This time tomorrow, IBCs will be down on the beach setting up for the 2009 Galveston Beach Revue! I can't believe it's finally here!
Important FYI: The weather on the Island is gonna be "top notch" (to quote WillThing at City Council yesterday)! And remember, just because rain is forecasted for Houston does not mean we'll have rain here on the Island. Usually, if we have any rain, it blows right in and right out! So get your sunglasses, big floppy vintage hats, & sunblock ready to go!
Here's an update: we are so excited to announce that the vintage category
is now full! We are, however, taking alternates just in case some of the lovely 2009 Bathing Beauties do not show. (knock on wood that everyone will make it)
We still have quite a few slots open in the contemporary/modern category
, so give us a call or shoot us an email to enter. To get details and to register, go to the event website
and visit the Registration Tab. We will be on the beach early tomorrow, so if you still want to register, give Adrienne
a call at 409-770-7360 to register on Saturday.
IBC's have spent this week getting last minute items taken care which included a marathon of shirt tagging. We've also been out talking to media and the community - the Culpepper's are at Fox 26 news studios this morning and as I type are waiting to go live! We stopped by City Council last night to invite the council and the entire Island out to the event. We'd also like to thank Charles Killebrew for inviting us to talk about the Bathing Beauties Contest at the Pachyderm Club yesterday.
We'd also like to thank all of our sponsors
, judges & emcees, media supporters, friends, and contestants for their support and excitement! Without your support and encouragement, we couldn't have made it this far without you. This has definitely been a labor of love for us here at IBC.
And last, but most certainly not least, I'd like to thank our official Event Coordinator, Adrienne! Dude - you are a rock star and most definitely without you, we'd still be trying to get sponsors! Thank you for taking the bull by the horns! Much love to you our fellow IBC!
