Beaver Queen Pageant!
The 6th Annual BQP, Wild Wild Wetlands, happens this Saturday at the Duke Park Meadow, Acadia and Knox Streets. Festivities get under way at 4:00 pm, and at 4:30 or so there will be special event that you won't want to miss.
Late Breaking News: Wool E. Bull is also going to be making an appearance at the BQP. The mainstream is getting wider, it would seem.
A couple of folks asked about my "official blogger" status, so here's the deal. This year, I'm going to be a judge, and with all the traveling i did last month and a couple of other things going on, it didn't seem feasible to blog the pageant.
The official pageant blog is located here, and everything you need to know about the pageant, its history, where to buy BQP swag, etc. is there.
As it has for the past several years, the BQP raises funds for the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association, and awareness of Durham's streams, rivers, and wetlands.
Something new this year is that we're taking donations via PayPal. You can cast ballots for your favorite contestant, buy a judge, or be a sponsor of the Pageant here. Of course, i'd be honored beyond belief if you choose to be the buyer of my judgeship, and last i checked i was the most corrupt of the 7 judges, but regardless, be sure to mention Jack Johnson's "All at Once Foundation" in the message portion of your donation. The Foundation will match the first $2500 we receive that includes this note, so let's make sure that all of that money gets donated to ECWA.
See you on Saturday, and Go, Speed Beaver, Go!
