 Robin's Best Shirt Award, January 1, 2010

Happy New Year

The first Robin's Best Shirt Award of 2010 did not waste any time at all, as it kicked Akumal's social scene off right on January 1, New Year's Day. One would have thought that this would have been a watered-down affair, considering all the celebrating that went on the night before, or on the other hand, one could have thought that everyone would be there to be the first winner of the new decade. 

Whatever the case, the Lol Ha Beach Bar was packed, and maybe the three TVs with the Rose Bowl had something to do with that, or maybe it was the new program whereby the Blues & Jazz Band now plays in the Beach Bar on Friday nights, vs in the restaurant.  Whatever, it was another exciting event.

And, the two "Local Species" signs have been refurbished and are once again hanging over the refurbished 'locals' bar.

Bud Blatner was sporting a real spiffy shirt to launch his attempt for the 1st award in 2010.

But, he was getting serious competition form Loquito, who is still hanging in there, albeit with the same shirt as in December.

This is the first time the entire Best Shirt Award contingent was in a single photo.

Joe was doing all she could to influence the judge to swing her vote to Michael.

MIchael just returned from a trip down south, and he definitely came prepared to take home the trophy.

Steve Clouther was takng an obtuse approach with this unique designed shirt from Guatemala.

This shirt received many "Best Shirt" nods from Robin.

Mary elected to be a Judging Committee of one this evening, due to the mixture of the attendees.

Alice Blatner was more interested in showing off her new hair-do than gathering any support for Bud.

"And the first winner of 2010 is Steve Clouther, the first 4 time winner of Robin's Best Shirt Award."

"This goes on the mantle over the fireplace with the three other Best Shirt Awards."

SteveC shares the award with a picture of Robin as he shows off the trophy and new Cuba Libre shirt.

Forget that Seine river cruise through Paris. Get to Akumal for the next Best Shirt Award on February 5.
