Pick a day


Wednesday, May 29, 2013's Lowdown

All right, you mother shuckers. With the 2013 Oyster Fest just about two weeks away, the rumor goin’ round the LCC offices is that hundred-time KWPT The Point’s Shuck and Swallow Contest champions Connor Eckholm and Aiden Semingson (pictured above) are tired dominating the competition and are closing up their iron stomachs for business. What the shuck?!

This means this year's field is wide open -- unless of course Connor and Aiden are playing possum because they're bored of winning fair and square. Either way, seize the smelly day while contest slots remain. You and a teammate can sign up by calling DJ Carole Ann at 786-5978. 

Oh ya. Lookin' for something to do today? Check your Lowdown below.
