Hawaii Pony Regional State Tournament:

Hilo Black became Bronco busters by claiming the state crown in a 4-1 title win over Lihue over the 4th of July setting off fireworks in our community.
The Hilo squad is made up of Kelii Montibon, Makana Aiona, Treysen Ishimoto, Jaisten Cabatbat, Trayden Tamiya, Brett Komatsu, Dallas Duarte, Kein Uyeda, Joey Ongais, Shaun Kurosawa, Robert Narimatsu, Kenrick Uyeda Kurosawa, Caleb Freitas-Fields and coach Vincent Killeen.
No Hilo team had won a Bronco Division title since 1993.
Congratulations to our talented home town youngsters.

Doc Morita & Sunday running group signing up for Tinker Bell

Tinker Bell Medal

Tinker Bell Half Marathon

Dr. Aaron Morita sent me the following announcement as he and a part of his Sunday running group will be participating.

“I really want to get this medal,” Doc Morita said.  “And we are encouraging our Hilo group to dress in costumes.”

The first-ever Tinker Bell Half Marathon medal, which features a pair of fairy wings, Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland park and a spinning Tinker Bell figurine.

The inaugural race weekend at Disneyland Resort is January 27-29, 2012, and will be hosted by the city of Anaheim and Disneyland. The course takes runners on a 13.1-mile trek through the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks as well as past several city of Anaheim landmarks. It’s the second women-specific runDisney race weekend, joining the Princess Half Marathon at Walt Disney World Resort.

Already the Tinker Bell Half Marathon is more than half full, so if you want one of the new medals, you better grab your sneakers, get signed up at runDisney.com and start running!
