See you there, or by the pool all day on Friday and at the shows on Friday and Saturday nights. Plus I will make an effort to visit each room that is hosting. See you there!

Aloha, Tiki Oasis Room Hosts and Crawlers!

It's about that time, Folks. (Time to start thinking about the 2007 Tiki Oasis Room Crawl...that is.)

So who wants to be a Room Host? Who wants to crawl? Please respond to this thread if you would like to do either or both. Every year we have had a great response, and everyone has had lots of fun decorating their rooms, sampling drinks, and sharing their hospitality and mixology skills!

As I have in the past, I will create a schedule of room hosts and the times they would like to serve drinks in their rooms. As usual, I will create and pass out the Crawl Cards and plastic sleeves on Thursday and Friday at the hotel.(Hopefully before I pass out.)

Anyone can e-mail me with any specific questions, of course. As soon as I get a few responses from interested Room Hosts, I will start posting the schedule. Room Hosts, start thinking about when you would like to open up your room to the crawlers, and let me know of your day and time.

I am looking forward to seeing all my old friends and meeting any newcomers! All are welcome!

Aloha & Mahalo,

We'll be crawling & hosting - had such a great time crawling at the Caliente Tropics that we figured we'd host this year, too. We already have our coll & unique recipe developed - can't wait to share!

Oh - and there will be 3 of us.

Aloha Hosts and Crawlers,

I got a few questions from VampressRN and I thought I would pass along her questions and my answers to you...

VampressRN wrote:

Hi there.....this will be my first Oasis, so of course I have a few questions about the room crawl.
1. What time does the crawl start on Friday night?
2. Do crawlers usually bring a kudos gift to the hosts?
3. Does everyone end up in one room at a time, or do we rotate through the rooms on a schedule?

My response...

Aloha Vampiress,
Your questions are good ones. If you search the Room Crawl posts from the past you might get a few more answers, and probably end up twice as confused. Anyway, now I will attempt to answer your questions...

The crawl starts when ever the room hosts decide they want to start serving. So that is pretty much up to the hosts to decide when they want to have a bunch of people in their hotel rooms. They usually work around the entertainment schedule, and serve drinks in the afternoons/evenings on Thursday, Friday, and maybe all day Saturday, and after the bands on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Hosts usually sign up for a two hour time block. I just try to keep it organized. The hosts sign up on a first come first serve basis, for the time blocks, and sometimes the times will overlap between hosts. It just all depends on what they want to do.

Once everyone tells me the times they want to host, I print up a schedule of names and times. Then I try to keep the Hosts and Crawlers aware of the times and names of Room Hosts. We never know room numbers until after check in, so we do that by word of mouth at the event. Some Hosts post signs on thier doors or make up invites on small cards that they pass around to crawlers they meet. I usually carry the schedule around with me during the event. If someone brings thier laptop, we could possibly update the schedule during the event! Wow, the technology is just amazing these days!!!

I'm sure Hosts would appreciate donations or small gifts of appreciation/ tips, but that is entirely up to you/or them. Sometimes they make requests, such as bring a bag of ice, or something for mixing, like juice or booze.

So once you get to the hotel, look around for me. I will be the one holding a shoe box full of Crawl Cards, which are like dance cards, that allow you to check off the room hosts you have visited. Hosts will usually initial the card for you or punch it with a hole punch. The card is your souvenier to keep. I usually bring a limited supply of plastic sleeves that you can store your card in and wear around your neck while you crawl. This helps you keep track of your card, and it keeps it from getting wet, unless, of course, you forget to remove it before swimming.

It is fun meeting the hosts and crawlers, sampling the drinks, enjoying the room decor, and running from room to room, trying to visit them all!

Let me know if you have any other questions, and I will be happy to answer them. Or you may post your questions on the Tiki Central Room Crawl Thread and I will answer them there.

Mahalo & Aloha,
Shell in the Pacific
