Flew to Las Vegas in 2007, 2009, and 2011 to purchase blocks of UH-UNLV game tickets for the Tsai-kos.  Purchased with own money and distributed to the Tsai-kos for reimbursement at cost.

Major influence in gathering Tsai-kos as a group in Las Vegas with rasu begasu.

















In 2012, Tom, a Hawaii expat residing in the San Francisco bay area, started to obtain road game tickets for Tsai-kos and the family/friends of players (past and present).

He now negotiates blocks of seats from the stadiums for most road games and purchases them with his own money.  He distributes them at cost plus a small postage and handling fee.

Addahknowjoe is responsible for "branding" the Tsai-kos, and aiding in the production of Tsai-ko items  (such as the Tsai-ko placard, tee-shirts, stickers, glassware, banner, jars, pendants, etc.)

He designed and produced the Warrior Beat Tsai-ko placard (shown at right) and distributing them at the 2007 UH-UNLV game where it was seen on national television.

Professional photographer and acquaintance of Addahknowjoe, LK produced and contributed Tsai-ko name tags since 2007.

His name tags identified the Tsai-kos who attended cattle calls, karaoke calls and road games.  They are highly sought after and still worn at events today.TSai-ko name                  tag

Retired attorney and judge, Tom Mui copyrighted the Tsai-ko trademark and designs on the behalf of Addahknowjoe and Stephen Tsai.  There was an outside attempt to usurp the Tsai-ko name at the time.

One of the first Tsai-ko Cattle Call attendees and the most extensive traveller of the Tsai-ko cruisers.

His assistance and efforts have greatly benefited the UH Athletic programs.

Mr. and Mrs. SailorBlue

In early 2007, BG suggested the Tsai-kos tailgate at Richardson Field.   Being in the military, he reserved Pavillion 6 for the entire season.  He continued to make reservations the next year, and failed to tell us there was a substantial reservation fee he covered.

Kazz (Kevin) volunteered to assist BG in coordinating the tailgates, menu, and ensuring new Tsai-kos received entry info.  He was the main contact for all visitors and Tsai-kos, new and old,  for several years.





Mr. & Mrs. SailorBlue have now taken on the chore of making reservations for a Richardson Field marina Cabana for the Tsai-ko tailgates.

James a.k.a (Jesse)James(Jesse)James

James, working with Addahknowjoe and Da Punchbowl Kid, designed and ordered black Tsai-ko t-shirts in 2008.  The Manoa Poi Company design on the back was by Da Punchbowl Kid.

James paid for the order and donated all proceeds to the UH football program.

Attending many UH football road games, he is the central figure and rallying point for all Tsai-kos and get-togethers.
