063020: Vanikapila ʻUmi kūmālua (#12)


Aloha UFOhana,

It’s Tuesday and we’re well on our way to Vanikapila #12. A little hard to believe that we’ve been doing this for 3 months now. Mahalo Nui to all of you that have supported us through our growing process. More to come.

Below, the link to this Saturday’s Vanikapila. Remember we’re on at 12 noon now instead of 2pm.

Last week we tried having a few Social Distanced Ukulele Pilots participate in an Outdoor Kanikapila in our back yard. Judging from their reactions below it seems that the test was a success.

You may notice that there’s a little more sun than expected. I’m hoping install some shade cloth this Friday to more some shade for our SDUP’s (Socially Distanced Ukulele Pilots). Please let me know if you’d be interested attending this week as an Outdoor Kanikapila-er. Space is limited, so send an email to Kaleikoa@piko.ws asap to rsvp.

You may have also noticed that all of the OK-ers were wearing masks. If you will be attending please wear one as well. Oh, btw, if you’re looking to add some new ones to your collection here’s a sample of Nohea’s latest models . . .

They’re going quick. Put your order in now at 415-572-1175.

I had to build a makeshift stairway into the back to make it a little more accessible.

dawn creeps on dead leaves,
sunlight punctuates shadows,
morning comes swiftly.

Again, Mahalo Nui to you all for helping keep UFOhana Vanikapila alive. Hope to see you folks online this Saturday.

Aloha A Hui Hou!


Don’t forget your mask if you’re playing with us in the backyard! Pakaaak!

  1. What you are doing is wonderful. thank you.

    It would be helpful to those of us without books if you were to announce the cords of the song……as well as the page.

    Thank you again.

    1. Thank you Cindy. Unfortunately it’s really hard to sing, announced chords and watch the LiveStream monitor all at the same time. You’re much better off buying a flight manual. And yes, we do announce Book and Page numbers before each song. Though I don’t see how announcing the page would be any help to those of you without books?
