Sometimes an attempt to change a time-honored tradition is a mistake, and I obviously made one. Never let it be said your voices have not been heard. You spoke up via the SASS Wire, telephone calls, and emails, and said you wanted a Best Dressed Costume Contest at this year’s END of TRAIL. Therefore, you shall have one!


The Best Dressed Costume Contest will be held Friday night, June 26th and a promenade of contestants and awards will be presented that evening during a break in the Friday night festivities. Judging will take place at an earlier time that evening, yet to be determined.

Best Dressed categories will be Best Dressed Male and Female, 1st to 3rd place, Best B-Western/Silver Screen Male and Female, 1st to 3rd place, and Best Military, 1st to 3rd place. B-Western/Silver Screen and Military costumes will not be judged as separate categories during the day. They now are part of the evening Best Dressed event. You can still dress B-Western and Military during the day, but those outfits will be judged under the Shooting Costumes category. You should enter a different B-Western/Silver Screen outfit or Military uniform for the evening costume event.

Also, the Carolina Belles—Fannie Kikinshoot, Catawba Kate, and Tornado Alli—have sashayed up to the bar (in their Victorian attire, of course) and volunteered to handle all the details of organizing and running the Best Dressed Contest. I appreciate so very much their help.

And now, the proverbial “ball is in the court” of all those who cried out for the Best Dressed Costume Contest. Don’t stand on the sidelines dressed to the nines in your great outfits. Become a contestant!
