Poke (po-KEH) is the Hawaiian word for `slice.` The local-style pupu (appetizer) consists of marinated, fresh local fish that`s raw, seared or cooked.

Spearheaded by celebrity chef Sam Choy, the contest celebrates locally sourced seafood with competition in four divisions. Culinary fun encourages the creative use of seaweed, seeds, herbs, spices, nuts, marinades, tofu, fruit, vegetables and seasoning.

Sam Choy`s Keauhou Poke Contest is part of Keauhou Resort`s annual Kamehameha III celebration March 16-18 that commemorates the Keauhou-born king, Lani Kauikeaouli.


Howzit? I was able to rescue this domain name. Can someone find out who manages the site samchoyskeauhoupokecontest.net, and have them contact me about restoring the site?

In geek-speak, samchoyskeauhoupokecontest.net redirects to samchoyskeauhoupokecontest.org. The domain lapsed and went to auction. So when I was trying to find out how to enter the Sam Choy's Poke Contest contest in 2016 on one of the Hawaii websites, I found out about the domain name problem.

I am a fan of Sam and of Hawaii. Is the contest still on?
