PIRATES OF THE KINGDOM

The HK House of Peers, in conjunction with Harmony Kingdom, is pleased to announce a special conflagration of PIRATES of the KINGDOM in Orlando, Florida, for all dedicated marble dust addicts and their families! Mark your calendars for a fun-filled weekend of old-time camaraderie, some pirate games, plenty of good grub, and a few prize goodies for the booty chest!

The dates are April 11-13, 2008-the place is Orlando, Florida - the land of sunshine and a never-ending list of things to do! If you've never been there, you might want to add a few days to your trip to do some sightseeing and to visit the many attractions in the surrounding area. Join early-arriving mates on Wednesday, April 9, for a Welcome Reception hosted by the Harmony Florida Suncoast Collectors Club. HOP has planned optional outings on April 10 - visit our OPTIONAL OUTINGS page for details. Online registration has ended. Check for space availabllity at the event.

A fun-filled weekend is being planned for all Harmony Kingdom collectors. We will have games, artist signings, event pieces, a Swap 'n Sell, the ever-popular Lucky Dip, door prizes, raffles, and an auction for rare Harmony Kingdom pieces. We begin with an afternoon of games, artist signings, the ever-popular Lucky Dip, and a special HK slide show on Friday. That night join us for a reception and Charity Fundraiser Pirate Games Night. Saturday will feature more artist signings, the Paint-Your-Own, and Swap 'n Sell, followed by a buffet stocked with scrumptious victuals. Sunday will begin with a sit-down breakfast, followed by the exciting raffle drawings, charity auction, and awarding of event prizes.

Rocky Road (Prototype - Final version may vary)Our guests of honor will be Harmony Kingdom Artist/Master Carver Peter Calvesbert and our Artistic Director/Founder Noel Wiggins. In addition to Peter, Noel, and their families, we are pleased to announce the appearance of Lisa Yahson and ex-Harmony Ball Company staff members Sandy Auer and Bobbie Hill.

Peter has carved a wonderful piece, Rocky Road, which features an old friend, Murphy, exclusively for attendees who registered early. Our popular Rockhopper penguin is "hitching" his way on the road to Orlando, complete with special HK treasures in his backpack and his Mickey Mouse ears, ready to meet the big guy while there. Peter is bringing his family with him to enjoy the Florida sights. Artist Monique Baldwin is carving the event figurine and the Version 2 figurine, which will be shrink-wrapped with surprises. See those pieces and a Peter special on our EVENT PIECES page. Peter Calvesbert has also created a special piece to help him and his family visit Orlando. Event pieces must be ordered by January 31, 2008!

The host hotel is the Crowne Plaza Hotel ORLANDO-UNIVERSAL conveniently located near all local attractions. The cost per standard room is $139 per day, plus taxes, for one to four people. Other rates are available for upgraded rooms. Room reservations can be made now through March 11, 2008.
