We had a last minute prize donated from Bad Apple Brewing Company so

we called it the ‘Bad Apple Award’

A gift basket of merch! There was no particular criteria for the award, which was won by Layne Van Loo for ‘Crossroads’, but judge David Bannister assured him that a ‘Bad Apple Award’ was no reflection on his character. Layne’s wife, fellow artist Elaine, thinks it funny that he can now list ‘Bad Apple’ on his resume!

Thanks to the following local businesses for providing food and ‘goodie bag’ contents!
