 Robin's Best Shirt Award, April 2, 2010

 Even though it was Good Friday, the crowd arrived early and often at the Lol Ha Beach Bar for the April edition of the Robin's Best Shirt Award contest, and it might have been the Easter Parade with all the colorful and innovative shirts there.  While last month was the scene of a very, very tightly contested event,  Mary and her two additional judges felt that it was Derby Day, and they had a run-away winner.  The winner was an obvious unanimous choice.

Unfortunately, the selection was marred by a minor protest on the winning entry, but that also was unanimously over-ruled by Mary.
