ANOTHER BIG DAY
To encourage early registration for PASSPORT TO THE KINGDOM a special Early Bird figurine was available. If you registered by March 16, 2009, you will receive the Early Bird figurine, Another Big Day, at no cost. A minimum $100 deposit must have been made by March 16, 2009, with the balance paid by June 1, 2009.
As an attendee of PASSPORT TO THE KINGDOM, you will receive the delightful box figurine, Safe Journey, carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert. Peter told HOP that he wanted to do something special this year for the convention, so we collaborated with him to come up with this year's Version 1 and Version 2 pieces.
Our "Version 1" event figurine is Safe Journey, a box beautifully depicting a male Mallard duck embracing his partner as he prepares to depart on a journey. He is complete with his suitcase and passport. Peter has created a true rendition of the male and female Mallard in both carving and coloring.
This piece is included in your registration package. This year attendees are allowed to purchase a second Safe Journey, if desired. You can order this additional Safe Journey online through our OPTIONS ORDER FORM; ordering deadline is August 31, 2009.
ACROSS THE POND
Our "Version 2" figurine, Across The Pond, is designed to be used as a base for Safe Journey, or it can be used alone. It is a perfect companion to the event figurine that Collectors receive as part of their registration. Peter carved the reeds filled with various creatures that may be found in or around the pond where the mallards might live. The interior is a reminder of where the event is being hosted, with a caricature of Pete as a "Rhode Island Red" chicken.
Across The Pond is not a box as there is no lid. You could even use your Across The Pond figurine for holding paper clips or for storing your loose change. Every attendee (Collector or Associate) has the right to purchase up to two Across The Pond figurines. When Safe Journey is placed into Across The Pond, you will have a very special display never before seen in "Harmony Kingdom" land. You can order Across The Pond online through our OPTIONS ORDER FORM; ordering deadline is August 31, 2009.
Step back in time and picture the colonial period of American history. Wigs were in fashion and Peter certainly doesn't want to be left out. Peter and Andrea Calvesbert are coming to Newport. To help raise money for Andrea's trip, Peter produced this colonial period version of himself. HOP is assisting Peter by selling this fabulous addition to our event for him.
Every attendee—whether a Collector or an Associate—can order up to two Patriot Pete pendants. The cost is $25 each. You must pay in advance and you will receive your piece(s) when you check in at the convention. You can order Patriot Pete online through our OPTIONS ORDER FORM; ordering deadline is August 31, 2009.
As a Thank You to us for helping support his family trip, Peter is giving special "red coat" color versions of the pendant to 10 lucky purchasers. The drawings will be held Sunday morning.
Step back in time one more time, for Andrea! Peter Calvesbert carved another pendant, this time featuring his wife during the colonial period of American history.
This time this pendant will be a gift following the Breakfast Buffet on Sunday. With a completed survey about your event experience, you'll receive this Dame Andrea pendant. We hope that you enjoyed your time in Newport and we will appreciate all feedback on your experience. We aim to make our next event even better!
You can order an additional Dame Andrea pendant online through our OPTIONS ORDER FORM; ordering deadline is August 31, 2009.
On Thursday evening there is an Optional Outing—a Ghost Walk through Newport. Each person who signs up for the tour receives the special red (cooked) lobster pendant, Ready To Eat.
A brown (fresh) lobster pendant, Mr. Lobstaa, is available from Atlantic Kingdom Addicts for $25. In true HK humor, these delightful lobster pendants depict a lobster sporting its bib, ready to dine on its favorite food—a picture of Pete. These images are of Mr. Lobstaa.
Additional pendants can be ordered online through our OPTIONS ORDER FORM; ordering deadline is August 31, 2009.
SAINT OR SINNER
For the Paint-Your-Own this year, attendees will be doing their best at painting an unpainted version of Saint or Sinner. Usually the Paint-Your-Own version is like the original version in staining, but just without the addition of the hand-painting that is added after the staining. This year we are asking for a change. The Paint-Your-Own version of Saint or Sinner will be stained BLACK instead of brown. This will certainly add to the variations display in your cabinet. The image here is a grayscale version of the regular piece. The actual Paint-Your-Own piece will vary slightly from this image.
All attendees get one Paint-Your-Own figurine with your registration (even associates). If you wish to paint the one you receive, but also have an unpainted version, you can still order an extra piece. If you have already sent in your order for one, you can order an additional unpainted Saint or Sinner figurine online through our OPTIONS ORDER FORM; ordering deadline is August 31, 2009.
Two painters will win an event prototype for the "best" Paint-Your-Own. One winner will be selected by Peter Calvesbert and Lisa Yashon. The attendees voting at the Halloween Party will select the second winner.
