Ahhh, the Toonie Awards! - 5/07

May, 2007 -Ahhh, the Toonie Awards!

We had a blast this year! Our distinguished guest speaker, Paul Chadwick graced the podium with highlights from his dazzling career as well as some poignant advice.chadwick

The CNW Quest for Answers was also a hit, as attendees had to draw random lots- some pulled questions, some answers- and they where then forced to mingle in order to be entered into the grand prize drawing! 4 winners were chosen, at random, and each received a fine piece of original, Paul Chadwick artwork and an autographed book from his heralded Concrete series.

We also raffled off tons of swag and enjoyed delicious meals with lake front views. The CNW Charity coloring book was unveiled, many awards were given and much acclaim and ego-stroking ensued. Mark Monlux swept the clay contest…again, and long time member, Sherry Flenniken , was awarded the coveted Golden Toonie.

The night even included a debut appearance by the Amazing Martin Brothers, a group of well groomed young lads whose claim to fame rested entirely on their skewed, 60's folk-rock covers.

All in all a blow out night! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to produce this truly fantastic event! this truly fantastic event!
