Hat Contest Rules and Tips:

Get a “base” hat, e.g. Pirate hat, sombrero, cowboy hat, beach hat, etc.

Put several decorations on it, based on the list below. You don’t have to include everything here of course, but the more you have from the list, the more “points” you get!

There’ll be voting for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place.

Tip: Make it strong and permanent, to wear at other large Parrot-Head gatherings, here and abroad.
View an example here from the Buffett Info website, and here's another example from Pinterest. (Remember though, you've got to make your own, not buy a pre-decorated hat!)
