Party is at Liz Kauai's house ...

UH made this announcement:

HONOLULU – The University of Hawai‘i Athletics Department and the County of Kaua‘i have announced plans for a football intra-squad scrimmage on the Garden Island, Saturday, April 10, at Vidinha Stadium.

The Warriors will fly to Kaua‘i that morning aboard two Hawaiian Airlines flights, then hold a two-hour scrimmage beginning at 11:00 a.m. An autograph session on the field will follow. The event is free to the public.

Co-sponsor Hawaiian Airlines is providing air transportation for the more than 150 players, coaches, and support staff. The County of Kaua‘i is also a co-sponsor and the host of the event, providing Vidinha Stadium facilities, along with ground transportation and lunch for the UH travel party.

The event marks the second-straight year that the Warriors will make an appearance on a neighbor island during spring practice. Last year, the team held a scrimmage at Maui’s War Memorial Stadium. It will also mark UH’s first trip to Kaua‘i since 1992.

The county is seeking community groups and businesses to assist with defraying the cost of the event, providing manpower, support, etc. They are also hoping to enlist the support of Pop Warner and other community football programs. For those interested in assisting with the event, contact Lenny Rapozo, Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation at (808) 241-4455.

The Warriors will open spring practice Thursday, April 1, at the Clarence T.C. Ching Field. The annual Warrior Bowl is scheduled for Friday, April 30.

Jim Donovan, UH Athletics Director
“We are grateful to Hawaiian Airlines for their continued support of UH Athletics throughout the years and Mayor Carvalho and his administration for making this event possible. This is a wonderful opportunity for our student-athletes to visit a neighbor island and meet the people of Kaua‘i. We have tremendous supporters on the neighbor islands and any chance we get, we’d like to thank them in person such as last year’s football scrimmage and this week’s men’s volleyball match on Maui. We’ve said all along that we’re Hawai‘i’s team and we’re excited for this opportunity and for our fans on Kaua‘i.”

Bernard Carvalho, Mayor of Kaua‘i
“Mahalo to the UH football program for bringing this event to Kaua‘i so our community can have an up close look at college football and really experience this exciting Warrior football team. We will welcome the support of businesses and community groups as we plan for this event to help us make this a great experience for all.”

Glenn Taniguchi, Hawaiian Airlines Senior Vice President – Marketing and Sales
“We think it’s important that families throughout our state have opportunities to experience UH Athletics events, and we’re honored to play a role in making that happen.”

Greg McMackin, UH Football Coach
“We can’t thank Hawaiian Airlines and Mayor Carvalho enough for allowing us to scrimmage on Kaua‘i. We preach to our players the importance of representing the state of Hawai‘i and we’ll have that opportunity to show our talents to the great people of Kaua‘i. I’m also happy that Vaughn (Meatoga), Kenny (Estes) and Jett (Jasper) will be able to practice and scrimmage in front of their family and friends.”

Under normal circumstances, I would be OVERJOYED!
But April 10 is the day I leave for Portland to prepare to greet my new grandson! I have to check into the airport at the very hour the scrimmage starts...

Since I have football on my mind, I thought this was COOL!



I can't wait to get Davone's new Barefoot League shirt!

TOTALLY COOL, LIZ!!! Too bad you won't be home to witness the game. On the other hand, what if your grandson arrives early? Maria's son arrived 2-3 weeks early. Due in March, born in Feb.

Nah, only in my dreams. HA! My Spring Break ends that weekend. That would be a great little break, though.

Hope you have some free time up here -- but not the following weekend!

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
