Mahalo for your RSVPs-it really helps with the planning! It looks like there will be about 45-50 of us attending and we have about 30 chairs available. So if anyone has one or two chairs that they could bring, it would be appreciated.
Please bring a dish to feed a crowd that uses Slow food-local, homemade, from your garden if you can, etc. Don’t worry about feeding 50 of us-there will be plenty of food! In addition to your delicious dish, please bring serving utensils and clearly mark everything with your name. And like all Slow Food Hawaii events, we also ask that you bring your own plates, napkins, flatware, glasses, cups, etc. And feel free to bring a beverage of your choice!
The road in to Pu’u O Kumau is not paved, but doable with a sedan. (I make it in with my Toyota) But carpooling is always encouraged!
I know I don’t need to ask, but we always appreciate help cleaning up at the end of the event. We are really looking forward to seeing you all there!
From Waimea: Just past mile marker 17 on Kohala Mountain Road turn left onto Puuhue Road….
From Hawi: Pass mile marker 18 on Kohala Mountain Road about 3/4 mile. Turn right on Puuhue Road….
Puuhue Rd. is near mile marker 17 on the Kohala Mountain Rd. There should be a Slow Food sign for the turn. Turn makai, and drive until the paved road ends. Go over the first cattle guard following the road down, then uphill. Stay to the right, then go downhill to the second cattle guard and stay on the gravel road. If the gates are closed, open and close them behind you. Go until you see the cluster of new buildings which is Puu O Kumau Ranch and drive to the left of the barn.
