Another year has now gone by and we want to THANK all those who helped make it possible.  Not only this year, but over the past 16 years! 

We are truly grateful to have made it this far despite challenges, trials and tribulations - we have been blessed to be able to continue on thus far. 

Our hope is that we'll be able to carry on with our event next year.  If we do, we are highly considering a different location. 

Please visit our website in May 2014 to confirm if we will be having a 17th annual event and if the location will be changed.  The event is always held on the 2nd weekend in August.  For 2014, the dates would be August 9th and 10th. 

We are hopeful and look forward to an event next year.  Until then........


To all who helped make this event possible
Mauruuru Roa!
