CONGRATULATIONS to Connie DiPietro-Sparacino, who wowed the audience with her SLAM piece at the July 9th WCDR breakfast meeting. She took home $100 and the fabulous and coveted cheesy gavel trophy!
And congrats to all the competitors. The votes were close, because everyone did such a stellar job. Kudos to Phil Dwyer, Velma Blenman, Gwynn Scheltema, Ruth Walker, Helene Paquin and Mike Khashmanian for providing us with such provocative pieces.
Thank you to everyone who turned out to audition in June, plus all those who were in the audience at that meeting and the breakfast meeting.
BIG THANK-YOUS TO JAMES DEWAR for helping to organize this year’s SLAM competition, and to EYTAN CROUTON, for entertaining us with his award-winning SLAM style while the votes were being counted.
Wasn’t it fun?
