Safety and Preparedness at Workshops
Welcome back members to an exciting year with High School Hikers! Starting off with our annual Fall Hikers Workshops held this past Saturday, September 25, 1999 at Kamehameha Schools.
Approximately 90 students, teachers, hike leaders and support
people came out to teach, learn and have fun!
Then everyone hele on over to their respective workshops. Brian and Buck of Camp Erdman offered their teamwork and leadership skills on Low Ropes, Scott Rowland of the University of Hawaii showed some great slides on Volcanology of the Big Island, Atomman Kim did an excellent demonstration on Backpacking gear, even with the rain the Tents workshop by Marc Morinaga went without a hitch, Jim Yuens Knots was very educational, First Aid by Mark Lee was fun and exciting, and John Cummings offered some cool Day Hiking gear and information. After a couple sessions lunch was served and thank you Kamehameha for the wonderful refreshments!
Paradise Pursuits, the TV high school science game modeled after the game Jepardy, was a fun way to meet students from other schools.
Thank you Bonnie Fujii and Alicia Rogan for doing a great
job of chairing. And mahalo to Kamehameha for
