With the change in weather this past weekend our 2010 paddling season has officially come to a close. Our Wa'a have been covered and stored, and we look forward to a quick winter so we can get back in the water soon!
The Hui will still have various activities planned throughout the winter season. We will post them on the blog as they are planned.
Mahalo to ALL of you who supported the Hui this past season. We appreciate your support! With the anticipation of more interest in our 2011 season our Hui Board will be putting together a more regular paddling schedule with designated times for Kane, Wahine and 'Ohana paddling.
If you were new to the Hui this past year and are interested in serving on our Hui Board next season, please let Darren know via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again...Mahalo for your support to Hui Paoakalani!
