Sparky Kawamoto Meet on the Big Island

On March 1 and 2 the Splash team flew over to Hilo on the Big Island to attend the Sparky Kawamoto Meet.  In addition to swimming the meet in the morning, the team did fun activities in the afternoon like a trip out to Akaka falls and a trip to Two Ladies Kitchen for mochi.  From Coach Ryan:


"Thanks again for a great and fun-filled weekend.  It was great watching the kids having fun, swimming with determination, competing on the relays and just getting to know everyone a bit better at the Welcome Dinner Friday night, hiking Akaka Falls, eating at Tex's restaurant on going on our Ice Cream hunt last night.
Thanks for Shane Imai for graciously coordinating the Two Ladies Kitchen mochi pick up.  And special thanks for the three brave dads who competed and showed us how its done in the "Inner Tube" relay...thanks David Choo, Tom Broderick and Kyle guys were the highlight of the meet (next to the kids swimming, of course).
Special acknowledgements go out swimmers Hannah Gang (100 Fly & 100 Back), Noelle Dagdagan (100 Fly) for setting Sparky Meet records.
Thanks for taking and supporting your swimmers at the Sparky Meet...i know they will remember this trip forever, and both Coach Ashley and I look forward to our next great adventure with all of you and your families."
