Okay, here’s a shameless plug! How about booking a band for the SEMINI? Hrmmmm
Just a thought. And I HAAPpen to know a great one. Hot As A Pepper! Yes, that’s my band, which you can find at www.HotAsAPepper.com.
Maybe the style of music would be a bit much for the group? Fun and funky, rock, blues, disco, country, beach and more! Something you can dance to!
Seriously though, Hot As A Pepper would love to get booked into venues in the Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, Patriots Point area. Any club, bar, restaurant, and for just about anything, such as a party, corporate event, wedding reception or anywhere fun live entertainment is needed!
For all the years that I have been going to the southern mini county hunter conventions, there has always been a prize table. Originally at the 3M, or MMM, or whatever you want to call it, and then at the SEMINI. I was told this is tradition, so we have stuck with it.
It’s kind of cool to see what people bring, and always a challenge to find just the right thing to put on that table. We always try to give something that is unique to the region, so those who visit will find a little something different than what they get at home, though, in a pinch we have gone for a more “commercial” product.
Items that have been on the table include:
Handmade quilts and afghans – completely incredible artistic creations.
Art – some purchased, some made.
Beer & wine – There’s quite a number of people who exchange micro-brews and wines.
Food items, chocolates, candies, etc.
Map books, log books.
Coax, dacron / nylon rope, antenna resonators, etc.
World clocks and other ham radio related gadgets.
Tools (you travel in a car, everyone needs a tool now and again).
Oh it doesn’t stop there by any means… There have even been a few funny gifts.
I received an email today though that made me think – KB0BA / N0XYL stated that number of county hunters are in fact diabetic and alternatives to foods and alcohol may be a great idea!
If you remember some great gifts of the past, please reply here!
