Volunteers sought for HIBT (July 26-Aug. 2)


The Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament is looking for volunteers to help with the running of the 55th Annual tournament.

A variety of tournament support is needed, including Kailua pier operations, HIBT retail boutique, headquarter administration, security and a whole lot more. Positions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each volunteer will receive a HIBT T-shirt and discounted parking for shift volunteers in return for their time.

“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,” HIBT Founder Peter Fithian said. “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 Monday, July 21 and through Sunday, Aug. 3, 2014.
