What do you call a fan of everything tropical?

So what do you call a Buffett Parrothead, a beach lover, a cocktail consumer, a Chesney fan, a seeker of relaxation and a blue water dreamer?

Last week I asked you guys to help me come up with a name for all of the above. Pour all these names into one big margarita glass and that’s who my readers are. You’re a great group of people and I want to refer to you often by name.

I want to thank everyone that submitted names. It was a hard choice, but at the end of the day Carla a Facebook fan came up with the name that flowed and put everything together perfectly. And that name is…

The Castaways

What do you think? Pretty great I think.

You will start to see this name pop up on RumShopRyan more and more as the site grows. I want to eventually get some shirts, hats and beach towels made up for you guys.

I will have some Castaway wrist bands to hand out at the Buffett Gulf Shores concert. Come find me and I’ll hook you up! I’ll be the tall bald guy with a drink in his hand!

Thanks again everyone for being a great group and an active community.

    Ryan! I love it! I *am* a CASTAWAY! would love to be at the Buffet event… alas, my nose is to the grindsone and I can’t get down there. So, with my perpetual Sand on the Brain, I’ll be island dreaming and raising a rum drink to toast you and my fellow Castaways!

    Thanks for the comment Jorie! You will be missed at the concert along with everyone else that can’t make it. A special toast to missing Castaways will be had! Cheers.

    Ryan, I love your website. From the moment I click on it I am taken away to paradise. If only I could hang out on your site all day. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks Melissa! That’s the idea, to bring a bit of paradise to everyone out there. Thanks for the comment! Cheers!

    Sounds perfect. I think most of us feel like a castaway in everyday life… unles your everyday life is at the beach, drink in hand!
