Thanks to everyone who entered! There were so many great designs! I was really impressed with everyone's creativity and dedication to the contest. My congratulations go out to everyone who participated. With so many entries, the judging was tough. But in the end a clear winner rose up among the others.

Our Winner:

Congratulations Chongholio! The Tiki Central Ohana Hut is our winner!

But beauty does come at a price. Because it's such large, detailed, two piece mug (bowl, really), it is not going to be cheap, and it ain't going to be quick to produce. But we're sure the final product will be worth it.

Stuckie and I spent a lot of time debating whether or not we should pick such an expensive mug as the winner. Making this mug is going to take some time, and will likely be priced outside of a some member's budgets, and for a bit I wondered if we should choose a design that would be more in line with Shecky's original price. But after discussing it with Stuckie and a few other members, and considering how clearly in won it the judging, we decided to go forward with it. After all, it does represent what Tiki Central is all about. And I think it's going to be a fantastic collectible for everyone here on TC.

At this point I have NO OTHER DETAILS. No final price or shipping date has been set. We'll give people plenty of notification before they go on sale though.

At this time I will not be announcing the runner-ups. Congratulations to the winner!

It's just what I've always wanted... fill the house with rum and slurp it all down. Congrats Chongolio! It's a beautiful design deserving of praise.

I love this design and am thrilled Chongo won!

I'm wondering if the (gasp!) design could be simplified a bit to make it simpler, smaller and more affordable. In the drawing it's more rectangular in shape (from the top view). Why not make it more of a square mug with a lid? I think the spirit and feeling of the design would translate well to a bigger or smaller version. It could still have 2 or more straw holes so you and your ohana could all drink from it. Just a thought.

Congrats again to Chongolio and all who entered! Can't wait to get mine.

A GORgeous choice, judges!
It's beaUtiful, Chongolio!! And you had some STIFF-ass competition!!
The TC Ohana Hut surely does symbolize what we're all about.

I cannot WAIT to see one in person
(since I already fear I'll be one of the outside-of-some-members'-budgets people )!
But I'll admire enviously!!
