Happy Camper

The Saharas and the Shibatas and the Sakodas (how coincidental, they all start with “s”) had a busy weekend juggling between the Chinese New Year dinner and the Hui Alu Shinnen Kai luncheon. And if that’s not enough food, throw in the EK Lions Pancake Breakfast. Good job, Lions!

Kaua‘i Mayor Bryan Baptiste had the same schedule, except throw in the housing fair … boy, there were a lot of people at the funeral … Domi Alayvilla said it was ‘ohana, Paul Curtis was doing the funeral while brother Mike came over to check the fair.

Haven’t seen Jodi Kjeldsen since the convention center days, so was nice to see her checking in people (and then, it was off to Hoe Wa‘a, Race No. 5, Sunday).

Glenna and Gary Ueunten were also busy with the weekend schedule, balancing the appearances of the Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko at the Girls Day festivities at Kukui Grove and then at the Hui Alu event Sunday.

Kevin Devitt and Karl Ubongen were able to sit on the sidelines and enjoy some of the KSA soccer games since the GIFC had a bye on Sunday. Reynold Miyazaki was enjoying the shade while keeping an eye on the Ha‘aheo (how many other teams do you know that wear pink?) team that was warming up … now, which one is the neice?

Of course if Ha‘aheo is playing, coach Bobby Rapozo is not far away, and Jane Garma was out in force trying to keep track of all those Westside Falcons (it used to be Flaming).

It’s back to Hanalei School where they’ll be celebrating Hawaiiana today … hmmm, Jennifer Relacion said it’s apple pie and chili peppa’ chicken at the Ching Young Bakery and Snack Shop.
