I've got good news, and bad news about our 55th Reunion Picnic:
First, the GOOD NEWS: The Picnic will be held as planned on Sunday June 9th, 2019 from 10 to 4 at Kalama Beach Club, 280 North Kalaheo Avenue, Kailua Hawaii 96734.
Now the BAD NEWS: The catastrophic Nu’uanu landslide of February 17th which closed the Pali tunnel is still affecting traffic at least through the end of June as road construction crews continue the permanent stabilization and repair work.
In odda werdz? No can use da Pali, yeh?
SO HERE'S WHAT YOU DO
If you’re coming from East Oahu, come around Waimanalo side, stay
on Kalanianaole Highway until it ends at Castle Junction. Then turn right on Pali Highway (now cleverly name changed to Kailua Road) into Kailua town. The big intersection with the light in Kailua town has Oneawa Street on the left. Once Again, the straight ahead road to the beach, which you’d think would still be Kailua Road, is now cleverly name changed to Ku’ulei Road. What you’d think would be Oneawa street on the right, is now Kailua Road. Don’t take that. Go straight on Ku’ulei Road, and take it until it ends at a T-shaped intersection. This is Kalaheo Avenue. Turn left, and you’re on North Kalaheo Avenue. Go about .7 miles, and there it is on
the right. Plainly marked. It says Kalama Beach Club. Ho, da clevvah, yeh dese folks?
If you’re in Honolulu, use Likelike Highway and the Wilson Tunnel. Take Likelike (Highway 63) into Kaneohe Town to the intersection with Kamehameha (Highway 83) Turn right, go until it ends at a T-shaped intersection with Pali (Highway 61). Turn left, and repeat the same directions as before into Kailua.
If you’d prefer to use H-3 from Honolulu, take it all the way to the penultimate H-3 exit, right onto Kaneohe Bay Drive. (If you go straight, you’ll end up at the Kaneohe Marine Corps Main Gate.) It’s a 180 degree loop exit, and when it comes to the intersection with Kaneohe Bay Drive, turn left, NOT right. About a mile later, you’ll come to the intersection with a light. This is the intersection with Mokapu Boulevard. And once again, go straight. For yes, yet another name change! And voila! Kaneohe Bay Drive is now… North Kalaheo Avenue. Only this time, you’ll find that Kalama Beach Club is about a mile down the road on your left, since you’re
coming from the opposite direction relative to the Waimanalo and Likelike instructions. But yuno, samesame destination, anh? Asswaihod. Minah. We go eat.
Of course, you could always Google it, and laugh at Siri or whomever is butchering Hawaiian pronunciations. Whatever floats your 55th reunion boat.
Dassit Fanau. See you odea.
Bill ... yah, Sage!
