A big thank you to all who participated and helped out with this years Club Contests. Special thanks to our judges Roseann, Ellen, and Connie, and test speaker Roseann Funston (Area 32 governor). And to our Seargent-at-arms for arriving early and setting up.
We are also pleased to welcome dual member Claire McInnes from New Zealand. We thoroughly enjoyed your humorous speech and look forward to having you in our club.
Each year Toastmasters conduct speaking competitions. They start at club level and winners move up. The final stage is in the USA. The Innisfail club had its “International” and “Table topics” contests on the 12th of August and the “Humorous” and “Evaluation” contest on the 26th of August. All club members take part either as competitors or judges. Contest nights are exciting and fun events with plenty of opportunity to learn. Visitors may come and listen.
First Place getters were Susan for the International Speech, Claire for the Humorous Speech, Andrea for Table Topics, and Claire for Evaluation.
The next level of competition will be the Area 32 Contest to be held at Malanda RSL on 18th October 2014.
All the best. See you at Malanda.
