A word about contests

It seems obligatory, among the organizers of tweed rides, to post that their particular event will have contests for the “best …”   Indeed, somebody, perhaps the London folks, first published “the list,” and those that follow, seemingly lacking in all creativity, often copy “the list” verbatim. 

If you are at all familiar with these events, you’ve no doubt seen “the list…”

Contests (and prizes for):

  • Most dapper chap
  • Snappiest lass
  • Most gallant behaviour
  • Most  stylish “steed” (for those who anthropomorphise their bikes into horses, I suppose?)

To paraphrase Mr. Letterman, our event will be an exhibition, not a competition.  Heck, even Carnaval Brasileiro, arguably the most costume-iest event in all of Austin, had done away with its costume contest decades ago.   

Well, we may have one competition of sorts.  We are in top-level negotiations with a licensed tonsorial artist (that’s “barber” to you), to hire his services as an arbiter of the “best facial hair” …  if only to give us license to forego shaving for a bit.  Confirmation to come.
