiGardener, Otto, Chris Y and others to make this thing happen make our contributions
utterly meagre in comparison. Real thanks to all involved.
