Transcript Aloha?... yes! The Aloha Bowl trip was a key way to be seen in the eyes of the world. Though it was a struggle, the excitement of going to Hawaii and being on national television was irrestible. When UH accepted the offer to play football in the Aloha Bowl, the question of the band attending came up. Administration decided that the band would not attend at the expense of the university or from the Aloha Bowl Committee's leftovers. Following the bad news, some band members went to the media for help. The coverage led many Houston-based companies to offer discounts for their services. The most important company, Continental Airlines, lifted band members' hopes even higher by offering a large discount for airfare. Soon afterwards the John Moores Company granted the band a very large financial contribution. With this money and each member's own contribution, everything was set to go. "I thought that the band was going to get to go to Hawaii, even before we officially knew it," said Juan Navejar. Practice for the Aloha Bowl was with high spirits; the situation was drastically reversed. Once arriving in Hawaii, members already had plans for their 3-day stay. These included a pep rally on the beach the night before the game, a Paradise Cove luau, and most importantly — the show and support at the game. They played the fight song several times and supported the team throughout, so even when the team lost, the band felt they had given it their best. "Right after the game, I was very disappointed. I thought the team gave it the best they could, but there were just too many bad calls," said Terry Curci. The rest of the the trip was free to do whatever one wanted, but most did one of three things. They either went to Waikiki beach, took a tour of the U.S.S. Arizona memorial, or went on a action-tour of the island. At night, many went to Hard Rock Cafe-Hawaii to check out the menu or rented mopeds to travel around Waikiki. A few members even rented Mustang convertibles for a larger view of the island. What better way for the band to spend Christmas together. ► Troy Yates Rob Camper, Rob Ripley, and Dana Keller try to hide their "tickling*' sensation while handling tropical birds.
