2018-2019 Royalty Contest

Behold, the annual Royalty Contest!  This is your chance to become true Royalty of the Abominable while raising money for the Endowment.  Up for grabs are three titles: King, Queen, and Royal Pain in the Ass.  The candidate who raises the most funds gets to choose the title they most desire… second-highest fundraiser chooses from the remaining two titles… and third-highest fundraiser receives the remaining title.  The goal of the Royalty Contest is to raise $5,000.

Royalty candidates will be accepted NOW through the evening of December 18, 2018, when the money will be collected, tallied, and winners revealed during the Abominaball.  Contact any member of the Endowment board to throw your name in the hat as a candidate — no previous experience or band membership required.
