You won't want to miss all the activities that are planned.

 
SONORAN HARMONY "OPEN HOUSE"

The local HK collectors club in Phoenix, Sonoran Harmony, wants to welcome all of the visitors to their part of the world. Sonoran Harmony has teamed up with Mazar Bazaar to cordially invite you to their Plop Along by David Lawrence"Open House" on Wednesday, October 11th, in the Junior Ballroom of the Embassy Suites Hotel. The event started at approximately 7:00 pm and ended at 9:30 pm. The event was a signing event with Master Carver Peter Calvesbert.

Sonoran Harmony had a special figurine for purchase during the event. Plop Along is a darling gun slinger frog by Master Carver David Lawrence. He is the brother to HOP Along, a Sedona tour attendees gift, and sports a brown hat. Plop Along could have been purchased for $25 and was limited to one per family attending the "Open House" event.

 
"Picnic with Pete"

Attendees at the lunch on Friday had an extra special opportunity to participate in an auction! The auction was for a large Longaberger picnic basket that contains a prototype of one of the HK/Longaberger collaborations by Sherman Drackett. In addition, the auction included a special "Lunch for Two." The winning bidder had the honor of a private lunch with Peter Calvesbert on Saturday. The luncheon took place in a private room in the hotel. The winning bidder was able to order their special lunch where the hotel staff served the two of you.
 

ARTIST SIGNINGS

This was a great opportunity to have Pete sign some of your personal pieces. In order to accommodate all collectors, each attendee was limited to five (5) pieces to be signed. All of the event pieces carved by Pete were be pre-signed. Each attendee selected a 30–minute signing time slot. Provided everyone in the time slot has had their pieces signed, you may go through the line a second time.
 

LUCKY DIP

One of our fundraising activities was the Lucky Dip. This helped to offset the costs of the event and also helped to keep the registration fees lower. This highly popular game was introduced to our collectors at Clair de Lune 2000. Hundreds of prizes were be available for you to win with the draw of a ticket. Your chances of winning are approximately one-in-three.

In order to assist us in obtaining the number of prizes needed, were looking for donations from our attendees. We had the support of Harmony Ball Company as well as dealers, and other sources. All donors were recognized in the Event Program. Donations must have been shipped to arrive no later than August 15, 2006.
 

LIVE CHARITY AUCTION

In addition to just having fun, HOP had two major objectives for this convention: provide opportunities for collectors to obtain rare pieces; and to give back to the communities through charitable fundraising. At the same time, we strive to provide opportunities to one and all, regardless of the depth of your pockets. We had two opportunities to obtain rare pieces: the LIVE CHARITY AUCTION and the RAFFLE OF A LIFETIME.

Convention attendees had an opportunity to participate in the LIVE CHARITY AUCTION on Sunday, benefiting NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). At the time we had Head Over Heels prototypedonations assuring us of over 30 special items for the live auction. Checks (payable to NAMI), cash, and VISA/MasterCard were accepted.

We had obtained an outstanding mix of items with something for all pocketbooks ranging from affordable to very valuable. Here are a few to wet your appetite! Pete has sent us a solid body prototype of Head Over Heels without a base. Paul Frape, from the HK factory in England, sent us a solid body Holy Guacamole. And, once again Noel Wiggins has offered a one-week stay in May or June 2007, at the fabulous Zenaida Beach & Tennis Estate in lovely Anguilla, British West Indies. (Airfare is not included). There are seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms in two villas, and a guest cottage, that will accommodate up to 14 people.
 

RAFFLE OF A LIFETIME

You will be astounded at the collection available for you to win in the RAFFLE OF A LIFETIME. If you purchased a ticket, you had a one-in-three chance to win. What odds! And when you did win, you got to pick the prize you want! How much better could it get? Each attendee could purchase one ticket at a cost of $30. The tickets were available to attendees. The number of prizes available at the raffle exceeded 50 prototypes, samples, unreleased items, high cost HK figurines (like Perfect Ten and the Signature Series set of 5) and other interesting objects d'art.

When you registered at the convention, you received a complete list of the items in the raffle. This gave you two days to prioritize the items you wanted the most.
 

HOW MANY PIECES CAN BE SIGNED?

HOP is cognizant of the collectors' desire to have face-to-face time with the artists. We also know that not everyone wants to stand in a line to have the event items signed. So, Boots, Cowboy Boots, and Pistol Pete event figurines were be pre-signed. You had ample opportunity to talk with the artists, HK founders, and notables throughout the weekend.

However, one of the major activities for collectors was to get pieces signed by the artists. When you registered on Friday, you were able to select a signing ticket for your time on either Friday or Saturday afternoon; a specific half-hour period in the selected session. This ticket allowed you to have 5 items signed by Peter Calvesbert. Since the pre-signed event figurines will reduce the amount of signing to be done, you were able to go through the signing line again, if no one was still waiting, during your 30-minute signing period.
 

DRESS CODE

All events were casual dress. However, we suggest a western style dress for the Saturday night Hoedown, as we had a costume contest for the best dressed 'dude' and 'dudette' at the dinner. So hopefully, you brought your Stetson, your chaps, your boots, and stomped right in. Gals... we hope you let your imagination be your guide, from jeans to those prim 'n proper dresses to some mighty fancy saloon garb, all were welcome.
 

WHO'S WHO AT THE CORRAL

How many times have you been to an HK or other event where there are people attending that you know through the Internet and email, but don't know what they look like? HOP had the solution. We were asking people to send in photos to our registrar and you will be included in the Who's Who Yearbook. We will include your name and the state where you reside. If you approve, your email address will be included. Space will be provided for you to add other personal information, if you wish, for those for whom you would like to maintain contact after the event.
