The Great Moose Race & Auction
Not only does this annual tradition raise $$ for charity, it also spotlights parrothead creativity, and gets the crowd cheering. Giant wood-carved game pieces will be auctioned off on Friday then decorated by the highest bidders before the "race" on Saturday.
Join us at The Great Moose Auction on Friday in the Grand Ballroom at 8:30pm. Ten moose will be auctioned off to individuals and clubs/groups. Will you have one of the high bids? If yes, decoration is up next. Basic supplies will be provided but you can use anything from your suitcase (or a local store) - think faux fur, tropical embellishments, maybe camouflage.
Gather again on Saturday in the Grand Ballroom for The Great Moose Race (after Improv which starts at 11:30am). Bring your cheering squad, bet on your favorite moose or your favorite jockey, and let the games begin! Jockey's will roll giant dice and race towards the finish line. Awards will go to race winners and of course, to the best "rack."
This annual tradition is an event not to be missed! Groups of two or more are invited to sign-up at the registration desk on Thursday night or Friday before 4pm. At 5pm on Friday, each group will be given an "improv bag" which will include a Buffett song (on CD), a copy of the lyrics, a list of available improv props (you won't have these until you're on stage), construction paper, and some markers. Groups will then prepare a skit to act out the selected song. Once on stage (11:30am on Saturday in the Grand Ballroom), groups will entertain the crowd with the prepared skit accented by the bevvy of stage props.
What's all this 'tiki time' business? Pack your sheets phriends, it's toga time!
Dance parties are always more fun in costume so rifle through your closets, scan the linen department at your favorite store, or find some festive fabric. Search for the tiki-est sheets or fabric you can, then spin around, and wrap yourself toga style. Who says only Greeks and Romans wear togas? At convention, togas are for tiki gods!!! Below you’ll find instructions on how to make a toga from a sheet.
How to make a Toga from a sheet.
1. Take the corner of a top sheet in one hand. Leave about 6-8" (15 - 20 cm) to spare. Hold in front of the top of one of your shoulders.
2. Drape the sheet snugly across your chest. Tuck it under the opposite (right) arm.
3. Shorten if necessary. If the toga is too long for you, (i.e., you're tripping over it), adjust its length. Lay the sheet down and fold one edge over by six inches (15 cm) or so, and try again. Keep adjusting until you get the right length, which is at the knee.
4. Wrap the toga around your back. Tuck it under the left arm and once more around the front of your chest.
5. Bring up the second corner. After bringing it across your chest, under your right arm the second time and around your back, bring the second corner up over your back. Secure the two ends with a broach, pin, or simple knot.
6. Secure the layers tightly. Use a couple of hidden safety pins inside the toga. Try to make sure they aren't in an uncomfortable position.
7. Most importantly don't get stressed about not being able to get anything right! You're supposed to have fun!
TABLE CENTERPIECE CONTEST (using plants) !!!
Who says Parrotheads can’t go green. Instead of throw-away centerpieces for the ballroom tables we’d like you to create one using live plants. Knowing how “enthusiastic” you can get, here are some guidelines:
1. The centerpiece should be mostly plants (nothing illegal, please!).
2. Keep the size to approximately 12 x 12 x 12 (many people must sit at every table).
3. All decorative items should be LATEX free.
4. It cannot leak water (or other fluids).
5. No loose sand, glitter or confetti outside of the plant container.
6. No lit candles.
All centerpieces will go into a silent auction (unless specified otherwise) and the proceeds will go to the convention charities. The bidding will take place between 8 AM and 8:30 PM Saturday.
There will be prizes for “most expensive” centerpiece and for the Parrothead’s choice (ballots will be in the goodie bags). The winners of the auctions will have to remove their centerpieces that night.
To participate contact Donna Lorrain at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE DUVAL CRAWL (our version of the door contest)
New England Parrothead Conventioneers can enjoy a new variation on the Door Decorating Contest. This year's theme is the Duval Crawl. Attendees can register the Key West bar or restaurant of their choice upon arrival at the convention registration desk. Using the hotel's guidelines (which will be sent out soon), you may decorate your room entrance to welcome visitors on Saturday afternoon. Contestants are encouraged to bribe visitors for their votes with some type of refreshment or snack from their Key West landmark. Starting at noon on Saturday, conventioneers can pick up a "map" of Duval Street showing the locations for the Duval Crawl. Votes can be turned in at the registration desk. Gold, Silver and Bronze medal winners will be announced Saturday night! Who says you have to travel 1500 miles to enjoy the Duval Crawl?
TIKI TAILGATE LOUNGE
(no hurricanes allowed)
Proud of your plate?
Bring a color photo copy, photo (large) or likeness (drawing, etc.) of your Buffett-related license plate to display on the walls of our Tiki Tailgate Lounge! We’ll also have a display area for concert photos, so bring your best (make copies, they may disappear) to post for all to see.
Got a fun tailgate game?
We’ll be recreating the tailgate experience in our lounge. We’ll feature some of your favorite tailgate games such as ladder ball, corn hole, coconut bowling and more. Do you have any other unique tailgate games or activities you’d like to share or show off? If so, please contact Susan DeLong at email@example.com for details.
