Dinner with Jack: Friday Feb 17 we all go out to dinner with Jack at a nearby restaurant. Usually a spot upcountry. Spouses welcome!

Lunch at Grandma’s: We’ll pick a day to take a 5 minute walk down the street to a local spot called Grandma’s Coffee House café. (Grandma started her business is 1918). Excellent food and beverage here.

Parade: The morning of Saturday Feb 18 all workshop participants are invited to march with Jack Lee and the Isle of Maui Pipe Band in the annual Parade of Whales to kick off Whale Day in Kihei. This is one of Maui’s more popular events and is well attended.

* To march in parade you must be proficient enough in your bagpiping and marching to do so, and know at least one or two of our band’s march sets. You must also bring your own kilt and gear.

Ceilidh: The evening of Sat Feb 18 get ready for the highly anticipated Ceilidh with Jack at a band member’s lovely home in Kula! This is the occasion to showcase your talents on smallpipes or any other instrument you wish to bring. This is also the occasion to enjoy choice Scotch and local brews!

* Invitation only.

Polar Bear Plunge: This tradition was started by the infamous Mr. John Visentin of B.C., Canada. After our last class on Sunday we’ll meet at one of Kihei’s fine beaches to pipe the sun down. Then toss some “icebergs” (ice cubes) into the water just before diving in the ocean. Now that’s a comfy “polar bear plunge” – because this is Maui and why not? Speaking from experience, this is hands down the best way to end any bagpipe workshop!
