That was my basic understanding as well.

I was reading over this and I was surprised at what I was reading, so for everyone involved here is the real story.

My name is Matthew Means, I own and operate the Department of Customz with my business partner Tom Prewitt. 2 and a half years ago we met and started a business relationship with Art Snyder, the owner of Don the Beachcomber. We started by building custom table for Art that is currently in the bar at Dons. We continued to do projects with them and work on different ideas for shows that may benefit us mutually. Since the beginning Art and I believed that we should be doing a car/tiki show. Any one can go and ask Art directly who originally approached him about this idea and he will confirm it was me, Matthew Means. I am close friends with Heath, who works for Lucky thirteen, and we were sponsoring and helping lucky thirteen with many different events. Heath also felt and expressed to me he had thought that having a art/music/car/tiki event at Dons would be a great idea, and that he had been thinking about it too. Heath and I got together and decided to have the event and involve our business (Lucky 13 and Department of Customz) as sponsors of the event that I originally thought of with Art. During the creation of the show bobby(lucky 13) approached me and asked if this year(2011) the emphasis could be on his 20th anniversary party. We agreed with the mutual understanding that in the future the show would return to be Tiki Highway and the sponsors or focus could change. The show went ahead as planned, and Lucky 13 was billed as the title sponsor, not the owner of the show. During the show last year, Tom and I ran the car show portion, Heath and I planed and ran the cruise, Becky Sue (my fiance) was the curator of the art show, the long board was painted by Department of customz, and the Department of Customz built all the trophys. The name for the show itself was originally thought of by my partner Tom. This does not discount in any way the investment, hard work, and commitment that Lucky 13 made to the show last year, but remember they were only a sponsor of a show that I created. I worked hard to have them involved again this year, but unfortunately they declined.

I prefer to have people remain together, and my goal was to continue a tradition for years to come, at any time if Lucky 13 or any previous sponsors would like to be involved again they are welcome to come back and be a part of it.

Thank You for the response. This explains A lot. As I don't usually believe someone needs to explain themselves I know several people were scratching there heads and wanted clarification on the show.

Good Luck on the show and I wish you well for future events.

Well seems like that settles this. If The 2012 Event is half as good, which I am sure it will be, than this is going to be one not to miss.
Maybe we can lock this thread and continue post on the original thread here.

Tiki Teach

As you hopefully read above, many of the contributors of last years show are still involved, and the creator of the show is still involved. I loved Lucky 13s help and involvement, and wish they were involved again. If we succeed again this year we will help the VETERANS, if we fail we will pick ourselves up and try again. lets get this event focused on what it is about, HAVING FUN, and succeed or fail, I will be having fun doing it.

I agree with you.

Thank you all
Mattthew
