Area 30 Contest – Waverley Members Through To The Next Round


Congratulations to Moira Beaton and Eileen Scott who are through to the next round in the Humorous Speech and Table Topics Contests. Paul Bailey who also competed in the Humorous Speech contest delivered an hilarious speech about his schooldays in a Jesuit College – his demonstration of the masters’ weapon of choice at the school, the ferula, was superb but sadly Paul was not placed. The competition was fierce!

 Humorous Speech Contest

1st Sheila Fraser, Linlithgow Speakers

2nd Eileen Scott, Waverley Communicators

3rd Edwyn Newman, Capital Communicators


Table Topics Contest

1st Moira Beaton, Waverley Communicators
