seven-time finalist, a record unmatched by any other Kona farm.

ONE AND ONLY REMINDER, RTFD! (Read The Frackin' Directions:-)
On List entries and entries WITHOUT shipping information AND selection of A,
B or C WILL NOT be entered. (A, B or C selection can of course be
descriptive rather than just A, B or C.)
Do NOT assume I can read your mind! I will NOT email invalid entries
requesting omitted information, they will simply be deleted. I don't have
time to waste. Don't have enough hours in the day as it is!

miKe,
We all appreciate your offer, but I have an idea for an option D.  Many 
people would like to try your Kafe espresso blend.  Maybe you could offer 
some of that as an option.  Just a thought. I know that your tradition is to 
offer Kona which would be my choice anyway.
Mike

My Christmas Tradition has always been to gift Kona to the List. This is
year seven doing it. To do otherwise would be contrary to my tradition.
Don't worry, there will be an Ohana Blend offering sometime in the future.
Quite possibly in response to winning one of Zara's pencil sharpener coffee
grinders! (There will also even be a webcart in the future for those who
choice to pay for it and other roast offerings:-)

Ah-oh, now up to 83! If it breaks 100 entrants may cave-in and make it two
giftings.
(Without a reduction in amount sent each of course.)
Now hold on to your mouse clicker a darned second, that's 100 UNIQUE
entrants, no trying to stuff the ballot box!
:-)
