Our agenda included welcoming words from MC Marcia King and President Donny Jones, a pule and chant from Devin Forrest, and introduction of steering committee members. Marcia and Donny talked about the history of HCC, head coach Christian Marston spoke of our great 2011 season and our success at the State Races on Maui last August.

Treasurer Diane Meyer described our fundraisers and the importance of raising money to support our programs, and Julie Wallace talked about the Monday/Friday morning paddling group.

The last item on the agenda was the election of officers for the 2012 season Steering Committee. For 2012 our officers are:
President - Donny Jones, Vice-President - Wilbert (Puka) Tai Hook, Secretary - Mary Mair, Treasurer - Diane Meyer, and Members-at-Large - Tess Elgart, Jason Ito and Lahela Correa. Julie Wallace will continue as Representative for the Hui ’o ’Akahi‘Akahi group, and Skip Forrest will serve as equipment manager.

At the close of the formal meeting, everyone stayed for a pot luck lunch featuring BBQ chicken cocked by Christian.

Mahalo to everyone who attended, and to Julie Wallace for the report!
