STATE TOURNAMENT Tsunami Updates

I’ll consolidate all the latest news about the state tournament here.

The formal announcement from the HHSAA:

Due to the tsunami warning, the HHSAA State Wrestling Championships will be rescheduled to Sunday, February 28, 2010.  Weigh-ins will begin at 7 a.m. (scratch weight plus 4 pounds).  Wrestling will begin immediately after weigh-ins and wrestling will continue, without break, until completion.  Further information will be provided as it becomes available.

To our Punahou Ohana:
The HHSAA is concerned that many of the neighbor island competitors and their families may not be able to get flights out tomorrow after the tournament. Punahou and McKinley have offered their gyms for families to stay at and we have been asked to provide additional kokua. Depending upon the number of stranded families, we may need to help with extra blankets, pillows, etc. for the families staying at the gyms, as well as possibly coordinating a potluck Sunday evening. If there are a smaller number of families stuck overnight, we may ask for families willing to be hosts for an overnight stay.

The situation is obviously very much in flux, so I will provide updates as needs become clearer. I just wanted to give the ohana a heads-up. THANK YOU in advance for your support!
