Happy Halloween Adventurers,

At this spirited time of year, I wish that we all could be in 5189 Hill St. enjoying their fine spirits, not only Fingers Zambezi, the paranormal prodigy of the Club's Wurlitzer, but also the Kungaloosh, the Gypsy Moth, Samantha's Passion Potion, etc. However, until or wish comes true of the Club's reopening, I give to you a treat; the Adventurers Club Halloween Jubile!

Kungaloosh Adventurers,

Not many people know but Allan Sherman was counted among the roll call of Merriweather Pleasure's Adventurers Club. It must be there where he first heard this little ditty, sung so angelically (or influenced by his gin and tonic, hold the tonic add more gin and add a chaser of gin, from the mouth of Club Gleemiester, Col. Critchlow Suchbench.


Happy New Year Adventurers! Hopefully in 2013 we will once again be transported back to 1937 and enjoy the sights, sounds and excitement of Pleasure Island and the legendary Adventurers Club! Carpe P.M. and Kungaloosh!

Kungaloosh Adventurers,

As King Bob of the Save Pleasure Island Blogspot states, "There Is Finally Hope On The Island"! http://savepleasureisland.blogspot.c...y-hope-on.html. Starting Feb. 1st, WDW President, Meg Crofton is being replaced by Disneyland President George Kalogridis and Senior Vice President of Downtown Disney & Disney Sports, Ken Potrock being replaced by Disney Cruise Lines, Tom Wolber. These two seem to not have forgotten that Disney is supposed to be for all ages and not just children are being put in positions that could spell the rebirth of our favorite night time destination! It is time that a new letter writing campaign begin to bring to the attention of the men who brought Disneyland ElecTRONica and Mad T Party, and the Disney Cruise Line nightclubs, that Adventure keeps calling our names!

Having relistened to "MouseStation Episode 249"'s interview with certain actors from the Adventurers Club http://www.podfeed.net/episode/Mouse...embers/1415441 the night before closing, what they mentioned around 6:30 was absolutly true, "Don't stop trying!" Send personal hand-written letters that tell how long you've visited the Adventures Club, what kept you coming back, personal experiences and what Disney principals it upheld. Keep sending them well past the closing to let the executives know that there is still a need for this unique experience. And keep them professional.

Also, once again I present to you the '90s Pleasure Island Survey. I would include a filled out copy of this along with a hand-written letter for extra emphasis!


The time is once again upon us to act adventurers! Let us help these two executives start their new roles with a winning decision to re-open the Adventurers Club and Pleasure Island!

Kungaloosh Adventurers,

Disney Parks Blog has just announced that "Long-Lost Disney Friends Return for ‘Limited Time Magic’ at Walt Disney World Resort" and ask "So, which long-lost Disney character would you like to see the most? Let us know in the “Comments.” I believe that we all should pop in and let them know that we want Adventurers Club Aviator, Hathaway Browne, Adventurers Club Ichthyologist, Otis T. Wren, Adventurers Club Jungle Exploress, Samantha Sterling, Adventurers Club President Pamelia Perkins, Jr. Adventurer of 1937, Emil Bleehall, Adventurers Club Butler Graves, Adventurers Club Curator Fletcher Hodges and a bevy of Adventurers Club Frech Maids! Lets hope that this limited engagement could become a permanent fixture at 5189 Hill St. Pleasure Island!

Kungaloosh

Hopefully one day we'll visit again. Until then, some incentive to write those decision makers...

Kungaloosh Adventurers,

I don't know how many of you picked up on this, but take a close look at the top left corner of the concept art for "The Springs". Look to me like 5189 Hill St. still stands intact and apparently with a submarine just beyond it (However, Merriweather's exotic plantlife conservatory (AKA The Neon Armadillo) nextdoor seems to have become a tree). While this is good news indeed, I think that we still should give the powers that be a little nudge to let them know what it is we still want inside the building.

Happy 4th of July Everyone! And for you Pleasure Island Histarians out there:

Quote:
The story begins in New South Frewsberg, Pennsylvania, on July 4th, 1873. “Gold Rush Gus” Pleasure, free-wheeling millionaire prospector/explorer, paces in his study. A smiling nurse enters and announces the birth of a bouncing baby boy to him and his wife, the former Miss Lydia LaMarr, an early star of the American stage (known professionally as “The American Venus”). The boy is named “Merriweather” after Gus’ own father. . .

. . .Their first son, Stewart, is born on July 4th, 1901. A second son, Henry, is born in 1905, also on July 4th. . .

. . .On July 3rd, 1911, his daughter and the last Pleasure child, Merriam is born. Merriweather has the date legally changed to July 4th. Merriam proves to be the most beloved of his children, a soul-mate, friend, and companion on his round-the-world jaunts. . .

. . .Henry Pleasure marries ZENOBIA DUBOIS, Kissimmee Society Debutante, on July 4th,1926. . .

. . .An elaborate wedding worthy of royalty is held when Pleasure’s daughter Merriam marries an ambitious tango composer from Argentina, Raoul Manzanera, on July 4th, 1933. . .
~An exerpt from "The Pleasure Island Papers"

Happy 140th Birthday, Merriweather Adam Pleasure! My your Adventurers Club reopen this year and once again bring joy to Adventurers everywhere!


M. A. Pleasure

Also, I'd like to extend a Happy 112th Birthday to Stewart Pleasure, 108th Birthday to Henry Pleasure and 102th Birthday to Merriam Pleasure. Also Happy 87th Wedding Anniversary to Henry Pleasure and Zenobia Dubois and 80th Wedding Anniversary to Merriam Pleasure and Raoul Manzanera! Oh the Pleasure Family, as American as apple pie and Walter Elias Disney (Why else would he rename The Cox-Sherohman Floating Arts Palace the Empress Lilly)!

Well Adventurers, unfortunately today we lost another proud building of Merriweather Pleasure's design and while we may be losing a few more in the days to come, take solace in the fact that our beloved Adventurers Club is not facing this fate. How am I so sure? Two items, 1.) The Landings Concept Art shows the Adventurers Club still standing,




as does 2.) The current DTD maps indicating both Mannequins and The Adventurers Club surviving.


Never give up Adventurers, one day we will be enjoying another Hoopla! Our Club may go through some changes before they get it right again, but by Merriweather, our Club will rise again!

Please to remember the 27th of September
When Disney dissatisfied Guests a lot.
I see no reason why Disney's Pleasure Island treason
Should ever be forgot...
Five years ago Disney made a great mistake. While many still do not think that we shall ever see our beloved Club again, there are still many who will not give up hope. The Club still stands and still remains in the concept art of the Downtown Disney refurb, so only time shall tell. In the meantime Adventurers, tonight there shall be a grand gathering of Adventurers and a full compliment of permanent members enjoying a show entitled "Adventures in Charity".

Kungaloosh Adventurers,

This post has been a long time coming, but this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for the combined efforts of the ConGaloosh Society and the newly formed Adventurers In Charity organization for their continued success in keeping Merriweather Adam Pleasure’s Adventurers Club alive! This year’s event was certainly one for the books!

It all started on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 26th with an evening at Dixie Landing’s River Roost Lounge to enjoy fresh Kungaloosh’s and Yeehaw Bob's all night Hoopla! Many a Club favorite was played, including “Those Were The Days”, “That’s Amore”, “The Beer Song”, and of course “When the Saints Go Marching In”!


Friday, Sept. 27th we were treated at Disney’s Art of Animation resort, to a very informative lecture from Senior Costume Designer, Matt Davidson


about some of the work and design that went into our beloved Club! Not only were we shown his amazing concept art of our favorite characters,





but also learned about alternate designs, such as Fletcher Hodges in the infamous grass skirt and Pamelia (Boom Boom) Perkins and her pet detonating plunger, for when she was a demolitions expert!


As well as characters that were being proposed to be added to the club just before the closing announcements such as, Sheba, an out of work Hollywood actress having a fling with Dave the Sound Guy and a Sea Captain who's story of how he lost a hand changes with each telling!


The night then continued on to Sleuth's on International Dr. for MomGaloosh, a night of comedy with some of our favorite Club actors.



Then, Saturday, Sept. 28th we gathered at Animal Kingdom. Due to scheduling conflicts, The Anandapur Challenge once again had to be postponed, but we enjoyed the new Wilderness Explorers attraction,



while we waited with baited breath for the evening’s premier performance of Adventures In Charity. The Holiday Inn on 535 may never recover from that amount of pure Adventure that took place that night! We were greeted by tables of artifacts and treasures up for silent auction, as well as original pieces of art all in honor of 5189 Hill St. and it’s Permanent Members! The show began with the entrance of the evenings performers: Karl Anthony, Joy Anderson Bowes, Phil Card, John Connon, Mindy Walley Dietterick, Glenn Gover, Philip Nolen, Eric Pinder, Joe Reed, Sheila Smith Ward and Jennifer Warren in a rousing return of “The Happy Wanderer”.



All this madness was lead by the Emcee of the evening Graham Murphy


and due to contractual restrictions, Fingers Zambezi was unable to be our paranormal prodigy of the keys, so in his place we had his distant relation, Knuckles stood in and possessed the body of Jim Roberts as accompanist.



The night continued with each actor informing us of the good works that their charity of choice and then performed their favorite Club song! We were treated to such classics as, “Sushi-Yucky”, “Stuff Like That There”, “Sheik of Araby” “Mutual Admiration Society” and three new tales of heroism in this years “B Cup”! At the evenings end, a certain Mr. Pleasure appeared



after years of presumably being lost at sea to announce the winners of the silent auction and to inform us that we Adventurers In Charity had raised $9000 to be distributed to The Actors Fund, APOPA, The American Cancer Society, The American Diabetes Association, A Better Life Pet Rescue, The Dravet Foundation, The Garden Theatre, Harvest Time International, Haven of Hope AIDS Ministry!

Sunday, Sept 29th the weekend of adventure wound down as we wandered World Showcase in search of Food, Wine and Club actors performing in their current Disney roles.



Now, we can all hardly wait until next September when the most adventurous time of year returns! Thank you once again to the organizers of ConGaloosh and Adventures in Charity for a superb job this year and as always reminding us that “An Adventurers Life is Best”!



P.S. Due to my camera being in the shop this year, thank you so much to members of the ConGaloosh Facebook group, Jennifer Figler, Adrian Plaw and John Majors for their excellent photography!

Kungaloosh Adventurers,

As is my tradition on this day each year, I give to you one of the most secret, and often overlooked Club tradition that occurred only at Midnight of Christmas Eve 1937, the annual Adventurers retelling of "T'was the Night Before Christmas". For full effect, press play at the stroke of midnight tonight, accompanied by your favorite Yuletide beverage: eggnog, wassail, Yakoose Mousse, or a Kungaloosh.
