Meet Ida Ljungqvist, The 2009 Playmate of the Year!

The Glamourcon On-The-Road Team made the trek on May 2nd to the jewel of Las Vegas, the Palms Hotel and Casino, to meet the newest jewel of Playboy, 2009 Playmate of the Year, Ida Ljungqvist.

After plane rides and drives through the desert, the Glamourcon OTR Team met up with 450 other attendees at the Palms to celebrate the installation of Ida, the newest Playmate of the Year and the 50th Playmate of the Year. The event was packed with 50 Playmates and Playmates of the Year, Playboy friends and business associates and, of course, Hugh Hefner.

We were greeted at the elevators by three lovely bunnies from the Palms' Playboy Club and, after signing in, were treated to wonderful Palms appetizers and drinks in the foyer delivered by the beautiful models. By the way, if you go there, you must try their Pomegranate Daiquiris... outstanding! Playmates from all six decades began to arrive and many posed for photos in the special photo-op area but also took the time to talk with their friends and fans. It was old home week for our team since so many of the Playmates had come to prior Glamourcons.

After lots of photos, conversation and too many sliders, we selected our seats in the adjacent ballroom which was adorned with photos of Ida. If there was any prior doubts of who the PMOY was going to be, it was immediately removed when you looked around the room. The room was set up much like the PMOY luncheon at the Mansion with a large stage, photographer's box and dinner tables. New for this year, were oversized monitors that delivered a video feed from the stage so, no matter where you were in the room, you had a great view of all the festivities.

After a beautiful surf and turf dinner and wine, Rob Hilburger from Playboy, welcomed everyone to the event and introduced the host of the event, PMOY 2001, Brande Roderick. Brande was looking great and did a very smooth job of her introduction duties. George Maloof, owner of the Palms remarked that many people ask him if he is going to be the next Hef but he said there is only one Hef. Finally Hef, who was looking great, took the stage and said he felt this was the best place he could think of to host the 50th Playmate of the Year function. He introduced Ida and it was official! Ida was given a one of a kind special bottle of Patron, a Mazda 6 and, of course, a check for $100,000. It was great to watch Ida speak as she calmly thanked all the people who helped her on her way to PMOY punctuated by exclamations of sheer delight and she stopped her speech to, in her words, "take it all in." She was stunning and her dress was, in a word, perfect!

After a photo opportunity with Ida and all the Playmates, the event came to an end. Many of us stayed to talk and some made their way to the Playboy Club upstairs. What a night!

There are many reports in the news about exactly who was there but we will let our pictures tell the story.

Needless to say, the OTR Team had a wonderful time and we thank the folks at Playboy for inviting us.
