Thanks Mal - sorry that Rod and I were not able to be there to share in the fun!

For those who don't know the story, I'd like to give you the background to Janine Keating, whose name crops up in the performance results more than once.

Janine was introduced to Bush Poetry for the very first time just two weeks prior to the Bundy Muster in July, when she met Margy McArdle from the Bundy Poets. She was immediately captivated by it and began to read as much as she could, including the prize winning poems on our website poetry page.

She had never been exposed to our art form, and she had never performed on stage. She came to the Bundy Muster and entered the one minute cup - drawing the title "Did I Do That?" She wrote her first poem - telling the story of her intro to bush poetry and debut on stage, climaxing it with "Did I do that? You bet I did!" She got a standing ovation and won the cup.

Since then Janine's passion for poetry has only increased. She has performed at local events and she has started to write. She also prides herself on digging up little known gems by our traditional poets. Bob, I know you have shared the stage with her and Margy recently - she was delighted to listen to your performance.

We have kept in contact by email and I have been encouraging her to continue to soak up as much good poetry as she can - and to learn from it, as I have.

I don't think she is a Forum member yet, but I'd like to congratulate her on her achievements. I'm sure you'll agree that it is a real pleasure to see new poets and performers emerge.

Congratulations also to all other winners at the North Pine event.

Cheers, Shelley

And not hard on the eye either. She will be a force to be reckonedd with. Not sure that she feels that comps are her thing but performance yes. We are doing a show at Turkey beach in a couple of weeks
