Once again this year, On the Rocks, in the heart of Kailua-Kona, is the spectacular location for the “Breakfast with Bob” broadcasts, featuring elite athletes, former champs, participating celebrities and incredible individuals from around the world who have won a spot in the prestigious Ironman World Championship held here each October.
Among those appearing so far this week is former pro-footballer and Hall of Famer Hines Ward,. Ward a former wide receiver for the Pittsburg Steelers is participating in the triathlon for the first time this year with some great coaching from multi-year women’s champ Paula Newby-Fraser.
Hines and Paula took some time away from the “stage” to strike a pose with staff members from our company, including Huggo’s president/owner, Eric von Platen Luder, General Manager Greg Peterson, General Manager Nick Roschi from our sister restaurant Lava Lava Beach Club in Waikoloa, Chef Chris Fagan from our catering company Paradise Gourmet Catering and Corporate Chef Ken Schloss – in other words just about everyone!
We’ll all be cheering you on…best of luck on Race Day, Saturday, October 12!
