An Interview by Marilyn Kali
March 3, 2017
MK: Today is Friday, March 3, 2017. We’re in the boardroom of the Outrigger Canoe Club and I’m Marilyn Kali (MK), a member of the Club’s Historical Committee. One of the Historical Committee’s projects is to do oral histories of long time members and today it’s my pleasure to be talking to Randy Shaw (RS). Good morning, Randy.
RS: Good morning.
MK: Could you tell us a little bit about yourself? When and where you were born and about your family?
RS: I was born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1948 and my mother and father were H.L. Shaw and Juanita Shaw. I lived there for about 21 years.
MK: You grew up there, went to high school?
RS: Yes, I did.
MK: Tell us a little bit about your folks.
RS: My dad played volleyball and my mom played volleyball. He coached her and on her volleyball team and he coached the team he played on. Naturally, he coached me as I got older. But my mother had a very successful career. She made All-American several times and she went to the … 1959, she was on the USA team and won a silver medal in the Pan-Am games.
MK: Wow. Who was she playing for?
RS: She played for the Dallas Y at that time and anyway, she played quite a while. She played up into her older years, too.
MK: I understand she’s the one that taught you to hit left-handed.
RS: Well, not really. My dad was semi-ambidextrous, so I guess I kind of picked that up from him. Yeah. It was from my father.
MK: After you graduated from high school, you went to college?
RS: I went to North Texas State for a couple of years and then that was right in the middle of the Vietnam War, so I joined the Air Force at that time.
MK: Did you see duty in Vietnam or?
RS: No, I did not. I came over here, as a matter of fact. Lucky. It was very lucky for me to come to Hawaii.
MK: You were stationed at Hickam?
RS: I was stationed at Hickam, yeah.
MK: How long were you here?
RS: I was here about my whole term. About three years, three years and nine months.
MK: What was your job in the Air Force?
RS: I worked in the gymnasium.
MK: Played some volleyball while you were at it?
RS: I played some volleyball. The Air Force actually recruited me for volleyball. Told me they could get me in in working in the gym at the, in the Air Force so I went in.
MK: Back in those days … That was like the early 70s, late 60s?
MK: Didn’t Hickam sponsor a couple of volleyball tournaments every year?
RS: They had a … they had a good, pretty good team. They did sponsor tournaments at Hickam and they played locally. There was a man who ran that. His name was Jake Highland and he was in the Air Force and he played in the ‘64 Olympics. He kind of was an Air Force, you know, prodigy for volleyball players.
MK: I remember Outrigger playing in some of those tournaments.
RS: Yeah. I played against the Outrigger almost every tournament and it’s how I got to know the players.
MK: You got out of the Air Force and then you went back to college.
RS: Went back to USC. Had two years eligibility. Went back to USC for two years and played there.
MK: How did your team do?
RS: We were one of the top competitive teams, but we didn’t win the NCAA championship. Kind of a disappointment, but we were right there with the top guys. UCLA and Santa Barbara and us.
MK: As I recall, they didn’t start playing volleyball at the college level until in the early 70s, so you were kind of a . .
MK: … pioneer . . .
RS: That’s correct. Yeah. They had a college division at the National’s, but that wasn’t then. In about 1970, they started, I think, NCAA volleyball. So that’s … that was good for me.
MK: You played two years?
RS: Two years.
MK: From that, it led to a position on the national team?
RS: 1971, I made the USA team and we went to the Pan-American games in Cali, Columbia and we won a silver medal there. That team also had to go to Cuba for the Zone championships and we were the first American team to go into Cuba after Castro took over. We played in the finals against Cuba. Fifteen thousand Cubans and Fidel Castro met all the players on the team and shook our hands.
MK: Wow. How did you do against the Cubans? In that atmosphere?
RS: We lost to the Cubans. Therefore, we didn’t qualify for the Olympics in that year.
MK: That was for the ‘72 Olympics.
MK: Okay. You mentioned earlier that your mother also played in the Pan-Am games?
MK: She also won a silver medal?
RS: That’s correct.
MK: What position did she play?
RS: She was an outside hitter, spiker.
MK: What were you?
RS: I was the same thing.
MK: You played the same position.
MK: Were there a lot of women’s volleyball teams back in those days when she was playing?
RS: Most of them were in California, but the Dallas YMCA had a competitive team, usually finishing in the top, top four or five.
MK: She played it for most of her adult life. . .
RS: She did. She even went to a Senior Olympics in Denmark, so she played all the way up until then.
MK: That’s amazing. When you got out of the military, you went into … you went to USC and you graduated and how did you get to Hawaii?
RS: I was here in the Air Force. I always wanted to live here no matter what. I had already fallen in love with the place, with the Outrigger. There’s no other place in the world where you can play beach volleyball and go down and watch the sunset and see the green flash. When I got through with the college, I came back here right away. Then I decided to live here.
MK: How did you join the Outrigger?
RS: Tommy Haine got me in. He initially got me in as the coach for the B team and then after SC. . . while I was at SC, I joined as an associate member. I got a regular membership.
MK: Okay. After you graduated from college and played on the national team, how did you get back to Hawaii and the Outrigger Canoe Club?
RS: I came back right away. I had joined during my junior and senior year at SC as an associate member. I came back with the intentions of living here and playing for the Outrigger.
MK: I see that you were awarded a special athletic membership in 1970.
RS: Yes, I coached the B team for a couple of years. I mean, one year I didn’t have a membership, but then … then I joined as a regular member.
MK: You played as well as coached? You played volleyball here for the Club as well as coaching the B team?
RS: I did. I did play for the Club. I played for the Club in 1973 in the national tournament and I think Dennis Berg coached that team.
MK: There’s a story that I was told about your making your first impression on Club volleyball and I believe your partner was Jon Stanley who’d been a member of the 1968 Olympic team.
MK: You guys came from the loser’s bracket and you beat Daddy Haine and Paul MacLaughlin and there was a lot of talk about you guys after that. What do you remember about that?
RS: I remember it was very … it was tough, you know. I mean, they were a very good team and they played a lot together, but they weren’t in their prime luckily for us. We had a very close match and we pulled it out. It was a good match. Good volleyball.
MK: You won your first Club doubles championship in 1972.
MK: You won it with Jon Haneberg this time.
MK: It seems … it sounds kind of strange or funny, but you won your last Club doubles championship with his son twenty-six years later in 1998.
RS: That’s correct.
MK: That’s quite a career in sand volleyball.
RS: Yeah. I played with a lot of different people. Lot of different people, but …
MK: Who were your favorite partners back in those days?
RS: I couldn’t put my name on it. I couldn’t put a name on any one favorite partner, you know, I really couldn’t. They were all fun. They were good and they were different generations, you know. One partner I had in 1972, I think it was or ‘73. ‘73 maybe. Tom Madison and I played. We won every beach tournament, open tournament out there and then Nick Nicholas flew in these two guys from the Mainland, Byron Shuman and Dodge Parker. Dodge Parker’s a member of the Outrigger. We played them in a double finals and lost the states. That was a big year and we were a good team, but both of those guys, Barnes Shuman and Dodge Parker were on the USA team with me in 1971. But Nick Nicholas sponsored them and flew them in to play us.
MK: Wow. Speaking of that, that reminds me, in 71 you said that you were playing for Hickam at that point in military tournaments and you played against Dave Shoji, another volleyball great.
RS: We played against each other in the Armed Forces tournament, which is an Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marines and we played Army in the finals and we won. After that they select an Armed Forces all-star team, which Dave and I played on. We went to the national tournament in Binghamton, New York, and finished fourth in the national tournament on the Armed Forces team.
MK: You two knew each other before you played here.
MK: Wonderful. The Club used to hold lots of tournaments. It seemed like every weekend there was a tournament up there. Some of them were four man draws. Can you tell me how that worked? What’s a four man draw mean?
RS: Originally, it started out where they just drew the names out of the hat with different players. I mean, you know, any and all players and just it was the luck of the draw, you know? They changed it now to where they categorize the players so you get somebody from the hitter, somebody from the setter, somebody from an A, somebody from a B. That’s what they do now. When we originally started it, we just selected everybody and they sold the teams and there was a lot of money at stake. It was a fun tournament though.
MK: The Daddy Haine as the only four man draw we still have.
RS: It’s graduated into the Daddy Haine tournament. That’s correct.
MK: The draws really seem to encourage the younger kids to come out now and to play with the vets. Do the vets enjoy playing with the kids?
RS: I think they do. I think that’s one of the best parts about the Outrigger is that there’s a lot of encouragement from the older players for the younger players to play even on the beach court. As you know, we have a baby court up there and the baby court has produced more All-American’s than probably any place I know. You get these young kids playing on the baby court and then they graduate to the big court. That’s one of the things I like about the sport where you can support the young players. That’s what I like about the Outrigger is that you support the young players and support their participation and their improvement. We have a lot of good experienced players that are coaching the young players here.
MK: Let’s talk a little bit about the Club’s indoor volleyball program.
MK: You were on Outrigger teams for more than four decades.
MK: That’s a really long time to be playing volleyball. You coached some of our winningest teams and you were everything from open division to the masters 50s.
MK: You guys won … what teams do you remember the most and what games do you remember the most. How many national championships?
RS: There’s one section there where we had a nucleus of players and then we added some young players where we all had turned 40 and we played in two divisions so … you can’t play them at the same time, but you can play them in the same tournament. One’s for four days and the other’s for four days. We played in the 40s and the 35s. For four years in a row, we won both divisions. That’s eight national championships in four years. That has not been done before and it will probably never be done again.
MK: That was an amazing record.
RS: It was fun. Those teams, we had very good players. There were like six coaches on the team and they were All-Americans and MVP’s and everything else, but everybody’s main concern was try to win. They weren’t worried about individual honors. It was a very fun team to play on.
MK: Looks to me like you’ve played on 12 championship teams. National championships.
MK: How do you guys continue to play for so long? You guys have lives and families and work and …
RS: I don’t know.
MK: What is it that?
RS: We just enjoy it so much, you know.
MK: You love it.
RS: Yeah. We enjoy it and so we just, we just made time and it may have interfered with some of our private lives, but I don’t know. We’ve enjoyed it and I don’t have any regrets about it at all.
MK: Because you have the same teammates for pretty much the entire … the same core group of guys that played for all these years.
RS: Long time. Long time. Yeah. Here we could … you make a lot of good friends, you know, when you do that.
MK: Yeah. it’s just amazing that, you know, that so many people just continued to play.
MK: There’s one person who kind of stands in my mind as the core of our volleyball program and that’s Tommy Haine.
MK: You’ve played with him. You’ve played against him. Tell me about him.
RS: Tommy Haine is a big key in the Outrigger volleyball. He just touched so many people in various generations and he was a very admirable and respected man and he was a great player, too. He got a lot of people involved in the Outrigger program and he … I don’t know if you know, but the Outrigger is, nationwide, the most famous private club in volleyball. It is known from all over the country and he was representative of that and he helped a bunch of us get in there and we all try to carry on his legacy.
MK: I think the thing about Daddy was that he liked to win and I know people used to want to play against him or play with him, but they were scared to death they’d make a mistake. He’d call them on it. What kind of a teammate was he?
RS: Oh. He was a great teammate. Yeah. He wanted to win, you know, and that’s a good part about him. He was always playing hard and playing to win, but he was also a gentleman on the court, you know. If he’d net, he’d call it. He just played like a gentleman. He wanted to win, but he didn’t let … you know, didn’t try to cheat anybody in the process. He was a fun man to play with and around.
MK: Over the years, I’ve noticed that the volleyball teams had different coaches every year and it seems like you guys just rotated coaches. How did you decide who was going to coach each year and which team?
RS: At different times, different people were coaching. Most of the time you want a coach that’s not playing, you know, but when that one team that we had that had all the good players on it, they were all coaches. I was kind of like the mediator, you know, to keep everybody agreeing on how we should play, you know. We had meetings and guys talked about how we should play this team and then everybody agreed and then we went and went through it, you know. Those particular teams were interesting because of the way they had to be run. When you get six coaches on the court, it could be a problem. But it wasn’t. It wasn’t, you know. We had other guys, you know. Dave (Shoji) was coaching some teams. He’s always been into coaching. Naturally he coached the Wahines (University of Hawaii women’s team), but he coached some of our open teams. Dennis Berg was his coach at Santa Barbara. He coached some of our teams. Just kind of evolved, you know. Different guys coaching.
MK: You just all worked together.
MK: Lots of egos involved?
RS: Always, but they were all manageable. All manageable.
MK: Because you all wanted to play and you all wanted to win.
RS: Correct. We had something in common.
MK: There were a few years in the 1980s when you had a celebrity in your midst. What was it like having Magnum P.I., Tom Selleck, as a member of your team?
RS: Tom, interestingly, Tom is six foot four and he’s athletic and he was good, very good at the net. Hitting and blocking anything. Back court skills were not top but that’s okay, because we had guys who could do that. Whenever he played with us, they put us on the main court all the time, because we had the biggest crowds wherever we went. We all enjoyed that, you know, as part of our thing. He was fun to play with. Fun to be with. Like I said, we were the main attraction.
MK: Did he come to practices and …
RS: Yeah. He practiced some. He practiced with us.
MK: He was a full-fledged team member.
RS: Yes, he was.
MK: Was he at SC the same time you were?
RS: No, he wasn’t.
MK: He was before or after?
MK: He was before you.
MK: That’s interesting. You won a couple … you won a national championship when he was on the team, did you not?
RS: Yes, we did. We did. I think that was in Seattle.
MK: I understand there were a couple of … you played some celebrity games with him as well. Did Wilt Chamberlain when he had his …
RS: Yeah. I don’t think Tom played in them, but we played … we put an all-star team together, which was made up of Outrigger guys and we played against the … Wilt had an all-star team and we played against them when they came over here.
MK: Did you play against your Japanese team as well in another all-star game?
RS: I don’t think we did. No, I don’t recall playing against a Japanese team.
MK: Just lots of volleyball.
MK: Did you ever try any other sports while you were here? Did you paddle or anything?
RS: I paddled one year. It was okay. It was good. It was great. It was fun. Camaraderie was good, but I don’t know … those early morning practices and then the second year, I didn’t get into it.
MK: Volleyball was your sport.
RS: Yeah, that’s where I … that’s where I stayed.
MK: What’s … Is there a difference between playing indoor volleyball and sand volleyball?
RS: Yes. There is. The indoor game. Lot of people more specialized. You have to be an all around player to play on the beach. You have to be able to pass, set, and hit. Sometimes, you get big middle blockers that can’t set. Sometimes you get setters that can’t hit. But there’s also exceptions to what I just said, but yeah. It’s a lot more specialized indoor than being in the beach.
MK: The Outrigger doesn’t have a practice court for indoor volleyball. Where did you guys used to practice?
RS: We practiced at the HSG (Hawaii School for Girls). All the time I played. We practiced up there. They rented the gym and we practiced up there.
MK: The season ran from when to when?
RS: It usually ran from January to May.
MK: Then you went to the nationals in the end of May or June?
RS: It was played at the beginning of May. Usually. Around the fifth or so. They may have changed that now, but that’s where it was.
MK: You were involved in the Club’s Volleyball Committee for a number of years as the chair or just a member.
MK: What’s the role of the Volleyball Committee?
RS: They try to support the different teams. Again, that’s where I think we need … we can support the younger players. I believe in supporting the younger players first. Now they supported us as masters, but we had a chance to win and make … be famous for the Club, but basically, we’re trying to put together young teams, you know, from 14, 16, 18 year old teams. It’s not easy to do in a private club because you don’t always have enough guys in that age. The Volleyball Committee, we had to allocate funds for that. We tried to take care of the young guys and we did some fund raising too in order to do it.
MK: To develop coaches for the teams?
RS: Yep. With the number of players that we had, I mean, it goes way back to Haine, Sorrell, those guys all started coaching in …
MK: Randy, I’ve seen you officiating at UH games. How did you get into that?
RS: In the late 70s, Dave Shoji came to a few of us here at the Outrigger and he wanted to get players involved in officiating. He thought it would be better to have players officiating. I started reffing in like late ‘78 or ‘79 and reffed for about 20 years until ‘99. Couple of other Outrigger members, Ralph Smith and Jon Zabriskie also started out reffing.
MK: Bet you saw some great games.
RS: I saw … I refereed the match between, I remember this one specifically, UH and UOP (University of Pacific) were number one and number two in the country and they played in Klum Gym and they went five games and it was a deuce game and I was just praying that I got out of the gym alive.
MK: Who won?
RS: UH won.
MK: UH won. That’s what matters. Did you do the men’s volleyball games as well?
RS: Because I was doing the women’s, they came, they wanted me to do the men’s too. I did do the men’s also for a while for a period of time.
MK: You’ve had … spent a lot of time on volleyball courts. What kind of business were you in or career did you have?
RS: My last 10 years I was at Punahou School. I was in management. assistant director of physical plant, in charge of like grounds, security, and custodial. That type of thing. Prior to that I was in construction. Various positions. Cabinet making. That was also like a job supervisor. First 10 years I was in banking. My friend, Tommy Haine there, got me into banking for the first 10 years when I first came back.
MK: That wasn’t your thing?
RS: No, I got out of that one. It wasn’t quite what I wanted to … but that’s 30 years besides military.
MK: Yeah. That’s a long career. You had quite a volleyball career at the Club. You’ve won 12 national championships with the indoor team. You won All-American honors 20 times. You were Club doubles champions seven times. You won the Duke Kahanamoku championships a couple of times as well as Kane Wahine. For all you’ve done, the Club awarded you the Winged “O” in 2010. First, congratulations.
RS: Thank you.
MK: Were you surprised?
RS: Oh, yes. I was surprised. I considered it a very big honor to be a Winged “O”. When I got here, you know, the guys at the top were Duke Kahanamoku, Tommy Haine, you know. Ron Sorrell. I mean, these were guys at the top of that thing and you just never think you’re going to be quite in their category when you get an award like that, you know, so I considered it a great honor. I cherish it, really. I do.
MK: I was very happy to see Dave Shoji get elected to the Winged “O” this year.
MK: That was a wonderful addition to that.
RS: That is a good addition. You know what, people might think that he got it because of his UH coaching, but it’s not why he got it. He did so much for the Club. He coached, he played, you know, he paddled, he played mountain ball, he was a good baseball player. He was well, well-rounded. Like I said, he paddled for a few years too. He did a lot of things for the Club. Representing the Cub.
MK: He coached even after … besides playing, he coached the kids after all of that.
RS: Yep. He contributed to the kids. That’s, that’s huge. You coaching the kids, you know. He’s done a lot of stuff for the Club so it wasn’t just his UH. He’d get plenty of recognition for that though.
MK: Right. This is … Because Winged “O” is based on what you do for Outrigger.
MK: Outrigger has produced a number of top volleyball players over the years and they go on to college and then some into the pros. What do you think some of the best volleyball players are that the Club has produced?
RS: It depends on whether you talk about indoors or …
MK: Let’s talk about indoors first.
RS: Clay Stanley, Jon Stanley’s son, won two Olympic gold medals and he was the MVP of the China Olympics. That is a tremendous accomplishment right there. That’s probably the highest anybody has gotten. His father, Jon Stanley, was one of the top players. He’s in the Hall of Fame and he was in the ‘68 Olympics. Indoor-wise, but there’s a lot of other guys that, you know, that played on national teams.
MK: Clay didn’t play in high school. He played here. He played on some of our teams here.
RS: Right. He played only one year at UH.
MK: Yeah. He was an amazing, amazing player.
RS: Think about that. Of course, he’s six nine, so that helps a lot. But he’s a tremendous … He’s really a nice kid and he’s a tremendous volleyball … was a tremendous volleyball player. He’s getting in his late 30s now, but what he accomplished probably doesn’t want to go on with it.
MK: Anybody else that you … that comes to mind?
RS: Let’s see. Tommy, he was on that ‘68 Olympic team. He was … he was good, too. I don’t know, there’s other guys that played but not too many made the, made the …
MK: Any girls that come to mind?
RS: The only girls would be some of them that played beach ball, but not too many.
MK: How about Lindsey Berg?
RS: I’m sorry. You’re right. Lindsey Berg has done really well. She was Dennis Berg’s daughter. She is very competitive girl. Hard working. She was in like three Olympics, I think.
MK: Same as Clay.
RS: She just didn’t quite get the … she’s in the finals twice. They’re knocking on the door. Just goes to show you. Yeah. She’s a … I forgot about her. She’s a great player. She was a great player.
MK: What about for beach volleyball?
RS: Beach volleyball is a lot of different guy. I would like to mention two guys. They’re younger than me. It’s Jon Andersen and Jay Anderson. They’re not related, but they played beach volleyball after me and I played against them some. They played in some open tournaments here and guys from the Mainland, top rated beach players from California, came over and they beat those guys. They are … to me, they’re like … they were pretty … They were the best players, beach players, that the Outrigger had … had ever produced. I thought.
MK: Jon played on some of the national indoor teams.
RS: Jon was on our masters teams and helped us win there too. He’s a good, but he’s a six foot six guy and brought all skills, all the skills and he played indoor and beach and he’s tremendous influence on our Outrigger volleyball team.
MK: We haven’t entered any teams in the nationals, adult teams, for the last few years. Is volleyball dying at the Outrigger?
RS: It’s not the same anymore. I don’t know exactly why. Maybe we were just lucky that we were in that one era there where we had a bunch of players, but we’re still producing some guys going to college, but we’re not getting the … the whole volleyball nationwide and worldwide is different. Some of our best players are playing professionally. They won’t be back here playing … representing the Outrigger in the Nationals because they’re playing in a foreign country making money. The sport’s changed in that respect. Makes it kind of hard for us to put in a … but we can still support our young kids and our young kids have done really well in it. We’ve got some national championships there and some people if it’s high in the tournaments, but it’s … I mean, you can say it’s dying, but it’s just a whole different scenario.
MK: Where do you think it’s going to go?
RS: I don’t see it going any … I don’t think it’s going to be changing because of all, everything, you know. It’s … we’re going to get a few here and there and that’s about it. We’re not going to have a whole lot of … we just have to probably concentrate on our young kids.
MK: I heard Dave Shoji talking to Ron Sorrell the other day and they were saying … Dave was saying, “Well, how can we get these kids back from the club, volleyball clubs that they’re playing and bring them back to Outrigger and have Outrigger teams again?” I guess that’s something they’re thinking about.
RS: That’d be good. You might have to get some … some of them you might have to get into the Club then. You might have to have them joined.
MK: How do you feel about special athletic memberships for sports?
RS: I think it’s … it’s a case by case basis. You got to look at it. I don’t think it … I mean, they do it for paddling, too, and the situation can determine whether you should do it or not. Then the person, also. If you look at somebody that would represent the Club well and that would stand a good chance of being with the Club in the future, then those have to be taken … things have to be taken into consideration, you know. But just to throw out a special athletic just, just to do it. I don’t agree with that. But there are situations where it definitely makes a difference.
MK: Sometimes you … you only have six or seven players and if you could get one more, you’d have a team that you could compete with.
RS: That would, that would, that would just say … then I would say in that instance, you’d do it.
MK: Yeah. That’s what … that’s when it makes sense.
RS: Yeah. It does. It does. That’s the way you do it.
MK: Is there anything else where you think we can do to revive it and get the program going again?
RS: I don’t know. Like to see more beach tournaments up there, but, you know, the problem with the beach is that whenever I played a lot of beach, it wasn’t a regatta every weekend during the summer. Now there’s a regatta every weekend so that interferes with beach tournaments, I think.
MK: Especially if you have a two-day tournament. If it’s one day, then …
RS: Possibly, yeah.
MK: Yeah. It would work.
RS: You could do it in one day. Saturday and do the regatta Sunday.
RS: You could do that, but that … those are conflicting somewhat. I mean, I know they can’t … paddling’s got huge. Paddling’s a big sport, so you got to take care of that too, but, yeah. I don’t know. That would be something they’d have to take a look at in order to do it.
MK: Randy, thank you so much for talking with us today. Anything else that you’d like to add or anything that we forgot to bring up?
RS: Can’t think of anything right now. I just want to express my appreciation to the Outrigger for its support and for its … opportunities it’s given me. I want to thank you for this interview.
MK: Thank you, Randy, very much.
