Happy Camper for Saturday, October 11, 2008

Bob Bartolo said the coconut cooking contest is going to be tomorrow at noon and Mayor Bill “Kaipo” Asing is going to be one of the judges.

Actually, the Coconut Festival is one of three big events taking place all in the same day, so how are you going to take it all in?

Kenny Ishii said he’s expecting to see everyone at the Kapa‘a Ball Park. He was looking ahead to the Lights on Rice parade which is coming up Dec. 5, but first, check out the Coconut Festival.

Neill Sams of Orchid Alley (they’re going to be featured in a Florida magazine) is going to be there as both a vendor and a volunteer while Fely mans the shop across the street.

Art Umezu will probably be at both the Matsuri event at the convention hall and will probably check out the Coconut Festival, too.

Looking ahead, Ross Shimabukuro said the menu at Friday night’s game will have shoyu chicken bowls and a limited number of pork adobo. And there’s always Brad Gipolan’s Dippin’ Dots for dessert.

Hats off to Laura Kawamura and all her 4-H leaders on a great 2008 National Youth Science Day. Not only was the information and demonstrations on hydrogels great, did you know there is a Megan Souza at Kaua‘i High, and one Megan Souza at Kapa‘a? The one at Kaua‘i high raises award-winning 4-H livestock and the one at Kapa‘a plays a pretty mean back row in volleyball. Are they related?

OK, time to go watch the Kapa‘a Megan play in Waimea. Stay safe.
