 Robin's Best Shirt Award, December 7, 2012

The sixth full year of Robin's Best Shirt Award event comes to a close this month, and the weather has co-operated to ensure that another fantabulous turn-out was present at the Lol Ha Beach Bar.  There was an excellent turn-out of best shirt contestants and supporters, and once again the judges had a very difficult time making a decision.
