Mahalo to All Who Came to the Big Island Meet Up

Well today a few folks who enjoy using the internet in one way or another met up at Big Island Pizza in downtown Hilo.

I snapped this pictures as I was driving by to get to the place.

Big Island Pizza is located in a building that was obviously a house at some point.

I’d like to personally thank the folks that drove over from Kona to attend this Aaron Stene and Laura Kinoshita.  You guys literally drove longer then the meet up was.

I have to say a big Mahalo for contributing the food for this meet up to Big Island Pizza.



They even hooked us up with desserts.

Cookies anyone?

Someone pointed out to me that this wasn’t a real oven when I was taking a picture of it… I kind of thought the people inside of it was a bit of a give-a-way.

I ‘d like to thank Big Island Tech Guru Larry Czerwonka for organizing this and Big Island Pizza for hosting this.

It’s looking like we are going to start meetings in the future with more of a target for what we would like to talk about as a group at our next meeting.

This was just more of face to face introduction amongst a bunch of us folks that enjoy the Internet.
