June 27, 2001

It has been a little while since the sound of “Ola” was ringing in our ears during the trip to Spain for the 2nd World Ukrainian Challenge.  Some of the memories have started to fade but that’s ok because it is the time to start to get ready for the sound of “Aloha” and “Mahalo”.

By the time we all get together for the 3rd World Challenge, ten years will have passed since the original USA / Australia Challenge. It will be great to re-visit the original site – Maui, Hawaii. For those of you who were there, I’m sure fond memories exist and for those who have not experienced Maui – get ready for greatness. The beauty of Maui will leave you breathless and the golf courses are spectacular – as you can witness when the pros play at the Plantation course during the Mercedes Championship. Besides golf there are various other sites to be had – pineapple fields, beaches, the mountains and the crater which if one can take the time to climb to up it has the most beautiful sunrise ever seen – this will be for the wankers who like to stay up all night. We also might get lucky and see some whales that start to come to the islands during this time. If one can stand heights, I highly recommend the helicopter ride around the island for some really fantastic sights. However you decide to use your free time, I’m sure that it will be memorable.

Depending on what kind of package we get, we are planning to play either the three Kapalua Courses – Bay, Village and Plantation or probably another PGA course – Kaanapali North where the seniors play and three other local courses. Wherever we go the courses are fantastic not only in shape but the views are fabulous – the 4th at the Bay is a twelve shot par three – not only in golf terms but camera terms. It is on an inlet – where the ocean breeze can change the hole from a 9 iron to a 4 iron and you also have to watch out for the ocean spray from the crashing waves against the rocks. The main item to remember when playing in Maui is that all putts break away from the mountain. Ah, the memories.

But back to reality because its still two years away. So now my request – please let your President or representative know as early as possible your intentions of whether you plan to attend. We really need to know the amount of players and friends that will be attending. The main reason is for the hotel or villa reservations – certain hotels do not have the space for a very large crowd either in rooms or banquet facilities. By now you should have received the registration form and letter letting you know when to register. Please comply with the request. If for whatever reason you have not received any information, then please e-mail me and I will forward the info. Remember, “You snooze, you lose”

Until then, “Aloha”

Roman “Chico” Luzniak
President UGAA
