It'll be a scramble for tickets this year....

Got an email from our bandleader Robin with details of the upcoming event. The old saying is so true, you know the one, "Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone". Joni Mitchell, the cool & wise one. Oh well, you know what I'm saying. 70s Reunion I was attended by a little over 600, Reunion II saw about 860, but it was in the Ilikai Pacific Ballroom the third largest ballroom in Hawaii. The move to Ala Moana to a smaller room couldn't be helped due to the change in the Ilikai ownership & long range plans of management. Sometimes you just gotta do the best you can with the cards you've been dealt with. No doubt Candy & staff will do another bang up job to make use of every inch of space that is available at the Ala Moana Hotel. The seating and setup will be a little different than the previous year so be quick to make your reservations as seats are limited. March 1st is the first day for ticket sales and there are already a bunch of people who have requested blocks of tickets. So this year make it a point to get those tickets early. Just like my cool high school Japanese language teacher once said, "I can wait but time won't". It's gonna be real cool so don't forget to get your tickets early this year. Here's some detail of the seating & stuff from our bandleader Robin.


Seating is limited so reservations will be a must. These are the type of tables that are available in the main Hibiscus Ballroom (seating for 580).

Tables of 14 - 29 (406 people)
Tables of 20 - 6 (120 people)
Table of 12 - 1 (12 people)
Tables of 6 - 7 (42 people)

There will be additional tables outside of the ballroom and in the Garden Lanai. These would be considered open seating as well as SRO (standing room only). Tickets will be available for sale March 1, 2006. In addition, Candy has informed me that all the band tables will be outside of the main ballroom since they will have to maximize the paying attendance in the main ballroom. As people filter out throughout the night and as seat/tables become available in the main ballroom, those who have open seating and or are in the SRO mode can move into the main ballroom.

Should you have any questions regarding this event, please feel free to call or email me.
