After all those days (and weeks) of no-rain, where did the Sunday rains come from, Tony Ricci of the Garden Isle Racing Association wanted to know. The afternoon showers that blew down from Koke‘e only briefly interrupted the two-day event that was dedicated to the late Gary Saiki through the Gary Saiki shoot out.
Courtney Brock said this was Kayde’s only second time racing, and the Junior Dragster is starting to “get the hang of what is supposed to happen,” and Christopher Silva doesn’t mind being second to his brother Christian (he got first, Saturday night!) because he’ll be on the field, Friday night with the Kauai High School football team (they’re celebrating Homecoming, this week!). Kainalu Tanaka was another Red Raider football player helping Devin Almarza in the pit area.
Kudos to Tito Villanueva and Angel Acorda on getting the 18th Kauai Filipino Chamber of Commerce golf tournament off and rolling, early Labor Day morning! Laurie Yoshida (they’ve got the Fall Festival coming up, Oct. 21) said this is the second year the tournament is being hosted by the Chamber’s Foundation.
Mayor Derek Kawakami was still feeling the effects of The Kauai Marathon, but trooped on down to the Lihue United Church of Christ Labor Day Breakfast where he could enjoy Dr. Monty Downs who was on stage for his gig…you had to go early to enjoy the doctor’s guitar and harmonica performance.
Okay, we’re back to the Kauai Interscholastic Federation fall schedule…air riflery, or girls volleyball?
