here we have Brad "Mr Alcatel" McCain, Roger "Panthers" Goss,
chatting with Peter "The Chairman" Fithian
and Jeff "Buttons" Burton, in a fairly LOUD aloha shirt

The Chairman directs us to the grand dame of Kona, The Kona Inn
where the whole thing started some 43 years ago

she hasnt changed much over the years and is still lookin good,
situated here on Kailua Bay, tho HIBT HQ is now at the King Kamehameha Hotel, just up the road

considering there's only 25 teams entered this year, it's still a good crowd here at The Palace

The Chairman holds what could be the single most valuable catch at the HIBT
the drink tickets - taunting Jeff, looking VERY serious here now....
