Kelli did a fantastic job that night. As you see her pictures, you will certainly agree. I highly recommend her to everyone for being dependable and timely, artistic in her work, captured everything I wanted without being 'in the way' , and delivered to me the work I asked for. I highly recommend her and will use her again in future projects.

Aloha,
Ed Enos

2017 FUNDRAISING EVENT A HUGE SUCCESS!

THE BOARD MEMBERS OF THE DAVE LYMAN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND WANT TO SAY "THANK YOU" FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND SUPPORT.  WE TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR CONTINUED KOKUA IN HELPING US PROVIDE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN FROM HAWAII WHO ARE ATTENDING THE CALIFORNIA  MARITIME ACADEMY. WE COULD NOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOU ! 

OUR 2017 EVENT AT GORDON BIERSCH RESTAURANT ALONGSIDE THE T/S GOLDEN BEAR AND WITH MANY HAWAII CADETS ATTENDING, WAS AN INCREDIBLY SUCCESSFUL EVENT. WE HAD OVER 260 GUESTS THAT EVENING. WE RAISED OVER $47,000 IN TABLE AND SEAT PURCHASES. WE HAD AN ADDITIONAL SURGE OF DONATIONS BY MANY WHO COULD NOT ATTEND BUT WANTED TO SUPPORT OUR EFFORT. THIS AMOUNT WAS ALMOST $4000. FINALLY, WE HAD RAISED ALMOST $16,000 LATE LAST YEAR DURING THE 2016 AMERICAN PILOTS ASSOCIATION NATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD ON MAUI.

SO OUR TOTAL CONTRIBUTION INTO OUR ENDOWMENT FOR 2017 WILL BE OVER $67,000. THIS WILL PLACE THE TOTAL ENDOWMENT VALUE WELL OVER $300,000 TODAY. WE COULD NEVER HAVE BEEN THIS SUCCESSFUL WITHOUT YOUR FINANCIAL DONATION, YOUR MORAL SUPPORT, AND YOUR GENUINE KOKUA AND BELIEF IN WHAT WE ARE DOING.

MAHALO NI LOA FOR MAKING THIS EVENT ANOTHER FUN EVENING

AND FINANCIAL SUCCESS!

TS GOLDEN BEAR ARRIVES INTO HONOLULU HARBOR TOMORROW

The GOLDEN BEAR will be at the Honolulu Harbor Pilot Station at 1145 tomorrow, Tuesday 30th. Capt Ed Enos (CMA '87) and Apprentice Pilot Capt Ryan Hopkins will conduct the pilotage inbound. The BEAR should be alongside Pier 9 at Aloha Tower around 1230. The public is invited to greet the ship as she comes alongside. The pier is open to the public.

FOSS will be providing tug assist service for free. Hawaii Pilots Association will also be providing their services for free.

WE HAVE 240 CONFIRMED GUESTS SO FAR!

In the last few days before our event, we have over 240 guests confirmed attending our fundraiser. While we expect a few more last minute calls, we encourage everyone to contact Leilani first thing on Tuesday AM at her office (848-1259). We will not turn anyone away at the door, but seating for dinner may be a challenge. Please ensure you call in a reservation ASAP on Tuesday morning. SEE YOU ALL THERE!

ONE WEEK UNTIL THE 2017 LYMAN FUNDRAISING EVENT

LAST CALL! If you haven't already called Leilani, please do so today and reserve your seats now. Meeting with Gordon Biersch folks tomorrow for a head count and discuss details. So we want to ensure all who plan to go get on our list. We can likely take a few more next week at last minute. But best to let us know ASAP. Gonna be a great event!

LESS THAN TWO WEEKS UNTIL THE EVENT

We are attending to all the details of our fundraiser as we count down just a few more days until our June 1st event. I spoke with Captain Harry while at sea just the other day and he reports, "Everyone can't wait until we get to Hawaii!" Excitement is brewing aboard the BEAR. I know there are many families here in Hawaii that can't wait until the ship's arrival, too! Come on down to Aloha Tower on Wednesday the 30th. Meet the ship as it docks around 1530 (3:30 PM).

GOLDEN BEAR ARRIVING INTO HAWAII EARLY!

I received word directly from Capt. Harry Bolton that the T/S GOLDEN BEAR is arriving into Hawaii a bit early. She will be at the Honolulu Pilot Station on WEDNESDAY MAY 30TH AT 1500 (3:00 PM). The ship will be docking at the makai side of Aloha Tower complex, on Pier 9. The public will have access and be allowed on the pier when the ship arrives. This is an 'open' area to the public which is easily accessed by simply walking through the Aloha Tower/HPU complex or along pier 8 on the Diamond Head side, adjacent to Nashville Waikiki and Hooters. No ID is required.

For those on Maui, the T/S GOLDEN BEAR WILL ANCHOR OFF LAHAINA THE EVENING OF MAY 22ND. They remain at anchor in the Lahaina Roadstead until May 26th when they get underway at 0800 for sea. The BEAR typically remians slow steaming off the lee of Maui doing drills and maneuvering exercises until she heads for her Honolulu arrival.

TRAINING SHIP GOLDEN BEAR ON HER WAY TO HAWAII

The T/S GOLDEN BEAR departed El Salvador and is on her way to Hawaii. Next stop, Lahaina, Maui on May 23. Not certain of schedule once the ship arrives. Sometimes they do drills and 'rubber docking' maneuvers. At some point, they may anchor and allow cadets ashore. Standby for more info.
