Hope the name doesn't offend anyone. Told Wong I wasn't offended but he did change it from the original Portagee.
The University of Hawaii Sand Volleyball program will host the inaugural Portuguese Horseshoe Tournament on Sunday, Sept. 8 at Hunakai Park in Kahala. It's 2:30-6 pm. The concept is throwing large washers into a box instead of horseshoes toward a stake.
The fundraiser will include a meet-and-greet with coaches and players, volleyball demos, heavy pupus and drinks, and a chance to win great prizes.
Those interested in attending can register online at http://uhalumni.org/s/1220/uhfTemplate/event.aspx?sid=1220&gid=1&pgid=1434&content_id=1514 or by sending in a completedregistration form. You can also directly contribute to the sand volleyball program through Na Koa at https://giving.uhfoundation.org/give/giving-gift.aspx?allocation=12600204&site=AKA. All donations will be matched up to $25,000. Supporters can also donate prizes.
