Light & Shadow #5

Moscow, ID Circa 1979

Move over Halloween, it’s ‘Staggerette Day’. 

A yearly event of The Lady Elks — an auxiliary to the B.P.O.E. fraternal organization — Staggerette Day was held at the local golf course and included some combination of golf, drinking, and costumes. 

My attendance at the event was post-golf and from what I remember of the participants, well into the drinking phase. It was never clear whether the costumes were donned before the golf event or after.

Alas, my subject wore an outfit more conducive to taking pictures of her friends than swinging a club, but that too would have been quite a sight.
