We also held our Tall Tales Contest last Thursday night. There were 7 participants who did not fail to give us some pretty crazy stories! Adrian Scott came in Third Place with his entertaining tale about his time on the CBLB swat team. (Next time you see Adrian, ask him to demonstrate his rappelling technique for you.) Claudia Connor came in Second Place with her funny story about how luck led her and her husband to Mickey and Minnie Mouse outfits and tickets to see the Rolling Stones!! And Deborah Bartucci came in First Place with her hilarious tale of roller blading on the deck of a cruise ship, and finishing with an impressive landing in the ocean! Congratulations to all contestants and especially to our 3 winners.
Claudia and Deborah will be going on to the Area Tall Tales Contest held Monday May 26th, hosted by Trafalgar Toastmasters in the Oakville Public Library on Navy Street. Adrian will be on stand-by should Claudia or Deborah not be unable to attend. Please note: the Area Tall Tales Contest will start at 7:15pm. Please come out and cheer on Deborah and Claudia at the Area contest on May 26th.
