54th HIBT seeks volunteers
The Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament is looking for over 50 volunteers to help with the running of the 54th annual tournament. A variety of tournament support is needed, including Kailua pier operations, HIBT retail store, administration and a whole lot more. Each volunteer will receive a HIBT T-shirt and discounted parking for shift volunteers in return for their time and positions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
“We are excited to meet new volunteers and welcome back those who help us each summer. Volunteers play an important role in the HIBT and help us provide great service to the anglers, crews and visitors that come from around the world to this prestigious fishing tournament,” said HIBT Founder Peter Fithian. “Each year we all work hard, have a good time, at the end of the five days of tournament fishing, bid a fond aloha to all those who travel here to Kona to fish these famous waters.”
HIBT event headquarters, retail and tournament control will once again be anchored at Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel, located adjacent to Kailua Pier. Tournament volunteers are needed starting Wednesday, July 21 and through Tuesday, August 13, 2013.
To volunteer, please call Ann at (808) 836-3422 or email email@example.com.
The Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament is underwritten by the generosity of the County of Hawaii Department of Research and Development and the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
