Boat Race - 1st place (picture of trophy showing soon)
Spirit - 2nd place (well ok, we tied with Salllies and Pirates so it came down to a 3 way boatrace and them darn ol' cheatin' pirates ...arrrrhhhhh...stole fast racers from other teams and beat us...arrrrrrrhhhh)

ALOHA SPIRIT (Steve, Rick, Jody, and Jon E.):
They won the Penultimate Trophy...yay!!!
The best Aloha spirit team ever at HOPU!!!

HUCKING FAOLES (Joel And Chloe):
Played hard all through the tourney...1st in body shots...all due to Joel!!!!

It was a blast and everybody had fun. Besides some scratches and minor injuries everybody is healthy and happy! We played hard, sang loud, and danced proud!

Thank you to all non-Swing of Fire players in Hilo. They have been playing against the HOPU team during pick-up having to put up with our intensity and yellin' and regular tourney talk. Just wanted to say thanx for being patient, for putting up with us, and for helping us get ready!
