Caucus Representative Pageant
The potentially funniest thing about the upcoming Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference semi-annual meeting in Baltimore is that the Miss USA pageant will be in B-more the same weekend. While I don't think you will hear a lot of folks saying,"Whew, am I relieved! I thought I was going to have to miss one or the other!" I think MARAC-ers could have more fun with this than they seem to have to date.
It is time to discuss the Ms./Mr. MARAC State Caucus Representative Pageant. The obvious choices for folks to represent each state in the MARAC region-West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and the District of Columbia-will be our duly and newly elected caucus reps. I hope everyone voted with that in mind in the recent elections (which you just missed the deadline on, sorry).
First point up for discussion: the competition. What are the archival equivalents of the talent, swimsuit, evening gown, question and answer, and "don't trip !" portions of the evening?
Release date: By 29 March, 2005
Sometimes the simple is the way to go.
I think they should have to do something involving Masonic rites in keeping with the history of the hotel/conference center, but let's avoid physically hurting anyone and keep this a weapons-free event.
Regalia for everyone!
