On Saturday, March 9th we spent a beautiful day on the water. This will be a busy year for us and
Kevin, Tony and Brian with the Kahakai Outrigger club of Long Beach took 15 of our vets and families for an afternoon of outrigger canoeing. It was not just fun but also educational. Brian, our main instructor, gave a brief history of the outrigger, the traditions and the DOs N DON’Ts. He made it clear that there is a right vs. wrong, and yes, even a respectful way to address the outrigger canoe. One of which was putting it in the water- it weighs about 400 pounds and that requires lots of teamwork.
A huge thanks to everyone Kevin, Tony, and a special thanks to Brian for his attentiveness and his patience and attention to making this a great experience for our vets. Thanks, guys, for a beautiful afternoon. So, what do you do after an afternoon of rowing – PIZZA
