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!

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • 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?
