Huggo’s Hosts the Tournament of the Summer Season!

Water fights erupt during the 2012 Wahine Tournament's decorated boat parade!

The 18th Annual Huggo’s Wahine Tournament takes place this Saturday, July 27, 2013. This year’s theme, “Gods and Goddesses”, celebrates the golden age of the Roman Empire when Gods and Goddesses mingled with Emperors and Empresses and even a few gladiators and centurions no doubt!

This fun-filled fishing tournament, with prizes for the best decorated boat and best costumed team, benefits Family Support Hawaii (FSH), formally Family Support Services of West Hawaii.

“We’re excited to be hosting our annual Wahine Tournament,” says 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.”

In addition to the prizes for best decorated boat and best costumed team, the 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.

The tournament kicks off with a registration party and briefing at Huggo’s On the Rocks at 6 pm.  Awards will be announced at a special awards presentation Sunday evening, July 28 at On the Rocks.
