It was a very close contest. There was almost nothing to separate the three highest placed speakers on my chart. For me, the biggest boots was finding that the judge sitting next to me was also from the Hutt Valley, and happy to give me a lift home, which will have made over an hour of difference to me. So after a too short night's sleep, it's off to my own club, where I am speaking this morning. It will be my first prepared speech for quite some time.
