We regret to inform you that we will not be returning to Cheesecake Factory loading dock for some time. Unfortunately, due to complaints of certain indiscretion to the hosting establishment the VWs are banned for an indefinite period from future events at the Cheesecake Factory loading dock in Waikiki. When there is at least one complaint and the tourist public safety is jeopardized, an apology was insufficient or unacceptable. We could not defend the inaction of our own. Sal worked hard for years with management to secure this site for the betterment of the greater VW community. Unfortunately, it will take some time maybe years to rebuild our credibility. We have to do better and police ourselves.
Westside Ka’ahui Braddahood will NOT be hosting a Dice Run this year. Despite scheduled for May 29th on the calendar of events, there will NOT be a Dice Run.

VWs WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING IN THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY KING KAMEHAMEHA DAY CELEBRATION FLORAL PARADE * SAT. 6/11/2016Posted by Sal in Announcements, Event
We regret to inform you that unfortunately there will be no VWs participating in the 100th Anniversary King Kamehameha Day Celebration Floral Parade. A few reasons led us to this final decision — the VWs track record in parade participation in the past years has been very dismal; despite months of advertisement and promotion, there has been insufficient or disinterest in participating on June 11th; and, a lot of Volks folks are in Cali for the Classics and El Prado.
We would rather facilitate and exert our energy to another event and better serve the greater VW community. It will take a year or two for the VWs to rebuild its credibility with the King Kamehameha Parade Commission. We will need the greater VW community’s assist. We will try to facilitate and we’re hopeful that VWs will come out for the September 24th, 2016 Aloha Festival Floral Parade. If you intend to attend the Aloha Festivals Floral Parade we will be asking for the following information in August: Driver and occupants names, year, type, and color of VeeDub, and hometown.
Again, we apologize if this has caused any inconvenience.
