Happy Camper for Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Between Billy DeCosta and Leonard Vegas on the microphones, soccer fans got a treat last week. But that talent is not limited to the Westside as Mark Sassone did a pretty good job introducing the Wailua TNT at the opening night of the Wil Veech soccer tournament Monday night.

Hats off to Bob French and all the organizers for doing such a good job getting both AYSO Region 940 and 941 together for great games.

Coach Kevin Cram got to take advantage of being a spectator to get in some shots (makes for good practice for the KIF), and Dean Okayama already downloaded the new firmware update for the Nikon D300, but couldn’t test it out because he was helping coach, Monday night.

Teal Basquez was at the Kaua‘i Soccer Association matches, Sunday, and coach Lorna Basquez was balancing between trying to figure out where to stay on O‘ahu for the state volleyball tournament and keeping an eye on son Grant who was playing against the Westside Falcons.

Meanwhile, hats off to Paul Ito and his staff at the Puakea Golf Course on a great University of Hawai‘i golf tournament. Mahalo to coach Ronn Miyashiro for giving Kaua‘i an opportunity to see great golf. Ron Castillo is wondering if any course records are going to be broken.

OK, ‘nuff said. Election’s over, it’s time for soccer at Vidinha Stadium.
