    COMMENTS FROM KATHIE: In the August 28, 2007 Honolulu Star Bulletin newspaper there was an article seeking contestants for the falsetto contests on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii Island. That announcement said the contests would take place September 7 on Kauai at the Hilton Kauai Beach Hotel, September 8 on Hawaii Island at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, September 28 on Oahu at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel, and October 12 on Maui at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. It's interesting to me that the Maui contest was held after the Oahu contest because I thought the Oahu contest was considered a finals event for all of Hawaii. Hmmm... something else interesting! A September 28, 2007 Honolulu Star bulletin article says the winners of the Oahu contest get guaranteed entry into one of the three neighbor island contests. I thought it worked the other way around... outer-island winners got guaranteed entry in the Oahu finals event. To be continued...
