Robin's Best Shirt Award, March 4, 2011

 We have turned the corner and are heading towards Spring, and Robin's Best Shirt Award was a great way to kick-start the season. The contestants and observers were three deep at the bar, and there were some spectacular entries this month. 

As such, this was a very tightly contested event, and Mary enlisted the support of two additional judges to help her wade through the crowd and make a selection.  The winner was an obvious unanimous choice.
