31. I let my rant get away with me a bit
The solicitation bit might've been an anomaly; I don't know. This being a West Coast city, pageants might not be as well-received as they might be in the South or Midwest. Also, that was 16 years ago, and things do change.

I can tell you this, though: many Jaycees chapters, including mine, stopped doing the pageants because they were such a pain in the ass. I wasn't a committee "insider," but I believe the main PITA source was in dealing with the Junior Miss people.

Again, this is only my personal experience.

Btw, there was a movie about this some years ago called "Smile." It's sort of a dark comedy.
