SATURDAY PADDLE AUGUST 13TH

Aloha Hui Members and Friends.  We will be paddling this Saturday, August 13th starting at 10 am.

FYI: 
Each year State Parks hosts Military Appreciation Day to honor our active serving military and our veterans.  This year it will be this Saturday, August 13 for the Great Salt Lake Marina.  Park entrance fee will be free for active military, veterans and their family members.
Harbor Master Dave Shearer and the GSL Marina will be hosting a barbecue at noon that will be free for all the above listed.  A small donation of $5.00 (donated to the GSL Emergency Response Team) will be appreciated from all others that would like to attend.

In lieu of the Hui’s regularly scheduled potluck, Hui Paoakalani board members have decided to support Harbor Master Dave at the BBQ for the GSL Emergency Response Team.
We invite each of you to also participate by making a donation at the BBQ or if preferred, bring your own lunch that day.

See you on Saturday! Feel free to call Darren at 801-243-7473 if you have questions.

HUI PAOAKALANI 2016 PADDLING SEASON - SATURDAY, MAY 28, 2016

Aloha Hui Paoakalani Members and Friends,

We  have had a late start to our paddling season because of availability issues with our Hui members.  Earlier this spring we have met and worked on the maintenance of our equipment and canoes.  However, we have not had time to launch any of the canoes due to uncertainties with the marina dredging, hurricane like wind conditions at the marina, bad weather and other family commitments.  However, we are launching one of our canoes this coming Memorial Day weekend, specifically, Saturday, May 28th.  Hopefully, this will allow us to start a regular paddling schedule in June and continue throughout the summer months.

Therefore, if you are available, please join Uncles Butch, Ben and Kwan Ki this Saturday to haul, rig and secure one of the canoes at 10 am on Saturday, May 28th.  We plan to have a potluck luncheon sometime around 1 pm.  Please bring some of your favorites.  We plan to barbecue some char siu pork ribs and anything else you want to bring.  If you have any questions, please call Ben Au at 801-721-7026.  Mahalo,  Ben
