Kudos to Chris Gampon, Gano Maheshwaran and all the Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation ohana on a great traditional Hawaiian games gathering, part of Koloa Plantation Days (notice how different stations attract people on different years? This year, it was the throw net — Coach Fernando Constantino, how is the Westside Blue doing? — while last year it was the spear throwing.) See more coverage, A6.
