national hat day

A display of unique and ingenious head attire
  (+3, -1)

  [vote for,

To combine "voting day" Local Elections, with a hat competition:

As an incentive to wear hats, the national hat day could be in the form of a nationwide competition. Judged on voting day by the usual officials present.

To enter you must make your own headgear in a manner to reflect your occupation or hobby/interest. Entrance fee £2.00 (or $70 , not sure on that one)

The winner would receive all funds raised by the competition to spend on a "trip of life" experience. To be reported by the press at a later date.

       some would call it Royal Ascot - but there's no prize; a lot of prize fools though

       its a sort of antler thing I suppose.....

       I just thought this would encourage people to visit the local polling station. Whilst everyone in the community would be there at differing times during the day, why not incorporate a competition. Royal Ascot is really based on how much money the hat cost. This was more of a creative outlet for design and fun.

       Rods: At least part of the reason is weather protection. Later, it turned into a fashion thing.

       I'm wondering about the entrance fee. Two pounds or *seventy* dollars?

       The prize money is a lot bigger in America!!??   

       Sorry - should that be $7?

       Having lost my hat on the way to work this morning, I will croissant this. I never ever look good in hats except for the elaborate ones we make between present-opening and lunch on Christmas day, using all the biggest bits of wrapping paper left over. The warm hat I lost this morning was a child's ski hat I bought in France last winter, Red fleece on the outside, yellow on the inside, ear flaps and string to tie it under your chin. I fell asleep on the bus, woke up to get off at my stop and couldn't see where I'd dropped it. Drat.

       I'll let you know if I see it.

       Have you seen the sort of people who officiate at elections? If there's anyone less qualified to judge a fashion show, they're probably frozen to death by a railway junction. But opening the postal ballots would be fun.

       I have a really neat hat - It's quite warm and it seems to be a French child's ski hat with red fleece on the outside, yellow on the inside. There are are ear flaps and string which I tie under my chin. Would you believe I found it on a bus?

       That's odd. On the bus home from work today I was attacked by a small, furry animal. It had big flappy ears and long whiskers; it was *yellow* on the outside, but when I cut it open it was *red* on the inside.

       I love hats. People whould wear hats more often. (but not baseball caps) (+)
