Wrap up

January 20, 2010

Just a quick post –

  1. We have taken down the poll for Shot Event 2010.  There was enough interest within the group to pursue the cafes.  More info to come from Trevor as soon as we have things locked in.  Stay tuned!
  2. The eBay store for Andy Juhl’s collection is almost sold out.  Bargain prices on shots still available, so if you’ve held back there’s no time to wait – go bid, go buy!   We’re looking to close the store by the end of January, at the very latest, so there’s no time to waste.   Check out the store here:  http://stores.ebay.com/bidding4andy



Shot Event 2010

January 4, 2010

Every year the Hard Rock Shot Glass Collector group meets up in city.  This year, we’re going to try and hit 2 cafes in Florida.  The weekend we’ve proposed is Friday, June 11 and Saturday, June 12.  So mark your calendars!

We are still confirming things with the cafes so we are not announcing them just yet.  Trevor M. is heading up the event this year!!!  More info to come as soon as we get some results on the poll.
A lot of work goes into these events and the cafes want to know that the collectors are interested in coming out.  Sooooo, if you can make it or even if you can’t, please vote.  We really, really need to know what the interest is for this year before we commit to the cafes.
Which means you gotta go vote on our fancy poll!  Don’t send me an email about your status – put your name down on the poll one way or another.  Don’t doddle, the sooner we get an idea of the interest, the sooner we know if there will be an event this year.
To vote, please visit the following web page:
You must be a memeber of the Yahoo HRCSHOTS group in order to vote, so if you’re not part of the group… why not?  Sign up and be part of the group and then take the poll!



January Website Update

January 2, 2010

Well the ball has dropped to start a new year.  Cheers to everyone for 2010! 

What’s Supp?

After spending a whole whack of time coding the main page to shuffle in different pictures, our web host company no longer supports the coding in Frontpage.  So you may have noticed that the home page is back to not shuffling the pictures.  *Sigh*  But at least you can see the static pictures again.  Thanks to all who sent me a note telling me that the main page was broken.

Andy Juhl

Thanks for everyone’s support with the eBay store we’ve setup to sell off the remaining shots.  Lois, Tom and I are hoping to get rid of the remaining shots and pretty much all the HRC shots have now been listed on eBay.  We would like to close the store by the beginning of February so if you’re looking to pick up some traders or fill gaps in your collection, now is the time!  Some excellent deals to be had in the store so please check it out:


New Shots released last month:


  • Ho Chi Minh City
  • Las Vegas City #2
  • Las Vegas The Strip #2
  • Nagoya (same logo as 2008, smaller in size)
  • Phuket

Red Circle

  • Ho Chi Minh City
  • Phuket
  • New York Dessert Flared


  • Dallas Pin Shootout 2009
  • On-Line Happy New Year 2010

Doors Open and Ajar:

Ho Chi Minh City opened on December 17.

Seattle – new info on the HRC website is that it will now open in Spring 2010.  Guess it means it won’t be open in time for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics… Boo!

Medellin, Columbia will be getting a cafe in the summer.

Next Event:

Pins Gone Wild IV – Orlando – January 29 – 31

UPI (Useless Piece of Info):

There were over 130 shot glasses released in 2009.  You could have just started collecting last year and you’d already have a sizeable collection!

Of note, these ones increased the collection the most:

  • 65 City
  • 31 Red Circle (past 9 months)
  • 15 Event
  • 14 On-Line

If you have anything you’d like to write-up for the blog, send it to me and I’ll post it for you.  It doesn’t have to be long and can be about anything HRC related – such as your 100th visit to a cafe, a visit to a new cafe, your local cafe, your favorite GM, your top 10 favorite shots or cafes or even your summary of an event you’ve just attended.  Kinda lonely doing all the writing myself… I don’t have a cafe of my own and Seattle is taking FOREVER to open its doors, so inspiration is limiting.  I know there’s a few budding writers out there!  Get blogging!




Cheers to 2010!
