|The DGS Sailing Team|
|Welcome to the DGS Sailing Team Bulletin Board. The Team was formed to promote and perpetuate the art of sailing the Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe through active demonstration and hands-on experience. This page has been created to keep Team members and interested parties informed as to past, present, and upcoming events scheduled for the Team.|
|MESSAGE FROM THE CAPTAIN:
Howzit Gang! Well, it has been a while and a lot things have been happening with the Team.
Okay, since the web site was last up, Augie has gotten married and is on a long leave of absence.
Congradulations!, Augie and Laurie Ann. All the Best.
Gloria is still working as a registered nurse, and photographer-at-large for Pacific Paddlers Magazine and for HSCA. Which, by the way, keeps her pretty busy. She has been invited to Micronesia in the spring to cover a culture festival there. Sounds like fun.
Matt is a Junior in High school and is busy with school work and being a teenager.
I, myself, have been busy working with Nick Beck designing and building parts for his new canoe, Holopuni. Got to go back to the Islands in January. What a hoot! It was really good seeing everyone again.
Myron is still missing in action.
Well, it is almost time for a new season. Time to start planning the new schedule for the year. Any comments or suggestions would be of help.
Yeah, we are going to be under construction for a while, so come back again and see what is new. Take care and see you on the water.
