Did Rainbow Warrior fans enjoy the weekend?
Uh ... what?
Yep, with the opener a week away, the football calendar has been re-set. That means today is considered to be a Warrior Monday, which means meetings and a weight-lifting session in the morning, and more meetings and conditioning drills this afternoon.
The usual Tuesday practice will be held tomorrow and Saturday. The usual Wednesday practice will be held Sunday and Monday. There will be a light practice on Tuesday and a walk-through on Wednesday. Please adjust your tailgates for the game next Thursday.

Last night's telethon raised $206,000 in pledges, with all of the money going to pay for the Rainbow Warriors' training table. It exceeded the goal of $150,000 in pledges.
What was good was that Na Koa announced how the money would be used specifically. It's easier to attract donors when they know how the money will be spent rather the pledges going into a general fund.
