Happy Camper

Calvin Paleka was able to take in the UH football clinic and still make it to the K-PAL flag football games in Hanapepe. Actually, Calvin was at two days of the clinic.

Hats off to Roy Nishida and Theresa Koki (she got to get a walk in with Lori Bennet, the Hawai‘i Speed & Quickness coordinator, after registration, too) on a great event.

Coach Bobbie Rapozo had to come check on her little Ha‘aheo boy, and was amazed everything was still in order at the Team Soccer Director clinics in Puhi. Coach Kevin Devitt said some of the soccer players heading to Europe with him this Sunday are also part of the clinic that runs until tomorrow afternoon. Coach George Kuntz was thrilled that Mariko Strickland was able to join UH player Jessica Domingo and UH Hilo player Kehau Hagiwara in helping the kids. Now, if we can figure out how to get Tamalyn Hasegawa out to one of these clinics…

Michael Koerte was excited to hear that Waimea took the PONY baseball title. Actually, he was on the Big Island while everyone else roasted for almost four hours in Waimea.

And Joe Grace has his operation wired … chili, roast pork, and what else? His KJ’s ‘ohana was percolating at the KIUC membership meeting … people got excited because he had the roast pork (even Kanoe Perry, the UH intern, said the roast pork was da bomb). And Lyle Kobashigawa was able to get the Kaua‘i Kookies to the meeting and still get the manju to the funeral on time.

OK, now it’s off to check with Jean Souza and the Ocean Fair coming up Saturday … how do we fit in Roy Sakuma (Kenny Rapozo and the CKMS ‘ukulele band?) and all that in one day?
