    Great Contest last night! Thanks to all the speakers, helpers and guests. Last night was the culmination of lots of hard work and practice by the speakers and it showed. Their polished speaking abilities and sense of humor were on show last night. One thing that became clear to me last night was that you can learn as much from watching other people speak and see their progress as you can from delivering your own speech. Being pushed in new directions can sometimes bring out the best in people. Ryan and Gifford clearly stepped it up and Keith showed a keen wit that I had never seen before.

    I hope all the guests enjoyed the contest and look forward to seeing them at future meeting!

    A happy welcome to our new members! Let the journey begin! What a great contest last night! All the three speeches were hilarious! Gifford, took us to Switzerland, where he planned to eat too much cheese , Keith made disco come alive, showing us his special moves, and Ryan recounted his ordeal with the worst customers/couple on earth! Our contest master, Klyde, did a fantastic job of creating a festive environment with music and well prepared agendas. He conducted the event with style and humor. Klyde is an inspiring presence, and we are lucky to have him at our club! Thanks Leigh for stepping up to do in Table Topics contest. So excited that our guests participated so enthusiastically, explaining how they would spend a million dollars in a weekend! ! Well done everyone!
