Sorry about the lack of posts over the last month and a half, but I have just recently completed three years of research for my newest seminar. Last month I literally traveled coast to coast researching University Archive Collections in San Diego and Central Florida pulling together my latest presentation.
(For the hardcore tikiphiles out there, they should know the tiki connection to Shamu and Punchy)
There have been several previous seminars about the history of Polynesian Pop in San Diego, but this one will be all new material, never before seen plans, blueprints, stories and interviews. And for theme park fans, I will also be showcasing the history and development of Seaworld and the heavy Polynesian influence that park exhibited in its early years.
I'm still working on a schedule and venue for this event, so stay tuned. I expect to present it later this year in the late fall or winter 2012.
