***We will need carpool support to get all kids out back to Keauhou. Please let us know if you can drive and how many open seats you have.*****
Parents RSVP to Nahaku by 5/27
which evenings/nights you wish to join us as land support crew
what times on those days you would be able to meet at the gate (ex. after noon, after 3p...)
what time you would need to be out the gate the following morning. Keep in mind that each leg of this sail is relatively short and that the kids will be coming into the next destination around 12noon each day. There is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate you on gate opening/closing times, but we will do our best.
Can you bring a vehicle with a decent amount of clearance (it doesnt have to be 4WD, but it does have to be able to clear uneven ground). We will be very limited on the number of vehicles we take into each place, so we'll have to consolidate people and gear into available vehicles.
Saturday 6/18, 5p: Closing Dinner. Bring the family for a potluck dinner at Uncle Kalani's house! We'll remember our favorite times, provide program feedback, and look ahead to what's next!
