And an update. I'll send out an email as well.
1) We are not going to do the high heel contest this year. This has been a staple of our party for many years and our contestants have always participated with enthusiasm and class. This seems to be a year of change, though, and we are going to try something new.
2) We replacing the high heel contest with a holiday bling contest. There will be a prize! Everyone is welcome to bring your best bling to match the ugly ties that the are always such a hit. Because what's an ugly tie without matching bling?
3) As noted above, Ugly Ties are still in style and will be judged! Oh, and there's a nice prize for the winner. :)
