CONTESTANTS

Sue-On surprised Bill 
when she got up to do the "Tarmangani" yell!
. . . and won first prize : )

Unfortunately, 
she missed snapping some of the contestants . . .
she couldn't even take her own picture...

Luckily we have a photo from our archive:
"The Day Jane Learned 
the Tarzan Yell from Her Mate"

.

Joan Bledig led the line-up in the female category...
She definitely left no doubt in everyone's mind as to what Jane wanted ;-)
"TARZAN! You come down from that tree. . . right now!!!"

 Author - Jane: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan
which featured Commentary, a Video Presentation and a
