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. If it’s you and your spouse it is (+1) and if you come with 2 friends it is +2. You’re counted automatically. So please do not say +2 if it is just you and a friend. Let us know if you’re racing, working, volunteering, spectating, etc.

It’s a very popular (and fun) gathering, and unfortunately each year people who register don’t show up because of prior commitments. When that happens, people who really want to come can’t get in. So PLEASE, only RSVP w your group if you are relatively certain you’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. We start the raffle at about 5:30 pm and you have to be present to win. By the way, coming in at 5:20pm 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,) or email me Thanks!

Looking forward to seeing you all on the Big Island. PS. We will try not to run out of beer at 5 PM.

We're taking up a collection for beer money. Apparently one keg just didn't get it done. Who Knew?
