END OF 2014 OUTRIGGER CANOE PADDLING SEASON

To all those who have come out to the Great Salt Lake this past spring and summer and enjoyed paddling the outrigger canoes with our canoe club, we appreciate your involvement and friendship.  We have decided to end the general pubic paddling season for 2014 in order to focus our efforts on the maintenance of the canoes during the next few weeks.  Last season we had a late finish and could not properly prepare the outrigger canoes for winter.  The Hui will still be doing some selective paddling and training over the next month while we go over safety procedures and protocol.

This weekend, several Hui Paoakalani members will be meeting at the marina on Saturday morning to work on Kaleo.  If anyone is interested in assisting the Hui or learning how to care for the outrigger canoes, you can call Darren Medeiros for more information.  If you have any other questions, contact us via email.

MAHALO FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FRIENDSHIP!!

SATURDAY TRAINING SESSION: AUGUST 30, 2014 - 12 Noon

The Hui had a late Friday night and therefore we will start today's training after 12 Noon.  We are having a potluck lunch to begin the training and will be at the marina till the evening (sometime around 6pm) weather permitting.  If you have any questions, call Ben at 801-721-7026.  If I don't answer or return your call within 20 minutes, we are probably still on the lake somewhere.

Mahalo!!
