This was a fun race. It's just too bad the food ran out before all the paddlers ate.

True- but I think the folks in the front of the line maybe got more - sure went well with the Steinlager and there was all of that you wanted- I had too much! When I got there all was left was the beans but they were great. Everyone who stayed got stuff-that was way cool. The people who won the Makana Alii paddles sure were stoked- good for them! Main thing- good fun, nice weather!!

Sorry to the people who missed on the food, some of the people were stacking thier plates and we didn't put that into the equation when we ordered food. We hoped you all enjoyed it non the less, it was for all of you who support us and the sport. By the way, theres an old saying "beer is food" had plenty there, Thankyou Calvin and the rest of the sponsors who helped take care of the paddlers.

i'm testing the beer is food theory tonight and it seems to be working. i'm not hungry at all.

About the food- I was just commenting -not complaining. Won a cool shirt and had more than enough beer to compensate. I was totally stoked that my friend won one of the paddles. Mahalo Kai and everyone elso who put this on.

This is no scientific fact,but it seems like most of the bloggers here are drinkers. I talked to several people that were pretty bummed that there wasn't enough food. At least half the paddlers didn't get to eat. After a race you're thirsty for sure,but REALLY HUNGRY!!! Those that won prizes were stoked but for what people pay for entry fees, food after a race is pretty much expected. Good lesson for next time...servers that monitor the first round of helpings. Better to have leftovers than nothing left.
