The Huntington Cads (Chris Barfield, Steve Hill, Josh Agle, Jeff Utterback) want to thank Otto, Babydoe and their great, giving, tireless cast and crew of volunteers! Also huge thanks to Jim Giddings and Bob the sound guy and the stage crew for making our reunion show and our weekend a wonderful experience!
Can we come back? lol! Please?

It would be cool for other Ohana to post thanks here also...

Here Hear !
This Oasis was A-MAZ-ING !!! The Cads kicked major ass, and I lost my voice screaming at the show.
Don Brewski, awesome drum beatdown in the Cads set. I'll post pics soon.
Thanx Otto and Baby Doe for another amazing Oasis !

Mahalo to Otto and Babydoe for putting on an excellent event. It was well organized, well run, and super-fun. It must be a lot of work to put an event like this together.
It was great to be among so many like-mind people that are enthusiastic about Polynesian Pop.
I think most agree that The Huntington Cads were FANTASTIC! It would be great to see them back next year. (I hope they play together sooner than that).
Other musical highlights for me were Thee Swank Bastards and The Phantom Surfers.
I thought Heather Watt's velvet paintings were wonderful to see in person.

Dear Otto and Baby Doe,
I honestly thought this was the best Oasis ever! Rebecca says so too. Thank you for making us so happy! Sorry you didn't get a Ginger Bimbo. I'll mail you one!

Again, great job. I made some money, had some fun, saw some boobs, ate some food, drank some rum, did some carving, hung with old friends, walked around in my underwear with my chainsaw, and had a genuinely great time. I think I may do it again next year, too. And Otto, thanks for bringing KP this year. Haven't seen him in six feakin' years!!

Oh yes, another fabulous Tiki Oasis (am still here at the Crowne with Patrick, Heather and Mike.) No complaints (though I missed all the Saturday party and drama action having passed out at 9:30 pm from sheer exhaustion.) Looking forward to T/O 10!

This was my first year being able to go and it was absolutely insane. Such a great time! Thank you so much for putting this together. My only regret was that the weekend seemed too short.

Thanks to Otto & Babydoe, it was one of the most enjoyable Oasis for me, great band choices for the most part, with Huntignton Cads, Phantom Surfers and Meshuggah beach Party as my personal highlights from the big stage performance.
Also, Tikiyaki at the pajama party sounded awsome.

I had a great time at my virgin Oasis! Vending is hard work but I sold enough to pay for my trip, met some wonderful new lifelong friends, had a blast with some of my existing buds, learned a lot about drinking and room crawling (kind of the hard way, I'm afraid!), got great feedback on my products and got home again safe and sound! What more could you want? Thanks Otto and Baby Doe for all the work you do to make Tiki Oasis a fantastic getaway for us Tiki Freaks!

It was my first ever Tiki Oasis. It was something I'd been wanting to do for the last two years, and I'm a little saddened that I didn't know about it when it was in Palm Springs, but nonetheless, it was awesome! I had a blast, shopping, watching all the cool bands, and doing my first ever room crawls. It was an experience That I'll hold onto for many years. So thanks so much to Otto and Baby Doe. And thanks to all the new friends I made that made my experience unforgetable and willing to help the new guy around!

I want to add my thanks to Otto, Baby Doe, and all the other fantastic Tiki peeps I met over this weekend! This Oasis has blown the others out of the water and I can't wait to see what goodies you all have in store for us next year!
After being introduced to so many giants in the Tiki community this weekend I feel like this was my 'debut'... I guess I'd better step it up and start posting on TC instead of being a quiet observer like I have for the past 5 years. Look my post count is already growing! Yay!
