always being added, some you won't know about until you

SONORAN HARMONY "OPEN HOUSE"
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 "Open House" on Wednesday, October
11th in the Junior Ballroom of the Embassy Suites Hotel. The event
will start at approximately 7:00 pm and will end at 9:30 pm. The
event will be a signing event with Master Carver Peter Calvesbert.
Harmony will have a special figurine for purchase during this 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 can be purchased for $25 and is limited to one per family attending
the "Open House" event.
"Picnic with Pete"
at the lunch on Friday will have an extra special opportunity to
participate in an auction! The auction will be for a large
Longaberger picnic basket that contains a prototype of one of the
HK/Longaberger collaborations by Sherman Drackett. In addition, the
auction includes a special "Lunch for
Two." The winning bidder will have the honor of a
private lunch with Peter Calvesbert on Saturday. The luncheon will
take place in a private room in the hotel. The winning bidder will
be able to order their special lunch where the hotel staff will
serve the two of you.
This is a
great opportunity to have Pete sign some of your personal pieces. In
order to accommodate all collectors, each attendee will be limited
to five (5) pieces to be signed. All of the event pieces carved by
Pete will be pre-signed, so you won't need to include those. Each
attendee will select 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.
One of our
fundraising activities is the Lucky Dip. This helps to offset the
costs of the event and also helps to keep the registration fees
lower. This highly popular game was introduced to our collectors at
Claire de Lune. Hundreds of prizes will be available for you to win
with the draw of a ticket. Your changes of winning are approximately

LIVE CHARITY AUCTION
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 have two
opportunities to obtain rare pieces: the LIVE CHARITY AUCTION and the RAFFLE
OF A LIFETIME.
attendees have an opportunity to participate in the LIVE CHARITY AUCTION on Sunday,
benefiting NAMI (the
National Alliance on Mental Illness). We currently have donations
assuring us of over 30 special items for the live auction. Checks
(payable to NAMI), cash, and VISA/MasterCard will be accepted. A
list of items will be posted prior to the auction.
obtained an outstanding mix of items with something for all
pocketbooks ranging from affordable to very valuable. Here are a few
to whet 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

astounded at the collection available for you to win in the RAFFLE OF A LIFETIME. If you
purchase a ticket, you will have a one-in-three chance to win. What

much better can it get? Each attendee can purchase one ticket at a
cost of $30. The tickets are available to attendees. The number of

HOW MANY PIECES CAN BE SIGNED?
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 will be pre-signed. You will have ample opportunity to
talk with the artists and HK founders and notables throughout the
one of the major activities for collectors is to get pieces signed
by the artists. When you register on Friday, you will be 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 allows 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 may go through the signing line again, if there is no
one still waiting, during your 30-minute signing period.
events are casual dress. However, we suggest a western style
dress for the Saturday night Hoedown, as we will have a costume
contest for the best dressed 'dude' and 'dudette' at the dinner. So,
bring your Stetson, your chaps, your boots, and stomp right in.
Gals... let your imagination be your guide, from jeans to those prim
'n proper dresses to some mighty fancy saloon garb, all are welcome.
