AllStar TEAMS come together for a day of FUN, camaraderie, and competition!
BIG MAHALO to all the athletes and spectators at the 2014 Ka Moku o Keawe Makahiki games right here in our town of Waimea, Hawaii! 28 AllStar athletes competed in Hawaiian games of skill and support. Our AllStar Men's team placed 2nd overall, and AllStar Women placed 1st for the second year in a row, with a second AllStar team taking 5th. I'm proud of each one of you! It's an honor to be part of the town of Waimea and compete with our community. Mahalo to all those who were able to be there and enjoy the day with us and support our teams!!!

What a wonderful day to spend with the entire Waimea Community! If you missed it this year, you can bet it will be back next year in mid-January. I was fortunate to be able to be a volunteer referee and I can assure you they would appreciate MORE HELP AND VOLUNTEERS next year! Let me know if you're interested!
