Robin's Best Shirt Award, May 7, 2010

 It was a bright, steamy and exciting evening as a wonderful crowd gathered at the Lol Ha Beach Bar to celebrate Robin's Best Shirt Award for May, and while we are heading into low season, the crowd was well behaved and colorfully attired. This made for a tough decision for the judges, but in the end, it looks like it was an The winner was an obvious unanimous choice.

A couple of obvious and serious contenders were not on hand, due to a previous engagement.  One was continously on the cell phone trying to get an update on the contestants and the odds.


The Akumalian thanks Lucy James for the photographs.
