PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Greetings Fellow Members!
It's hard to believe we’re heading into the "home stretch" of another year! I hope you're enjoying your travel adventures, whether active or "arm-chair." Please consider presenting a program on your travels! It's great to hear from our own members on where they've been!
We have another schedule of exciting programs in store for you, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Bill Chapman, our 1st VP and Program Chair. Do plan to join us for one or more of them, and consider bringing a guest and prospective member. The continued success of our club depends on each of us!
Aloha,   Lowell Angell, President

Our sincere condolences to his wife Jackie, who has also been a longtime Club member and officer, and to his family. He will be missed.

  • If RSVP’ing by email: PLEASE NOTE “ADV CLUB RSVP” as the subject. Our reservationists prefer email RSVP’s.
  • Outrigger Canoe Club Update: PLEASE NOTE: The club has changed the dining and program seating configuration and seating is now limited. Our reservationist will take a waitlist once we have reached the maximum number and those on the waitlist will be advised if space becomes available. IMPORTANT: To insure fairness to all members and our volunteer reservationist, RSVP’s WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED BEGINNING THE FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH for that month's program. (e.g., beginning May 1st for the May 18th program).  REMINDER: COFFEE AND TEA ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH YOUR MEAL. Tickets must be purchased with cash upon check-in from reservationist, same for beer, wine, mixed drinks and soft drinks.
  •  Reminder: For each meeting, once you have called in your RSVP and given your entrĂ©e choice, it is NOT possible to change it later, including the evening of the program. The entrĂ©e selections are called in to the restaurant following the RSVP deadline and they prepare only that number of each entree. This ensures faster, easier service and is part of the agreement we make with the restaurant, so PLEASE KOKUA!
