Club Contest – Evaluation, International Prepared Speech

Meeting – Tuesday 28th February 2012

Centralpark hosted their annual Evaluation and International Prepared Speech club contests.

Many thanks to Jo and Eric for chairing these contests.

Well done to Ben, Brenda, Clinton and Glenn L for competing. Clinton took top honours with his impressive international speech “It’s just a scar” and will live to tell his thrilling tales again when he represents at the Area contest. Ben will also go forward and compete in Evaluations. Congratulations!

Special thanks to our judges for sacrificing their sleep to be there early. Also special mention to Dave who had everyone in stitches with his test speech when he took on Glenn F’s challenge to talk about the office stapler. His speech was a laugh-out-loud classic from the Hire Quip office and should definitely be considered for the Humorous contest.

Once again – another meeting full of zest and inspired learning. What a way to kick off our Tuesday morning! See you all at the next meeting on Tuesday 13 March – bright and early.
