Leslie’s history of the Mexican toga party: It all started 30 years ago at The Blasing Farm outside of Hondo, Texas. When I was a junior in high school and wanted to have a party after our high school junior/senior play performance of M*A*S*H* (I was Hot Lips!)
At this Toga Party I wanted to serve Mexican food, so I decided to call it a Mexican Toga Party. Around this same time, the steady entourage of friends that were always at our farm, decided to have certain games with staunch competion – horseshoes was a mainstay, strobe light tennis, tetherball and other games were added through the years. It is only fitting that these games, food and fun have lasted througout the years and traveling with me all the way down here to the Island. The experience is priceless!! Make sure you join in as an Olympian or on the sidelines in your Toga cheering on your favorite athletes into the history books for the 33rd year celebration!

The 1st Annual Penguin Plunge was held on January 1, 2013 at Boomerang Billy’s Beach Bar.
The International Idiots Club joined with Andy Hancock, who is a master at sand sculpturing, for a brand new tradition to ‘wing in the New Year’! Several hundred people showed up to take a dip in the chilly waters of the Gulf in celebration of 2013.
Besides the encounter with cold waves, there was music by Leslie Blasing, FREE sand castle lessons and a raffle for a wooden Penguin, which Andy carved on the beach in front of a crowd that gathered at Boomies. All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the treatment of Hydrocephalus, a medical condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of fluid on the brain.
Because of the successful turnout of this FIRST-EVER event, plans are being made to make it an annual event.
The International Idiots Club will hold its Annual Member Appreciation Day on January 20, 2013 at Boomerang Billy’s Beach Bar and Grill in South Padre Island, Texas. The festivities will be from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.

To make a nomination submit a name and the reason why you think your nominee should be selected. So what if you want to nominate yourself? Go ahead…but you will have to tell us what you REALLY DID to be considered.
There is only one catch to the process, the nominee must be a bonafide Idiot with a current active International Idiots Club membership. If you do not know the if the person’s membership is current, just use our web site, select the Advanced Member Search and type their name then select FIND AN IDIOT. The last two columns lists the month and year the membership was issued so you will just have to figure out one year from that date is their EXPIRATION DATE. If you just want to submit the person’s name with the reason, the judges will determine the nominees membership status for you.

2) Mail the information which must be postmarked by January 17th, 2013.
Our Mailing Address:
