Excellent choice - I'll definitely need one! Do Grand Members get first dibs?! Hanford I know you said you didn't have any further details but is there any way we can we get some dimensions so that we can start making room on our shelves???

By the way, the use of the phrase "fresh mint" in your design is a clear violation of copyrights wholly owned by The Crazed Mugs and we hereby declare that you owe us .002% of all profits from the sale of said mug and/or drinking apparatus.
Besides, it's spelled "FRESH MINT!"

Wahoo. A great mug concept. Can hardly wait. As a TC member who joined post Shecky, I am very excited to own this very unique hut (with mini Shecky attached). Now where is the order info?? I'm not missing out on this one...

That's AWESOME, Randy! I'm glad they chose to do yours in spite of the complexity. It will be the most unique tiki vessel on the shelf and well worth the cost, whatever it is. I'm no mixologist, but someone needs to create a special and unique tiki drink to accompany this party bowl!

I certainly want one. Of course around here people will wonder why I have a maple syrup lodge with straw holes.

Hanford was kind enough to include me as one of the judges, and the Tiki Central Ohana Hut was my clear favourite, despite the excellent array of mugs up for judging. There was a brief moment of hesitation when I thought that it would be too difficult to make, but then I figured 'where there's a will, there's a way'.
Also, I've got a little Tiki ceramic hut that demonstrates that they aren't impossible to make. This one actually serves as an incense burner.
Anyway, a great competition and I think the best man won. Saying that, it would be nice to see the second and third place designs (which are inevitably easier to produce) made into mugs too. I don't suppose there's any chance of this?

I found the contest the night it ended. I looked at every design and this was the one that stuck in my mind. So happy it won. Part of Dan's collection involves building Polynesian villages. Each has huts and all of his smallest tiki collectibles. Wouldn't it be wonderful if this became a yearly item with a different hut each time, we could move up to larger villages placing our larger tikis like Coco Joe's around them. Congratulations but I think all of us are the winners when we add this one to our collections. Wendy
