Dear Mr. Ellison

Dear Mr. Ellison: We understand you now own most of lanai and you are an avid competitor. We in Hawaii have had a problem putting together an outrigger crew that can beat the Tahitian crews in our own channel. What we need is a dedicated approach that would cherry pick our best young paddlers and place them under the tutelage of an awesome coach. Wow...Lanai seems like a good venue for that. Lodging, maybe some income and a concerted effort to put together the same sort of program you have so successfully done with your America's Cup teams. Imagine "Team Oracle" winning the channel on behalf of the place where you are now Konohiki and the rest of the islands. Its a pono thing to do, will create good will to back up your other projects ( Hawaii as an America's Cup venue) and a great promotion for Lanai and Island Air. Think about it,.

while we're at it, why not a team on every island?
