Spring Speech Contest

Hello Fellow Toastmasters!

What an evening we had last night.  It was our Spring Contest meeting and it was spectacular.  Charlie served as sergeant at arms and had the whole room ready for us.  Sheetal was our Contest Master.  She was a natural and kept the meeting running smoothly.  Bill Sullivan was our Chief Judge and was all business. 

We started with the International Contest.  Amy spoke of a ship of dreams.  Sharon spoke about Rosa Parks.  Heather beseeched us with the problems of cell phones.   

 It was then on to the Tabletopics Contest.  The question involved finding a multi colored rock that crashes to earth and bestows special powers on the person holding it.   The SIX contestants all had a go at it:  Tom, Rob, Phil, Donald, Bo and Hollie.  It was a challenge.

The judges tallied up the results and we had a drum roll!

Sharon took first place in the International Contest.

Tom took first place in the Table Topics.  Bo came in second place. 

A VERY SPECIAL THANKS has to go out to Crystal for all the behind the scene organization she did.  Her dedication to this club shows through with all the hard work and effort she puts in.

It was a great evening!

Now three announcements:
1.     Next meeting April 2nd.
2.     Dues are Due!  Bring your checkbook to the meeting if you did not pay yet.
3.     Area 34 contest right here in Cromwell- Covenant Village-April 10th.  Cheer you champions on!
-Rob, current President
