First photo: Kihei’s Jason Baker tosses a ring to Mariah Campbell Wednesday morning at Kalama Park in Kihei. The duo had a forced break in the action when one of their flying rings landed in the limbs of a tree. After trying to dislodge it with thrown slippers, Baker was forced to climb the tree to retrieve it. He said he hasn’t climbed a tree in 15 years. “Not since I was a little kid and fell out of trees,” he said.
Second photo: Campbell leaps to catch a ring tossed by Baker Wednesday morning.
