 Robin's Best Shirt Award, January 3, 2014

This month kicks off the 8th year of the Robin's Best Shirt Award, and it brought out a plethora of fantabulous entries, even though the word was out that the leading winner, Russ Motley, was going to make it a runaway with a special hand-painted shirt that was commissioned from Richard Mazzola.  It is high season, and a lot of snow birds had arrived, making the field much more competitive than usual.  The judges had a difficult time working their way through the throng to get a good view and sense of the colorful entries.
