Our two Waverley contestants at the Area 30 contest on 30th September were Pauline Dix, Humorous Speech contestant and Moira Beaton who was runner up in the Table Topics contest.
Congratulations to Jim Boyd, winner of the Humorous Speech contest.
and to Steve Priddle-Higson, winner of the Table Topics contest.
Both Jim and Steve are members of Linlithgow Speakers and will represent Area 30 at the Division E contest at Donnington Park racecourse on 21st October.
Medha de Alwis , Area 30 Assistant Governor, chaired the contest with grace and enthusiasm, and Gerry Dunn, President of Glasgow Toastmasters was Chief Judge.
Kevin Lee, Area 30 Governor, presented the awards and gave the vote of thanks at the end.
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.
