 Robin's Best Shirt Award, October 2, 2009

The Robin's Best Shirt Award for October drew a very good crowd for October, and it was another excellent event.  The judges had a relatively easy time with their decision, but on the cover, you might wonder "Why?".

Mary Henderson was off in San Miguel de Allende buying "San Miguel" shoes, and The Akumalian Staff was working out of the remote office in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, so the roles of Judging, reporting, and photographing were taken on by Bob & Sherwood Anders, who did a spectacular job on all accounts.

Thanks for the good collection of photographs.
