Upcoming Events

He’e Nalu Ohana

I am looking forward to a great season in 2013 as the club continues to grow and strengthen.  Despite the cold winter the canoes at both sites are being used on a regular basis. We have a great group of enthusiastic new paddlers that have been training hard all winter.  Let’s all come together to prepare for the new season:

  • 2/17 General Meeting & Work Party @ 101 from 9:30-12 Let’s show our canoes (& each other) a little love, and talk about our goals.
  • 3/2 Blessing Prep @ 101 9-12 Rig canoes and set-up for the big party on Sat.
  • 3/3 He’e Nalu Blessing @ 101 10-2 Let’s do this right! Bring our Ohana together: potluck, live Hawaiian music, newcomers welcome.

A’ohe hana nui ka ka alu’ia. No task is too big when done together.
More details to come.
