I have seen Rain's work in person and he is a damn fine carver. I would be happy to shift my $45 over to him to help pay for the log as well.

Re: donation. I agree completely about the name "Friends of Tiki Gardens"

"Tiki Central" came out because I type faster than I think!

Also, I thought it would be easier for the organizers to just donate the money to a charity, as they have already done enough work and returning all those donations (especially the Paypal ones) would be a logistical pain in the ass -- not to mention involving some additional costs, so you'd never get the full amount back anyways.

But I'm fine with whatever.

And I STILL would like to see the deadbeat pledgers identified, as it would allow me to consider that fact every time they posted something to TC.

ok, i have a confession to make.
even though i didn't pledge any cash up front, very early on, i told tikigardener that i'd donate the sale of a painting to this. unfortunately, i didn't paint ANYTHING for about 6 months after that. (you can check my ebay history.)
so, i'm scum, sorry. but sometimes money problems and nazi job situations DO happen to folks.

anyway, i seriously would do this given the material, so if someone can tell me what the deal was suppsoed to be with getting the wood, or if the wood is already there, etc, how big it was supposed to be, etc etc etc...

I think it's obvious that the spirit is still there. Hell, 31 Tiki Centralites (or perhaps less, but more generous) dipped their hands in their pockets. The organisers I'm sure are still up for it, and Rain will do it out of love.

Muggler, I understand your idea about the using charity to make life easy. I was looking at it from the angle that choosing a charity would lead to more disagreements. Not sure whats the best way to go about it apart from funding Rain!

This all sounds very well intentioned, but the problem, as I understand it, is we can't just carve a tiki and stick it in the parking lot in Indian Rocks (not unless we want the city to come and haul it away). This whole project, design, etc. needs to be submitted and approved by the powers that be. That is why the costs and complications mushroomed.
I suggest we sit tight and see what happens when CY makes his presentation to the Indian Rocks kahunas next week. I'm still into leaving my donantion with him, even if he's not going to see the project through with the offical credit going to "Tiki Central". I really don't even care if my name is listed on the program, but I think Friends of Tikis Gardens is a good idea.

agreed, now that i see that letter from cy and have some clue as to what's going on with this. it seems to me that there should have been some sort of email going out, or a lttle more organization (a la what hanford was saying on the "where are we with the..." thread).
