So everyone is aware, as soon as I have all sections of the announcement reformated, I'll be moving it all to it's own subject in events.

If you're interested in obtaining the much smaller 2-page flyer, please PM me with your email address and I'll send it to you ASAP.

Mahalo!

No worries, here's the breakdown:

You and a friend, spouse, coworker (hopefully a fellow tikiphile) decide to play as a team. You contact me to RSVP (register) for the tournament and the dinner following (Knowing how many teams will be participating in advance will get us discounts for playing the course and I need a head count to give the restaurant). I will be registering a total of 20-2 person teams for the competition.

Between 4 and 6pm on Saturday, September 16th, you and your partner arrive at Adventure Golf and check in for the tournament (I'll be set up near the entrance) and play through their Jungle Adventure course. When you finish this specific course, turn in your combined score. At the end of the time period, the scores of all the teams will be tabulated. I'll be pairing teams for the competition, meaning that I'll be sending two-2 person teams down the course at the same time. Which 2 teams that will start the course together, will either be determined by random draw (putting names of teams that haven't played yet into a hat) or by first come, first served (if there's only two teams that haven't played ready at the moment, then I'll pair them). Though your team will be playing against another 2 person team on the course, it's the actual score of the individual teams that will count towards the overall competition. This sounds a little more complicated in text than it will be in practice.

There is no fee to take part in the tournament, only for the mini-golf. This means that you won't be charged extra for being in the competition.

It takes about 1 - 1 1/2 hours to play the entire course, so at 7pm I'll stop taking scores for the competition. That's why you need to be at the course and begin playing by 6pm. Also, Adventure Golf will not give us exclusive use of the course, meaning that people who aren't in the competition will also be able to play the course if they choose to. Therefore, it will take a little time to get everyone through. When you finish, you can either hang out in one of their covered areas and chat with your fellow Ohana, grab a soda at their snack bar or play one of the other 2 courses at a discounted rate of $3. Adventure Golf also has go-karts and drag racers (kind of a go-kart drag race) for an additional fee.

Between 7 and 7:30 (I'll change the time on the announcement) everyone will be leaving Adventure Golf and heading over to Red Lantern Chinese for dinner and the awards ceremony. If everyone shows up and gets through the course earlier than planned, we'll head to Red Lantern earlier. An hour into our dinner, I'll have an awards ceremony where the prizes will be distributed.

Prizes will be awarded to the 3 teams with the lowest combined scores. Prizes will also be awarded for personal achievements, like having the most holes-in-one or for being the first person to score a hole in one at a specific hole.

I gotta run, but I hope this has cleared some things up.

Please keep that feedback coming!

Mahalo!

I am not sure if I missed something but is this a kid friendly event? My two oldest are nuts about mini golf and I think they would get into it. They arent too into tiki stuff hope that is ok.

Also, if I think my shopmate and his family might want to come but again they don't really get the tiki stuff too much. Is this somthing to where you have to be a tiki maniac like me to enjoy?

Sorry I keep adding to this .

What is it going to cost for the banquet fees for after mini golf? Are there kids prices or is there a kiddie menu. Also what is tha age limit for both golf and banquet?

Aloha Dave,

Apologies, but I have very little time to respond at the moment.

Kids are welcome and if there is sufficient interest, there'll be a kids tournament, as well. I might not have prizes for the top three, but I should have one for the overall champion.

I'll be going into the Dinner portion of the event, later this evening. Good prices, but really no time to explain.

Actually, part of the purpose of this tournament is to invite anyone who might be interested in participating. Tikiphile or...tikicurious are more than welcome. I'm encouraging aloha attire, so you might want to encourage them to wear Hawaiian shirts, but no worries.

The non-district prices for both Adults and Kids mentioned are for people who live outside the Hyland Hills area.

That's all I have time for, but please keepp those questions coming!

Mahalo!

Elieo:

Just one more question and I promise to shut up. For informatins sake, is this more of a mini golf tournament or a tiki party? I guess what I am trying to find out is what is the connection of tiki and mini golf. I dont want to seem too stupid because I just want to know what to tell my friends it is. Our two families do mini golf at least five or six times every summer and this sounds like a great excuse to squeeze another golf game in. Plus of course I love the tiki stuff so that is for me. Getting my shop mate and his family to wear something that isnt Broncos or Avs might be a stretch. Maybe there is a Broncos aloha shirt somewhere.

Oh and also the adult prices and kids prices for golf and the award banquet..

Thanks for your patience.

Aloha again Dave!

Regarding the Tiki connection to mini golf. Since the great Tiki recession there's been one place where tiki has managed to survive, at least in some limited aspect: Mini Golf parks. Not all, mind you, but enough to keep the images of a once bygone era still visible.

Why did I chose mini-golf? Because Tiki, like mini golf, appeals to many of us as it touches some part of our childhood selves. It's something fun and competitive all at once and there's no seperation because of age or gender either. Everyone, at some point in their lives, has likely played mini or putt-putt golf and enjoyed it. So I thought it would be fun to get the tiki crowd together, even those new or strangers to tiki, for something a little fun and exotic.

Here's why I chose to have the tournament at Adventure Golf:




Okay, maybe not the most authentic looking, but for Colorado they're not too shaby.
This volcano stands about 14' tall and shoots out giant balls of flame.

And I haven't even included shots of the temple ruins or waterfalls.

Regarding fees:
Standard Adult fee is: $6.95 and Kids (under 13) are $4.95
If I can get 20 adults to sign up the per adult fee will drop to $5 and if all 40 sign up it will be $4.75
I don't think we'll get 20 kids to sign up, so I don't see the child price changing.

Now if you've played in the tournament and have an hour before we head off to Red Lantern, you might consider trying one of the other two courses. After the first game, additional games are discounted to $3 for Adults. I honestly don't know how much discount there is for additional Kids games, but I'll try to find out.

I think that should answer your questions. Sorry for all of the photos, but I scouted the site the other day and had some photos to share.

Mahalo!

-Eleio

Apologies Dave,

I didn't answer your original question.

Tiki Links is a Tiki inspired mini-golf tournament. Aloha attitudes and attire are encouraged, but it shouldn't be a problem if your shopmate and his family aren't thrilled about the Hawaiian clothes. Though there should be plenty of time for the Ohana to socialize, the park doesn't allow alcohol. There is a restaurant/bar across the parking lot, however. The party aspect really doesn't come into play until Red Lantern.

Further apologies to everyone for all of the posts.

I just received word from Oceanic Arts, regarding the tournament.

They really really like the whole concept and are willing to support the tournament and our Ohana with either:
A carved war club/paddle or mask as a prize.
They did not specify size or other details and I'm not asking. I feel that being allowed to choose the prize is enough of a liberty.

I'm really taken aback by their offer and I want to make sure the Ohana have a say in this. So, good Ohana, how say you? Post your thoughts tonight and I'll let them know what the consensus is, tomorrow morning.

Thanks a to Elieo!

That place looks pretty tricked out. I have never been there before so it will be cool to go to a new mini golf place. I hate to sound like a nag but if you could post the price for the banquet that would be helpful for planing since I want to bring my family and so does my buddy.

Looks like a lot of fun and thanks for all of that work and information.

Aloha!

Thanks to those who emailed their preference. Since there was no majority in opinion, I've communciated this to OC and they are going to select the item.

Mahalo!

Apologies for the delay on the Red Lantern info, life sometimes gets in the way of living.

Just to get this out of the way, the Red Lantern isn't the Twin Dragon.

The size and decor aren't nearly that of the Twin; However, Red Lantern is only 5-7 minutes away from Adventure Golf versus 30-45 (depending on traffic) minutes for the Dragon. In addition, they are really looking forward to hosting our little gathering and are willing to bend over backwards to accomodate us.

Seperate checks-ok
Lunch Menu combos available for the budget concious-ok (if I can confirm at least 20 for dinner)
Paper wrapped chicken for the pu-pus (an item that's been off their menu for two years)-Done
Reserved seating for 40+-Done

Prices:

Lunch Combos are all under $5 and include Egg Roll, Rice and Fortune Cookie.
Dinner Items are standard Chinese and generally run from $6.95-$8.95 Peking Duck is $19.95 (with 24 hour notice).

Pu-Pu Platters are $8.95 for two and include: 2 Egg Rolls, 4 Fried Shrimp, 2 Barbecue Ribs, 2 Fried Won Tons, Paper Wrapped Chicken and 2 Beef Teriyaki skewers.

They have a limited selection of Tiki Drinks including Zombies and Mai Tais, all served in Tiki Mugs. They have about five tiki drinks, but I only remember the two and I don't want to give incorrect info.

If there is interest, I can scan their menu and email it.

They're not the bigest or brightest on the block, but they instilled in me that they'll do everything possible to make us happy.

Thanks for asking Dave and don't be shy if you have any more questions.

Mahalo!
