Order of Business

Guest Speaker: Ken introduced his neighbor, Scott Robbs, who is the announcer of all University of Hawaii sports for Spectrum TV. Scott filled us in how he came into the business and where each of the UH teams currently stand. Don’t expect too much next season for either football or basketball. And, we recently lost the best women’s volleyball player to Canada. There’s hope for the future, but all teams are presently fairly flat-lined.
