Viewing of CostumesSo that is the email I got from TRIBE last night, the website has not been updated with those new details so if you were expecting the new website to be up on Monday like me, it appears that we have another week to wait again as it's Monday the 28th that the new site will be up.
You are invited to view the costumes which will be on display for one week at the Sky View Lounge, Cascadia Hotel on the following days:
Monday 21st to Friday 25th Aug. 2006 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
Saturday 26th - 12noon to 6pm
Website – www.carnivaltribe.com
Our website will launch on Monday 28th August and costume prices and down payment amounts will be posted by Wednesday 30th August 2006.
Tribe Loyalty Card (TLC) Distribution
2006 Masqueraders who have not yet collected their TLC can pick them up at Cascadia Hotel from
Monday 21st to Thursday 24th August, 5:00pm – 8:00pm.
Thursday 24th August is the FINAL DAY to pick up your TLC cards!
2006 masqueraders residing overseas must send their information by Tuesday 22nd August in order to obtain their TLC Code. A copy of a valid picture ID should be emailed to email@example.com or faxed (with email address attached) to 1-868-625-6800.
We are currently processing all the applications which have already been emailed or faxed to us, and we will be sending you your TLC soon.
We are making every effort to accommodate 2005 masqueraders who were unable to return and play with us in 2006. Therefore we are asking such masqueraders to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact information. (Stating the section you played in 2005 will assist us in expediting your request.) Costume packages will be allocated on a “first come, first serve” basis. You will be contacted via e-mail with information regarding your TLC process.
Please keep posted to the website for information regarding your registration process.
Registration will begin in early September for TLC Masqueraders only. Dates and times will be posted on the website from Monday 28th August 2006.
What I find interesting is that after all this we still have to wait until the 30th of August to find out prices and downpayment amounts? steups! If anyone knows the prices email meh ! email@example.com. I already hear the downpayment will be $900.00 if you did not know before.
Well I guess they are really being generous for masqueraders who might be waiting to see what Island People has to offer. Maybe they don't want us signing up in two bands so they are giving us enough time to check out the competition before staking a claim in either band.Or maybe they are not lettting anything out of the bag until AFTER Island People has launched for a reason, hmm, I wonder why? I do have to say thanks to TRIBE though, thanks for waiting until after month end to start registration!
Oh, and here is another interesting piece of information that I read in the Newsday yesterday; Peter Elias and Calvin French's section is Jean and Dinah. Now, this is news to me since I am sure I read on another website that Peter Elias will be designing for Pulse 8, who will be having their official launch on September 3rd at Zen.
