Aloha Everyone,

The Hui will be extending its Lau Lau & Poke Sale fundraiser. Lau Lau and Poke will be available for pick-up on Saturday October 18th between 10 am till 12 noon (same location). Cut off date for all orders will be on Wednesday October 15th with any remaining lau lau's and poke available on a first come first serve basis on Saturday. For those who have pre-ordered already, we hope this extension will not inconvenience you? To place an order, please email the Hui at 

This will be the last Lau Lau & Poke fundraiser till Spring 2015.  All funds earned help offset operating costs at the GSL Marina and to help maintain the wa’a. All donations are tax deductable. Coming up in Spring of 2015, the Hui will formally introduce Kai Lana Kaleo – our new OC6 Hawaiian sailing canoe to the community.  Mahalo for your continued support of Hui Paoakalani.

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.
