RSVP HERE: As in the past, there are no special invites for this gathering, it's first come and serve, but eventually we will reach capacity. For those planning to attend, please register early by posting in this thread. Basically if it is you and your spouse it is (+1) and if you come with 2 friends it is +2. We will count you automatically. So please do not say +2 if it is just you and a friend.
Itâ€™s a very popular (and fun) gathering, and unfortunately each year people who register donâ€™t show up because of prior commitments. When that happens, people who really want to come cannot get in. So PLEASE, only RSVP w your group if you are relatively certain youâ€™ll be attending. Thanks in advance for your consideration.
*There will be some limitations as to who can win which prizes. Typically Pros should not win (unless it is a non-industry item) and competitors of brands can't win those items. But we will ask the crowd to assist us with the call when we are in doubt - or want to have fun. The raffle is typically around 6pm and you have to be present to win. Plus coming in just 10 minutes prior to 6pm won't help as by then the registration will be closed.
Anyone interested in contributing to the raffle prizes, please PM me (don't post, please) Thanks!
Looking forward to seeing you all on the Big Island.
