Skip the formalities

Put away the silverware.

Ditch the long speeches.

At the suggestion of head coach Norm Chow, plans are in the works to replace the pricey end-of-year banquet with a luau.

For all but one year the past three decades, the Warriors’ annual banquet was held in a Waikiki hotel. Chow’s suggestion is to have a luau on the grass practice field. There will be food tents, live entertainment and, because of an affordable admission fee that would cover only the food and entertainment, more friends, family and fans.

If the fee were, say, $25 each, Chow said, “a family of four can come for $100. If you have a banquet, it will cost $400. I don’t know if people are wealthy around here, but that’s a lot of money.”

Chow said he prefers the simplicity of an informal luau.

Besides, he said, with a luau, “you don’t have to figure out which is your bread plate and which is your water glass.”

In 1995, head coach Bob Wagner was fired with a game remaining. He was allowed to coach in the season finale. The annual banquet wasn’t so fortunate. It was canceled.

But then running back Tupu Alualu decided to take control. He organized a team party at the Saint Louis School Clubhouse. There was plenty of food, live entertainment and, because of the affordable price, a packed clubhouse.

Not sure how long it takes to dot an “i”or cross a “t,” but UH is entering the fourth week of the fall semester, and it should be any moment when Sean Carney will be announced as the new assistant coach for the volleyball Warriors. After all, there is no “i” or “t” in “Sean Carney.”

He’ll replace Vernon Podlewski, who resigned in June.

    It’s bread plate on the left, water glass on the right.

    I usually have to wait for the nine other people to drink their water before I know which glass is mine.

    QB-Tannahill not workin for Miami; imo. Too many plays going Reggie Bush’s way, or is it just me??

    I notice that usually if a play is not going Bess’s way he doesn’t even look back for the ball at all, in case the previous play breaks down???

  17. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 8:58 am

    There have been interesting recent banquets.

    A couple of years ago, emcee Rick Blangiardi was in the round. Which would have been good if the stage rotated. But, alas, it didn’t — and several of us had a view of Blangiardi’s okole the entire night.


  18. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 8:59 am

    Gigi:

    I’m sure they can work it out where you can watch the luau at home on HD.

  26. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 9:02 am

    The one thing I couldn’t understand about banquets was each four-year letterwinner going up on stage.

    And then every senior went on stage.

    That was redundant.

    And repetitive.


  27. gigi-hawaii September 9, 2012 9:04 am

    At the reunion, they showed pictures of the deceased classmates. Over 100 dead. And hubby is only 63.

    Lots of people were laid off from work and had to apply for Social Security when they turned 62.


  28. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 9:04 am

    And then after last year’s banquet, chancellor Hinshaw went into the I‘ao Room.

    Then JD the AD went into the room.

    And then McMackin started walking toward that room. Without his wife. It was surreal, like a horror movie. Somebody should have yelled: “Don’t go in the room. You won’t come out with a job.”

    But, alas . . .


  29. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 9:05 am

    That’s very sad. That’s way too many deceased.

    And if you’re scoring at home:

    What used to be Cooke Field is now Ching athletic complex.

    And what used to be the grass practice field is now Cooke Field.

    Gym I, Gym II and Klum Gym remain the same.

    LUAU…awesome


  35. AlaWai September 9, 2012 9:15 am

    Great idea for a team lu`au. Can replace the senior walk and put up a big ten in Richardson Field after the last game for a late supper. Would draw more people to the game and a great way for the seniors to say Aloha.


  36. Da Punchbowl Kid September 9, 2012 9:15 am

    mctruck –

    Dat Fricken kickin at the Penn St. game left da Nittany Lions cryin. Hate to be in that kicker’s shoes today… better luck to him in the future.


  37. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 9:16 am

    The Senior Walk will be better because there will be fewer people clustering around the locker room entrance.

    And I’m pretty sure they’ll just pass out the plaques at the luau instead of the pause-and-pose procedures of recent senior walks. Hey, the plaques are water-proof. They’ll make excellent trays.


  38. d1shima September 9, 2012 9:20 am

    My hope for the Senior Walk is that it returns “to its roots” and just have the players walk the perimeter of the field and receive lei and well-wishes from Breena and Bruddah Lunch Bento and their Keiki.


  39. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 9, 2012 9:22 am

    The luau sounds like fun.

    While a lot of work, I would love to see a “Taste of Honolulu” type event for UH. Lots of parking and a lot of open space for vendors. I think they make pretty good money too.


  40. laulau head September 9, 2012 9:26 am

    laulau head loves luaus…and I’m loving coach Chow more by the day!!!!


  41. Capitolist/WassupDoc September 9, 2012 9:26 am

    Very interesting about the luau proposal. This Thursday evening, there’s a Wahine volleyball fund-raiser at The Stan for $95 per ticket. We will not be attending because it will cost the two of us $190.

    I am surprised that the ticket prices are so high since most of the fans are NOT part of the downtown business community. .

    I did attend this year’s Pigskin Pigout but DrDoc had to attend a board meeting so I took a container with me and filled it up with food and took it home for him. All I ate was a slice of cheese pizza at the event because I’m a veggiebubblion.

    Off to work – and a workout afterwards – and then the volleyball matches this afternoon.


  42. d1shima September 9, 2012 9:26 am

    So far RGIII is the only positive from this class of phenoms.

    Weeden and Tannehill both have 3 int’s and 0 TD’s

    Luck just threw his first TD but not before 2 pics

    Brilliant, posting about the the Chow Luau here. Two of the most important things in Tsaiko’s worlds are Football, and Food!

    I like Chow’s idea of returning things to the common folks like me…Sign me up.


  53. Slugger September 9, 2012 9:53 am

    Love the idea that the Coach proposed for the year end “banquet”. It’s more Hawaiian. I’d go. Have people bring their own lounge chairs; makes it feel like a T-Gate. Cut the cost of the chair rental.

    You could charge $25 for admission for the luau and then include an optional donation in the ticket price. Families might only be able to afford the luau admission or a little bit more. Others might step up & donate more than the $100 previously charged.


  54. Bowwar September 9, 2012 9:56 am

    I truly appreciate the Pigskin Pigout, but politicians put on $25 per person “stew & rice” fundraisers all the time…What if the UH did a fundraiser at Aloha stadium or Ching Field to fundraiser? I bet they would sell-out!


  55. Bowwar September 9, 2012 9:59 am

    Slugger: I agree that’s the “local” way. If people can put more in the calabash bowl they will. Bottom line, more families will attend & they would broaden their support in the community.


  56. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 10:02 am

    UH has enough auction dinners.

    Going back to $20 and $25 outings is a good way to connect.

    As for the end-of-the-year luau, they’re not trying to make money. It’s about bonding and looking back at the regular season.


  57. wafan September 9, 2012 10:02 am

    Did Greenwood personally know about the luau . . . before the idea hit the press? Or is she going to have to lie, again, about not knowing anything about it?

    Did they run the idea up the chain of approval?

    Was the identity of the folks representing the various performing groups determined?

    Did someone actually approve cancellation insurance BEFORE selling tickets. Heck, since the PR has already, apparently started, did the AD and everyone else above (including the custodians and grounds-keepers) sign-off on the approval?

    Does the BOR have their story straight? Or will they need another 7+ hour meeting to create a coverup with Greenwood?

    Who will the chancellor declare to be a super-duper employee that has already achieved just about everything possible in his or her current position? Does that person have enough political clout to survive the investigation that will point directly to another failure at the president’s office?

    Who will name the members of the “UH-M Long Range Study Group to Provide Formative Information on the Possibility of Investigating the Futures Committee on Requesting Specific Funding and Approval for the End-of-Year Football Luau” and the subsequent “Sub-Committee to Approve a Luau Celebrating All Sports and Academic Successes So As Not to Single Out or Leave Out Any Overly-Sensitive Individual or Group Because We Are In It All Together and Should Celebrate Everything Or Risk Hurting Someone or Something”? Not to mention a full EIS . . . just because.


  58. d1shima September 9, 2012 10:06 am

    wafan,

    You jus kidding us, eh? You actually listening in all dem meetings!


  59. wafan September 9, 2012 10:06 am

  60. wafan September 9, 2012 10:07 am

    I think I bruised my brain.


  61. wafan September 9, 2012 10:09 am

    d1 . . .

    Nah. Just like the administration here at school. More committees and sub-committees just makes it harder to nail the administration with ignorance and incompetence.


  62. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 10:09 am

    I think they’re convening a 15-member pupu search committee.


  63. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 10:11 am

    If the luau is on a Sunday, i hope the parking folks get the day off.


  64. AlaWai September 9, 2012 10:13 am

    Sign me up for the lu`au. 4 tickets. I can afford dat.


  65. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 10:13 am

    Jets need a Larry.

    They have a Mo and Kerley.


  66. Slugger September 9, 2012 10:14 am

    A $25 luau admission is also affordable for students! You’d get more students to the luau, thus more student support as they get to meet the student-athletes. And it’s on campus which is easy to get to.

    At NAU, the Hawaiian club kept the luau on campus at a $25 ticket price to ensure that the students could attend. We always sell out in the campus ballroom. Decided not to move it off campus to a larger venue making it harder for the students to go. The luau is to share our Hawaiian culture with the campus (& community). UH can do the same with an on-campus luau for FB.


  67. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 10:16 am

    The Jets’ post-game show is called “The fifth Quarter.”

    That’s right up there with giving 110 percent.

  68. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 10:20 am

    It might be lower than $25. That was a number he threw out as an example.

    But it definitely won’t be higher than that.

  74. Garret September 9, 2012 10:55 am

    Great idea of having an event for just $25 that can enable so many others to attend! That will promotethe team better, be a better event for the student-athletes since they will be able to have more of their family and friends there and meet more fans.


  75. Garret September 9, 2012 11:00 am

    Sagarin ratings for the MWC. The ratings still are partially dependent on last year’s results, but after week 2 this is a lot more representative than after week 1. EVERY MWC team has at least 1 loss already and it is week 2 of the season! Sadly, that means that there won’t be a BCS buster from the MWC and UH won’t get their cut of that money.

    17 Boise State

    36 Nevada

    EVERY C-USA school has at least 1 loss and there are no non-AQ schools that are rated high enough to get a BCS spot. UH would get a cut if any non-AQ school made it…but this year the AQ conferences will get to keep their money. Sagarin rankings of some other teams of interest:

    DPK ~ Chowlau? Auwe noho’i!

    I envision all your Kupuna gathering over Manoa to banish you from the Kingdom for that menu change. Let’s maintain some dignity to the affair even if we are not using a bread plate or water glass as we did at KS-Kapalama. So just be sure to wear clean bvdees, undaneet your Aloha attire and ‘new’ rubbah slippahs. (jez kidding da Keeed!)

    Seriously, this is a great way to end the season. Many more people will be able to celebrate the end of the season WITH the players in a more ‘ohana atmosphere. Every dinner banquet we attended in the past was an endless line of players marching across the stage. The only entertainment was when a faux pas was made in their 3 second acceptance speech. Soon after, the Sheraton staff started to clear the tables and swept you out the door as if to say, we validated your parking ticket…you had your dinner, now go home! This time, coach will make it pono for HIS inaugural team. The friends, families and fans will feel more welcome.

    This is going to be the end of a memorable season…I feel it in my bones.


  83. Garret September 9, 2012 11:25 am

    Ohio is at #34 and has a weak schedule the rest of the season, one of the weakest left in D-IA. In other words, if they win out they won’t even be in the top 20 and they need to be much higher than that to be a BCS buster.

  94. d1shima September 9, 2012 12:03 pm

    Donate one package of luau plates or bowls and get $2 off campus parking.

    An affordable luau is a great idea to help average families connect to UH sports. This is contrasted by the growth of PPV (e.g. yesterday’s and today’s home Wahine VB matches), and the UH administration’s response to the Stevie Wonder concert scam. Hopefully more good ideas will follow.


  96. d1shima September 9, 2012 12:08 pm

    We had an annual luau when I was in grade skoo.

    Erryting made from scratch…imu da pig, cut tomatoes and onions for the lomi salmon, every family donate one box cornstarch for the haupia or one bag rice, or aforementioned vegetables.

    The prep would start in earnest when one of the Dads would drive a pick into the ground and tell us keeds for start husking coconuts!

    Howzit Tsaikos!

    A luau sounds like a nice idea, especially since NaKoa, et al puts on so many fundraisers for the Warriors. Other sports still need the auction-type fundraisers. I guess the end-of-season awards will be done privately.

    Congrats to Sean Carney! Had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with him at one of the booster club potlucks. Really nice guy. Of course, all the volleyball guys are nice. Still hope to see Vern & family in the stands next season.

    GO WAHINE!!

    Actions speak louder than words….one coach can say we play for you but when questioned answers by saying “go get your own team”….

    Another says let’s do it together then proceeds to take the program back to the people. If you want the public’s support then make it a program the public relates too.

    Having honor for the fallen, pounding Kalo and teaching the culture. Coach NC gets it, he really truly does, I’ve been waiting years to get behind a coach like this. The winning will come as a byproduct of hard work and integrity. We don’t have to be a sideshow to gain support. Just plain old hard work and focus…..

    Just like my folks raised us.

    67 bags were polished off in the morning.

    Oy vey!


  117. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 1:28 pm

    Carolina’s leading rusher today was … Kealoha Pilares.


  118. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2012 1:30 pm

    At six bagels per bag, that comes out to a mere 402 bagels.

    No word yet on the fruit and nuts total.


  119. kev-1 September 9, 2012 1:30 pm

    one was polished off on the way back from Costco


  120. wafan September 9, 2012 1:30 pm

    6 bagels survived?

    Or was part of the bag opened?


  121. kev-1 September 9, 2012 1:34 pm

    You see? UH is never going to be able to compete with the USC’s of football if we can’t eat all the bagels.

    No can win!

  134. Old School Dave September 9, 2012 2:32 pm

    Noticed that the Channel 2 and Channel 4 sports highlighted some of the local players now playing at mainland schools. While they mentioned several local boys playing for BYU in their game against Weber State, they failed to mention Michael Hoke from Kamehameha-Kapalama, who is the starting QB for WSU. Though outmanned against BYU, Weber played hard throughout the game, before losing 45-13.


  135. jm2375 September 9, 2012 2:33 pm

    mctruck – Kealoha was Carolina’s leading rusher today with a total of … 5 yds.


  136. HiFlyer September 9, 2012 2:53 pm

    Glad to see Kealoha got some PT today.


  137. Old School Dave September 9, 2012 2:59 pm

    I believe that UH used to have a luau on campus back in the 50s. Seemed to have been a lot more student spirit on campus back then. When I lived in Seattle, UW’s Hawaii Club Luau was a big deal with local food and lei being shipped or brought there by relatives and family members who traveled there.


  138. Wes'side Warrior September 9, 2012 3:18 pm

    Howzit, everyone!

    Busy weekend for us, but lots of fun.

    Hope you all had a great weekend, and are recharged for another super week!

    Love the whole thought process behind this luau! Keep ’em coming, Coach! That’s the way to do it!


  139. Kekoa September 9, 2012 3:33 pm

    Slugger ~

    Will there be a bevy of Hula Sisters gracing the stage at the Luau?

    BHF2 ~ How about a rousing Hilo Haka to open the festivities?


  140. wafan September 9, 2012 3:55 pm

    Anyone know if the Warrior/Lamar game will be streamed?


  141. Richfromoc September 9, 2012 4:14 pm

    I took an etiquette class for work that easily identifies which bread plate and water glass is yours. It’s hard to explain but it’s pretty easy.


  142. Ipu Man September 9, 2012 4:14 pm

    How about a senior walk for senior citizens…


  143. Ipu Man September 9, 2012 4:14 pm

    And a pot luck luau.


  144. al September 9, 2012 4:15 pm

    there’s an awful large number of uh alumni who might want to help produce and perform on stage for the luau.

    …not to mention the father of a former uh running back who is the largest producer of polynesian shows in hawaii. oh and that running back is also a great singer/entertainer in his own right.

    okay, the list could go on and on.

    kanikapila in the old hawaiian style.


  145. Ipu Man September 9, 2012 4:16 pm

    Oh…old school Dave mentions a pot luck luau, too…


  146. al September 9, 2012 4:18 pm

    1,000 people?

    can?

    of course can!

    there’s a tsaiko who has coordinated larger banquets than that and would be willing to donate his efforts and time for the home team.


  147. WarriorNY September 9, 2012 4:19 pm

    @140,

    Lamar/UH will be part on PPV streaming through Oceanic.


  148. ai-eee-soos September 9, 2012 4:26 pm

    … hold the luau in the SSC, when there’s no other kine game is scheduled.

    got plenty room for a stage; plenty room for food tables; plenty room for

    guests’ tables; and can sit in the stands if not enough room.

    No need to worry about the weather.

    And maybe most important of all – Get indoor plumbing.


  149. SteveM September 9, 2012 4:28 pm

    There might be public health issues with a pot luck of such magnitude…not mention the contract with the UH fuud caterer… if it must be catered, can the price still be under $25?

    Hmmm…now if the food was donated by registered restaurants and caterers….


  150. Ipu Man September 9, 2012 4:32 pm

    To control food possible contamination, limit the food to a can of beans

    per person and a can opener…


  151. SteveM September 9, 2012 4:34 pm

  173. Slugger September 9, 2012 8:57 pm

    No can do pot luck if student-athletes are in attendance. Also iffy to have restaurants donate food. NCAA compliance violations.

    Indoor plumbing…that is a good thing to have available, especially with the number of people the luau would draw. And if this is an end-of-season celebration, it might be raining in December.

    Night all!


  174. SteveM September 9, 2012 9:07 pm

    Slugger — good point on the NCAA violation. But would it be a violation if ALL UH students were invited free?


  175. I have been surfing online greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely price sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more useful than ever before.

BINOCULARS HELP (I HAVE 10×50’s, AND CANNOT SEE NEWSPAPER-SIZED FONTS) ONLY SO MUCH; I BET THERE A LOT OF OTHER FANS IN THEIR 40’S AND UP THAT ARE IN THE SAME PREDICAMENT.

    OF ALL THE NEGATIVES THAT HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH U.H. FOOTBALL SINCE 1954, THIS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT NOT RENEWING ALL MY SEASON TICKETS; ON TV, AT LEAST THE ANNOUNCERS WILL TELL YOU WHO IS DOING WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY DURING THE PLAYS.

    ALLAN…

    there’s alternatives…

    i know i am not the only one who knows a player by jersey number. and as the season goes on you will be more familiar with jersey number alone. it takes a little time but it’ll happen.

    Last name is nice as a reference, but not necessary. if you are 40ish and up then you as a young one remember going through the program and acquainting yourself with the team by jersey number on the player roster.

    Programs, big screen replays, and p.a. stadium announcers all add up if you give it a chance.

    I’m guessing, the annual banquests for football is also fundraisers, so cutting costs may impact the amounts the booster club donates to the team. Also luau on the fields will be more work than having it in a hotel (e.g., catering trucks, tents, tables, porta potties, etc.). Also have you seen the price of poi? $25 per head not enough….

    Sorta off-topic:

    Restroom problem in SSC being addressed, but:

    Meanwhile, she said the Facilities Management Office is in the early design phase to completely replace the water booster pump and other plumbing equipment throughout the arena.

    “Early design phase”… meaning the project will be finished in 2024. 😈

    its been studied and documented that it is more difficult to read ALL CAPS IN PRINT because the human eye is not trained to do such.


  216. al September 10, 2012 7:48 am

    okay, okay, not the eye but the brain.
