R & R: Rants and Rambles from da Clueless Wahine
Howzit! It’s gonna be difficult to follow BIK and Mrs. C, but I’ll try.
On Sunday, I attended the MPI halau performance, entitled “R & R”. In keeping with that theme, I’m doing some R & R – ranting and rambling. So, here goes.
As has been stated many times on this blog and other places, the crowds at UH sports events tend to be older. UH needs to start getting the younger crowd to come in and the “free” student section is a start. BUT, I’d love to see more families at the events. I think we’re seeing that, especially at baseball and softball. As a parent, I’d like to see UH make student (HS & under) tickets available for the lower levels/sidelines. Right now, the kids are relegated to the upper levels/end zones. I’d be willing to pay a little more per ticket for the better seats. It would look better on TV and get the crowd more engaged. And if you’re not gonna cheer loud, then go sit upstairs!
Non-Manoa UH system students should also be to get reduced price tickets.
UH has a Kid’s Club, but nothing for teens. It would be great if there was a club or a section close to the UH student section for teens. Or even allow them to sit in the student section. Get them rooting for UH BEFORE they get college, so even if they don’t go to UH, you’ve got lifelong fans.
This past season, the Screechers and I joined the Warrior Volleyball booster club. It was a wonderful experience. The boys are some of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and are always willing to talk to the fans. We will be back next year.
Here are some pictures from the Banquet held last month.
Former Wahine Kelly Ong (2nd row far left) was the team’s statistician.

This is the only time Nick Castello can look Jonas Umlauft in the eye.
Count yourself a Warrior Volleyball expert if you can name everyone in the picture without looking it up. Extra points if you can name the guy in the top right. He’s the manager.
Well, thanks for allowing me to rant and rave. Play nice.
GO WAHINE! GO BOWS!!
