041315: We’re at UFO Hq this Friday . . .

Aloha All,

We’ll be congregating at the UFO HQ this Friday. Same run time as usual, 7:30 to whenever . . . BYPotluck (healthy to semi-health dishes), BYOGear (music stands and maybe chairs, just in case, remember Murphy’s 5th Law), BYAloha to share with everyone, of course . . .

Btw, we’ll be holding band practice from 5pm – 7pm with Halau Hula Mai this Friday. We’re asking that everyone refrain from coming earlier than 7pm to prevent disruptions. Mahalo Nui for your Kokua (assistance).

Meanwhile, here are the images from the Elks Kanikapila last Friday (click the collages below for album images):

. . . and below, the Sleeping Lady Kanikapila where we were graced with Kumu Lynn Roth’s Hula! That’s her below right in white with her sister in the black jacket. Lovely! Such a treat to have them both at Wahine Moe Moe.

A Second Bloom,
Flowers flowing gracefully,
Hula Wahine.

Mahalo Nui Loa, once again, to all of you that make Kanikapila in our lives possible and to all of you that help with your generous donations and your continued assistance with all our events.

Ok, have a great week everyone! Hope to see you this Friday.

Malama Pono Kakou,


040815: We’re at the elks this friday . . .


Good Evening UFOhana,
I hope you all had a Happy Easter and a (Happy) Passover. Hard to believe, but it’s already the second Friday of April! Which means we’re at the Elks this Friday. So we’ll see you there at our usual run time of 7pm to 10pm. I’m sure the Elks will be cooking up their usual delicious meal for a nominal fee.

Mahalo Nui Loa, once again, to all of you for sharing your Mele, Aloha, Ono-licious Foods and your Kokua (help)  with KP duty at last Friday’s Kanikapila . . .  (click collages for photo albums) . . .

We had a pretty full house at the Sleeping Lady the next day . . . complete with a new Conch Shell blower (Mark, who else?  He can be seen in the Photo Album, click collage below). We were even treated to a Hula for Waimanalo Blues!

Btw, on the 25th we will holding another Kanikapila in Sonoma (no worries there will be a flight crew at SL too), But instead of the Bistro it will be held at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club, located not too far from our previous venue. Here’s a link to their site  http://sonomavalleywomansclub.org/index.php .  This one looks very promising, all they ask is that we donate tips to The Club to help defray costs. Mahalo to Betty Ann and Crew for finding and arranging this one. Same run time as usual, 2p – 4p, keep in mind that this is not a restaurant you may want to Lunch before coming and BYOBeverage, BYOMusicStands. I think there may be enough chairs but remember Murphy’s 5th Law, “Bring it so you won’t need it.”

And as if we weren’t having enough fun, Tuesday Night we were lucky enough to have band practice with Hula Mai . . .

Invisible strings,
Connects the hearts of many,
Such is Aloha.
