The second annual Miss Tootsie pageant drew a crowd to the Wadena Memorial Auditorium to watch male pillars of the community appear in formal gowns and hula skirts in spite of deep voices and armpit hair.


Contestants included Wayne Wolden as Ivana B. DiMare, Doug Curtis as Constant Lee Doodling, Erik Olson as Penny Pincher and John Kempf as Meg A. Byte.

Aaron Larson, a.k.a. Gyna Cology, was unable to make it to the pageant.
