18th annual Huggo’s Wahine Tournament (July 27)


The 18th Annual Huggo’s Wahine Tournament is Saturday, July 27, 2013.

This year’s theme, Gods and Goddesses, celebrates the golden age of the Roman Empire when Gods and Goddesses mingle with Emperors and Empresses and even a few gladiators and centurions no doubt, at this fun fishing tournament with prizes for the best decorated boat and best costumed team.

Proceeds from the tournament are donated to Family Support Hawaii (FSH), formally Family Support Services of West Hawaii, which is a Hawaii Island United Way agency.

“We’re excited to be hosting our annual Wahine Tournament,” said Huggo’s owner Eric von Platen Luder. “Over the past 18 years this fun, charity-focused tournament has donated more than $130,000 to Family Support Hawaii. We’re thankful that through the community’s support of the event, FSH can make a difference in people’s lives.”

All-women anglers are competing for cash prizes which will be awarded to the teams with the biggest marlin/billfish weighing more than 300 pounds. There will also be tuna, ono, and mahi mahi categories that will receive trophies for the largest catch.

Prizes and cash will also be awarded to the best decorated boat and team costumes. Awards will be announced at a special awards presentation Sunday, July 28 at On the Rocks.
