Aloha all! Just a blast via our horn blowin exercise:

Love to report that the 'Ukulele Guild of Hawaii has just been selected for an award at the Keep It Hawaii 2004, 13th Annual Awards put on by the Hawaii Tourist Authority and the Hawaii Visitors Bureau.
UGH entered in the very competitive "Events" category and supah member Sam Au put together a beautiful presentation, along with a power point supplement, showcasing our past Second Annual 'Ukulele Exhibition and Conference that was held last November at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Hotel.

Sam and I were present at the Luncheon and were excited as the guild's name was announced as recipients of the prestigous Kahili Award, gee our UGH poster flashed on the Jumbo screen and Sam stood up and proudly accepted the award on UGH's behalf.

Mahalo Sam for your efforts.....no forget join the 'Ukulele Guild of Hawaii..its a good organization that shares uke info to all members! Membership is 35.00 per year, the monthly newsletter is worth the application fee. Send check to :
''Ukulele Guild of Hawaii

appearance by Aunty Genoa Keawe was a show stopper! The entertainment followed with Jim and Liz Beloff doing duets and then introducing the likes of Lyle Ritz, Ohtasan and John King...awesome. The artist soloed for a few numbers and joined in a hana hou jam!

Saturdays event featured all kine seminars on building, uke theory, playing styles and strummin with presenters the likes of Doctor Byron Yasui, Hiram Bell, Jim Beloff, Lyle Ritz, Benny Chong, kimo Hussey, Terry Brown ,Sam Au, Bryan Tolentino , Gordon Mark and Canadian James Hill. For the builders we had seminars with Mike daSilva,
Nathan Ching, Chad Linsay, Norman Takeya and myself Mike Chjock aka ukeman. This went on simultaneously in 3 seminar rooms from 9am to 5pm.  unreal!

Saturday Night we hosted a concert with:
Karen Keawehawii as emcee and openning with Bryan Tolentino and the Side Order Band and another magic guest appearance by Aunty Genoa Keawe....followed by John King, Doctor Byron Yasui, Lyle Ritz, James Hill and Benny Chong. The evening closed with an onstage jam session!

The exhibition featured 25 to 30 custom ukes with 15 vendor tables and a whole lot of kanikapila and good times! If ya wasn't there yu missed an unreal event and best ready yourself for next year.......laters  ukeman
