Also see . . . The Spam Contest. The Isleton Chamber of Commerce tells about the Spam Contest:
During the floods of 1996, Isleton, families who were displaced by the floods were offered shelter by Ralph and Charli Hand, owners of the Hotel Del Rio. When people visited their homes, they remarked that the labels on the Spam cans were the only labels that survived. Charli decided to make some fun of it and the Spam Contest was created.
