7th Annual Northwest Santa Worklshop

Recommended Posts

Santa Trever

It's hard to believe that NORPAC SANTAS will be hosting our 7th Annual Northwest Santa Workshop  at Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound,WA on November 4th & 5th with early arrival and check in on the 3rd. We will be gathering together for a fun weekend of networking, learning and kinship among our fellow brothers and sisters in red and green. Yes, I said green! If you've attended one of our workshops, you know The Grinch  himself always makes an appearance. We will be having panel discussions on Scheduling and Booking Agents & Business Organization. Guest Speaker Dr. Shawna Purcell on helping Santa & Mrs Claus stay healthy. Also, Christmas Karaoke with Santa Ramsey Cowlinshaw, Santa Olympics and Fun Entertainment with Danny Vernon's "Illusion Of Elvis" show. And as always, the now infamous Santa Bucket Dump in the water park area of Great Wolf Lodge. If you'll be in the area and would like to join us, there's still time to register and book a room at GWL. Although, staying at GWL is not a requirement of attending the workshop. 

You can get all the info at www.norpac-santas.org

Oh, me too!  

Its not like I am sitting around and doing nothing!

But still, what an absolute spotted owl hoot it would be to be there with my many PNW Santa brothers and friends.  Friends like you, Trever, Gene, Jerry and others.

Please pass on my Aloha to all.

Have a fun and safe weekend at the lodge.

I thought I had posted here?  Did my comment get erased or did the Grinch take it away?  Anyway, I wish I could go but finances dictate otherwise!  I am hoping to next year!

Santa Marsh,

Are you a member to the NORPAC Santa Group?  If not you really should consider it, they are a really great group of people.

(if I lived in Washington, I would be there!)

I am relatively new to Claus Net!  I would have loved to be at the convention this weekend but finances dictate that I work overtime this weekend!  But Trever, I would like to be in touch with you after the holidays and join Norpac Santas.  As for my past Santa experience, many years ago, I was Santa at a nursing home.  The past two seasons, I was Santa at a food bank and will do that this year!  But next year I would like to do it more and be good at it!  So I hope to network with some Santas in 2017!  I hope you all have a blast this weekend!  Wow!  Here is what I thought I had posted!  Silly me, I was doing this on my phone and forgot to press the submit button.  Or didn't press it hard enough!

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

    • Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?
      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

    • Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas
      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      ChristmasWeekly.com
      September 7, 2017

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
