Hopu 8 - Moments of Glory

Womenz Wednesdayz moves to Volcano

A new year...a new venue for Womenz Wednesdayz: Volcano on Haunani Rd. at 4:30pm

Last week they had 12 women out...yay!

It will be "Mostly Womenz Ultimate" with the idea that women along with a few select men that are attentive enough to not mow down the women players are welcome. We will limit the number of men on the field to 4 players, so that women still learning the game wont be rattled with too much aggressive play.

Go wahine ultimate!!!
