I wanted to thank everyone for all of their help and advice at the Shriners Luau Chop.
The chops are really the best way for a visual learner like myself to learn about tiki carving.

I have a few pics of the "Nerf Tiki" I did. Cammo gets credit for the design on this one since I had no idea what to do.

I hope to burn this one at the next chop.







Can't wait for the next chop. I will keep an eye out for upcoming dates.

I hope to burn this one at the next chop.

That first tiki is pretty cool, considering the difficulty level of that log. Bravo, Geedavee!

I'll post some pics of the happenings later. Grace left early and took my freakin' camera with her(Grace and Bella were definite victims of the heat!) so I did'nt get pics of the pig or anything.

Speaking of heat exhaustion, how is Mieko doing today?


Got a message from Buzzy and he had to work yesterday, thus the absence of my Martins' Lewis.

Paint the Nerf Tiki white & red and it would look like the Joker from Batman! Great job considering it carved like old styrofoam. It might not burn - it might MELT.

How about a beach party next time, so we can go in the water anytime we want to cool off? (It's always cooler beside the ocean anyway.) I carved at the beach once and it was fantastic - a whole crown gathers around and there's nothing like Tikis, Sand and Saltwater all together.

Time spent carving Tikis at the beach is not subtracted from your life's total hours.

Thanks for asking - Today is going fine, but yesterday was bad - by the time I got home I was pretty out of it for quite a while.

It was a pretty neat time with all the different faces, but heat + Mieko = Bad

Glad Mieko feels better. We should bring a little thermometer with us when we're carving, inside the Flexcut box.

How about a Beach-Chop-A-Bingo!?

On a Saturday, South Mission Beach, right beside the jetty. We can do a fire all day, swim, hang, chop, play guitar and uke, whatever. Italian Bocce Ball World Elimination Match. Lots of Hawaiian plate lunch places close by. I say do it the first weekend in June. All day, stay as late as ya want.

Aloha Faithful Choppers,
It was good meet and re-meet a few of you yesterday. Billy thanks for inviting TC people to this event! Jeremy and I enjoyed chatting with everyone, and we were sorry we had to leave so early and miss the rest of the afternoon. Meiko, sorry to hear how the heat did you in. I know I have been there, and it is no fun! Don't worry, it won't be so bad at Hukilau! I'm looking forward to seeing you there! I'll keep my eye on the Chop Thread, and try to get to another one soon! Mahalo again Billy!
Aloha,
Shelley

A few of us had talked and mentioned Tikimecula's place as a possibility for the next chop, just cause it's such a great place, but after last weekend I'm less excited about chopping in the (very likely) extreme heat.

Personally, the best date for me is the 28th. The 21nd I might be able to make for a few hours, but I'm pretty sure it's a bad date for Kate.

If we did a beach chop I'd want to make sure we have bathrooms nearby, I'd want to make sure we don't leave splinters in the sand, and look into the legality. As we chop in public places we have to be a lot more careful and safety minded.

South Mission is right beside (like 200 feet) the newest public bathrooms in San Diego. They are beeeuti-ful!

We'd be right in front of the lifeguard station, I've carved there before and they were cool with it. They love it in fact.

We can just put down some towels or beach blankets to carve on, its easy. Square off an area just for us. Dump the chips into the firepit right beside us.

Parking is easy and plentiful early in the day.

Lots of beach shells.

Swimming & surfing is great.

Thomas can play Uke.

There are at least 3-4 Hawaiian plate lunch and Islander gift shops real close.

Gee, have I forgot anything????

Let's make it for the 28th, then! I should be all settled in and be able to make it with little or no stress on the family cabletow.
I'm thinking we should bring food instead of paying for it, man. Pic-nic style........made crunchy with bits of sand!
