The Big Night in Wahiawa

Got ready for the Friday Night Shindig in Wahiawa and I did not call the Handi Van. They are nice people but no use bothering too much and I bought a Handi Van Annual bus pass for $35.00 which is not bad. And it gives me a chance to do some walking and get a little exercise. I took two caps to find someone to help stencil WBDC on them. And I took my camera hoping to get someone to take pictures for this blog.

Poster time is 7:00 and I got there early but just in time to see the helpers doing their job. The table for the Kau Kau was being set up, chairs were being brought in and Leland was setting up his terrific looking disc jockey scene. Maile and Ron were setting up the decorations on the walls and it began to look like a nice shindig. They pay these people only a couple thou a month. That's Criminal.

"The animals and beasts came out for a fun night of dancing at the Wahiawa Safari dance." ~ Rodney and Carol Kohagura  - "PS, I  survived and I didn't get eaten."

Leland laying down some of the best Latin music on this island, sounds like Da Reel Teeng, terrific social dancing by the all the dancers. Some of the best Filipino Tango dancers on this Island. But there is no sense to avoid the Line Dancers. This has got to be the biggest crowd of line dancers for a small non Palladium Club. But then again, West Oahu is getting to look better all around because of the Rail Disaster.

"Wonderful dancing to the jungle theme social at the Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club."
~ Rik and John.

The microphone was in use now and then for up to date announcements, new officers, prizes etc. About 8 pm they had the ring of prayer, and then they lined up for the ono kau kau & listened to dining music for about a half hour. Then the dance music began again to the delight of the dancers. Very evident that these people enjoy moving to good music.

"What a wonderful safari night at WBDC. All the animals seem to enjoy
the free pizza and dancing to Leland's music." ~Gloria Pfister
