From Swanky and Benzart
Hey folks,
We are trying to pick a date for Coon Tiki next year in Townsend, TN. We are wanting May, but are asking for your opinions on the date.

Would you be more likely or less likely to attend if it were on Memorial Day weekend, as opposed to the weekend before? Check it
out on

I'll be there regardless of the dates. If it's after May 22nd I have another three weeks of vacation time to play with, but I'll be there come hell or high water.

Rentals might be a little cheaper the week before, but, if more people would show up on Memorial Day weekend, that's the ticket!

Man the last one was GREAT!
And I'm not a carver.
So if I can make it I will.
Can't just take off like I used to.

Trevor has been driving me crazy about when am I going to send him to that carving class. If you do Coon Tiki again, the two of us will be there. I'll be drinking, he will be carving.

Memorial Day weekend allows for more options. Do the class and have time left to do other things in the area for a day. The Hideaway is a happy host to the peeps who show up. Maybe we do a nice luau as part of the end of it at our house or something. We can see what attendees want to do. Folks might rather go over to Gatlinburg or some other thing.

Our house to Nawger Nob is about 45 minutes. If you have a camper, there is a fantastic RV park near there. One of the top rated in the country. Lots of options for cabin rentals.

School finishes up May 25, so I'll be free to travel after that. If it's Memorial weekend, we're in! Hope to see y'all there. I'll watch to keep updated.

I am not into carving, this will be Trevor's birthday present. He would be interested in most any carving, but he would prefer wood or stone, probably. I don't think he has many tools at this point. What should he get before then? Ultimately, he would like to be able to carve really tall Moais, but he needs a starting point. I plan to just enjoy the results of his carving
