June "Best Shirt" Award

The "Best Shirt" contest fell on the first day of June, and most of the contestants thought they were going to be a "sure thing", figuring that very few people are in town, and nobody is going to be at the Beach Bar tonight.  SURPRISE!!!!

There was a good contingent of "locals" at the Beach Bar, including a very good array of possible winners, and at one time in the decision process, Mary alluded to having co-winners.  But somehow, the judges' decision came down to one winner, and we can't tell if it's because of bribery or just plain bad taste; no sour grapes/margarita here.  Any way, a good time was had by all, and it was culminated with a well attended banquet out on the porch at the Lol Ha restaurant.
