It was one of the most enjoyable Area contests I have been to and it was a chance to catch up with Toastmaster friends in the other Area 30 clubs as well as meet new ones.

The next Area 30 contest – the International Speech and Evaluation contest, will be hosted by Waverley Communicators in Edinburgh.  The date has yet to be confirmed but it will probably be around March or April 2013.
