    Folk,<br>
    <br>
    I do not have a chapter backing me and this looks like it's becoming
    an unfair burden on staff, so I'm dropping this effort sadly.<br>
    <br>
    I did walk the grounds at the Kauai Marriott and am willing to be
    boots on the ground if there is a renewed interest in a Hawaii OWASP
    conference.<br>
    <br>
    Aloha,<br>

          fly to Hawaii (well, Honolulu, anyways) from Australia. I'd

              al...<br>
              <br>
              * Hawaii has a very small tech community scattered across
              several islands<br>
              * Regional Hawaii tech conference are tough since our tech
              community is so small<br>
              * The OWASP Chapter is defunct in Hawaii<br>
              <br>
              I still want to do something. Perhaps just focus on a
              small conference on Kauai next year? Or propose something
              bigger?<br>
              <br>
              I am extremely flexible here. I have been asked about a
              Hawaii OWASP conference on many occasions and I have time
              to put in serious effort to make it happen.<br>
              <br>
              I think it will be easy to get good speakers, frankly.
              Shakacon has attracted a large number of amazing speakers
              - it's one of the more competitive conferences on the
              security circuit. <br>
              <br>
              What is the best path for the first run? 1-day no
              training? 2-day? 2-day + 1-day of training? I'd be
              grateful for more suggestions....<br>
              <br>
              Another possibility is to tag onto the end of Shakacon <a
                moz-do-not-send="true" href="http://shakacon.org/"
                target="_blank"><a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://shakacon.org/">http://shakacon.org/</a></a>. We would do
              our own thing of course - but just time a OWASP conference
              to happen right before or after Shakacon to leverage the
              community that will already be in town.<br>
              <br>
              Just thinking out loud. I'm eager for suggestions.<br>
              <br>
              Anyhow - I'll reactive the Hawaii chapter list and move a
              more serious conversation there, soon.<span class=""><br>
