Since Wendy and Dan's computer is down, here are a few pictures from the crawl to hold you over.
















Wendy said this may be a future mug!
















It was a great weekend. Thank you to all the hosts that graciously opened up their homes and Marlene for organizing the event. I look forward to future crawls. Also, thank you to Dan & Wendy for your hospitality (you have the greatest collection ever seen) and to Moai Mike & Polynesian Paddy (for being other out of town guests), Jungle Trader (for the highway escort), Duane & Diana (thank you for lunch and great patio and pool), Greg (an excellent drink served but I forgot the name of the brand of rum you used), Dave & Eva (cool pad), Mark & Selena (I'll always remember your blue dog & your tiki room), Matt & Melody (great surfboard and party), Randy & Milly (I still have the killer mug), Steve & Laura (a fun time on your patio), Swanberg's, Mahalotiki.com and etc.

I'm back and here is the last day of our tiki crawl.

Thank you Duane - Psycho Tiki D for creating the crawl and Marlene - VampiressRN for caring it on.

Love you and all our tiki friends, Wend

Wendy and Dan.

Not too often do I come on and post on TC threads anymore but your actions, efforts and words make it too difficult not to post. I am a very lucky person to have become friends with so many who share the same passion for Tiki that I do. I am humbled by the thoughtfullness of our Ohana and for the wonderful Tiki Bob mug you made for me. You are the greatest hands-down.

Our very first attempt at a Sacramento get together was back on December 10, 2006. Wendy, you are correct, this would be eight years of celebrating our local embrace of sharing our homes and our collections with our community.

Through a series of emails our first gathering was born. moondog426 was the one who originally posted the thread for the first meet-up, Sacramento Day December 10, 2006:

I was brand new to collecting Tiki at the time and was eager to meet those of like mind.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=21867&forum=17&hilite=Sacramento Day

Many of the original attendees have hosted and/or attended over the years-

Dave and Eva, Brad and Melanie, Ken and Beth, Mike and Alia and Brooke.

This has grown from a one afternoon/evening event to a full blown three day extravaganza and over the years we have had the pleasure of viewing and sharing so many wonderful spaces.

In 2010 I approached Wendy Cevola, whom I considered a treasure, not only for the massive and impressive collection she and Dan had amassed, but because of her incredible talent as an artist and I asked if she would be willing to create a mug for our crawl. I had no idea what it took to make a mug and little did I know what I was asking. If you have followed this thread from the start, you will see the result of Wendy's creativy since she began making our crawl mugs, which incidently has been done for the past four years. Not that Wendy wasn't making Tiki sculpts before this...Dan's collection has many unique one-of-a-kind items made long before Wendy started making our crawl mugs (which is why I thought it would be so easy for Wendy to make us a mug)!

After a six year run of organizing the local event, I felt it was time to hand off the mantle to someone else. Fortunately for our local Ohana, Marelene took up the torch and has expanded and improved this event and for this I am truly grateful, not only that Marlene took charge, but that it continued on.

So I was very humbled last Saturday night when I attend the crawl for the first time in two years. At Matt and Melody's house I was presented the mug Wendy made for me along with a copy of a Minnie's menu signed by the guests who attended this years crawl with well wishes and warm thoughts.

I want to express my appreciation to everyone who has attended or hosted our local event from the inception through this year and beyond. We have always been able to rely upon our local Ohana to come through with specatacular showcasing, some pretty incredible shows and of course, tasty food and drink for the guests. Mahalos to you all.

And it might seem it goes without saying, but I cannot thank Wendy, Dan or Marlene enough for all they have done to contribute to our Ohana and these events. You are very special people in my and I cherish being able to call you my friends!

Aloha,

Pyscho Tiki D


Duane I am truly touched and thank you for all the information. Wendy

Hey, I found the moai that many of us saw on our way to Mark and Selena's house.

http://islandheritage.org/wordpress/?page_id=1872
According to the website "Part of an installation called Annunaki Watch (A Fire Inside), the moai was created by sculptor Matthew Welter of Timeless Sculptures for Burning Man 2013."



Check out this page from his website - it has photos of both the Moai and the Egyptian sculptures at Burning Man with fire burning inside!

Very kind sentiments from Duane...we are truly blessed to have all our Tiki Ohana. I hear Ken was also an implementer of the crawl back in the day so big kudos to you too Ken. Indeed we are always in awe of the talented Wendy for the fabulous Tiki creations she makes.

Cool post Mike!!!
