Founder Fred Karger, Treasurer, Shane Miller and leading Calendar Contest Model Ryan Whitacre made a road trip to San Diego last Thursday for the opening night trio of receptions and to meet the 650 attendees from all over North America who were kicking off their annual gathering at the Westin Hotel. We met hundreds of reporters, producers, directors, and executives from all over. Most were very familiar with our campaign to SAVE the BOOM!!! having covered the story, but those who had not heard of us, can’t say that anymore. Thank you Ryan for attending to give the media an in person look at a Men of Laguna Beach Calendar Contest Finalist.
