End of year update

18 Dec End of year update

New Year’s Eve Fireworks are going to be bright this year.  This years display will begin at 9:30 on Friday, December 31, 2010.  Many local businesses donated the  $25,000 to make it happen. A bright way to see out the old and bring in the new.

Kauai Marathon 2011 has started taking applications.  I have already signed up with a large group from OFF Kauai ( Organic Functional Fitness). The marathon will be held on Sunday, September 4th, 2011.  This is a spectacular event being held for the third time.  Using Kauai’s tropical paradise as its background, it gets elite runners from all over the world.

Poipu Bay Gold Course reopens this week along with the restaurant Yum Cha located in the updated Clubhouse.  All greens have been renovated using seashore paspalum grass.

Kukuiula has finished the Plantation core which includes the clubhouse and spa.  Their 18 hole golf course is completed.  The screen fences are down and you can look in at the Clubhouse and see just how beautiful it is.  the golf course goes all the way down Lawai Road and to the edge of the Allerton Gardens.  It is a private course though prospective buyers will be allowed to play once with their broker.

Visitor stats are up 10% over last year and the forecast looks bright for continued visitor growth over the next year.

Hope this post finds you all happy and healthy and ready for the New Year.
