Aloha Pan Pacific Championship participants (and those just about to e-mail me with their registration),
A couple of announcements on lodging and socials… I know that many of you are booking your flights, hotels and cars as vacation packages but for those of you still looking to book hotel, you are eligible to receive special rates at the Maile Sky Court. If you have already booked outside of a vacation package, you may want to ask if there is an HPU discount.
Maile Sky Court--$69, while availability lasts, using the online promo code: GO HPU
Friday BP workshop for judges and debaters:
The workshop will be 1pm-2:30pm on the HPU downtown campus. Room TBA. Please let me know if you are planning on attending. This workshop will serve to introduce judges and debaters unfamiliar or new to this style of debate to common BP conventions. If enough debaters are present, we may have a truncated practice round.
Friday Night Social Options:
On Friday night (Feb 18th) we have secured a special group rate for Germaine’s Luau http://www.germainesluau.com/.
· Adults (ages 21 and older): $55.00
· Juniors(ages 14-20): $50.00
These rates are in addition to the regular registration fees but include round trip transportation from Waikiki, an all-you-can eat buffet, three drink coupons for the adults (must be 21 years & older), unlimited soft drinks, an IMU ceremony and an exciting Polynesian show featuring a Samoan Fire Knife Dancer. You will need to be in Waikiki on Friday, Feb. 18th ready for pick-up at one of these two locations: Waikiki Gateway Hotel - 4:20PM (across from the Maile Sky Court on the West end of Waikiki strip); Queen Kapiolani Hotel - 4:45PM (right before Kapiolani park on the East end of the Waikiki strip).
Please confirm the number of people with names that will be attending and I will reserve the seats.
Venue in town:
When I have a better idea of how many of you are going to the luau or interested in a different social in Waikiki, I can set a location.
