Happy Camper for Saturday, December 15, 2007

After Betty Ihara got to meet UH coach June Jones, she is on a roll. Her daughter from the Mainland pointed her to a song about the Hawai‘i Warriors this is on YouTube, and she said all those Hawai‘i people who want to go to the Sugar Bowl, but can’t, should offer lei so those who are going can present lei in New Orleans. Any takers?

Ray Blouin of the ResortQuest at Maka‘iwa said they are working hard to try and get the Christmas lights going along the avenue leading to the Waipouli resort.

Hats off to Dr. Becky Rhodes and her Kaua‘i Humane Society staff for hosting a great luncheon where Gov. Linda Lingle was the featured speaker. Ron Wiley was there (although he didn’t have the help of a canine in this year’s Football Frenzy picks) since Laura is a Board member. Carol Ann Davis forgot to format her CF card, but was able to get the photos, anyway.

Randy Hee got to go East twice in a day as he was at the luncheon and then was joined by Dennis Esaki and Phil Tacbian (the general) in presenting the awards for the KIUC Calendar of Student Art Contest that night at Lydgate Park … it was definitely a jacket night as the wind in the pavilion was cold.

It was so cold, Sam Henriques had three shirts and her snow gloves on at the KIF soccer match … even coach Sonny Kaona said the wind was cold, and it was hitting him square in the face.

Red Scovel had the best idea — bento with Wailana Borrero and coach Kris while watching the game after softball practice. What? No Leah Scovel?
