1 Aug: Humourous Contest...

Posted by LP User on Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Under: Contests
What a magic Humourous Contest and evening we all shared last week! Well done to everyone who contributed to making the evening such a huge success and for such a big turnout of guests - we were packed to overflowing!

Alana's Youth Leadership Program presentation was a delight and the quality of the speeches and the level of entertainment was extraordinary. Seeing the students delivering their speeches was an inspiration to us all no doubt and testiment to how important the YLP is in helping young people find their voice. Well done Alana!

This year's Humourous Speaking Contest showcased a brilliant array of speeches that had us laughing till we cried. Alana, Ruth, Sandi, Francois, Babette, Verity & Neville took part and the calibre was so high that judging was tough enough to require a tie break. In the end it was Francois who walked away with the title of Best Speaker for his hilariously funny speech "When Will I See My Mother Again? A True Story".
Our Impromptu Speech Contest had 4 entrants (Mallorie, Verity, Sandi & Babette), who all had to use the phrase "Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining". Verity won Best Impromptu Speech, and so Francois, Alana, Verity & Sandi will be representing Two Oceans at the Area Contest on 12th September at the Good Hope Club.

We finished the evening by having a new member join us - Melanie Steyn - and are looking forward to having her as a part of Two Oceans Toastmasters! All in all a laughter filled evening that stood testiment to what a wonderful club we have : )
