    We can have a gym but not an event down here. Sad when your last event didn’t even clear 5k at the gate.

  3. Pat mulligan says:

    Just scrap had an event on Maui 2 weeks ago which sold out. King of the cage is having an large event on Oahu July 14th. UIC is holding another event on Maui July 28th and just scrap sometime end of year will hold another one. So plenty going on and all events this year have sold out.
