another spectacular triumph by the FOM! i never thought I could be happy drinking a cocktail in the rain now I know better!

almost forgot, love the custom trader vics glass we got at check in

massive aloha spirit and the best location for a tiki event that exists

a couple requests. MORE AWESOME NAVY GROG in the bar! get those guys in the lab coats working on weather control instead of purple cocktails

see you in 2012

Zonker, thank you for participating in the F.O.M. Test Labs human subject tests in Lake George this past weekend. By the way, the Purple Lagoon contains acai juice so it is possibly the healthiest cocktail in existence. The Labs are working on weather control as well but obviously the technology needs some work. Follow their progress at http://facebook.com/fomtestlabs

And thank you for being positive about the weather on Friday, all that aloha spirit surely helped to improve the forecast on Saturday and pushed several storm cells south of The Tiki.

I am totally with you on the grog, Ahu knocked that one out of the park. We couldn't make enough of it.

See you next June.

Ohana was amazing, but the real question - what is the recipe for the painkiller they made on the room crawl? OMG I am dreaming of it still! Does anyone have the info?

Apologies about the TV's glassware.

We were under-shipped a couple of cartons, so that kind of became a first-come, first-serve thing. If its any consolation, I missed out on them too!

Can't express how grateful I am to everyone, and especially to the weather gods for re-directing the storms on Saturday. We literally had storm cells to the East & West, while the Tiki Resort remained dry and sunny... the power of Aloha? I think it was!!!

Mahalo everyone!! Get those pictures up!! I actually got to see & enjoy a LOT of the event this year (Thanks to all our great volunteers!) but I still missed a ton, so I need to live vicariously through your photos! more more more!!!

Amazing job by everyone who worked to make Ohana such a fantastic event! Big mahalos to you all! Such a good time was had by all, and next year seems soooo far away!

Here are some of our photos -

who knew that purple drank could be tiki?

thanks again to bargoyle and the crowds of people who made this happen.

i think it is a testament to this event that the owners of the Tiki make it MORE tiki every year!

Purple drank is healthy and full of antioxidants.

I'm gonna sleep for a week.

Savage Patty and I had such a great time! I hope the F.O.M. test labs get that time travel thingy down so I can just jump from one Ohana to the next.

Thanks Bargoyle and all the other peeps for making this event so special.

Miss Pahupahu has a good question - did dcman do anything different in his painkiller recipe from what was in the first Ohana magazine?

Mooers is completely insane. Fantasy Island and the Mod Squad were right on.

The room crawls were perfect. Professor Hummingflower may be approaching "legend" status in his mixology.

The Navy Grog and Meihana were awesome. One dollar Pabsts - Oh yeah...

Hinano Paul, Granite Tiki and I are going to start a new band and move into a house made of beer cans.

Lake Surfer and Rain - Mahalo for the amazing artwork. You guys are great artists.

The bowling was brilliant. I've never seen so many happy people in the same place at the same time.

9th Wave - fabulous - even better acoustic by the pool with the gogo dancers making the scene.

Waitiki was so right on - the Mayor was on FIRE - the whole band - perfection.

Jet Sterling - a dapper silken voice tying it all together.

Velveteen Lounge saved everyone's night and day with the grilled spam sandwiches. EPIC!

Great artwork everywhere.

I dropped Bargoyle into the dunk tank on the 5th throw - Hinano Paul got him on the next throw.

But for me - the highlight of the weekend was Bamboo Saxotica and Miss Suzanne doing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" to a packed house. There were a few moments in that tune I felt like a 10 year old in the middle of a 3 ring circus. EPIC!!!

Great to see old friends and make some new ones and so many things I'm thankful for - not the least of which is safe journeys driving up there and back.

Rugby Matt - loved the cigar yesterday in Asheville. Mahalo.
