Best Shirt Award, March 7, 2008

It was a dark and very stormy night - with thunder, lightning and a deluge of rain - as a large number of contestants gathered at the Lol-Ha Beach Bar on Friday, March 7th for the "Robin's Best Shirt Award, and an e-mail, inspired by Hillary Clinton's victories in Ohio and Texas, brought out a number of very serious female contenders.  While there was a large number of male contestants, including many previous winners, it had all the makings of another upset, and a victory by a female.
