Contests subject to change depending upon availability of participants and volunteers

 

BEST BASKET

Some guys are fortunate to have been endowed generously below the waistline.  We love to observe and admire those so gifted.  Others of us, well, not so much.  However, who's to say that the BIGGEST is the BEST???  It's always rumored that the best things come in small packages..... so we have this little (obviously, no pun intended) contest for all you gents who wish to step forward and show off your wares!  The audience makes the decision as to who will win the Medals awarded in the Best Basket Contest.  If there is ever an appropriate time to gawk, this is it!!

BEST BUNS

For every front side, there has to be a backside!  We love to see all of these men getting up there to show us their ASSets!  Some are the perfect "bubble butt", others are a nice firm ledge that you feel you can set your glass on!  The audience decides the winner.  Medals are awarded.  

BODY PAINTING

Here's your chance to be Picasso, Rembrandt, Degas or the soup can guy.  If you'd rather BE painted, no problem, we'll help match up artist (painter) with canvas (paintee) so that everyone has fun. We have numerous templates for ideas or just go at it with your own expression of a beautiful, risqué or hilarious piece of artwork.  Don't want to do either, then just observe, cheer on and vote for your favorite pair.  It's just as much fun afterwards  You may be able to help wash off the paint from all those hard to reach areas.  Medals are awarded to the Painter and the Canvas.

MR. BARE BEAR

Everyone has a different opinion of what a Bare Bear is!  Some think it's the hairiest man, some think it's the largest man, others think it's the combination of both!  Our Mr. Bare Bear contest is all about your own attitude.  Line up with your competitors and convince the audience that you are Mr. Bare Bear!  Remember, it's ALL for fun!  Medals are awarded to the winner(s).

MR. IMEN
