Tale of the Whale April, 2011 Newsletter of the 835 Front Street Lahaina Yacht Club Lahaina, Maui, HI 96761 E-Mail: LYCOFFICE@aol.com 661-0191 Boomvanger Chili Cookoff It was the Boomvangers Chili Cookoff and here’s the winning team. They were a new entry this year and sorta stole the show. They won first prize for their chili and also won best motif. I wrote down their names, but they may be in the wrong order. From the right is Anna Marie, who organized the team, then Kawaiola, Nancy, Mohalapua and Nell. They called their chili Divalicious! Second Place Second Place in the Chili Cookoff went to Bear Mulligan’s team with their “Tribute to Elizabeth Taylor” chili. With him is Lori Nunn, a partner in the 2nd place chili. The club was packed on this Sunday with chili tasting, hot dog eating and perhaps some cocktail enjoyment. The auction went very well with lots of donated items to bid on. There was a silent auction followed by a live auction with several volunteer auctioneers to keep it going.

The Port Captain and I went down to Lahaina Harbor FISHING TOURNAMENT around 4pm on March 11 and watched the churning water. We took a few photos of the ruined docks and Sat & Sun – May 14 & 15 then drove down Front Street. Wasn´t it fantastic to see the Club open for business that day? It is with great pleasure (and no small relief) that I am able to report that we still have a ´House and Grounds´ after LAHAINA HARBOR the tsunami! The moorings will be checked as soon as it can be arranged, and any damages will be Sponsored By repaired. Snickers sustained only minimal damage.
