BUTLINS SKEGNESS
Adult Competitions 1973 and 1974

MISS SHE COMPETITION
The 'Miss She' Competition was to find the 'best-dressed lady,'
and was as competitive, if not more so, than the 'Holiday Princess' competition.

MISS ELEGANCE COMPETITION
The 'Miss Elegance' Competition varied only slightly from the 'Miss She' Competition,
in that the entrants also scored points for their personality, rather than purely for their outfit.

IT'S A FREEZE-OUT

The afternoon started of sunny - which called for sunglasses.

Then the infamous Skegness 'bracing air' kicked in - which called for sou'westers.

MISS CHE-CHE COMPETITION
Today you would have to describe this Competition as being a personality competition for the 'larger lady.'  Back in 1973, however, we were out to prove that 'Fat Ladies are Fun' -
with the title 'Miss Che Che' standing for: "Chubby, Charming and Cheerful."

Three typical winners of the 'Miss Che Che' competition; three ladies who were on the large
side, but dressed nicely, and weren't afraid to have a bit of fun. Tell that to the 'PC brigade.'

No! that isn't the 'Holiday Princess' winner, officiating at Friday afternoon's Prize-Giving
(she's the one on the left). The lady with me was actually the winner of that week's
'Miss Che Che' Competition, who decided to treat us to one more look at her fabulous body.
I still haven't fully recovered!
