Hey Otto,
I'll check with the "regulars" and see what people would be interested in doing and what their plans for the Oasis are. I'll send you a PM once I talk to a few people.
Mieko

Can beginners come to the 1/20 chop chop? The Mr has just started carving (not too bad!) and I'd like to incurage him. Or is this gonna be something that moves along swiftly and for experts? Like an exhibit type event?

Hey all you crazy carvers!

Do you want to recreate this event at Tiki Oasis live?

Or would you be interested in exhibiting the top 5 or ten Tikis resulting from the Chop Chop?

Either way it would give publicity/notoriety to your event.

Let me know if you are interested and we can brainstorm ways to make it happen Aug 17, 18 at the Hanalei




I would love to do a live event....man, this club is going to need shirts and stickers and a logo and a team van and and and.....

ok, slowing down now. Yes, a live event would be great...

Oops... my Much-Better-Half and I will be out of town that day...



... we'll try to meet up with Gecko or Swanson for a Mai Tai. Maybe we'll get drunk and crank call the Chop Chop!

This is really starting to turn into a club. SoCal Tiki Choppers. Sounds like a bike gang. haha

Hau 'oli Tiki and tikihai, you guys are welcome to come, the more the merrier - at least until we fill up the yard. It sounds like 4WDTiki's place should be roomy enough for everyone that's interested.

Hey Otto if you're reading this, here's some ideas, mebbe they work mebbe not;

- Cordon off a BIG area in the parking lot and just let the chips fly. First come first served, the area could have spaces for as many as 50 choppers at a time.

- Get Buzzy to sell raw palm logs for cheap, he has a lot of hauling and stripping of palm bark to do to each one, so I don't think giving them away is gonna work but he could sell 'em for 20 bucks and up. That ain't bad.

- Group projects! TEAMS! The Socal Choppers vs. OC Little Shavers in the tiki chop to end all tiki chops! You in, Bamboozled Benjamin? I dare ya! I double dog dare ya!

- Talks by pros, scheduled once or twice a day.

- Sponsors; Flexcut and Home Depot? Providing water and some door prizes?

- End-of-day sunset drinks; arrange the tikis in a circle-the-wagons around us and talk over the day's various cuts and bruises.

- Best of, Schmest of, fergettit! These Tikis are All Good!

Absolutely! I believe at the last one, there were a couple people carving their first tiki. As Clysdalle said, the more the merrier. Space is not a problem, here's a pic of my backyard.

Here's a list of people so far:
Buzzy
Zaya
Cammo
Clysdalle
Mieko
Babalu
tikihai
hiltiki
Tikidav
Hau 'oli Tiki
Mr. NoNaMe
Moki
OnaTiki
Tiki-Kate
tikimecula
Me

I live fairly close to the Oceanside train station, so any one coming via Amtrak or Coaster can be picked up easily.
I'm just off the I-5 and 78 junction, and will PM my address to all in a week or so.
This will not be a rain or shine thing, so we are depending on good (enough) weather here!

Otto, maybe it would be a good idea to start a new thread about a chopchop at Tiki Oasis? This is starting to get confusing.

Does the TSA check for sharp objects on trains?

I am trying to be there.

Holy smokes 4WD, you've got your own cattle farm! The TikiPonderosa?!

Yes, please count me in for the Chop-Chop. I'll see about bringing some fruit skewers again. They go so well with Mieko's Spam Misubi. MMMMMM................

Hey 4WD, I think you should say yes. We may need him for a beer run

You're coming down in this, right?
