Robin's Best Shirt Award, December 2, 2011

It was the last Robin's Best Shirt Award event of 2011.  The contestants brought out their finest "best" shirts in an attempt to take home the very coveted trophy. This made for a very tough decision by the illustrious panel of judges, who did not have to publicize their votes for the competitive contestants.  Fortunately, their decision was well accepted by the milling throng, and no Occupy Akumal protest resulted.

January 2012 kicks off the 6th year for this event, and with all the snow birds around, it is sure to be another fiercely competitive event.  Come early to ensure you are recognized and accounted for by Mary and her co-judges.
