Kevin Hayashi is the defending champion.

Entry forms have been sent to all golf courses in the state. The entry fee is $225, and the entry deadlines are Oct. 9 for exempt players and Oct. 16 for non-exempt players.

For more information, call the Aloha Section PGA office, 593-2230.

Oahu-Kauai solo paddle

Tom Stone of Honolulu will try to set a paddleboard distance record by paddling from Oahu to Kauai this weekend.

Stone, 49, will leave from Waimea Bay on the North Shore at 2 p.m. tomorrow, and he expects the paddle to last 24-30 hours.

He tried the crossing two years ago but had to pull out 19 miles short of Kauai because of jellyfish stings. This time, he'll wear a 1-millimeter wetsuit for protection.

Hunters, anglers celebrate

National Hunting and Fishing Day will be celebrated from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Koko Head Shooting Complex, 8102 Kalanianaole Highway.

The public is encouraged to attend and donations of canned goods to the Hawaii Food Bank can be exchanged for coupons which can be used for shooting, fishing and archery activities. For more information, call 587-0200.
