We have been here for a few hours and already we have had a blast. We spent a relaxing time in the pool and met up with one friend after another and I finally got to meet CY. Tomorrow will be crazy fun. Say hi if you see us, Wendy-danlovestikis

Important last minute information************************************

As an Extra Bonus for people staying on grounds only................................

The main Building has been closed for the last week to re-paint and spruce up the pool area for the event so the building has been vacant,and since there is know one checking out..........

The Travel Lodge will allow early check-in on Friday starting at 10a.m..................this should help with no bottlenecking of people waiting in line.


-------------------- i called today to ask about early check in & they said to call back friday morning

Rory we loved your Caliente Event. It was more fun than we could have imagined. We hope to be able to attend every year.

Here are some photos of our fun hook-ups. This is like a meet and greet if you haven't tied the names to faces in the past. Cheers, Wendy and Dan

Dan and I celebrating our 34 wedding anniversary with this trip to Caliente.


A bunch of us found each other at the Palm Springs Street Fair on Thursday. This is Tiki Bob and Dan.


Joanne with a cute dog. I'm not sure who is cuter!


Dawn Fraizer - Sophista-tiki and KikivonTiki Karrol Baker with Dan. It was really nice to have such a peaceful visit before the mad party began.


Max, Wendy and my newest friend Tavarua Tiki.


Atomic Chick - Caren with her new Elvis Bob mug.


Wendy with Atomic Tiki Punk, I've got his face memorized so I'd know him anywhere.


hang10tiki and Eric October with all of Eric's wonderful art.


GoGo and Danny two of the dearest people you could ever meet. We appreciate having them as friends and their beautiful ceramics in our collection.



Wendy and Tiki G. He owns the first topless girl in red skirt that I made in clay. After I sent it off to him I decided to make the Zombie Torch.


For my anniversary gift Dan and I picked out this wonderful painting of The Place of Refuge by Amy Swenson. We made a trip there and thought her painting brought back wonderful memories.


I got to meet CY. He's posted on my thread and look at all the wonderful creative tikis he carved and brought down from Portland Oregon. We just talked to him he is close by on his trek home but alas he's not dropping by.


bacvtech and Mary live very close to us and we had more fun visits at their booth.


Crazy Al and Dan (who scored another great mug)


MadDogMike and Wendy. He is the sweetheart that you all think he is. It's great that he has two grandchildren who can carry on the sweetness.


Mr. and Mrs. Elroy Art of Portland Oregon with John Moulder in the middle. John's making wonderful mugs. We got one of his new Sneaky Tikis.


Wendy, Jama, Joanne just out having a great time.


Wendy with Sabu the Coconut Boy.


I was sad that I missed taking a photo of every person there but I'll steal a few when they get posted here.

I need a Rory photo. He needs his voice to return from Frog Island.

Thank you Rory and everyone who came up to meet us. We had a blast. Cheers again, Wendy and Dan

Thank you to everyone who came out to Palm Springs to enjoy the weekend at out little Tiki Event, I couldn't be happier with the Guest selection ,Vendors,Entertainment,Sponsors and the Employees at the Travel Lodge.

there truly was a family feel to the show with almost no posers in the mix.

If it stayed like this next year i would be 100% satisfied.

It was so strange to be back to the hotel this morning and just see fragments of the Event left and watching the stage being taken away.

Thank you to everyone for making the end result so positive and enjoyable.



(Finding the Set list from Sonny Moon and the Martini Kings sitting on the grass this morning seemed like finding part of Tiki History already)

Mel and I had a fantastic time at this event.



Great friends (I finally got to meet a handful of peeps in person), great Palm Springs vibe and weather, great entertainment, shopping, room crawls...and a great host aka Wildsville man (Rory) who constantly and graciously gave a few moments of his time whenever our paths crossed to ask me if everything was okay and was I having a great time - little moments like this add enormous value to the experience. To sum it all up this event is the result of tons of hard-work and determination. Thank You Rory.

I consider myself very lucky to have experienced Tiki Caliente 4 firsthand and to have shared it with my tiki friends.

Applause, applause, applause! G
