**Crooner Update:

Excellent!  Everyone had the correct answer!  Again!  (Are you all camp alumni or something?!  Ha!)

The answer is C.  Kona at Keahou Beach (Hawai’i).

The February session is just about to start–and I have to admit, I’m a little jealous of the folks that get to be there.  I had the great fortune of attending 2 sessions of Aloha Music Camp (2007 and 2008) and I loved it.  A life-changing experience, for sure.  And some of the best friends I’ve got were made right there.  There’s something to be said for getting folks together from all over the world who share a love for Hawaiian music, hula and culture.  Sharing Aloha.  Right on!

If you’re not familiar with the camp, you can learn more by clicking HERE.

(And a giant ALOHA from the Big Apple to any of the folks at camp who might be reading this.  I’m strumming and singing with all in spirit!)

And this week’s winner, chosen randomly from all of the correct answers is… (Drum roll, please…) LAURI!  Congrats!  That makes your a Trivia Superstar!

A giant MAHALO to all of you who played along this week. Hope you’ll take the challenge next week, too!

Happy weekend, gang.

A hui hou…
