When the Outrigger Canoe Club moved to its Diamond Head Clubsite in January 1964, this dedication plaque was hung at the front entrance to the Club. It was written by John Cline Mann who chaired first the Planning and then the Building Committee for the Club. Each time we enter, we are reminded of his wish for the Club. Today we consider the words as the official mission statement of our Club.
The Outrigger Canoe Club
Let this be a place
where man may commune with sun and sand and sea,
where good fellowship and Aloha prevail, and
where the sports of Old Hawaii shall always have a home.
