We will be meeting on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Great Salt Lake Marina from 10 am to 2 pm.   The purpose of this meeting is threefold:

1. Perform maintenance on Na Wa'a (our 3 canoes) in preparation to rigging and launching Na Wa'a at a later date - probably in June.

2.  Clean up our office and storage facilities, inventory, repair and maintain our paddles, personal floating devices, radios and other safety equipment.

3.  Discuss the current dredging status of the marina and its impact on our paddling schedule and discuss plans for the 2017 Paddling Season.  We will try to answer any questions you may have on any matters relevant to our canoe club.

Naturally, we are also planning to have a Hui style barbecue pot luck luncheon.  Please bring your favorite BBQ or island food.  If you have any questions about this meeting or the upcoming paddling season, please text me (Ben Au) at 8014-721-7026.

Mahalo,  Ben
