Happy Camper

Roy Yamagata doesn’t seem to get tired. He had a busy weekend at the Kaua‘i Championships for the junior lifeguard program, but was back at work Sunday when the 2008 Paddle Fest hosted by the Kukui‘ula Outrigger Canoe Club took over part of the Po‘ipu Beach Park.

Melissa McFerrin was there despite her busy schedule, Saturday, with four of the Koloa Plantation Days events unfolding. Melissa said the Sunset Ho‘olaule‘a was great with Willy K performing for a long time for the crowd.

Kayleh Santos liked the miniature golf tournament. Kayleh (her sister Kaitlin is a swimmer) was with her nana Tish Ulanday who said the 4-year-old discovered the event last year, and now it’s an annual thing.

Over at the Little League Majors tournament, Michael Alonzo has been following the games and will be moving to cover the dodgeball event this Saturday. Sybil Nishioka said she came back from Koke‘e special for the practice, Sunday, and Faith Shiramizu and crew were still up in Koke‘e.

But before all of that, the Koloa Plantation Days parade is this Saturday, too, and David Chang is sure to be there as he has been at all previous ones.

David and the Blake brothers, Hartwell and Teddy, as well as Louie Abrams were at the Hapa Road Walk which was a huge success. Aunty Janet Kahalekomo even offered the pule before the walk.

OK, ‘nuff said … it’s time to get ready for the championship game of the Little League Majors … last chance for chili nachos.
