Hula Bowl name issue resolved
Marcia Klompus, the former owner of the Hula Bowl, said a contractual tussle with the current owners of the game over its name has been resolved. "It was very amicable," Klompus said.
Klompus said she is now satisfied the name "Hula Bowl" will remain in Hawaii if Overtime Sports Pacific decides to move the college all-star game away from the islands.
She referred further questions to her attorney, Bill McCorriston. He was unavailable last night.
Overtime CEO Mark Salmans said Friday he was looking forward to resolving the issue.
"The name Hula Bowl belongs in Hawaii and our intentions are to continue playing the game here," Salmans said.
The 60th Hula Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 21 at Aloha Stadium.
