To all my carving friends...Cocoa beach is having a tiki carve off with $5000 to the best carvers april 21st. Here is a link at the bottom to the tiki carvers invitational Registration form. Details
The Visit Space Coast Tiki Carver Invitational is a 2 day tiki event with music from WRRJ 89.7FM, vendors and live world class carving hosted by the City of Cocoa Beach - Government. Friday night we start with a kick off party @ Mai Tiki Market. Live Tiki and Art show with Tiki exotica bands, mixed Mai Tai's from the legendary The Straw Hat Barmen, Soflo V-Dubs club and tiki themed vendors.
Saturday is the main event. With $5,000 in cash to the best carvers. We have invited the most well known tiki carvers in the country to compete against each other in an 8 hour carve off. Finished or not, once the time is up, the competition has ended and judging will begin. There will be a silent tiki auction during the event and a Beach Luau sponsored by Coconuts On the Beach. It will be fun for the whole family!
Do you or someone you know, have what it takes to be in this event?
For more information contact The Beachside Resident.

I would love to jump across the country to be a part of this. TSA rules may be possibly monkey wrenching my plans. Anyone else that is considering flying in to get a piece of this pie beware. Check with your airline to make sure. They will snag your chainsaw even if it's empty of fuel or oil.

Yay! The general public will be introduced and treated to REAL cocktails from this outstanding bar team.

And oh yeah, the carving event sounds pretty cool too, lol...

I had to miss this due to a sudden home repair - broken water heater. Saved a ton of money by doing it myself though...

From the photos I've seen so far, the tiki carvers were definitely busy under the time limit.

George, did your Strawhat Barmen have a good time, and what drinks did you serve? And did you get any comments from the general public?

Wish I could have been there with my missus in tow!

Good job.
You make us proud.
They all look good.
How many carvers were there?
Did you bring your own log?
Got any more pics?

Very cool!

Wish we had more carving events like this up here. Though, I get the feeling all you'd end up with is a bunch of eagles, bears, or a combination of both. We do have an annual ice carving contest. I wonder what it would take to convince someone to submit an ice tiki.

Just went back to email from last week and saw that I missed a flyer which George posted a few days ago with the drinks menu. Some GREAT choices with interesting backstories on the menu. While I didn't recognize the Cocolada, it does sound delicious. Hope you don't mind me posting the flyer here.

Not a prob. The Cocolada is a take on the Pina Colada with coconut milk/sweetened condensed milk in place of the coconut cream. There was a pretty good turnout considering the lack of lead time we had in promoting the event. Still would have loved to seen more of the local folks there, but it seems like the only way to get them to leave their houses is to throw an event at a theme park.

Will have to try that! I non-local was looking forward to going, theme park or not, lol, but then the water heater came up. I hope I'm not the only person to loves road trips. Live carving, beach location, friends, and great cocktails, can't say no to that!

CrazyCapizzi.... in my humble opinion you were robbed. Your tiki far outshines the other three in artistry, finish and overall tikiness..... If I walked into a shop, yours would be the only one that I would even consider tell me shes downloading a fil if I walked into a shop, yours would be the only one that I would even consider .Again, in my opinion, Eds entry isnt even a tiki.... sorry bro...😲😲😲

Well the competitors voted for each other... So some people admittedly voted for a lesser tiki thinking it would give them an upper hand to sway the vote in their direction. It would be in bad taste for me to say i got robbed so i figured i would just let the pictures do the talking.
