President's Message

Hello everyone, welcome to my second message. I 'd like to thank the new board for all their efforts at our first meeting. I think you'll see some of their efforts already in this newsletter. Our next meeting we'll be choosing the 2003 ski trip location. Please attend to promote your favorite.

If you can not attend see how to vote in this newsletter.

Just a little house keeping............

-Please tell me when you arrive if you like to be on the agenda.

-FOOD: please see a waitress {when you arrive} to order from the menu and pay for any meals for the evening.

This will get you better service and disrupt the meeting less for everyone. This is in addition to pupu's which may not continue.

This is a food cost issue that needs to be resolved and is being reviewed.

-Guests should be introduced to a board member "greeter" at the door at arrival.

See you at the YUM YUM, Dave


Thanks to Amy Bosich and Lisa Hamm the activities number 545- SNOW is up and running again. Amy got the number set back up and Lisa has volunteered to record the monthly activity list. Amy says- don't keep the good news to yourself- Tell a friend

Kualoa Ranch Mountain Bike Ride- June 2


The annual Tread Lightly mountain bike ride is coming up June 2 at Kualoa Ranch. Those of us who rode last year vowed we'd do it again. Join us for a fun ride of bicycling across streams, following cattle trails up and down hills, and stopping at the old Jurassic Park log. You will definitely need knobby tires.
Registration can be done soon via the internet: I'll also have some paper registrations available at the May meeting. This is an HBL ride.
Bring a change of clothes plus food and drinks for a picnic afterward on the beach. The water will feel good! For more info call Wanda
