Stuckie, I'm there to help too. (In fact, I still need to pick up my mugs from you too!) I'll help you vault over the fence at CT. Or maybe you could set up shop just barely off their property and sidetrack people as they enter. Floratina can create the distraction, then I'll toss you the grappling hook!

We called Munktiki and unfortunately they can't do anything this summer b/c they've got so much business! They don't even have any mugs to show because they all go out the door as soon as their made. It's our own damn fault!

The problem we were having with palm springs was not that we could not get a room, but there was not enough room to display/sell our mugs. Its my fault, I waited too long originaly didnt think we'd be able to go. I was going to go down there to just hang out but I cant really afford the time now as my weekends are pretty much dedicated to making molds and weekdays to build inventory. As kahukini said, I am having a hard time keeping items in stock. So even if we had gotten a space probably wouldnt of had alot of mugs there.

Will be there next year.

Shecky came to be after I suggested to Stuckie that Munktiki make a limited edition mug for Tikicentral members, by holding a contest for all TikiCentral members to design a mug. The winning design would then be sold by Munktiki as a limited edition.

My Shecky design was the winner!

I do feel the success of Shecky may be to the fact that the members were already familiar with his mischvious grin previous to the mug contest... I drew him up one day on a cocktail napkin, posted it to the board, and he became the unofficial mascot, appearing on stickers and other fun places.

Shecky even got his own slogan, from BigBro (I think?) which was 'LESS VIRTUAL REALITY, MORE RITUAL VIRILITY'.

His name came from Shecky Greene, whom I don't know much about. I wasn't the one who named him.

I'm sure other old timers can add to the Shecky story! Anyone?

Thanks, Tikifish! I was wondering if you were ever going to see the question
Great design.
