He didn't win First Prize and in this particular contest there is no
other place to be.
Megan Lawrie won the comp - she is a great performer and shared the
Starmaker Grand finals with Chalkie in Tamworth this year.
However, Chalkie did us proud and put in his very best performance -
he was ecstatic with the crowd's reaction and the great comments from
the judges who took forever to come to a decision and said there was
"only a matchstick between the marks".
Everyone on Norfolk Island has been very encouraging and Chalkie is
having a ball!
