Thank you so much. We had a great time. The activities on both days were a good mix of various programs with lot of creativity. Food, drinks, music and ambiance was great. The organizers were very generous. This convention has probably set the bench mark for years to come. Thanks again to the organizers for a great convention.

Kudos to y'all. By far one of the best party in North America (in our opinion). Glad we were part of it and did enjoy every bit of it. Needless to say, meeting nice and friendly fellow Kodavas was priceless!

One of the best Kodava Conventions so far. I have to specifically commend the youngsters tending the bar (both days), who seemed to have done so much and enjoyed with the rest of us. The planners the executioners, the DJ's and everyone that was involved ought to be proud of their efforts for the outcome went beyond our expectations.

Thanks for making this one so very memorable

On behalf of the Kodavas of So Cal-So Cool, we would like to thank you and all the GRACIOUS hosts for hosting a wonderful and memorable event. It was superb and words cannot express our appreciation for the wonderful time we had. Your generosity was immense, true to our kodava tradition, and all the hosts went beyond their call to treat us as" KODAVA ROYALS". Hooray for all of you and may the good LORD be with all of you. Please share this E mail with all the GRACIOUS hosts.

Many Thanks

It was indeed a pleasure and honor to be a part of this years Kodava convention.  Bringing people from all parts of the country and outside isn't a simple task- and you all pulled it off really well. The unity among the organizers is commendable and worth a mention. May God igguthappa and Goddess kaveriamma bless you all. 

Good Luck- we now need to get back to our nati pani,
Lt Col & Mrs. Kokkalera Joyappa

A 'Note of Thanks' to the techie-land Techies!

Thanks for clearly the best overall Kodava Convention to date, gals and guys of N. California!
While I've personally been to 5 of these stimulating, prideful functions, this one clearly took the cake – even over our own 'LA-Yatch-Based' one. That was the general consensus of all – even those like Dallas' Muthu & Rani & Divya who have been to 99% of these Conventions!

The brains and the organizing ability of the successful techie clearly came thru, from the first minute of the Pre-Convention Function to the last staggeringly good (no, no one was drunk!) Valaga after the main function, to the 3rd Post- Convention celebration, after being politely kicked-out-from-2-noisy-rooms at 1am (even this was handled so well, so low-key!).

Starting with the informal 'stand-only-pre-dinner-reception'  Pre-Convention (which made it easy to mingle, unlike a sit-down place) the music, the food, the fun, the people – especially the hosts (and the guests too.. almost!!:D) – were all simply terrific! 

Looks like our techies imported some nice wives up there.  Working Kodavathis – Beauty, Brains, PR, Hard Work & Entrepreneurship. (Time you got into the dating business, guys – e-harmony, or better, e-Kodis (or e-Kodavathis!). 

Yes Sir, hats off to the women who were simply superb too – their hospitality, their organization, their cooking, their dancing, their games and their running of the show!  And, guys, you did a great job too, though we now have to say, "Behind every great woman is a great man with a great behind!!  See, we Kodava men ain't so macho after all!  We give you credit, and we let you do most of the work too!! :D 

The food was good, the music was great, the entertainment was super, the 'color' was lovely, the men were studly (esp the Kupsa warriors' (what great outfits we have, eh, the Kupsa & the Kodavathi Podiya, superb!) and the booze was flowing ah-ever-so-smoothly!
