Well, it’s getting closer to May 20 -- The big day for our annual Hui Wharram. I have refrained from sending too many emails; however, I would like to remind everyone that it really helps to have an attendance count to better prepare. The Web page on Facebook does work, but due to my ‘tech’ deficiencies it is a bit clunky. Maybe some of our Wharram communities members could help establish a simpler means to collaborate in the future.
So far: I have had indications that there will,be a number of Wharrams, and perhaps a few other multihull designs present. Pahi 31, Nari Mk V, Tiki 31, Tiki 21, (2 or maybe 3), Tangarhoa (?), and hopefully others. (if you can bring your boat(s)).
There are a few things I would like to share -- this year we thought it would be nice to have a designed souvenir T shirt -- so please check these out at www.facebook.com/huiwharram,
and or simply contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com if you like. They come in standard short sleeve T shirt for under $15, and long sleeve ‘performance’ SPF #50 almost twice that. Both are Haines. The deadline is May 1st. in order to have them printed and delivered to the Hui Wharram N. Ft. Myers by May 20.
Accommodations -- the ‘Official’ Hotel is the Best Western Waterfront at our venue site. Special rate is $95 per night (really nice rooms views overlooking Hui Wharram - plus a ‘free’ breakfast at IHOP - next door) Ask about the vouchers for IHOP when checking in. There are a number of other motels from Motel 6 to Red Roof Inn within walking distance. There will be parking both at the North Shore Park and Best Western.
are also on the www.facebook.com/huiwharram
page and or Google North Shore Park, N. Ft. Myers Florida. My phone number is 309-212-1161
Saturday night Hui Wharram ‘awards dinner’ -- Important to let us know how many diners we will have at The Three Fishermen’s Restaurant (at the venue over looking the event - with bar) -- at this point we hope to have enough people to warrant a buffet with three different main entrée’s. This should be under $20.00. Please email as soon as you can in order to help us plan.
