The Ski Association of Hawaii needs a Vice
President NOW. I don't want to risk the loss of momentum to the
club. We're on a roll! I haven't been able to attend the August and
September meetings and we haven't had a Vice President to pick up the
gavel. Jim Kelly has been gracious to fill in but we need new
recruits. Who will step forward to help??? Don't be
shy. Please contact me via a-mail if you will consider it. Thank
When I'm in town, I try to come to all the events. If you haven't
made it to any of these, you have missed on some good times. Check the
schedule and I'll see you at the next one. Bye for now,
As hard as it is to believe, October is right
around the corner. For those of you who don't want to wait until the
absolute last minute, a renewal form is included in this month's
newsletter. I would ask you to mail it by midnight so you don't forget but
we are all out of Gins knives. You can, however, save 37 cents by bringing
your renewal form and check (payable to the Ski Association of Hawaii) to the
The Kick-Off meeting at the Elk's Club is right around
the corner. There will be more details about the festivities in next

encouraging potential recruits to tag along and see what we are all about.

In case you Missed it:
Pau Hana at Ocean
Usual suspects- Craig, Amy and Dave were there. Relatively new member
Michelle Jennings was there (arrived first in fact) Anita and Shereen also
made appearances. As advertised the first two drinks were $1 each so
people who didn't drop by missed a heck of a deal. The editor was there
but had gotten a tooth pulled a few hours earlier and was a little quieter
than usual. Somehow people seemed to have a good time anyhow (go figure).
Everyone was fashionably late but there was some excellent
food and people did eventually get around to playing four games of Volleyball.
We mixed up teams after two games and even though Amy was on the losing team
all four games it wasn't her fault. Really. Tales of odd adventures
from Ski trips past were told so it was worth the price of admission just
for the potential blackmail material. New member Honey was there and
relatively new member Michelle Jennings along with many of the usual suspects
Jim, Vel, Dave, Amy, Craig, Wendy, Shereen and a few guests.
IMAX - 3D Space
I had high expectations for this event but they were
exceeded. Everyone who went (Amy Dave, Craig, Hans, Michele, Honey,
Elizabeth, Bill Rothe also donned 3-D glasses) couldn't believe how much the
film made you feel like you were at the Space Station (minus the weightlessness,
of course). One of the best IMAX films I have seen. Afterwards most
of us had dinner at Keoni's by Keo. The food was excellent. Some of
the die-hards went back to Kelly O'Neil's afterward. All in all a great
event. Thanks to Amy for putting it together and for a great event
idea. The Space Station 3D is a limited run so I would encourage everyone
to get down to the IMAX as soon as possible to check it out.
October 3 - Kickoff party at the Elks Club
October - Stairway to Heaven Hike
??? - Group tour of the Missouri
??? - Cosmic Bowling
Articles are due 3rd Thursday of the month to Omer.
