Kokua Hanalei Created!

The Hanalei Initiative has developed this online space as a tool for our North Shore communities to support each other economically.  The huge economic impacts of the COVID 19 virus on our Kauai’s ohana and how long it will last is uncertain. But what we do know is we are a very resilient community who always come together when faced with a challenge.  While the larger economic picture may look grim, we can put our focus in a community economic support system. Do you have projects you have been wanting to have done but keep putting it off? Can you offer a side job? Do you have a delivery service, can do a dump run or have produce to sell.  Post it here and keep the creative juices going for community based economic activity.

A knockout tournament or elimination tournament is divided into successive rounds; each competitor plays in at least one fixture per round. The top-ranked competitors in each fixture progress to the next round. As rounds progress, the number of competitors and fixtures decreases. The final round, usually known as the final or cup final, consists of just one fixture; the winner of which is the overall champion.

In a single-elimination tournament, only the top-ranked competitors in a fixture progress; in 2-competitor games, only the winner progresses. All other competitors are eliminated. This ensures a winner is decided with the minimum number of fixtures. However, most competitors will be eliminated after relatively few matches; a single bad or unlucky performance can nullify many preceding excellent ones.

A double-elimination tournament may be used in 2-competitor games to allow each competitor a single loss without being eliminated from the tournament. All losers from the main bracket enter a losers’ bracket, the winner of which plays off against the main bracket’s winner.

The marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards), usually run as a road race. The event was instituted in commemoration of the fabled run of the Greek soldier Pheidippides, a messenger from the Battle of Marathon to Athens.

The marathon was one of the original modern Olympic events in 1896, though the distance did not become standardized until 1921. More than 500 marathons are held throughout the world each year, with the vast majority of competitors being recreational athletes as larger marathons can have tens of thousands of participants.
