On Saturday July 20th, Fido’s Courtyard was the arena for the National Lighthouse Lager Rock Paper Scissors Competition. The competition is the first of its kind in Belize, and has been sweeping the country by storm. Competitors from each district destination have been partaking in the competition and on Saturday night, the Lighthouse crew came to San Pedro scouting the island for the best RPS (Rock, Paper, Scissors) “athlete.” Challengers arrived from as early as 7PM, signing up to secure their places in the competition and of course fuel up on the loads of free Lighthouse!
Competitors did a pre game interview (see webisodes here: http://bit.ly/17zw7Jk) with the lovely host Melissa Coleman and the Lighthouse crew, giving a bit of insight on their game strategies and even strutted a few dance moves (Joe Chung, we saw you) for all the viewers. Tension was high as competitors put their game faces on to see just whose scissor would cut paper, whose paper would cover rock and whose rock would crush scissor! After several knock out rounds of scissor crushing and paper cutting it, was Shirlee Arnold and Grant Lee that would ultimately face off to represent San Pedro in the national Finals. After the three sets of RPS-ing, the winner of the competition,and taking home a free six -pack and case of lighthouse was Grant Lee.
1st Place- Grant Lee (Advancing to Finals), 2nd Place- Shirlee Arnold, 3rd- Mark Maggiato, 4th Place- Ronald Blair
Grant will go on to represent San Pedro in the finals on August 3rd in Belize City at the Hour Bar where he will compete against zone winners from Belize City, San Ignacio, Orange Walk, Hopkins and Plaencia. Good Job Grant, The San Pedro Sun and Lighthouse lovers wish you the best of luck in the Finals
