W6 Humorous Speech & Speech Evaluation Contest

Dear Fellow Members,

There were so many twists and turns days before the Area W6 Humorous Speech & Speech Evaluation Contest. First of all, there was this possibility of Lim Hin Chong not able to contest in the Humorous Speech Contest. He was under quarantine due to his colleagues confirmed down with H1N1. Things seemed to settle down on Friday morning as he completed his 7 days of quarantine.
Something happened again! At the eleventh hour that is on Friday evening, Simon Soh was unable to participate because he lost his voice. Poor Mun Yuen, she was caught in the cross fire since she was the 2nd Runner Up for the Humorous Speech Contest. For your information, Area W6 consists of only 4 clubs this term. Hence, the Champion and 1st Runner Up of each club will contest at the Area level.

I take this opportunity to salute Mun Yuen for taking up the challenge and did fantastically well to entertain the audience with her creative humour. Soo Pon, being the 2nd Runner Up for the Evaluation Contest also came in at the eleventh hour to stand in for myself as I had to stand in for Simon in the Evaluation Contest.

I am proud to announce the winners for the Area Contests as follows:

Humorous Speech Contest
Champion : Suresh Mohan [SAI Masters TMC]
1st runner-up : Suthaharan [SAI Masters TMC]
2nd runner-up : Lim Hin Chong
