Hats off to Dickie Chang, Ron Wiley and all the media people (Joel Pahukula was one of the golfers) who were working tails off this weekend with the Greg McMackin golf touranament, the Koloa Plantation Days celebration, and everything else.
Mahalo coach Trent Shimabukuro … he just knew that cold Coke would hit the spot after a long day out in the Koloa sun. Earlier, Joe Grace was commenting on how the KJ’s lunchwagon went through about 500 pasteles in less than an hour at the Koloa Plantation Days tent. But if you hang with Melinda Uohara, she knows how to get lunch (even if Walt and Anne Barnes got lost).
Tom Tannery was not in his yellow shirt, Sunday, when he joined the East Y’s Mens Club in collecting tickets at the Koloa Plantation Days rodeo. But he was back in yellow Monday, as he looks ahead to the Swim Kaua‘i Aquatics’ first swim meet in the new pool this weekend.
Cheyenne (that’s Tom and Wendy Tannery’s daughter) got to compete in the rodeo Sunday, and Wendy (she’s back to work at Waimea Canyon Middle School) got to ride in the parade by borrowing Cheyenne’s horse.
Meanwhile, this is the week for Mark Oyama’s Ultimate Plate Lunch (yep, got mac salad) coming up Friday with chef Alan Wong. Tickets are still available and if you have a company lunch, they can deliver.
