Well how about that parade last night?? What a great turnout! Very fun afterparty too! |
Before I announce the winners, I want to thank a few people. First, John Thomas for the venue - such a great location, and Skip Swackhamer and Jack for the music. I closed the place down dancing!
The majority of the food was provided by our great local eating establishments. Thank you Greg at Bayou Bistro for the pizzas, Joy at Baja Cantina for the chips, queso and salsa, Robert at Louis for the hushpuppies, and Dale at Dockside Smokehouse for the chopped briskets sandwiches and potato salad! The food was yummy!
Okay and now for the results, you've all been waiting for! It was a very close competition between first and second - only one point difference!
1st place: Jimmy Johnson, Boat #16 - Rudolph
2nd place: Pat Hayes, Boat #1 - Santa and the polar bear
3rd place: Scott Rein, Boat #29 -Reindeer pulling Santa sleigh
Tiny Tim: Paul Adams & Vince Martino, Boat #7, green light with flag.
Thank you to all our judges - we had one(mostly from the Salt Water Garden Club) on each of the ten canals
Congratulations everyone and see you next year!
