Gathering in Hawaii
Sep 7th, 2008 at 6:01pm
 
How about that gathering in Hawaii that we talked about at the Northwest gathering?

Should be getting pretty cold, wet and gray here come January. Not much business that time of year so, would gladly shut shop for a couple of weeks. And I have a free companion ticket from Alaska Airlines and just enough mileage points for a free ticket.

Still interested in organizing it, Jack and Linda?

Would Dr. Steinberg and his staff like to come? How about it Jill? Think you'll be ready for a tropical retreat about then?

How about all you folks in the islands - wanna do it? Smiley

Hi All Smiley...

It would be great for a retreat, it's almost always sunny and balmy here, except for the winter months when it can be very rainy and "gloomy", the temps rarely dip below the 60's.  Nonetheless, it's always green and cheerful.  Best bet would be in the summer time.  Hate to say this, but it is very expensive here.  At the moment I actually have a lot of things going on so I'm not able to organize anything, but I'll be more than happy to get some information.  Getting together in the islands would be great!! Smiley

Something to think about!!

Aloha,
Jan

You know I'm ALL for it!  ;Grin  I'd be more than willing to help organizing it too!  Just give me the dates and approximate number of attendees!  Event planning is what I do!  Wink  I would also send out an invitation to all the Hawaii Moyamoya Ohana, as we do have MMians here in Hawaii (all Islands).

Ooohhh....you got me all excited now!   Cheesy   Hope y'all do get to come!  I promise, with the Maitai's, Sex on the Beach (it's a drink!!), white sand beaches under blue sunny skies, hula girls and polynesian fire dancers...I'm sure you'll have a wonderful tiime!  Wink  Yes, I'll be sure they put the little umbrellas in your drinks!  Wink

Aloha!
Shan

Kim~

You pushed my 'adventure button' again!

It's already getting gloomy here in NW Calif.

I'm sensing a good time meeting more people who actually know what moyamoya is (just like at Langley!),  vacationing, kayaking, and having Sex On The Beach --- (please see Shan's previous post before coming to any conclusions!).

Thanks for getting this happening Kim,

Linda
Jack wants to get behind this gathering too!

Hello~

This gathering is still in the planning stage but the Islands sound so nice and warm compared to England, and most of the rest of the USA... it would be nice to meet you and your daughter.

Going to the annual mm gathering could be a good way to meet more people.. I suspect it will be in Vegas but I don't know that for sure....
Keep checking back to get details.

Is anyone from the Islands able to meet in Jan?!
I too an a fan of sunshine and  of meeting more of the mm'ers


8) Take care,

LA/     Linda
and toss Jack in for good luck!

Hi, or should I say "ALOHA" Linda... I sent both you and Jack an email today...

Of course! If anybody is in the area, I would love to meet with you!  ;Grin  You'd be surprised that this "rare" disease has affected many of us here in the Islands.

Our winter consists of rain...primarily in Dec and Jan, but it all depends on where you're at.  Nonetheless, if any of you want to come and visit us, please let me know, and I will do my best to provide you information regarding hotel accomodations, "must see" attractions, etc.  I know just relaxing on the white sandy beaches may be enough for some of you...  Wink

Just let me know!  I'd be glad to help.

Take care,
Shan

p.s.  I am still waiting on seeing some snow!!!!  Smiley
