Aloha 16 TO 25 year old Lanikai Canoe Club members!

The LCC Youth OC-1 program has been modified. Club members up to 25 years of age may apply for the exclusive use of an OC-1.

Up until now, all the OC-1 canoes owned by LCC have been used jointly. However, going forward we would like to designate specific canoes to specific qualified individuals for their exclusive use. The revised program is intended to allow the awarding applicant to use their designated canoe as if they owned it themselves. This means: you can train and race whenever, wherever and however you want; store it wherever you see fit, (the longhouse, your house, at a friend’s who lives near the water, etc.); etc., provided you also accept responsible for it’s well being and maintenance.

Kawainui-Hamakua Marsh Meeting

There is a community meeting on this project – this Saturday.

When: Saturday November 30, 2013
Time: 8:30am sign in; 9:00am-12:00pm meeting
Where: Le Jardin Academy Auditorium
917 Kalanianaole Highway
Kailua, Hawaii 96734

Mahalo to those who have already commented on the Kawainui-Hamakua Marsh Complex Master Plan.

As a reminder, if you have not commented, it isn’t too late.

The deadline is 30 November.

This link will take you to the comment form with directions.

I am not asking you to endorse the entire plan – I am requesting that you endorse the canoe and recreation area at the end of Pinky’s canal across from Kalaheo High School – near what we call “weeds”. This area was used successfully under a temporary permit by Le Jardin Academy during the recent kayak season and could include possible canoe storage for canoe clubs – like Lanikai.

This future site offers a lot of potential for Lanikai Canoe Club without impacting the preservation of the Marsh area. We already use the canal – this storage and launch point – will allow us to do it safely year around.

I strongly encourage you to let your voice be heard and provide a comment as soon as possible and attend the meeting this Saturday.

Kawainui-Hamakua Marsh Complex Master Plan

Presidential Appeal

I need your help and thankfully – it will only take 5 minutes.
As many of you may know, the Kawainui-Hamakua Marsh Complex Master Plan is available for comment. This includes a possible canoe and recreation area at the end of Pinky’s canal across from Kalaheo High School – near what we call “weeds”. This area was used successfully under a temporary permit by Le Jardin Academy during the recent kayak season and could include possible canoe storage for canoe clubs – like Lanikai.

This future site offers a lot of potential for Lanikai Canoe Club. While we are not moving out of Lanikai, this canal site offers us the opportunity to launch and practice in flat protected waters and give us a lot of flexibility so we don’t overload any one area.

I strongly encourage you to let your voice be heard and provide a comment as soon as possible. Also, please encourage your friends to comment.

The deadline is 30 November so we need to act fast.
