Dear Freddie,
Well, what did you go as for Halloween?

It isn't Ralphie's favourite holiday, as the fireworks really scare her.  Maybe that is why she doen't look impressed! 

 (Don't worry, she was only in the costume for a few minutes to have the pic taken.)
I was a little less creative this year, but one of my favourite costumes was my rub-a-dub-dub outfits...

With Halloween past us, now it is time to get braced for the winter sun-selling season!
Happy selling!
Dave Emery

ChrisAloha Chris Kai'aokamalie
This past week we lost one of the industries best, Chris Kai'aokamalie, of the Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau.  Many of you will remember Chris most recently from the Maui-Travel Brands shows in western Canada in July. 

I can think of no person who exemplified the spirit of Aloha better than Chris.  With his great smile, he had a way of making everyone around him feel part of his ohana (family).

Aloha Chris.  You will be greatly missed.
