Arrgh!

I can’t believe it, I tried to buy tickets today for Tiki Oasis 2017 and they are already sold out?! Is this a record? 4 days!

I didn’t see any posting here, so I’m assuming everyone got their ticket the day they went on sale.

I did add my name to the waitlist, so hopefully that will work out.

It is sad to see the event that was a small party for tiki enthusiast turn into a major event attended by the mainstream general public. But I am glad that the result of all the work that the Von Stroheim Family has put into the event has resulted in increasing success!

Here is another discussion on the popularity of TO 2017

Tiki Central: Would you prefer Tiki as 'mainstream' or 'underground'?

It's also rather a shame that this forum is now completely ignored by TO it seems.
If one isn't following them on Facebook you are just out of luck to know what is going on with it.

Cryptkicker, I don't know what the Volunteer list looks like but that may be an option for tickets.

I'm pretty shocked at how it has grown over time, but I guess I shouldn't be. Apparently they had so many people sign up to be volunteers, they closed the list. And it was closed before the tickets sold out.

I lamented the abandonment of TC by Oasis last year. Not a single mention here this year either, until now. With its popularity, they obviously don't need little'ol TC anyways. I'm on the Oasis mailing list and I did not even get an email from that. Fortunately(?) I do follow it on FB, so I had a heads-up.

Wait...!?! Tiki Oasis is still going on? I thought it was gone since I didn't hear anything about it for the last couple years?!?

I think we need more themes, just 2 is just not enough. How about tiki robot dinosaur vampires with wooden legs?

Getting rooms this year was a total sh*tsh*w. First, the password wasn't there. Then the password didn't work for the first 15 minutes. Finally the password worked but it already said that Friday & Saturday were sold out. I didn't believe them and persisted and got a room. Not to mention there site crashing an hour before the scheduled tickets went on sale. You think after a decade and a half, this process could run a bit more smoothly.

Don't get me wrong, I love Oasis and appreciate all the work that Otto and all the volunteers put into it. I just figured since this site has been forgotten , it would be the perfect place to tell jokes.

See you at Oasis

I experienced the same issues trying to get a room. There were “glitches” last year for me, as well.
The conspiracy theorist in me says the process is manipulated to give certain people an advantage in procuring rooms.

OK, I'll bite: Whom do you suspect are the certain people?

Ha Ha. That was not bait and I do not know of any particular people. I wouldn’t be surprised though, if those within an inner circle were provided access to booking a room before the masses. It would suck for those individuals who have been part of TO since the beginning or for many years and who really contribute to the vitality of the scene could not get a room. Am I correct in that one or more of the smaller tiki events give previous participants first shot at rooms?

Correct - Ohana Luau at the Lake does that.

Tiki Caliente also gives previous patrons priority to hotel rooms.

As festivals and cons go it's still small and still attended by tiki fans. Likely that since ten million people live within an hour drive there are more then a few thousand fans. The town and country of other venues could hold triple the people. Or start another con in winter. Draft the business plan and recruit investors here
