Bathing Beauty Competition, February 2nd
To kick-off our college week festivities, The Bathing Beauty competition will be held on Feb 2! Participants will flaunt their stuff in a bathing suit as they cruise the Play Yard Slope from top to bottom. Males and females are encouraged to wear their 1-pieces or bikinis, but if they shed all their layers, they will be disqualified (this is a family resort). Costumes will be judged based on outrageousness and originality combined for a total score that will determine the winner.
Registration will be held the day of the event from 9 a.m. to noon and the event will start at 12:30 p.m. A $15 registration fee is required and includes a lift ticket. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded. So get creative and design your costume!
