Hawaii women’s volleyball: Wahine Meet & Greet set for College Hill

The third annual Wahine Volleyball Meet & Greet is set for 5:30 p.m., Aug. 10, at College Hill, 2234 Kamehameha Ave. The cost is $500 with net proceeds going to the program for summer school, supplemental meals and other things.

I know. A little pricey. Just passing it along. They’ve been doing this for various teams in recent years. This is the third for Wahine volleyball and is a chance to chat with coaches and players. This coincides with the first day of practice.

Event includes heavy pupu, two drinks and valet parking.

Registration is available here.

Call Kimo Kai at the UH Foundation for more info 956-4322 or Kimo.Kai@uhfoundation.org.

    I post this only because of the questions that have cropped up online and a recent related post by Cindy on VT. Robyn Ah Mow is divorced. The decree for the joint petition was issued in April, the process took less than 2 months, and no attorneys were involved. She is now going by her maiden name. This is all in the public record and I have no other info related to this. I will not comment further and hope everyone else here moves on.

    Wow, pricey is right; but it sure sounds like it would be fun to meet all the players and mingle some if that’s what you can do at those things! GO BOWS!

    Oh wow, I’m sorry to hear about Robyn, but as Mav said, it is a time to move on. May the Lord be with you and your ohana Robyn.

    1. I didn’t want to get into the details, respecting Ah Mow’s wishes that it wasn’t anyone’s business. I only commented on VT because people asked what name she was using.

    From previous post.

    Mahalo Mauna for telling me about Spectrum 1014. Didn’t have it on my favorites listing so didn’t even see it. Much mahalos! Am a happy camper I get to see the games now! GO BOWS!!

    I hope in the future these fund raisers are a little more “fan friendly”. The only people who can afford such pricey events are big time donors and CEOs. Not a good way to get the regular fans become season ticket holders.

    With season tickets down, a smarter event would be one where families can attend and maybe the families enjoyed the event so much that they would buy season tickets.

    Priced out many with the pricing. I doubt even the Aunties can afford to go.

    Wow ! At that price they may get maybe between 75-100 people if they lucky.
    Maybe UH should make a video interviewing the Coaches and Players during that event, and for those that can’t attend they can watch the video on the website in exchange for a donation. ( Just a thought )

    7. $500 x 100 = $50,000. If can get 100 to come, will be a very successful fundraiser. My understanding is that in the past they have sold out these events as they can only have so many attendees due to the size of the house.

    The lawn is large, so maybe they’ll put up a tent.

    Seems to be the going rate for fundraisers at College Hill. The MVB reception at the end of the season was $500 / person.

    7. That’s good thinking! It’s an idea to *expand the base* for donations. I am not against these fundraisers. I understand the necessity. But, UH Foundation is rigid when it comes to appealing to a broader spectrum of possible supporters. For example, a group of us lobbied UHF to offer lower priced tickets for Shoji’s retirement bash held at the Stan, in an attempt to open up the event to allow more people to attend, like families and young people. The arena could have been way more filled if there was a broader option for tickets. I knew quite a few people who wanted to attend, but couldn’t afford the extra layout of cash. Yes, ranting about something that took place in the past, but UHF needs to learn from that mistake.

    Like the team’s makeover this offseason.
    I see a uptempo offense this year.

    Good Luck 👍
    Be seeing you at all the games!!

    6. Agree! Didn’t mean to take your thinking away from you when I responded to 7./Kazu!
    It’s a realistic problem for UH Athletics to tackle. Doesn’t matter that mainland schools face the same challenges. That excuse just
    Makes it easier to ignore here.

    With the recent upgrades to some Big West Beach Volleyball programs, does Hawaii plan on upgrading its 2-court facility to at least 4 or 5 courts so that they can host on-campus tournaments?

  15. Cindy Luis July 10, 2019 2:19 pm

    8-9: from my experience, previous ones may have sold out but there always seemed to be room. Kind of a rolling event, not everyone showing up at the same time.
    It is a cool house, tho.
    11. agree with you. I also suggested cheaper tickets
    14. no real room to do such due to where the track and baseball stadium located. They may be able to upgrade the two courts over by the pool But for now tournaments will be at Queen’s.
