Peter obliged. He was very modest about his win. He said that all 6 speakers did very well, but that he thought that he would probably come behind either VJ or Martin or both. The judges thought otherwise.

He told us about various parts of the speech, but particularly one section where he messed up his routine with the two bricks he used and spent too much time kneeling with them. After the contest was over quite a few people came to congratulate him, and particularly one person who congratulated him on that part of the speech as quite brilliant. Wow!

The Rotator to the right shows Peter in action, speaking to our meeting. Note some kneeling shots.
